These Tailgate Latch Kits will come with everything you need to swap out your old tailgate hardware to this new kit. The kit reuses your factory handle and rods that connect the handle to the latches. Installation requires ZERO welding. Cutting is also limited to just the removal of one tab per side, which is then covered up by the new latch mounting plate. All the holes for mounting are existing holes. One per side needs to be modified/ drilled out/ enlarged to accommodate a nutsert (provided with the kit). This is a fairly easy install that most anyone can handle. It will not damage the factory paint at all, as long as you're careful cutting off the tab in the tail gate jamb area. The brackets come in raw steel so that you can paint match them to your truck.

Kit Includes:

  • 2x Latches
  • 2x Raw Steel Tailgate Latch Mount
  • 2x Raw Steel Bed Bracket/Cable Mount
  • 2x Tailgate Cables
  • Templates

*Additional mounting hardware is included, factory latch hardware will be required
