YJ-TJ 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 500 lbs. This kit is compatible with your factory hard or soft top, so you can easily keep water out and or 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

Engineered to last with quality components, the redesigned SWAG drop down tailgate kit is now able to hold over 500 lbs! The top and bottom panels are

The SWAG drop down TJ-YJ tailgate is
CNC laser cut from 3/16" 6061-T6 aluminum plate that provides superior corrosion protection and reduce the total overall weight, with 5/16" stainless steel flush mount fasteners.  These features provide a sleek appearance and is 100% complete, no additional sourcing or fabrication is required for installation. The new hinges offer smooth look with no exposed fasteners and don't rely on the boxed panel below the tailgate for mounting. This reduces the number of holes that need to be drilled into your Jeep tub.

With the bottom panel below the tailgate free of hinge mounting holes, it allows at no additional cost to you, the optional cut out that allows for the use of the Rigid back up fog and or spot SR-MF series of lights, lights not included.

This kit will work with any aftermarket 3/16" corner armor.  Please note that in order to fit the latch in the upper right hand side of the tailgate it will require cutting of your tailgate which can easily be done with a cut off wheel.  

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.

Just completed the installation of the Drop Down tailgate conversion kit on my 2006 TJ. This is a high quality product with all the necessary instructions and fitting supplied. The hardest part of the install was priming and painting the components prior to the installation. I'm very pleased with the end result and will purchase from SWAG Off Road again. Thanks, Todd.

This is my second kit from Swag, the first was on a yj the second on a tj.They both were super easy to install, very durable, and adds a cool look. Troy is the man for designing this and I won't own another jeep without one. Great job!
