06 tail gate wont open??
i was picking up some walking stones for my yard the tail gate opened fine when i was loading my truck, but when i went to unload the handle moved, but the tailgate didn't pop open. i haven't got a chance to look at it, does anyone have any clues what would cause this??

yeah it was a clip, i went searching through my dads garage and found some metal ones that looked like it, and they work so hopefully they wont brake, i replaced both of them with the metal clips

White Lithium Grease, cheap for a little tube of it. I used it once on my old f-150(i know im sorry) and i never had any problems with the tailgate not locking ever again, or unlocking.
