YJ tailgate dimensions

Could someone tell me the dimensions of a YJ tailgate. I'm thinking about trying to put one on my 80 CJ-5. My JEEP didn't come with a tailgate, but I wish it had. Does anyone out there have experience doing this?

Re: YJ tailgate dimensions


Thanks for the dimensions. I'll have to measure, but I'm hoping that I can make it work. I took my back seat out on Saturday for the first time, and realized how handy that space back there would be, if only I had a tailgate. I like the way the YJ tailgates fit and latch better than the tailgates that came on the CJ's.
