Worked on the tailgate a little. So what I'm planning is im going to bed line it like the bumper and quarter panels.

For the "JEEP" letters on the back and the strip on the top I sanded it down to bare steel and clear coated it, I'll let it dry for a day and then tape it off and bed line the rest.

I'm going to use CJ hinges and a garage door lock for the lock.

Thanks man .. I'm really stoked to put this on .. I have wanted to do this for years!! And I kinda want to get the waggy front clip ... I have been looking for one with no luck .. but with the old waggy 4 lights and the MJ tailgate, and doorless... this xj will be looking like a jeep.

I still need to order a new latch, just for looks

I think for my next order I'm going to get the genright pulley, and the genright led licence plate fame

I really can't pick a place I want to put the licence plate, I guess maybe I'll put my plate on the tail gate to the right of the jeep letters maybe .. IDK

Well I'm glad I waited to put the bumper on before the tailgate, Its going to take some trimming to get it on but I shal make this thing work .errr .. this is turning into a project. But I did get it paited. I'm going to repait it because I don't really like the silver strip on the top, so when I re-do it, it will just say "jeep" ...

This is the worst pic, but you can see how it does not fit with the bumper, SO .. Im going to trim about an inch off the bottom and cut the sides at a small angle to fit the shape of the bumper, and I need a new licenec plate holder. but heres where im at

heres a pic of what it keeps doing, jumping over a tooth over the pulley ..errrrr such a pain in the @$$
Save some money, get a slight overdrive on the pump, and go with the PSC version of the genright..... on $55!!!!
