    EXT Safety Recall - Tailgate Cable

    Has anyone else received this Safety Recall? I know alot of the Avalanche people have been replacing their tailgate cables with folding aluminum bars due to the snapping of the stock cables. The recall stated that they are now aware of the problem and shall come up with replacement stainless steel cables that should resist the corrosion that caused the snaped cables, but at the curent time do not have the replacement cables available. It was just a warning to not put any weight on the tailgate and if anything has to be put in the bed, to take off the tailgate before doing so. Any EXT owners have their cables snap on them?

    wow I have been loading mine for years now with heavy shit and never heard about this. Now all those times I loaded up a buggy I feel blessed that it never broke because that would have sucked big time. Mine have never broke and I'm heading to the dealer as soon as they get thos new cables in. They also sell a lot of replacement cables on ebay if anyone is interested.

    I received the recall letter about a month ago on my '02 EXT and was advised they would follow up with further info later this summer. Haven't received the follow up yet.
