TJ Tailgate on my YJ?

Has anyone put a TJ tailgate on their YJ?

I might have access to one with hinges and all. Will it work with the striker on my YJ or will I need to change it out?


I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.

I'm pretty sure they are not interchangeable. When they re-tooled to the TJ they re-designed pretty much every body panel on the thing.
