I think it looked pretty crappy before so I ordered this part for 1cent plus shipping on amazon.

What I'd really like to do is just get a whole new tailgate from a nicer truck with the badges on it.

I wouldn't mind a new tailgate myself. I've been thinking about doing a bit of fabrication, because I like the new style tailgate, but I'm sure it probably wouldn't be anywhere near a direct swap onto my 06. With that said, I'm kinda curious to see if it's even possible to get it looking right after cutting it down to fit:

How did you manage to score that part for $0.01? A dealer would probably charge you $35. Good steal, looks a lot better.
