  1. Trifive Nomads, Sedan Deliveries & Station Wagons
    The latches open while driving. Sometimes it takes a few times when closing the tailgate for both latches to lock. I also tried locking the T-Handle with the key. Either way, both latches release and the tailgate bounces against the jam while driving. Bad latches? Bad striker plates...
  2. Trifive Nomads, Sedan Deliveries & Station Wagons
    Hi all, I have a couple questions on my tailgate, as I'm having a really hard time finding out what to order or what I'm missing. 1) Has anyone used a T handle that was NOT "made for a wagon" and didn't cost over $200? Is there something special about the one that is sold by Danchuk, etc. or...

    Hey folks I got the 210 wagon out today and went to open the tailgate, but the T handle won't budge. I don't have a key to the rear lock so I don't believe its locked. Is there any way to open a tailgate to get to the problem, short of a "smoke wrench" (as my buddy calls his gas torch?!) Any...

    Well I've been looking for certain parts for my 56. Spoke to a friend who builds tri-fives and he told me that he had a tailgate that he rebuilt for himself and he's not going to use it. Went to pick it up and it is almost perfect! I think I got a good deal at $800. We are going to media blast...
