    PM Homelessduck about the tailgate, I was going to get one with my bed, but forgot it. He is in Oregon.

    I sent him a PM. I was able to get another rim, a set of tail lights, one front simulator, and a drivers side bullnose style DRW fender up in Old Fort NC yesterday! I would like to find a passenger side one and sell or trade my bricknose DRW fenders.

    Ah, ok. This is from an '85, must have different trim packages.

    Yep,

    Duck, yours is an XLT/XLT Lariat Tailgate, the tan one in the picture doesn't have the "beauty panel".... if you removed the panel, it would look like the tan one underneath. The beauty panel throws people, because it makes the tailgate look flat, like a brick/obs gate.

    The body lines between a bull and brick/obs tailgate are different.

    One other question then, the bed is off a bricknose but I’m putting it on a bullnose. Will bullnose DRW fenders and tailgate work on it or do I need to be searching for a whole new bed?

    I’m guessing what he means by body lines is the wheel wells and tailgate style which is why I’m switching both to bullnose. From what I’ve been reading your tailgate is that style under the trim as long as it is the original factory one and not aftermarket. PM me what you are asking for it.
