I pushed in my tailgate while lifting the latch and it actually opened! I thought it was totally broken.
Now I can load stuff in my jeep again.

You should fix it because it will eventually break again.

Thanks I kinda wish I could have left the mesh I used silver but I was a little worried it might have been a little flimsy so I plastidipped it hoping to gain a little bit of strength.

Today I did a little more work on my pinch seams to gain a little bit more clearance for the 33's, also did a little bit of trimming front and rear but nothing major for the time being. Gonna wait til I get adjustable control arms to decide what if anything needs to be trimmed or if I can just get away with bump stops. I also had a hell of a time with wheel studs today, broke two of em and decided to replace 4 others to avoid breakage in the near future, also threw a set of rear pads I had sitting around the garage on since mine were pretty well shot. Last thing I did was pull off the front bumper cover, I'm trying decided if I wanna trim the bumper cover and put it back on or if I'm just gonna plasti dip the bumper its self and leave it like that. Heres how she sits as of tonight.

Did most of the wiring for my e-fan. All I need now is the relay trigger inputs and to get the fan in the vehicle and she'll be ready to go.

Well, the fan anyway. Still needs a new tie rod end.

Looks good how it sits now. I ran mine without the bumper cover for a couple months and it looks a little weird now that it's back on. Thought the fog lights looked kinda out of place with it off though
