I didnt believe that parts existed for my 1995 truck
When the tailgate on my 1995 C1500 wouldnt stay up anymore, I figure that I would need to go to a pick and pull yard to get it fixed. I searched youtube for how to fix it and found a video my 1A Auto. The video not only told me what to look for, but also made the repair look very easy. The guy in the video even stated exactly what drive heads were required since I hadnt a clue (T40 for the screws, fyi) I ordered the parts to replace the entire tailgate handle and rod assembly and the total was less than I expected. The parts arrived 5 days earlier than I was told. Using the video, I was able to repair the tailgate in less than an hour.

Perfect Replacements
Replaced the tailgate latch rods on my 1998 Silverado, and these were a perfect fit. The video made the project simple. If you need to replace the plastic snaps that hold the rods to the latch, you must order the latch as well (which is equally easy to install).

In the video they say the clips come with the rods. This is not the case. FALSE ADVERTISING.They have been reported to the BBB and the attorney generals office for false advertising, These people are scam artists.
