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 K-Metal. K-Metal 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 K-Metal tailgate will look and fit just like a tailgate from the dealer, so your vehicle will look new again. K-Metal 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 K-Metal 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 K-Metal tailgate is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A K-Metal tailgate will get you back on the road in a truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. K-Metal is so confident in the quality of its tailgates that they're backed by a limited 1 year 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.
With many years of experience K-Metal® can be rightfully called a strong player in the automotive aftermarket. The brand's history traces back to 1984. Since that time the company manufactures the highest quality replacement parts including hoods, grilles, doors, radiators, bumpers, mirrors, headlights, fender panels and many more. Body replacement parts by K-Metal will help you get back the original look of your vehicle. The K-Metal parts are expertly made of durable and strong materials to ensure long-lasting service life.
