Looked Nice. But did fit.
Based on all the info this was a perfect fit for my 2005 Silverado 3500. Right on target time wise per the video until discovery that tailgate would not fit on. Went to body shop and they confirmed the hinge part in the body was not correct size. Replaced with GM part and magic it worked. Fortunately GM sells hinge by the piece. But not good since I could not return to 1a Auto. Good news is the tailgate is operational. And next time more diligence will be used when selecting non OEM part.
