    sorry for the glare but in that pic you can see that the left side hinge is gone due to rust, the tailgate is also trashed i am going to get a new one. my question is, whats the easiest way to fix those hinges. does LMC or Chevy Duty sell a part to fix this? thanks in advance

    Or you could do like me and replace that whole tail pan with some square tubing, and then run a tailgate with the stock pickup hinges, which bolt right on to the K5.

    New Tail pan Modification

    Custom Tail gate


    Hope this helps...
