Went in to to dealer to complain about one cable having 1 1/2 in. slack. Was told it was normal by the tech, WTF I said. The service advisor went out and looked at his cables on his truck, the cables were much better than mine. I was given a copy of this bulletion.

98-05 Chevrolet/GMC All Full Size and Mid Size Trucks Tailgate Cable Slack

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom described in the PI

Condition/Concern
Some customers may comment that with the tailgate down, one of the tailgate cables may have slackin it.

Recommendation/Instructions:
No repair attempts should bemade as this is normal, due to build variation . In most cases when weight is put on the tailgate, the slack comes out.


Okay my fat ass got on the very end of the tailgate & had the wife check if the slack was still there, guess what? Still there. What a bunch of BS .

Have you tried a different dealer??? FYI I checked mine. One has a little slack in it with nothing on the tailgate. When I stand on it, it goes tight. Sounds like there is something wrong with yours. I would show them with you sitting on the tailgate at the next dealership. And they wonder why they have tailgate straps breaking..
