I need to remove the tailgate next week when the new rollpan goes on, looking at it, it seems just removing the hex screw on each side will do it? Anyone know? thanks! :dunno:

The cables can clip off, then lower the tailgate, and the lower right section will slip out of place, and you can walk away with it. its really easy, I do it all the time when I load stuff.

yeah you shouldnt have to unscrew anything. like ryan said, just unclip the black cables, open it about half way, lift up on the right side and pull it out!

yup, one side has a slot to allow it to come out. Once you do this you will realize how easy it is and why so many get stolen.

Tailgate cable on the body side has clips on it.. Pull clip up side off bolt (watch the paint). Likewise on the other side (hold TAILGATE it will fall into bumper and cause cussing fits). Tilt tailgate upward half way. Pull up on passengers side.... Step Back one step pull off slowly from drivers side... (AGAIN watch the paint)........ Reverse directions for install.

Cool thanks everyone, going to have to be extra careful when it goes back with the new rollpan.

..I dont see any notch or place for the gate to come off my GMT900 with "EZ lift" gate??? are these gates not removable due to the internal spring on the drivers side??

Yes the Ez lift tailgates can be removed atleast on my 2009 it can. The east way to prevent your gate from being stolen is to put a hose clamp around where the gate connects and tighten it down. Most people will not have tools to remove the clamp. I have had several friends and relatives have theirs stolen in the past.

You can buy locks that go on the pivot point so you cannot lift the gate off...like the screw clamp but with a lock and more secure.

Dunnnno, it has to come off.... I have not paid attention to a GMT-900 in the hinge area on the tailgate..... Next one I load something in I will take a quick look....
