JK Drop Down Taigate Conversion Kit

This kit converts the traditional swing out tailgate found on the Jeep JK to a fold down design using your existing tailgate.

The kit is a 100% bolt on with the exception of 6 drilled holes 2 in the tailgate and 4 below the tailgate to mount the hinges. The kit installs with minimal shop tools, no welding or fabrication required for installation.

This kit will hold over 400 lbs, see picture above. This is done by using the best hinges in the industry Kentrol stainless steel hinges. The bottom portion of the tailgate is covered with 1/8" thick steel plate to distribute the load evenly and on the driver side hinge there is a 4.5"x4"x1/4" thick square backing plate to tie in both inner layers of the tailgate giving this kit incredible strength.

The 16 gauge steel Jeep logo and JK grill image is bolted over top of 16 gauge 6061 aluminum for a unique look. These two plates are spaced out on the bottom to allow air flow while replacing the factory air vent on your tailgate.

All brackets are laser cut out of 16 gauge, 1/8" and 3/16' steel and formed on a press break. All bolts are stainless steel to eliminate any potential rust.

The kit uses your existing tailgate latch mechanism so your tailgate will remain lockable and rattle free.

In the kit there are two passenger side upper right hinge covers one flat plate and one made out of 3/16" steel that is designed to hold a CB antenna. The kit is compatible with your existing hard top or soft top.

Your spare tire will need to be attached with an after market swing out tire carrier. This kit is compatible with either a bumper mounted tire carrier or a tub mounted tire carrier.

A fold down tail gate has many ideal uses, dinning room table, work bench,
changing table, beer holder, cutting board, and increased room for 3rd row seating.

$249.99

Thanks Troy

I had a guy order up the kit last month and requested a latch for the upper right hand side of the tailgate, similar to what I did for the TJ's. His JK tailgate was bent from a prior accident and needed all the help it could get. So I had a production run of two additional brackets made for those of you who are looking for additional support.

I am selling the two brackets as pictured, along with the toggle latch for $35.

Thanks Troy
