Tailgate part number E8TZ 9840700 a VS. F4TZ 9840700 A?

I have a question about Ford OEM tailgates. I am wondering what the difference between part numbers E8TZ 9840700 A vs. F4TZ-9840700 A may be?

Not positive, but evne though they are a few years apart they are likely the same since they share the same part number. The E8 and F4 only designate 1988 and 1994.

They are the same.....

E8 was '88 and F4 '94. Thats the only difference

The identical base (center) PN only says the parts are used in the same general location on their respective vehicles; for instance, the t/g on a '76 LTD station wagon has nearly the same base PN because it hinges down & has retractable glass, analogous to our t/gs. The first 2 digits of the prefix say one was designed in '88 and the other in '94; the other 2 say both are for fullsize truck bodies. The suffixes (both "A") say that, for each particular prefix & base, this was the first major revision put into production. The base & suffix alone do not say that the parts are identical.

But in fact, they're interchangeable, like all '83-96 Bronco t/gs. I suspect that the '94 A has no holes for carpet, and if you were to find a '94 B, it would. Before '94, there was no carpet, hence the need for a new PN (design revision) in '94. I'd expect a '93 t/g to have the '88 PN, but I can't think of a reason for there to be an '88 revision. Maybe an internal brace changed slightly.

A quick question about tailgate carpet.... I am going to install some in a 93. As Steve noted, there are no holes in the 93 for the carpet. Is the carpet held in by screws, or by the plastic push pins?

Steve - I looked inside your supermotors pages and found this:



It mentions the pushpins, and gives 2 different part numbers (N807154-S for XLT and N805636-S for XL). Are there any differences in the push-pins?

Also, it looks like screws are used across the top of the carpet, as there is no flat circular areas like there is on the sides and bottom of the carpet. Are screws used also, or only push pins?

Color. XLs didn't get carpet, so they had black pushpins to fill the holes. Those with carpet had color-matched pins. It's all shown in that album.
