Hi!
Bought a straightend and cromed lift gate frame a few years ago. Today when I should install it I got problem.
The 2 holes in the center of inner frame have c/c 6" and outer frame is c/c 6-3/4"

My questions are
Was it 2 versions of 56 or is it from another year ?
Will it be more problems if I try to use this one ?
What will be the best way to repair. Drill new holes in the inner frame or drill and tap new holes in the outer frame ?

Thanks
Todd

Hi!

It was no other problems. So I will drill new holes in the innerpiece.

Thanks

Could the inner piece be from a wagon and not a nomad??? If drilling 2 new holes makes it work, go for it.

As one Nomad owner to another - you should know that Nomad and wagon lift and drop gates are radically different.
