is this part on the tj tailgate a sort of bumpstop? im contemplating taking it off to make room for a 50cal ammo can. I don't want to just stick it in the middle of the tailgate, as I also want to mount a shovel and axe to it in the future. but if I put the ammo can above this (it should barley fit), I think it will get in the way of my soft top when its down. will the tailgate not close properly if I take it off?
