Super Duty tailgate

Can someone tell me what years these tailgates came on? On ebay some auctions have them listed on the same years and some are for different years. Surely Ford didn't use different tailgates on the same year? Thanks

I think the green one is an 08-12 gate. The gray one, with the extra body line is a 13-16 gate. I think they are completely interchangeable, the only difference being that upper body line.

This could be like the black and blue or white and gold dress thing... it looks gray to me.

Yes they are interchangeable, I had the newer one installed when I had some body work done last year on my '11. I personally like the newer one myself.

Thats odd.... for me there’s a photo of the gray tailgate just above the photo of the green truck in the shop/garage.

It's weird how the pictures are displaying. I have two pictures of the truck with the green one, with the other gate between them...FM

As long as you are changing tailgates look for one with a step.

In post 1, I see a little blue image icon, then the post text, then the "gray" tailgate (not getting into that discussion), and then the green one.

Something is going on with post images on the forum, I have been seeing anomalies in other threads, with some members able to see certain images, and other members not.

Have not checked in the forum issues section to see if there are any reports or info. When I have time, I'll look, but I'm also doing taxes today.

And I'm not going to be any help on tailgate fitment, just popped in because I was curious.
