    I’m just curious; how and why would someone steal a tailgate?

    • Simon Jester

      The state insists on brining the road every chance they get. This leads to tailgates (and the rest of your car) rusting like crazy.

      The how is easy, unlatch tailgate, lift off.

      The why, is people are slime, and it’s easier to steal a replacement then buy one.

  • Bad Chad

    Happens all the time. Even though it sounds like its a waste, lock your tailgate.
