ZJ Latch repair
The 98 I bought for my son had a saggy drivers door that had caused the latch to get damaged and door skin to tear and dent. Couple days ago we took care of the lower hinge pin and bushings so that the door was solid and then ordered a new latch/actuator. I initially planned on welding the crack but then decided that the metal was so thin it would be a waste of time. So a reinforcement plate was in order. Oddly enough, Jeep provides you with one when you replace the latch - you just take the metal off the old one, cut off the tabs and there you go. A perfect plate that already has the countersinks on both sides and fits perfectly.
