    I did a search but could not find a post that listed the years a pickup tailgate would work on a 87 K5. Would someone that has done this swap please give me the years to look for in a tailgate.

    Not sure on the years but I put a 78 Model Pickup truck tailgate on my 81 K5.

    If you just stay within a few years 87 and below it should work.

    Don't forget to get all the hardware from the truck bed. It will bolt right up and looks pretty good.

    Regards,

    Stacey

    73-91.

    The early years weren't power glass though.

    I think he wants a PU gate, but the years should still apply. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
