Jeep Wrangler 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 LJ-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.

SWAG TJ-YJ DROP DOWN TAILGATE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

This a great product, works awesome. There are a few things you need to change on the instruction sheet.If you attach the top plate to the tail gate first using the factory hinge bolt hole, then the bottom piece to the top piece using the hinges. Once you attach the bottom piece with the hinges. You can drill a 5/32 hole and tap with a 10-24 tap in the bottom of the face of the tub. This will allow the bottom piece to offset down from the tub about a 1/8 of an inch or so. By doing so it keeps you from having to alter the factory latch. The tailgate will drop smoothly.I had noticed this was the biggest issue with the insulation of the kit. Everyone seem to have a problem with having to adjust the factory latch. By doing the the way I explained you wont have to adjust the latch.

Great Product
This is a well designed product, very sturdy. I am 300lb and it does not budge. The only issue I had was cutting out for the handle. There is some thick metal behind the sheet metal. The latch looks good but I wish I had the option of the original latch they show in the video. It would have save time, drilling and cutting. But the finished product does look good.

Great Fit, Great Function
Despite the glitchy instructions... I'm still giving this 5 stars because it is well engineered, fits perfectly, and the hardware is of high quality. Obviously it won't work unless you have an aftermarket swing gate for you tire that allows clearance for this drop conversion. This is a huge improvement over the OE gate in my opinion. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and all of the chirping and rattling associated with the old swing tail are GONE. Nice and peaceful back there. I used self-etching primer and rattle can bedliner to coat the bare hardware. I also added a padded BedRug liner to the inside of my tailgate for more comfort when sitting on it. It took me the better part of an afternoon to install (wonky instructions) but well worth it. I'm happier than a flea at a dog show! Do it.

Great Kit
I've had my drop down tailgate kit installed for about a month now and I am loving it. It is a massive improvement for my jeep. The install was simple and the tailgate is strong easily holding two adults. Great product at a great price.

Great product, tricky install
Love this kit! The install was a bit of a pain because i did it alone but overall the quality is there. The part that gave me the most trouble was cutting the hole for the second latch. when you mark where your rivets go, make sure to measure twice so the holes arent crooked like a few of mine ended up.

Was doing rust repair on rear of my TJ and had rear hinges off and all fresh paint, perfect timing to install kit. My install took a day including a little running around for tools and the nutsert kit you need. Came out great!! Thanks SWAG!!!
