I have other products i have bought from him with no issues. I just noticed its a prebuy item and was wondering how long he has had these available. I was hoping to be one of the first ten lol.
Call tomorrow and find out if you are in the first ten! Then let everyone else know what the status is...

Its not listed as a new item so im not sure how long its been available. I did notice his v8 cai is no longer available. Im sure not many sales there but i was one of them. I think I'll wait and see. I like surprises.

Well, that's certainly kewL

I already made the purchase using the Pay Pal link so I wasn't paying attention and thought it was just the bracket itself

I like that it conceals the strut inside the tailgate latch area unlike others ive seen where its insude the bed corner. Atleast i hope thats how it is per the description.

My shipping label was created the 22nd. Hope to get it soon.

There's pretty much only one way to set this up which is just like they do on the full size trucks.

Now, all I need to do is find a can of spray paint that is summit white so I can paint the cylinder the same color as my truck

Is Olympic White the same as Summit White?

I found Dupli-Color spray paint in a can, but they seem to only offer Olympic White

Think my order has been lost by the USPS. Tracking showed it was to be here on Monday and Fridays mail has come and still not here. Was hoping to be able to post an installed pic by now. Sorry all. Will update soon, I hope.

There is a problem here though.

The cable doesn't fit with the strut when closed. Removing cable isnt easy either. The latch side bolt for cable has a retaining ring that doesn't let the bolt come out to remove the cable. Not sure if this was mentioned.

So easy solution once you get retaining ring off cable bolt on latch. Just do a switch a roo with the cable and bolts. Make sure to install what used to be the bed side cable mount cable to the bolt before installing bolt into latch on tailgate. Also don't tighten the what used to be tailgate bolt to the bedside too tight or cable wont swivel.
