JeeperDon- really like your CJ tailgate on your YJ looks phenomenal!
Poison Spyder just released that their TJ tailgate will fit on the yj if you run a soft top!
for those with a hard top you need to cut about a 1/3 of an inch off of the top section for it to clear
they are going to release the fixed one for the hard top soonish i believe
Even though i dont have a hard top i will be waiting for the new one to come out in case i get a hard top in the future.
I will post pics of my install when the new one comes out and i do the install

As for compatibility i dont see any reason why it wont align and fit with my metalcloak fenders. The plates that go where the old hinges used to be i will have to fab up myself but i dont see that being too much of an issue. Again i will post more when i do the install myself.
With the trailgate i also plan on buying this bumper from them to replace my bumper I have now

The PS tailgate looks pretty clean, I looked at it myself. Only thing I heard is rattled a bit. I went with the swag offroad version to keep my stock TG and lock, it turned out pretty decent but I do like the clean look of the PS one..

Okay Great News!
So i ordered the PS Trail Gate a few weeks ago when they were having their free shipping sale!
I also happened to order one of their rear bumpers! (link)
http://shop.poisonspyder.com/Jeep-TJ.../14-17-020.htm

Today I went to Streetwerkz, a powdercoating company in Columbus to give them all of my goodies (including front bumper already on jeep) to get blasted to match my MetalCloak fenders
(Streetwerkz is the company out of Columbus that has been on Spike TV's 4x4 Channel)

UNFORTUNATELY they said it would be 2-3 weeks to get everything completed

So when everything FINALLY comes back into my possession i will finish out this build thread

Stay Tuned!

Alright well i got some stuff done yesterday during this little build i got going on.
Thought i would go ahead and share.
Found some rust where the front bumper bolts on so i went ahead and prepped it and put the first coat of paint on it. More pics following tomorrow
Also i purchased some GTP hood louvers and will post a photoshop moc-up of what it should turn out to look like
Enjoy!

Alright well I have the Poison Spyder Trailgate and rear bumper completed so I finally took the Jeep out of the barn and gave her a bath to take some pics for you guys
Before and After Pics of Course
Also you may notice my fancy new Savvy Tail lights. Yes I did tint them a little.
Also I bought some LED license plate bolt lights
And even made a custom 3rd LED strip brake light wired to each turn signal, and a 3rd back up bar light
Pics of the lights soon to come, until then here is a sneak preview
