Please Help with tailgate!!
Hello everyone, and I apologize for just joining and starting up a new thread immediately, but I'm in urgent need of assistance.
The model in question is a base 2012, 2.5. I need to figure out if there are structural differences between the tailgates (back door) of a 06-08 vs the 09-12???
I need to replace the tailgate and it's way too expensive from the dealer, and I found a good deal on an '07 tailgate from a wrecker, but the dealership said that only 09-12 are interchangeable. Looking at pictures of the two only a few trim pieces and badges differ slightly. So I was wondering if the '07 tailgate would indeed fit on the '12?
I highly doubt that Toyota would change the dimensions of the tailgate mid-cycle, but I'm not sure. If anybody can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated.
