MORryde Heavy Duty TJ Wrangler Tailgate Hinges – JP54-025
These Heavy Duty MORryde TJ hinges are built for longevity. Part # JP54-025. The only greazeable TJ hinge on the market, these replacement hinges have heavy-duty bronze bushings that can be replaced (quickly and easily) in the unlikely event that the bushings wear out. In fact, the bushings can be purchased at most hardware stores for easy replacement, and unlike the factory hinge, this hinge does not use the breakage-prone factory plastic cover, better protecting the components.
In a side-by-side comparison, you’ll see that this TJ factory
tailgate hinge (top) has become corroded and is deteriorating. The factory steel pi
n also turns in a thin-bearing surface without any grease fittings, resulting in add
ed wear-and-tear that causes rust, sag and rattle. Meanwhile, MORryde’s hinge
(bottom), features long bronze bushings, a 3/8″ stainless steel hinge pin and grease fitting for smooth tailgate operation and longer hinge life.
For the ultimate tailgate upgrade (and reinforcement), pair these hinges with MORryde’s Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Reinforcement.
Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Accessory Tip:
MORryde’s tailgate accessory system is modular, meaning you can purchase and install whichever parts your situation demands. For example, when you’re still toting the factory spare, start off with installing just the hinges for a rattle-free tailgate. When you upgrade to a heavier spare that will fit on the stock carrier, then install the reinforcement along with the hinges. If you go to a larger, heavier spare, install the reinforcement (JP54-022)
