Default 2013 Tailgate

Have a 13 Platinum, last Sunday when I went to close the tailgate it seemed heavy. Is there any type of spring in the hinges that assists in opening/closing. Opened and closed it several times after and its definitely heavier.

Thanks

Yes, there is a torsion bar inside the tailgate. They rot out and snap, just replaced mine yesterday. There is a post on here somewhere about it.

Thanks! Looks like that extended warranty will get some use.
