CJ Tailgate Conversion Kit for your TJ or YJ

This kit is designed only for converting a CJ tailgate to work on your TJ/YJ tub, this kit will not work with your factory TJ/YJ tailgate.

Do you love the look of the old school CJ tailgates, if so look no further.  This is  the only kit out there in the market that replaces your factory TJ/YJ swing out tailgate design into a drop down tailgate when used with a CJ tailgate. This robust drop down tailgate conversion kit is designed to easily hold over 400lbs. This kit is compatible with your factory hard or soft top. Please note that the CJ tailgate kit is best suited for those running a soft top as the CJ tailgates lock from the inside of the Jeep and if you are running a hard top you will be required to open and close the tailgate from the inside of your Wrangler.

The kit installs with minimal shop tools and installation is a snap.  Drilling of four holes is required to mount the bottom of the hinge to the Jeep tub and custom fabrication is required to keep the tailgate closed as the factory CJ tailgate latch mechanism does not fit flush against the YJ or TJ bodies to keep the tailgate closed.

Engineered to last with quality hinges and cablesall metal brackets are shipped unpainted and are laser cut and formed on a press brake.  Note, the tailgate is not included with this kit.

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.

This kit is only for converting a CJ tailgate to work on your TJ/YJ tub.

I found the kit to be exactly what i needed to convert my 05 TJ tailgate to a CJ7 tailgate. I can use my drop down tailgate for so mush more and it has a vintage look as well.

very nice
Great kit, especially since the stainless kentrol hinges (powder coated) are about $50 by themselves. Just a kit that makes it easier. -SWAG: Sure would be nice to come up with something to deal with the upper CJ tabs. Not hard to make something, but add those and this kit would be a no brainer.

CJ Tailgate conversion for TJ/YJ
This Kit was awsome, I installed the Tailgate in about an Hour not counting paint. I wish the lower hinge spacer had been included but a couple flat washers worked fine. I really enjoy having the convenience of a drop down tailgate. If your TJ hinges are getting bad, consider this option or the complete kit to use with your original tailgate. well worth the price.
