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.

|1BLKJP||Before you put on your aftermarket spare tire carrier where you running your 33's/35's (sorry can't tell size from your avatar) on the stock tire carrier? I run my 35 inch spare on there and I have started to notice a slight bow to the tailgate because of the added weight after about a year and a half.|

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!
