I installed an 08 tailgate on my 01 Super Duty. I Just want to help anyone else looking to do this. My 08 does not have the step so it made it very easy.
For anyone looking to do this here is all you need.

1. 08 Tailgate shell
2. 08 outer handle only
3. 08 emblem
4. 08 upper pad

You will re-use you straps, latches, rods, and inner handle mechanism.

I am in the auto collision industry so it came out very inexpensive. My cousin gave me the shell with slight damage which was fixed. The upper pad was 21.00 my cost and the handle was 21.00 my cost the rest was transfered from my old gate even the inner cover. I am doing the paint my self actually I was working on it today and will paint it on Monday ( white ) I also did the 05 conversion on the front end and a set of 20" factory wheels of the 06 Chrome package truck I will try to upload pics tommorow.

Tailgate cost

08 shell ( Free ) may be lunch for my cousin
08 handle 21.00
08 pad 21.00
paint and labor ( me )
_______________
42.00
everything else transfers from my gate

Get some stainless letters for the tailgate that would be sharp.
I am do you know where I can find them? I was actually online last knight looking for them. I had some on my cobra from UPR which where the best. I called them and they said they are working on them for Super Duty but won't be available till probably a month or two. I am going to set up my truck with white and chrome or stainless. I will leave all the black trim with a black low profile diamond plate tool box. I also ordered the third brake light cover in aluminum.

Thanks for the link but that is alot of money. I think the UPR COBRA letters cost me about 59.00 and they were also polished stainless. These are very thick and nice but that is alot of money. I will wait for UPR to manfactor them or paint the letters myself black when I paint the tailgate.
