        Great product

        Heavy duty hinges! Install is straight forward. Took an hour and half from start to finish including paint. Totally eliminated the rattle after a 33” tire. Only gave 4/5 stars because the packaging did not include the black auto tape (even though the instructions referenced it).

        Completely stopped my tailgate shaking. If you have a bigger than stock tire that's rattling your tailgate, this is the solution

        Great Product

        Very sturdy. Relatively easy to install. I gave it 4 stars because there a small chip in the paint on one of the pieces. Not a huge deal, but not as tough of a finish as I would like.

        4 2014 Wrangler - jeeporelsa Installation Time: Afternoon

        Will sag without shims

        4/5 for the instructions because if it doesn't get installed properly it's worse than factory. 2 things: 1) If you have the whole reinforcement kit, open all the boxes and read the instructions first to avoid having to undo your work. Instructions do not specify there is a sequence to the kit. 2) Use shims. The first time around I had tailgate sag, close to dragging on bumper with a 32" tire. I shimmed the tailgate with it barely open (in order to raise it higher than if it was closed), once it was shimmed, I then tightened all the bolts. This seems to be giving me about a 1/4" - 1/2" of tailgate clearance. We'll see how it performs with a 35" tire. I'd like to put on the MORryde trail rack, but I'm just not super confident in the tailgate sag still with even more added weight.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Thinking about installing the hinges to offset the weight of a 35" tire. I want to leave the factory tire mount on and just upgrade the hinges. What are your thoughts?

      • 35's with the MORryde Heavy Duty TailGate Hinge Set, would work just fine, along with your stock factory mount. This is exactly what these hinges were designed for, to support a heavier tire.

      Helpful (15)

      How much extra weight can these hinges support?

      • The hinges can handle pretty much any size tire, but once they're installed the weak link is the tailgate - heavier tires can break the spot welds on the tailgate sheet metal. It depends a lot on the type or roads/trails you drive, but in general, once you are in the 75 lbs. and over range for your spare tire/wheel combo, it's a good idea to also install the MORryde tailgate reinforcement. Some people run heavier tires with just to MORryde hinges installed, but best practice at that weight of spare is to also install the tailgate reinforcement.

      Trying to fix the rattle in the tailgate of my JK. I have a 33” spare and am planning on buying the hinges. Is the reinforcement kit even necessary or should the hinges get the job done? And what reason is there to buy the tire carrier- would the stock one work? If the hinges are good enough to support the weight of my spare I would prefer not purchasing both of the other items.

      • The MORryde Heavy Duty hinges will help with the rattle. However, we do recommend that you get the MORryde reinforcement kit as well, because it will help protect your tailgate from damage, which may be due to running oversized tires, whereas the factory spare tire carrier is intended for factory sized tires.

      I bought a pair of these about a year ago and know when I open the tailgate all the way it squeaks. What can I do to make it stop squeaking?

      • You can use WD-40 or a similar lubricant to help with the squeaking.

      Can I use the factory hinge covers on those? If not what covers do I need to order?

      • No, the MORryde Heavy Duty TailGate Hinge Set will not allow reuse of factory hinge covers or use aftermarket covers.
