Additional Info

Remove stock tailgate by releasing gate support cables or flat bar
Rotate gate 45 degrees from closed position and lift the gate on the end with the slotted receiver. The gate will lift off.
To install the gate reverse 2nd step and your gate ramp is installed.
Close the gate. Adjust striker pin to fit snugly against the latch pin
It will be necessary to unbolt the cables from stock tailgate and fasten to TailGate Ramp if the ramp doesnt lie against bumper, when let down and used like a regular tailgate. Your new tailgate is drilled and tapped to receive a 3/8 X 1 bolt to fasten the support cables or bars.

To Install Spring on Your TailGate Ramp

You will need the following:
Drill
5/16 inch Bit
1/4 inch Bit
7/16 inch End Wrench
1/2 inch End Wrench

With the ramp in the raised position and latched extend the spring to the side of the body.
Place the bracket next to the inside lip of the body, stretch the spring about 1 inch
Mark the two holes in the bracket.
Now drill the 2 holes in the body with a 5/16-inch drill bit.
Bolt the bracket to the side of the body with spring hooked to it.

You are now ready to unlatch tailgate and unfold and use for loading things into the back of your truck.

Care and Maintenance
In very cold weather it may be necessary to lubricate latches with light silicone lubricant to prevent icing problems.
It may be necessary to touch up paint on hinges and latches from time to time. Some paints dont adhere to Rhino Liner so stick with one of the following: Rustolieum hard hat paint or Krylon in a glossy black color.

Operating Your New Ramp
On the drivers side of tailgate there are 2 latches the lower one holds your ramp together. When gate is to be used as a ramp release the right side latch then go to left side. Release the lower latch. Grip handle firmly and release the upper latch. Slowly lower ramp and pull apart when ramp is hanging freely. Reach under section 2 and release inner latch (keep toes out of tailgate area) the inside 2 sections will release and drop. Sections 3 and 4 are held together with 2 rare earth magnets. Grip the two handles and pull apart. Your ramp is unfolded and ready to use.

Caution
Always load and unload slowly
Don't load ATV or motorcycles that are loaded with other gear or game
You may need or want help to close the ramp - don't try to close by yourself if it is too heavy for you. Do not over exert yourself in attempting to lift if it is too heavy. Get appropriate help if you need it.
Excessive mud and snow may cause slippage and cause loss of traction so you may need to clean off ramp in those conditions.
Don't overload the ramp
Keep toes out of area where panels are to unfold
Unfold slowly one panel at the time to prevent straining and the same for folding
Sharp objects such as snowmobile skags scuff or may permanently damage ramp
Anyone using ramp should be experienced with operation of equipment they are loading
It is slippery to walk on the expanded metal surface even with the Rhino Liner with slick soled shoes
Before moving truck make sure ramp is folded and latched
Don't play on the ramp
There is no replacement for good common sense
You are in charge of your own safety so do things in a responsible and safe manner
