Question Tailgate removal

Hello all. hope everyone is great. I have a question regarding tailgates. What is the easiest way to remove one?I have never taking one off and i see the torx style screws. Do you have to take both sides off or just one and the other end slides out? Thanks for the help.

yeah it is easy just lift the tabs on the gate supports and at a 45 degree angle ( i think ) you slip off the passanger side and the pul to get the drivers side off and voila your done. i'd suggest a hand doing it the first time just so you get the hang of it and don't drop it .

Not according to myth busters..also, when you run with no tailgate, the beds sides will continually work themselves in and out and will weaken the seam where the floor of the bed meets the siderails. But lots of people seem to do it, so to each his own.

If you have a back up camera, the tailgate will still be connected...

Just an heads up, I forgot about the camera and almost dropped my new tailgate.
