Re: TJ Tailgate rattling too much. Solutions?
You might try checking out the AllData website on technical service bulletins. I was looking under the 98' the other day and remember seeing something about a noisy tailgate. It won't give you the details, however I have gone into the dealer before and got them to print off the TSB for me, and hey, since it is a TSB, you should be able to get them to fix it for free, although you might want to take off the over-sized spare before bringing it in.
