Replacement Tailgate

Hi Folks,

My 1993 YJ tail gate has given up the ghost and rusting through. Plus it has a nice bend from the former owner who backed up into something with the spare tire on.

There is a guy on eBay selling pre-painted new doors for $299 plus $100 to ship. Still would have to move over lock, etc. form old door. I think they are either Crown or Omix replacement

Or am I better off finding a used OEM tailgate locally and having it blasted and resprayed at a hometown paint shop to match my YJ.

Is there a better option out there?

Thanks in advance.

-Chris
