Default Tailgate supports

The old metal ones always rattled. Dorman help part# 38541 tailgate cables fix that problem. Gonna get a washer for the quick disconnect so the gate won't come off so easy.

On my to do list! I hate the hinged ones that come factory.

I tried the frontier cables, but found them to be a bit too long.

Fit mine good. Description said 98 to 05, but the package said 01-05.

This is something I've been wanting to figure out from a non-Hardbody donor at the yard. But most tailgates get swooped really quick, so there aren't many parts to experiment with.



Wondering what the discrepancy is here. Maybe it hangs a little low for a bumper and 91/94 has his deleted? Can you post a pic of the tailgate down?
