    Default Tailgate replacement

    I just bought a new replacement tailgate for my 2008 Silverado. The new gate has an insert on the driver side that appears to be plastic. Is this something to remove in order to install? How do I remove it?

    im not completely sure if you can but i couldn't take the one outta my new tailgate. i just grinded down the piece that it connects to on my truck.
