Am I missing a piece on my rear tailgate??

Okay, I've noticed something kind of odd about my YJ. On the inside of YJ tailgates, on the hinge side, I have noticed that they all have thise kind of bracket that attaches the tailgate to the inside of the Jeep. Anyone know what I'm talking about or are you all lost?<smile> I've noticed mine doesn't have one. Should I worry? Thanks a lot!

Re: Am I missing a piece on my rear tailgate??

My 88 had one - it was inside a little plastic cover, and it looked like something that would hold the tailgate open. That was probably the first thing I ever took off of my Jeep. Mine interfered with the Tuffy lockbox that I put back there, so out it came!

I would imagine you don't really need it, unless you want one.

Good luck

Yeah they used a plastic piece before that went over the hinges of the tailgate from the inside. That's how the wires for the thir brake light was hidden
