      Replacement Tailgate Pivot Latch. Make sure your tailgate operates exactly as you expect it to with the Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Pivot Latch Assembly. Designed as a direct replacement part for your Wrangler’s existing tailgate mechanism, the latch ensures your tailgate is held securely in place until you need to release it. The rotating assembly allows for easy release.

      High-Quality Construction. All of the parts used for the Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Pivot Latch Assembly are made using stainless steel, which protects against rust and any elements your Jeep may face during your off-road adventures. It also happens to give the latch a stunning silver finish. The manufacturers recommend occasional waxing of the latch to ensure it maintains its shiny and attractive finish.

      Tools Required for Installation. While installation is fairly straightforward, you will require tools to secure the latch into place. There are four (4) screws and four (4) bolts, meaning you should have a screwdriver and wrench handy.

      Limited Lifetime Warranty. The Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Pivot Latch Assembly comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against manufacturing and material defects. This warranty covers the entire lifetime of the product, though some exclusions do apply. Be sure to read the full warranty before making your purchase.

      Application. The latch assembly has been designed as a direct replacement part for use with Jeep CJ5 and Jeep CJ7 vehicles made between 1976-1986.

      Installation Difficulty. While the Jeep Wrangler Tailgate Pivot Latch Assembly is a direct replacement for an existing part, some tools are required for installation. As such, an intermediate level of skill is required. Installation should take approximately one hour.
