That is one way to go about it.

I would if it came with one of those Mr. Johnson spacers so i could run your armor as well. The next stranger who compliments will be because it looks cool. anyone with a tj gets those people. yet, they have no idea how cool it really is and i love that.

I rarely find that aftermarket parts are upgrades. however, when i see Savvy, its usually the opposite. Thanks for sharing this with us.

The spacer is very easy. The part of the hinge that moves is bolted to the back face of the tailgate frame which is bolted to the tailgate using the original hinge mounts and nutplates in the tailgate.

The spacer is a rectangle about 2" x 4" x 3/16" thick with 2 holes in it for the bolts to go through. The thickness is the same as the armor. If you move the hinges on the tub out due to armor thickness, putting a spacer the same thickness under the hinge on the tailgate side moves the tailgate back to keep it in contact with the weatherstrip.

mrblaine, thanks for all the pictures of the install of the exogate and clarification of the spacer. Might be too late since you already installed it, but do you have any pictures of the spacer plate that you mounted behind the exogate frame to spacer it out equivalent to the Savvy corners? I'd love to send people to this thread so they can see how the exogate can work with the corner guards.

Nice build, what size lift are you running and do you have a BL. It looks like you still have stock fenders.

The frame is mounted to the tail gate like normal. The spacers are between the outside face of the frame and the inside face of the hinge.

I'll try to have Kat get you some pics today.

I have a custom body lift, mrblaine sawed off my body mounts and then them up higher on the frame.

I still have stock fenders, and I'll have to ask mrblaine about the lift size and get back to you later on that.

Is this the orange TJ on black majic's site. If so, it has changed quite a bit.

The lift is the Currie/Savvy 4" kit. I'm setting it up to show what can be done with a few simple solutions to achieve way above average ride quality and handling.

Blaine

Tell me more about the lift, the Savvy/Currie lift is on the top of my list, I want to also run 35's w/o getting to high. I will be ordering my lift and BL if needed in the next week or so.
