Ya, it's a chunk of change, but between that and a stocker, I'll go with Poison Spyder - don't much care for the swing out.JP Magazine installed that this month in a weight reduction writeup.
I am inquiring about the conversion because my Wrangler tailgate is rotted and I have to replace it before paint; (Monstaliner). Anyway, Wrangler part-outs are hard to come by in my area, but CJ part outs are popular. So.... since I have CJ tailgates cheaply available, I am kind of being forced in the conversion direction. However, you can bet your ass that I am never going to spend $400 to do it. I would get a replacement swingout tailgate for $300 before I spend the $400, but I will never spend the $300 either.
At this point I am curious how hard the conversion would be, what would be required for work, is it possible, has anybody done it, what parts I need to get with the gate, etc...

My tailgate was tweaked hard by the previous owner backing into to something. By the time I get a gate, weather seal and hinges I'm about the same price.
If we had any Jeep parts around here I'd be looking at it your way, but unless it's an XJ there's nothing.
