Lift Gate Hinges

Are cracked hinges on the rear lift gate a common problem? I've noticed some other postings concerning the problem but haven't found out too much. I recently purchased my first Jeep and have a cracked hinge. Found one vendor for new hinge set but thought I would shop around. Since I'm new to the "find parts" game does anyone have any leads on new and used hinges?

Yeah, the hardtop glass hinges break from time to time. Not sure what kind of pot metal they're made of, but it isn't great. I'd find a replacement set and swap them out. My current set is disintegrating, and it was replaced in 2003, so they do last a while, just not forever like the old true steel ones on the CJs.

I just had this happen and changed to Kentrol stainless black powder coated replacements. I did it myself but would have been much easier with a friend. Cascade4x4 stocks them.
