TJ2 Mine was bound up for several years. I tried all kinds of lubes. . . no help. Then one day the shards of a plastic washer fell out onto the ground. No more binding.

Apparently, the design idea was to prevent hinge wear and rattling.

Jollyczar From what I understand this is a from the factory issue. The pin is a different kind of metal than the hinge and they ALWAYS end up binding up due to a galvanic reaction. The only true way to fix it is to replace it.

Nope biggest tire on the stock carrier was a factory 30" GSA. After looking it over some more. I poured some CLR liquid cleaner on it, it seems to have helped a bit, but there is a ton of crude built up around the bottom hinge area. the top hinge unit moves freely, so I am living on with for now.

tail gate hinge issue

Okay so I am putting my after market tire carrier on last night.. which went fine. but I notice the lower stock tail gate hinge is really binding up when I open or close it. I went to remove it off the jeep and of course the torq's rounded out.. ugh.. anyway...anyone have any advise on what may be causing this? It appears there is a pin that might be able to be banged out but its most likey fused in there with my luck. thanks!
