Default Tailgate question

I have no idea what it is called so your going go off description. I like how some truck have that black (I believe plastic) strip on their tailgate that hangs over a little bit. I'm taking its factory, but what is it called and anyone know of sites who sell them cheaper but good quality then the stealership?

I heard of them being called a protector or spoiler. I haven't looked into buying one as I have one but it is cracked so maybe I should be looking to get a new one
Did a quick check saw one on ebay for $98 not sure what the dealers are charging.

They're call tailgate spoilers. You should be able to get them from a junk yard for cheap if it's from a damaged tailgate. eBay or a body shop should be cheaper than the dealership.

You can also get it as a kit from Mopar (if they haven't discontinued it). If they have, all the pieces you need are in the parts manual. I got the spoiler itself for cheap and just ordered the fasteners.

They are hard to find used online and best I can tell there are no aftermarket pieces that have the same "spolier" look as the OEM piece. I just bought one from a forumz member and am going to do an install how-to. Or try to anyway, lol. It might turn into a how-to %(^# up your tailgate.
