Coyote_94YJ I'm going to have to figure out a clean latching system. The stock one won't work cuz there is that big hump for the latch and I don't much care for the one on the outside that's in the video.

Its a great idea, finding a clean flat spot to work or make lunch on the trail is hard to find.

It looks as though you could cut the spiderweb portion off. It appears to be just decorative.

redneckbrat I may have to ad this to my wish list. got other things to happen first.

Coyote_94YJ Ahh.. I didn't watch the video. Bandwidth issues at the moment.

distortedtj if you watch the video it seems they use the stock latch and the other latch they supply to hold each corner of the gate.

Coyote_94YJ I might have to get one of those. Although I don't like the spiderweb gusset thingy.

EDIT: On second thought I could make my own and probably do away with that latch they added and use the stock latch.

jgano23 there's benefits to both the drop and swing away tailgate. the drop is good if you have to sometimes carry longer cargo (like wood form the lumber yard), plus it's a nice seat when at a tailgate party. the swing away is nice because it moves out of the way so you can have easier access. i think i like my swing away better personally, but i'm not sure why.

distortedtj It's listed on Swagoffroad.com for $169.99 plus S&H.

There are also more pic's of that jeep if you follow the link in 4point's first post.

ExDementia That's pretty cool, I wonder if its expensive and how hard it is to put in.

I want to see more of that jeep.
