    Tailgate Hinges TJ Body Style

    Are the tailgate hinges (more specifically the bolt holes on body and gate) the same?

    My 03 hinges are waaay to stiff even after oiling, etc. In 04 or 05 they went to a different style of hinge (the ones with black plastic covers). Will they fit all TJ years?


    Thanks

    Nothing shiny goes on my rig. There was / is a set of 04 TJ hinges (new style) somewhere on here for sale and since they ARE the newer style hinge, I'm wondering if they are drilled the same.

    ....for 1/2 the $$$ of these new ones (even if they come in black)

    The Prestige don't come in black just anodized Aluminum. For me they are my only choice as I want something very strong that will hold a larger tire. I agree that black would be cool but at least they are not chrome plated.

    Again sorry, just thought I'd save you the effort. Opened the box they look exactly the same except the covers. If you come across another pair grab'em
    good luck
