Where (on the internet) can I find a complete listing of specifications for my 1990 F150 XLT lariat, 302 standard cab? I would especially like to know the weight of the tailgate.

Asked by Aug 05, 2015 at 09:15 AM about the 1990 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat LB

Question type: General

I love my 1990 F150!  I'm in the process of fixing/replacing/updating/customizing her.  I've
been shopping on line for new parts...I would like to find a web link that would give as
much detailed info on my truck.  I want to make sure the parts I am ordering are truly
"OEM".  I think body part "weight" would tell all....if it is the same gauge steel....thanks to
anyone who can help!  Bill

Pretty sure the weight of the tailgate is not listed in the specifications. Perhaps you could use a bathroom scale or similar and weigh it?

Thank you for your help Bob. Got the tailgate today....2 dents at the top...ugh! And looking / comparing with my original tailgate, new one looks thinner...is there a way to measure the "gauge" of the steel?

Here is your problem. I've been through this before. Neither Ford or any other manufacturer I know of makes body parts for vehicles once the basic model configuration has been changed has changed for a few years. Dealers do not stock these items as cost and storage space is a major consideration. OEM does not always mean metal gauge will be exactly the same or the compensation of the alloy will be exactly the same. My previous endeavor in an area similar to yours always brought me to a junk yard with a magnet. The magnet was used to determine how much bondo repair, if any, had been previously performed.
