Ditch the stock plastic and opt for something tougher. The Mobtown Tailgate Reinforcement Plate will add rigidity to your tailgate and reduce the chance of it breaking. The textured powder coat finish matches beautifully with the rest of the bed and will take a beating. Optional with the Tailgate Plate are steel Rivet Nuts to replace the stock plastic nuts and new corrosion resistant bolts. The Mobtown Tailgate Reinforcement Plate will give you the confidence in your tailgate to focus on using your truck, not breaking your tailgate.

For added protection, add ribs. Our reinforced tailgate skin is stamped with six ribs for extra stiffness standard.

    Definitely worth installing. The factory tailgate is plastic and will eventually fail. Order the upgrade kit-buy another hardened bolt and nut–rounds off after 8-9 rivet nuts are installed. Fits exact, only tough part are tightening the rivet nuts. Mobtown Fan Boy.

    Well finished, good looking (and stiff) replacement for the wimpy OEM tail-gate liner.
    Definitely recommend it – and the hardware upgrade…..

    This is a great product. Super strong and well built. The holes have generous clearance for the hardware upgrade kit. I opted to get the ribbed one to replace the weak plastic OEM part. Well worth the $$$. Thanks for making such a high quality upgrade part. Make sure you use the hardware upgrade kit. The factory plastic inserts will not support the weight of the steel reinforcement plate for very long.
