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.

- 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.

- 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 was so easy to install, the fitment is spot on. I can't say enough about the quality right down to the hardware. Shipping was fast and it was packed very well. It took me about 3 hours because I triple checked all my marks and for square before drilling the holes. I only had to do everything once. It operates better than side swing and my tailgate has never shut this easy. I did grind a little more than 1/8 off the bottom latch, I grinded it rounded and smooth. Do not have to slam it shut, just give it a swing upward and it shuts squared and tight with ease. The hardest part was having to drill out my old torque bolts on the old tail gate brackets. If you snap a bolt off, just use a lefthand drill bit to drill it out and the new bolts will screw right in tight and snug.
Quick shipping came as described nice looking product
