Despite much eye rolling, and eyebrow raising of the "you're kidding me with this redneck kludge" variety. Our local jeep guru and welding maestro humoured me and affixed plate A to hinge B as a solution to my tailgate less escapades. Its better than my zip tie antics.
This is a hinge with snipped pins from my brief crawler concepts ultra carrier (now on Mrs Gnarlyswines jeep).
Replacement bolt means a lot tighter than stock so no chance of the plate swinging freely.
Unspoilt by progress.
