I just debadged my truck last night. Can I remove my tailgate cap, or are there bolt holes underneath? The bolt holes are used for the cap that sticks out kind of like a little spoiler. Are those holes in all tailgates, even if they came from the factory with the smooth type cap?

Yes, those holes are in all of the tailgates regardless of which cap you have.

I guess I'll have to paint the cap then. I'm not repainting the whole tailgate.

For those that have shaved these little inserts, did you remove the threaded insert first, then build up some weld to close the hole? If so, whats the easy way to remove the threaded insert?

Thanks
