Have any of you guys experienced a "loose" and rattling tailgate? I have an 05 SE 4X4 crew cab. Ever since new the tailgate rattles. I mean I can grab it with my hand and shake it back and forth about 1/2 inch, so you can imagine what it does over bumps. Dealer says its normal (of course). Any other truck I have tried this on to see if they did it have been super solid with no tailgate movement.

Anyone that has had this problem and found a solution please let me know.

Thanks,

-Mike

yes I have a tailget that had a lot of play on one side [about a half inch] in this case it was the pin that the latch grabs onto had worked itself loose, there may suposed to be a plastic sleeve over the pin I'm not sure, I just tightened the pin up myself, now there is about a quarter inch play, which I think is normal.
Any rattling noise is not nomal.

I wrapped a large, 1/2" wide zip-tie around the post on the driver side that the gate mates with, at the bottom part of the bed.
