What is a CJ Tailgate worth?

I am cleaning out the garage and have a clean CJ Tailgate with the hinges and straps just collecting dust. I was going to put it in a TJ. I thought the TJ would look nice with a CJ tailgate and Jeep stamped on it.

Will a CJ gate fit a YJ? I was thinking about that the other day...LOVE the stamped Jeep logo.

I think it should not really sure since I don't have a YJ but I think it should fit. I can't remember where I have seen write ups on it.

CJ gate should fit YJ with very few issues.

A gate with the big "W" or "Willys" on it would be collectible, but I don't think a standard CJ gate is worth all that much. I might be wrong - they do rust out.

In reality, things are only worth what someone is willing to pay and how badly they really, really want it and just have to have it.

I saw a couple on ebay yesterday that were rusted and not is great shape compared to the one I have and they were asking $150. I think mine might have a spot or 2 of some surface rust but nothing rotting out and the inside is lined. Maybe I should just hang it on the wall like a picture. Not sure the wife will let that happen.

I don't want one, I have one. But I don't know where you live but I have been through plenty of junkyards from PA-NC and in CA and AZ and I don't see many CJ's there. Maybe where you live it is different. I was trying to find out of price because I am selling mine.

Maybe check eBay, advanced search, sold items.

06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
