Wanna see what you all have used for a tail gate latch.
Was looking at a PAIR of the Mcmaster Carr locking latches, but theyre pretty spendy for what they are. 30 bucks a piece.:eek:

Thanks,

Keith

Hey chicago,

I've read the following thread many times:

https://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series-tech/338768-need-tailgate-latch-pics.html

Might help you out some.
Thaks for the link. I like the idea of using the factory latches, but as I'm to understand they are hard to come by. That was actually my original plan till I discovered that L hand latch is all but non existent any more.

Hence the consideration of aftermarket type latches. My rig is nowhere near stock so I'm looking for something good and functional.

You can turn an OEM left into a right and vice versa.

I think you can get Ehsan latches from Southboston, also.
