Tailgate Hinges!!!

So my upper tailgate hinge pin, where it pivots, is broken. Ive searched online and noticed that to replace the hinges cost over a hundred bucks. Just wondering if anyone had a suggestion for rebuilding or a site that sold rebuild kits for this problem. Thanks

Look in the bone yards. I bought the aftermarket ones and they are much beefier than stock. The crappy powder coat chipped off, but nothing a rattlecan couldn't fix. I think they were $80 when I got them years ago.
