The way your pickup truck bed is designed, while useful, drags down your vehicle's MPGs. Fight back without losing any of your rig's practicality with the Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Tailgate.

This louvered fifth wheel tailgate allows you to maintain your pickup's heavy-duty workload while simultaneously improving its fuel economy. Whereas your tailgate blocks airflow and drags down aerodynamics, the Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Tailgate allows air to pass through, virtually eliminating drag altogether. A cut-out lets you use Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck hitches in tandem with this super-strong composite tailgate, and secure attachment comes thanks to coated cables and rotary latches. A center lock holds everything together in the closed position, and this Stromberg Carlson louvered tailgate folds down just like your factory one. If you want a little extra peace of mind, add the optional Privacy Strip Accessory Kit, which includes extra louvers that block the view into your bed.

Lessen the impact your truck's gas mileage has on your checkbook. Your search for better fuel economy is over thanks to the Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Tailgate. Backed by a 2-Year Warranty.

I am very happy with your product, the only problem that I had during the installation was with the tailgate’s locking mechanism not working. No worries though, it was a simple fix; the lock’s internal pins were not aligned properly, so once I realigned them it worked perfectly.

While the tailgate looks really nice now that I have it installed, the installation was a problem. The basic installation was simple until I went to put on the spacer pieces on both sides to close up the gabs. It turns out that the spacer pieces didn't fit the tailgate itself. I ended up having to modify them so that I could get the mounting screws in. At first I thought that I had them backwards or upside down. Nothing worked. After modifying the bottom of the spacers I was able to get them mounted finally.

Great-looking tailgate with a perfect fit on my '11 GMC Sierra. Installation was easy with just one minor issue (not even really an issue). For a perfect fit and appearance the end caps need to be adjusted for even spacing between the tailgate and the tail lights. Actually, if you aren't a perfectionist you probably wouldn't need to bother. But to make the adjustment you need to access the screw on the bottom of the cap. The tailgate needs to be removed to do that. It's a simple process but since the adjustment can't be made with the tailgate in place there was a little trial and error for perfection. Also, the factory striker bolts on my 2011 are a smaller diameter than the tailgate latch so there is a bit of sloppiness in the closed position. It's only sloppy when you push on the closed gate... not like it flops around when you drive. It's a tiny detail that is hardly worth mentioning. Almost immediately after placing my order I found this item cheaper. AAG stood by their price match guarantee and issued my $36 refund. This was an overall great purchase. Fast processing and shipping. Great work, AAG!
