Take a look at the attached link below.

Swagoffroad.com YJ, TJ & JK Fold Down Tailgate Conversion Kits


This drop down tailgate kit including shipping is $170 delivered to your door.

I have a few different add on options like aluminum tailgate covers and upgraded hinges depending upon what look and weight rating you are after.

Don't be standing around at your next tailgating party looking for a place to take a seat.

Thanks again, Troy

I appreciate your business.

Thanks Troy
i wish to to some thing very similar to my tail gate and i was wondering what the latches that you use are called?

what im looking to do is form a piece of 3/16th aluminum like you flat back kit but with no cut outs for the handle or key hole as i will not be using the stock tail gate.

it will be a custom tail gate that will drop down use two of those red latches to eliminate rattle and to lock it i will use the stock latch mechanism but with an electric actuator, that i will be able to unlock with my other power locks than unlatch it and drop it down.

i personally dont like key holes and such i like nice flat expanses of metal

I boxed the kit up last night and it is sitting on the shelf for UPS to pick up first thing Monday morning. As for how fast it will arrive to your door step I would give it 5-6 business days. It is a long ways form Oregon to the Peach state.

Thanks again for the order.

Troy

Well I finally got this finished. I'd be lying if I said it was one of the easier projects I've done. Fishing the bolt plates into the tub was the hardest part, but the wire welded to them made it possible. Well done.

I decided to paint the lower aluminum piece with textured rustoleum to match my bumper, grille, an sliders. I love the raw look of the aluminum on the tailgate itself. I hit it with a little mothers polish (by hand) and then some stainless steel cleaner I use on my fridge.

Here are some pics:

Nice job on the install . I always like to hear feed back on how the installation went.

Let me know if you have any questions along the way.

Thanks again Troy

Finally got to install the kit and love it already! Troy was very helpful and responded very quickly to all of my questions... no matter how dumb they were. Great job!

Looks good does the bottom right piece do anything or what? If I was you Id have spent the money to get rid of that awful body lift. What about if you have corner armor on? Does that affect the install? You cant go dropdown tailgate with tub-mounted tire carrier.
