    Tailgate hinges.

    My tailgate hinges are starting to fail on my JKU. What products has anyone used? Pro’s and con’s how do you like what you did to fix the problem.

    If you're asking about TJ tailgate hinges I replaced mine with a set of Mortye hinges and they've been great.

    If you're talking JK hinges, there are so many options out there you can get lost for hours Googling it. Personally, I had so much play my tailgate would rattle on any rough road and a pothole had me checking my rear view mirror to make sure my spare tire was still there.

    I took my hinges off, ground off/out the pins, welded in small plates for reinforcement, then I drilled tight fitting holes and installed grade 8 bolts instead. It took me an hour and under $10 of materials. Works perfect now - it's been about 4 months.
