Hello, I hope you are having a great day. My name is***** would be happy to answer this for you.

The tailgate on these is very easy to replace, you will just want to have another person help remove it and install the new one. You will only have to pop off the lift struts and then take out the bolts at the top hinges and it will come off, make sure to set it on as straight as possible or it will take a while to get the proper fitment. Let me know if you have any questions during the process :)

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
