96-04 Tacoma Tail Gate Reinforcement


Its a well known fact that the tail gate on the Tacoma is lacking some metal and bends easily under load. Simply loading an ATV, motorcycle, or garden equipment can bend the tail gate of these trucks before you even realize what is happening.

The solution? Replace the plastic tailgate cover with some real metal!

Our tail gate reinforcement plates are CNC cut and then precision formed on a CNC press brake for a factory-like fit. The end result is a more solid feeling and slightly heavier tail gate that is much stronger, and leaves the user with little worry of bending it under the most common loads.

Install:

These reinforcements will require drilling to attach to tailgate. Necessary hardware will be supplied.

*If ordering the steel reinforcement plate, please note that some type of finish is required before install to keep it from rusting. I would recommend a DIY bed liner coating. Aluminum can be left bare with some eventual oxidation, or coated in your choice of coating as well *

We also recommend some 'camper tape' adhesive foam along the back side of the lip on the reinforcement to protect the tailgate during install and use. There is approximately a 1/4" spacing from tailgate for adhesive backed foam paint protection if desired

AVAILABILITY:

Please note that these covers are usually in stock in bare metal, but some cases may be out of stock and made to order which may take 1-3 weeks to fabricate before shipping. Powder coat time is additional 2-3 weeks if optioned with the coating.
