A typical truck latch can be found on RockAuto.com by selecting the make, year, model and trim of the vehicle and then selecting the body subcategory. This search pulls up a list of body parts, including latches for doors, hoods and tailgates.
Latches, which are important parts on the body of any vehicle, can wear out over time, leading to doors, hoods and tailgates that do not open or close properly. If simple repairs cannot fix the latch, replacements can be found at junkyards, auto part stores or online stores. Replacement of the latch is typically a simple task for those who are mechanically inclined and can be performed by qualified auto body technicians or repair technicians.
