Is this a good price?

So i found an 08 tailgate, complete in perfect condition. Is $300 a good price? And i will have to paint it because its white (my truck is red). I dont really know what they go for and what paint costs. Any help is appreciated. And I need a tailgate anyways, mine is banged up purty good.

I don't really know if that is a good price but is sounds like it. I know there are a couple of members that have done that conversion. Wonder what they spend on their tailgate. Like to 08 tail gates.

Lol. I don't care about the camera. I don't want the bar either. The step I might not mind with the truck being lifted though. I don't know if this one has any of that stuff. I might see if the guy will take 200. I definitly think it would be worth it for that.

I paid 250 for a new white one AND a set of 08 tail lights AND the rear wiring harness.

do you still have it? I am looking for an oem gate. My truck came with a slotted one which does not hold gravel in the bed very well.

Re: Is this a good price?

What shape is the bed in? Keep your eyes peeled and you can find the whole bed, tailgate, and lights for a good price from a place that puts utility boxes on them.

I was looking for one as was another member. Found a bunch on ebay for cheap, but they were too far. I pm'd the other member and he picked it up for about 550 I think.

Just something to consider.
