Chevy Silverado 2001-2003, Tailgate by Replace®. On a pickup truck, no body panel is abused as much the tailgate, especially on a working truck. Instead of searching in vain for a good used tailgate or paying high dealer prices for a new one, get a Replace tailgate. Replace has quality replacement tailgates that are identical to original equipment (OE) for much less than the OE price.

After many years of hard use, some tailgates are so scratched, dented and warped that it just doesn't make sense to repair them. If you've got one like that or your tailgate is severely rusted or collision damaged, repairing the damage is out of the question and the only sensible alternative is replacement.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged tailgate were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE tailgate. Searching for a useable tailgate from a scrap yard is a waste of time, because you don't know its history and you may end with something that's been previously damaged and repaired with excess body filler. And many cheap replacement panels don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge sheet metal.
Today you can fix your truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement tailgate from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace tailgate will look and fit just like a tailgate from the dealer, so your vehicle will look new again. Replace tailgates are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace tailgate is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge steel.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace tailgate is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace tailgate will get you back on the road in a truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its tailgates that they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
