Not an exact fit
The part was not an exact fit it requires some modification. The quality is ok it did work. The gaps on either side of the gate cannot be made even. All in all for the price a good replacement.

Seemed like a great deal
I was happy to find this kit with most of the components I planned to replace, however upon installation I found the brackets/hinges weren't quite shaped correctly and the tailgate cables were not the same length. I wish a little more quality control had been exercised.
