I removed my tailgate the other day to make it easier to shovel out a yard of dirt. When I took it off, I saw a slotted part on the passenger side that I can only describe as some sort of alignment tab for the tailgate. I wanted to put an LED light strip under the tailgate, but that aligner will be in the way. Does anyone know if it's really all that necessary, and if it will cause any problems if I remove it. Thanks for any feedback.
