    Looking for a tailgate. 84 Jimmy or K5

    Looking for a tailgate for 84 Jimmy or K5 as mine is pretty rusted out. Power or manual window, I am not picky. Does anyone know where I would pick one of these up, as I have been looking for some time.

    That is a steal. LMC used to have them as well but I notice they recently quit selling them.

    The only problem is the shipping costs as much as the tailgate...
    I personally prefer LMC Truck as well mainly because Classic Industries website is very difficult to navigate to find what you need...

    Few days ago I ordered that tailgate, both doors and both front fenders... The shipping cost was the same as if I just ordered the tailgate alone...
    They had a 30% off promo going and it all cost about $690 with shipping...

    Spend $1k at LMC and shipping is free...just saying.

    Also, beware on fitment of those repopped body components. Hope it all lined up good for you. I've heard it's hit or miss...

    Yeah but LMC didn't have the tailgate... Was cheaper overall to order it all from Classic and pay shipping one time...

    Still waiting on them to ship the parts... The fenders and doors on it are rusted pretty good... I will make them fit..
