Finally found my SW-R meter and checked my antenna. I get a 1.2 with the tailgate open and a 1.4 with it shut. Obviously need to ground the tailgate. Has anyone run a ground strap from the tailgate to the body? If so where did you connect it? Thanks in advance.

That's not bad at all. If the ground connection to the body was poor, you'd have way worse issues than 1.4. That said, it certainly can't hurt. It doesn't matter where as long as it's body metal. Just grind/sand the paint off the body and tailgate under where the ground strap makes contact. Then put some liquid electrical tape or other sealant over the connection points to seal water out.
