Angry Just My Sh*ty bad luck. lock your tailgates!

So tonight the wife and I are at Walmat to get some pictures developed. When were done there we leave to go meet some friends. I took off fast from a Red light and I noticed something rolling along the ground, I thought I lost my hub cap. I pull over to check the hub cap and that is when my Wife notices the tailgate was missing. We head back to Walmart to check out the crime seen. When I parked the truck I backed into the stall, where there were trees. I even backed up so far that the back up sensor was a solid tone.
Well just about 2 months to the day that my truck was stolen now my tailgate was stolen. How could one Ford brother do that to another? I am just full of colorful works right now. My truck is a Centennial edition would those badges still be available?
I live in Edmonton Albert Canada, and I was parked at the Walmart @ south Edmonton common. The tailgate had a small dent in the middle left top.

So everyone be ware lock the tailgate! I had mine lock earlier in the week but forgot to lock it after I was done.

Marry F^&king Christmas, you theiving *******s.

Hopefully it wasn't a Ford owner, maybe just an *****hole who knows he can sell it somewhere. Check your local swap meets and watch ebay. Good luck.

dang..sorry to hear about your bad luck. did you make a police report and will your insurance cover stolen parts?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

well I'm sure that the insurance company will repace the tailgate but I don't think they will be happy about two claims in two months. I will have to find out next week I guess. I went the the cop shop last night when I found out.

thats a big thing here in michigan, my last truck I had the gate stolen on it, I religously lock it now, but it still sucks... I might have an extra sitting at the shop, let me take a look see and I will get back to ya.

coincidently, I have a buddy in Edmonton that is selling a tailgate. Cheap. $45.

The catch is that it is damaged slightly. It has a slight bow to it. It's burgandy colored and is from an F-250. It's also been Rhino-lined in black.

I can re-key it to fit your key for free. Might not be mint but will get you out of a bind if you need to haul something and you don't want it rolling out the back.

He bought a good used one to replace this one on his 99 superduty.

give him a shout if you like.

His name is Don at 686-2188

Wreckers are usually asking about $200-$300 for one in various condition. I bought one for $200 and it needed a little bit of work.
