TACTIK HD Tailgate Hinge Reinforcement Kit for 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ

The Tactik HD Tailgate Hinge Reinforcement System evenly distributes the excessive weight of an over-sized spare tire in the Jeep Wrangler TJ and Unlimited. Providing a stout mounting point to both hinges and installs using the factory positions. The Hinge Reinforcement features 5/8" case hardened steel hinge pins with bronze bushings that connect the solid cast aluminum brace to the 3/8” forged steel hinge brackets. Eliminates tailgate stress and rattles while providing superior strength over the factory strap hinges. While also offering the option to also replace the factory spare tire mount with a heavy duty version that offers additional clearance for that larger spare tire. No drilling required.

Optional Spare Tire Mount: This heavy duty tire carrier upgrade allows for additional clearance to carry up to a 35 inch tall tire. Constructed from a stout 1/4" steel plate and pushes the spare tire out an additional 2 inches. Be sure to replace and upgrade from the factory spare tire mount with this Heavy Duty option allowing for proper bumper clearance.
