Pics of Damaged Tailgates/Hinges

I'm thinking about doing something stupid to my stock tailgate. I already have a 33" on a steelie on there and half the guys on here talk about damaging the tailgate with too much weight/non-stock spare. Well, before I do the stupid thing i'm thinking about (adding spare tire mounted hi-lift jack holder), i'd like to see some pics. How 'bout also stating how much weight was on there. I googled for pics but came up short. Thanks!

This was a mix of an accident / rust / me getting angry at the tail gate and hanging off it with only one hinge attaching it. i weight a good 200 pounds, and the one hinge held on real good, i doubt a 33 and a highlift could damage it worse..

after fixin it
