    Sorry to post this in here guys, but I need a tailgate real bad my window wont roll down, and in trying to roll it down I broke the handle completely off, I opened it up and the rails that hold the window are all rusted out and falling apart, so I need a tailgate with a good handle and good rail to hold the window, if I could get one in California that would be alot better so I wont pay for the shipping, I could probably drive to pick it up, thanks alot guys.

    check out my new site, thanks Steve!

    Sounds like you may not need an entire gate just the insides most of which can be purchased through cataloges or at the dealership. I have the diagrams for the iner workings and the names of all the parts, but the last guy I sent them to never said thank you . I could however be persuaded to send them to you for such a meager cost, due upon arrival ofcourse

    Hey bud the check's in the mail already I just need to know for how much, but you know what I was thinking if I buy the inners only they'll probably run me more than a good used tailgate, I've checked prices on some of the inner parts and they are expensive what ya think?

    ps. "THANK YOU" see I say thank you.

    have you checked with gm on those window parts? I just got the window channels, the rollers, guides, and other parts at my local chevy dealer. had them in stock. I have a tailgate that works, but i'm in ny. outside handle is available from lmc trucks for 30 something.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    I've got a tailgate, too bad I live in Tennessee. The window rolls up and down, but the shell has cracks at the top corners. I'm in process of replacing it as you are reading this.

    Hey Chaka I 'm trying to send you that diagram and text but it might take a while,, something about the text screws up my computer for some reason so it takes forever... theres no bug or any thing I think its the operator...later

    My rear window and all the rails and such was replaced for 248.00, the listing for the rails came from the dealer and was about 60.00. You should go to the dealer and at least ask...
    And I have the diagrams and parts list as well and do not require a thank you or any monetary compensation...just ask...
