Default Tailgates

A local guy has several tailgates for sale all 2005 up

My 2004 tailgate has a little dent in it. I know the 2005 tailgates are different in appearance on the back on the tailgate HOWEVER they look close in size and body contour.

My Question:

Do these taligates for the 2 different Frontier generations interchange?

Only real way to tell is to put a tape measure on it. I thought those gates were wider than the 2004-older trucks.

Have you tried paintless dent repair? Or just fixing the dent? Most likely any tailgate you find would need painting to match your truck.

I believe the tailgates up to 2004 interchange with the Hardbody trucks, 2005 should be bigger
