Plymouth Trailduster interchange question

5882 5
A friend has a 1979 Plymouth Trailduster and needs the lower tailgate replaced, usual rust issues. Some say you can only use the Trailduster, others say you can use the gate from a 70's Dodge pickup. Anybody have a definite answer? Thanks!

Do an images search of the two models to start with and then you can determine if they at least look alike, might just be a chrome accent difference.

Motor lists the 1978-1980 Ram pickup/Dodge Ramcharger/Plymouth Trailduster tailgate shell as the same part # 4113262.
Possibly earlier tailgates will work, but I have a gap in years. Google it.

I have a 1975 Dodge D100.

I bought a tailgate from a 1977 Plymouth Trail Duster from a wrecking yard and replaced the shabby looking Dodge one.

It fits and works perfectly.

You just need to remove the tire mount off the Plymouth tailgate.
