Any kits for a TJ to get that fold down tailgate that the CJ's had?

I've seen a couple on the web, but I think they've been custom jobs. I'll see if I can dig them up.

Never seen a kit. All the ones I've seen were custom jobs like Troy mentioned.

Basically, you need a CJ tailgate and hinges, some form of reinforcement for the tub below the gate, where the hinges will attach, and some form of latch.

The thing that keeps a lot of guys from doing this is the latch. You can no longer use the factory handle and latch. The guys that have done the conversion...at least the ones I've seen...used CJ latches which require you to open the rear gate from the inside by either removing the window or climbing inside the back of the Jeep.

Tailgate conversion
Been considering this off and on myself for a bit now as my tailgate has developed a little sag from carrying around a 35 on it....I know, I know Shocked .
