Jeep Wrangler "Flat Back" Aluminum Drop Down Tailgate Conversion Kit 

The only kit out there in the market that converts your factory swing out tailgate into a drop down tailgate. This robust drop down tailgate conversion kit is designed to easily hold over 400 lbs. This kit is compatible with your factory hard or soft top, so you can easily keep water and thugs out of the back of your Jeep.

The tailgate conversion kit uses your existing tailgate latch mechanism so your tailgate will remain lockable and rattle free.  The kit installs with minimal shop tools and no welding is required for installation

The SWAG drop down TJ-YJ tailgate is CNC laser cut from 3/16" 6061-T6 aluminum plate that provides superior corrosion protection and reduces the total overall weight.  Each drop down tailgate kit comes standard with stainless steel fasteners for sleek appearance.  We used the very best hinges in the industry.

This kit will work with any aftermarket 3/16" corner armor.  This product is shipped in bare raw aluminum and will need to be powder coated, painted and or left raw aluminum.  A solid aluminum bottom panel will be supplied with every drop down tailgate kit sold.

Your spare tire will need to be attached with an after market swing out tire carrier. This kit is compatible with either a bumper mounted tire carrier or a tub mounted tire carrier.  There are dozens of designs and manufactures to pick form depending upon your requirements and the amount you are looking to spend. 

A drop down tail gate has many ideal uses, here are a few that previous customers have sent to us.

  • The ultimate off road work bench trail repair station,its always with you
  • The perfect place to set the Coleman camp cooking stove.
  • When it rains I can lift up the hard top glass and sit on a dry tailgate.
  • With two kids In diapers, it is the only flat spot on a Jeep.
  • What good is a tailgating party with out a tailgate.
  • Take the rear seat out and I can easily sleep in the back.
  • It is a great place to sit and watch people after I've broken my Jeep.
  • A great place to set my tool bag, and have a trail side picnic.
  • Who needs a drop down tailgate, I love getting hit in the back when parked on a hill with my swing out factory tailgate.

You killed it folks, I love it. Always wanted to have a drop down gate instead of swing gate. I think you are the best. You deserve so much credit for this, if someone were to see this and try it, they will buy it. We are offering a install up here in Washington. We will be ordering more. Great job.

Rating Product is great, installation instructions could use updating
 
I love my new tailgate function! Drop down is so much better than the swing open factory design, and the aluminum plate looks great as well. I even relocated my tag to the middle of the tailgate so I could ditch the awful spring loaded contraption over my gas filler. My only complaints are with the included instructions, and a few of the small parts. I had to print off the instructions for this kit as well as the normal kit and combine the two to get an idea of how to properly install all the hardware. It was very unclear initially, because the set of instructions that came with it instructed me to use "included pop rivets" to install the bottom section, but the kit came with bolts. So I had to look at the other instructions to know I needed to track down a harbor freight threaded rivet gun to install threaded inserts and then bolt on the bottom plate. I also needed a few extra lock nuts for the door hardware, as the holes didn't line up with existing holes in the tailgate and I had to drill through the other side to allow a socket to fit through and tighten on the nuts. The latch was one of the more confusing parts, because the box it comes in has parts you don't need, and no instructions. The product instructions only tell you to cut a hole and install the latch--no specification on which of the several parts that come with the latch you're supposed to use. I also had to reference the second set of instructions for this, because the flatback instructions still reference the toggle latch the kits used to come with. It was a very long process with a few trips to the store to get everything installed, but once again, I am very thrilled with the product itself and the end result was worth the trouble. I only deducted 1 star because of the missing hardware and lack of updated instructions that made the installation experience less than ideal.

Rating I wish they had a matching latches on both sides of the tail gate.
 
I love the flat back tailgate but I wish it had matching latches on either side instead of incorporating the factory latch. It just looks kind of funny. Other than that, not a single complaint. Awesome product.
