I was recently rear ended in my pickup. The tailgate was down due to slightly improved gas mileage. So, when I got hit, it mashed the pins and mounts on tailgate and truck. It left a hard crease in the area of the mounting pins on the tailgate. The Body shop tells me the tailgate needs to be replaced. So here is my dilemma. The Insurance Company wants to replace the tailgate with a MTVP tailgate, but the Auto Tech refuses to use that brand. The Auto Tech says I would have to go back to the body shop twice a year to have adjustments made to the tailgate. What I would like to know is this: Has anyone ever had one of these tailgates in the past 4 years? And if so what is your opinion.
