Not to argue about it, but I got mine at O'reilly's 4 yrs ago, I use the hatch everyday, and they work like new. My hatch will smack you in the face if you're not paying attention.

I've got a nice pair of vise grips to hold my hatch open.

...when one of your kids leaves a door open and the battery goes dead. Then when you jump it, it doesn't run right until the check engine light comes back on.

When all the webpages you've saved to favorites are technical articles for mods, and parts for said mods, but you never have enough time or money to do any of them because your constantly trying to keep it running after you offroad it every weekend.

when the rattle sound match the intro to acdc's back in black

when you have a different key to unlock the door and to crank it

then you have to punch the license plate when you open the back hatch

when you friends ask why you still dive this heap and you push them out the door going 65

when you think you need to replace the window motor again so you do only to find the window lock was on.

when you cut a branch and keep it in the back to hold the hatch open.

when you switch from wanting 100$ to by your girlfriend a necklace to wanting 300$ to buy a new grille guard you saw on jeep forum.

when mom says "so you dont like face book bc you dont want the world to know about you but yet you spend all day on the internet talking to men about how they made their get away vehicles faster" and you reply, "mom chill its cool, their jeep guys"

When you wash it and find a ton of tree love under the mud.

Then you go and debate bedlining it all black
