HELP! Need TJ tailgate hinges!

My friend was driving down the road and his '98 tailgate hinges/pins popped and separated from the half on the body. The door is ok, but I need new hinges. Anyone have a spare set lying around they can sell? Need ASAP.

Um. Kinda pricey since it doesn't solve the hinge issues of aluminum parts and a steel pivot pin. You know, the problem that causes all TJ tailgate hinges to eventually sieze up. Sure is purty for a mall crawler though.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Our hinges have no issues and are MUCH stronger than stock... and are actually really inexpensive for billet products. 5yrs and no issues, many happy customers. Its just an option.
PS. And it does solve the problem of the weak stamped steel hinges that rust and bend. Ours are aluminum = no rust and STAINLESS STEEL = no rust... not to be compared with the cheap stock hinges. As for the look, if you don't like raw aluminum you can have them anodized or powdercoated or painted any color you like...
