I dig it. Always liked CJ6. I really like the CJ tailgate as well, I've wanted to do this also originally on my first TJ, but never did. Did you have to add reinforcement for the hinge? I have a dent on the bottom of my tub there which I need to repair anyway so there will be paint in the future. I'm thinking I may take this project on prior to paint
i put some 1/4 in plate behind it and welded it in. I just drilled and tapped the holes for the hinges and used the factory cj7 screws that came with the hinge kit. I used everything factory except the cables, i used 1 inch flat straps with turnbuckles.
