Has anyone put a power tailgate on their Lade?
I have an 05, and would love to turn it into a power tailgate.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

I was wondering about this too... it would be nice if someone can get the mechanical side of it figured out because I can figure out the electronics side of it, if help is needed...

There was another thread on this...but it was older, so I'll post what I think.


After seeing the motor from my dad's Denali, I came up with this idea. What about taking the liftgate motors from a NBS Escalade, set them in the same spots as where they are located in the NBS's. Then wire it to have power, and wire a switch to it located on the dashboard.

It sounds possible to me.


EDIT: whoops, though this was on the first page. Sorry! :banghead:
