    I think only the step sides are interchangable until mid 70's. You have a '72 tailgate? I'll try and find you a '73 gate to trade.

    My tailgate is rusted up so bad that I was only going to use it if it fit. Becouse its the only one I got. I had planned on cutting out all of the rust wich is about half the tailgat and walding sheet metal the full length of the gate inside and out with a custom chevy inlay to hold the license plate.
