Check back soon - we hope to have other current models from Dodge and Toyota available in the near term. These models will require either receiver hitch and bumper relocation brackets or a rear bumper with a profile that will allow the tailgate to be lowered adequately.
In some cases you may be able to. For example, you may be able to use the FD1 link on earlier F-150's or the GM1 link on earlier 1500's that have cable ends that are the same as current models by lowering your bumper slightly. You should only use the GM Links on GM pickups and FD Links on Ford, Dodge and Mazda pickups. If you are a skilled fabricator you may be able to lower your receiver hitch and bumper on your Dodge pickup and use the FD links.
If one of your cables is shorter than the other, it will carry a disproportional amount of the weight when a load is applied to the tailgate.
The Links have been pull-tested to ensure that they are stronger than the tailgate cables.
Toyota, Nissan and Dodge all have bumper/tailgate geometry that restrict how far the tailgate can be lowered without the tailgate contacting the bumper. For these brands, either the bumper needs to be relocated to a lower position or the profile of the bumper needs to be changed in order to allow the tailgate to be lowered a significant amount. We are currently looking for potential partners that can provide us either a redesigned bumper or bumper relocation brackets that will accommodate lowering the tailgate at least 3 inches. As soon as we can find a solution the bumper interference issue, we will offer Tailgate Lowering Links for these other brands.
We use USPS for shipping. Charges in the continental US are a flat rate of $4.95 for Tailgate Cable Extension Links (GM1, GM2, GM3, FD1) and $7.95 for Tailgate Bumper Relocation Link Kits (FD2k, FD3k) due to weight. Additional charges will apply for other methods of shipping and for outside the continental US. We will strive to ship within the next business day of receiving your order.
