No it is a 77 CJ tailgate with original hinges. The cables, mounts, and "nut serts" for the bottom of the hinges are from SWAG Offroad.
This is the kit I got from SWAG but without the hinges
Since I was using the original latches I had to make brackets for them to go to so the gate would fit snug to the tub.
Latches are in the corners.
The L bracket was made out of UHMW. Got the idea from another thread on here.
This is how it looks closed and latched
jscherb who has multiple threads on here showed these in his trailer build so you wont have to pull the cover to open the tailgate. I will be going to these or slam latches.
If I do the slam latch I will have to make an L bracket to go from the pin to the outside of the jeep between the gate and the deck cover to open. That will only be 4 screw holes in the tailgate. If I do the other latches I will have to drill a 3/4" hole thru it. Can't really decide which way to go right now.
I can tell you it is strong as hell.
Haha thanks for all the info man I'm dong this. Gonna try and keep the stock tailgate though somehow. That thing is bad ***
