The OBS Solutions Aluminum Tailgate Panel fits 1987-1997 Ford F-Series Trucks ONLY. If your truck's tailgate did not come with a panel you will need to drill two holes on each end of your tailgate for this panel to work. We supply you with a template to do so. They DO NOT fit Bronco's Step-side beds or 1980-86 F-series trucks. This product is sold as a raw aluminum piece. If you choose to leave it as-is we highly recommend applying a clear-coat to preserve the finish. ***The FORD 7 x 2 3/4" Emblem is not supplied*** You can order these from Amazon. There are multiple color choices available. NOTE: Our Tailgate panel does not mount completely flush to the tailgate. Ford used special tooling and dies to mold the panel to the complicated contour and bends of the tailgate. The gaps in fitment are minimal and hidden by the taillights when the tailgate is shut. Please view and read our detailed instructions and photos prior to installation. With that being said, our panel mounts using factory fasteners and achieves secure adhesion to the tailgate through heavy duty 3M Body Panel Adhesive. Product may take an additional 7 working days to ship.Read Instructions Here

All Tailgate panels are shipped with nuts on the studs to ensure threads are not damaged. We are not liable for damages that occur when a customer does their own install.
