Im currently doing a big buildup on my TJ and part of it includes competition cutitng the rear, for this I bought Poison Spyder's Competition cut crusher corners. The only problem is the factory tailgate hinges will not work because there will no longer be sheet metal in that area. I could just get smaller hinges that would be installed on the bottom and use the factory tailgate, but i was wondering if I could just buy a CJ tailgate with the "JEEP" stamped on it and use that with the CJ hinges and install it that way. I think it would be nice to have the CJ tailgate, so i was wondering if one of you could give your measurements of your tailgate so i can make sure it will fit, or if you have seen this done before some links or pictures would be nice, thanks.

Just came to read this....

I have 1980 to 1985 CJ's up my butt.... really.... and don't mind taking a few measurements.

It might take a day or so.

Tailgate... OK.

Probably just a bunch of couch potatos too lazy to get off their duff. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The tailgate is 35 1/2" X 16 1/2". The opening is 34" wide.

SOrry guy.........and thanks Jim.
I read this last night and was going to get up, hit the garage and go measure. Then things went astray with the yardwork as soon as I hit the garage. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Needless to say..........I was out working untill almost 11 and forgot totally about it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
