HI IM AM TYLER. SO THIS IS AN EASY FIX IF YOU HAVE A FEW BASIC HAND TOOLS AND FRIND TO HELP YOU TAKE THE TAIL GATE OFF. YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THE SAFTY CABLES OFF AND ROTATE AND LIFT UP ON THE GATE AT THE SAME TIME TO REMOVE IT ONCE IT IS OFF TAKE THE BOLTS OUT OF THE HINGE AND REPLACE IT. IF THE HINGE IS BROKEN ON THE GATE YOU MAY NEED TO HAVE IT WELDED AND PAINTED. ANY OTHER ISSUE PLEASE LET ME KNOW
