The replacement tailgate
vent cover plates are made up of two 16 gauge plates. The
custom designed (DTOM) image is bolted
over top of a solid piece of 6061 aluminum for a unique look and
contrasting images if either the inner or outer plates are painted.
These two plates are
spaced out on the bottom to allow air flow while replacing the factory
on your tailgate. The plates are a direct bolt on using existing holes
in the tailgate. Black powder coating option for the outer steel plate is available on this part only.
kit also includes three plastic plugs, (1) large and (2) small, to cap
off the wires that use to pass through the tailgate for the 3rd brake
light and the large cone shaped rubber snubbers that prevented the spare
tire from vibrating when driving.
