Question What is this?

I was wondering why my jeep had 4 screw holes in the back corner, today I came across a pic of this blue jeep and it looks like it has the same thing that would go on those 4 holes in the back of my jeep. What is that for? and do you think that its the same thing mine had?

it is to stop your tailgate from opening too far. it will hit the spare tire and act as a door stop.

Doesn't look like it would work so good on the blue one!

Those 4 holes look like a cb antenna mount was removed. Mine is mounted a little higher in that same area.

If you find the old Coke style openers that were counter mounted with (2) screws, they will go right on
