Tailgate, release rods (fits STYLESIDE tailgates) 1964-72 (C4TZ-99431A78-PR)
Tailgate, release rods for the STYLESIDE tailgates go from the center tailgate handle, to the tailgate latch on each side of the tailgate. So when you pull the tailgate handle, it literally pulls on each latch to release the tailgate so it can be lowered. These are only seen when they are being installed or removed from the tailgate. You put all new parts on your truck and if you don't replace the 40-50 year old rods inside the tailgate, they could be partially rusted into, and finally fail to open the gate just a few months after the truck is finished. It's a fine time to scratch that paint job while you're doing it now. These are made to fit 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, and 1972 Ford F-100 thru F-250.
