tailgate hinge

the po of my jeep had put chrome hinges on it and I finnaly painted it all last night, well I removed the tailgate hunges and now I can't put them on, the screw is gripping nothing. Is there something supposed to be back there or an easy way to fix this.

Yes there are backing plates that both act as washers and as the nut for the bolt. Should be two of them, one for the top hinge and one for the bottom. They should have fallen down when you removed the hinges. they are about 4 inches long.
