Helping my son get a 1990 Bronco road worthy and discovered it needs both driver and passenger side tailgate latches. Anyone out the have a pair they’d like to sell? I’ve searched high and low for them but they don’t exist in the aftermarket world. The Ford part numbers are E8TZ-9843150-B for the right side and E8TZ-9843151-A for the left side. I’m in the Bay Area of California and there aren’t too many FB to be found at wrecking yards. If anyone has a pair please contact me so we can keep this project moving forward. Thanks

Yo Lamont,
WELCOME!
GREAT father and son project!
For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;
Hollander Quality Replacement Parts | Find Used Auto Parts | Online Locator
A yard that uses Hollander Interchange can search other yards and have it shipped including some Canadian yards.
"...For over eighty years, Hollander has been making the best tool for fast, interchangeable part matches. The new Edition Hollander Interchange contains more interchangeable options than ever before.
The Hollander Interchange provides auto recyclers and auto collectors, rebuilders, and others with the easiest and most comprehensive solution for identifying interchangeable auto parts..." See their yard Directory @ Seller Directory | Used Auto Parts | Hollanderparts
Can select a certain part.
If a specific part isn't listed, search again for the next higher assembly, such as in this instance, the tailgate.
try 1990 Ford Bronco Rear Body Trunk Hatch Tailgate 01594A Heated
For example;
182186

or
Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

No, the truck latches don't fit the Bronco. They were available a few years ago but now looks as if nobody has them. Junkyard or Ebay is likely your only option at this point

Yo Lamont,
FYI;
Latch Differences; "...78-82 tailgate latches are significantly different from 83-96. Because they mount differently in the tailgate, neither the latches nor the t/g skins will interchange across those years. Their strikes that mount to the body can be interchanged with some effort..." Source: by Ford via Steve83 (BANNED)

Note. In 78-82, both latches have to be closed since the interlock switch is mounted in the center mechanism;
NOTE; The safety switch was moved from the center (tailgate handle) to the left latch by 1983 by Seabronc (Fred W).

E8TZ9843150B is discontinued by Ford
Same for E8TZ9843151A.
