Here is my dilemma. My '88 K-5 tailgate won't open. The window comes all the way down and all that but I have a manual regulator anyway. I opened up the tailgate shell and the hardware that connects the rod from the release latch to the rods that pull the latches back is missing. I know I already need a regulator because my crank on the outside is broke and can't be locked. How can I can I find someone who deals in this hardware without having to pay dealership prices? I have looked practically everywhere and have located the parts through carparts.com but I am not sure exactly what hardware comes with the regulator and tailgate release assembly. Does anyone know if the rods and everything come with the release? Thanks in advance.
