I believe this will help the hinges a good bit. The hardest part was getting the hinge bolts out, two of four were very difficult.Helpful (0)

Great product for the price
The concept on this is the exact same as the Mopar kit for $500 more. Works perfect and super easy to install. It actually looks a lot better on my JL than I thought it would. There is no way I would spend the extra money on the Mopar kit after installing this one!Helpful (3)

Great product, great price
Tailgate reinforcement works great. Definitely no need to pay $600 like most others are when this is available. Especially since anything over 35" should be on a bumper carrier anywayHelpful (1)

Easy to install!
Seems to be holding my heavy 35” tire and rim very well on an aluminum tailgate. Had to readjust the gate for proper operation I tried the tape and the cardboard wedge trick and the gate still wound up off a bit. Well worth the money and the time.Helpful (1)

Will this work with a Smittybilt Tire Relocation Bracket? https://www.extremeterrain.com/smittybilt-tire-relocation-bracket-2018-jl.html
These two items will work together yes.
Does this eliminate the rattle of the spare?
These certainly can help eliminate or prevent the rattle of your spare.
The jeep manual says max weight including the spare is 85lbs. If I am not doing any off roading or hard driving...strictly street to and from work, then do I really need to add this. I am running 33" BFG a/t on 18" Fuel Assault wheels. The spare weighs in at 110lbs.
With your setup we would recommend installing some sort of tailgate reinforcement.
What is the material? Or what is it made of?
This is made of steel.
Is it compatible with a Smittybilt Tire Relocation Bracket?
Unfortunately we have not tested this panel with the Smittybilt Tire Relocation Bracket, so we would be unable to guarantee fitment.
Yes, the RedRock 4x4 HD Tailgate Reinforcement Panel can be used with theRedRock 4x4 HD Tailgate Mounted Tire Carrier. You should not need anything else to safely mount a 35" tire, as long as your wheels have the correct backspacing and offset for how wide your tire is.
This is designed to reinforce the tailgate hinges and is constructed of a very durable laser cut material. This will not provide any additional tire clearance for example to run a 35" tire you may require a spacer or adjustable carrier
No drilling is required for install, it will mount on the factory locations.
This item does not come with spacers that will need to be purchased separately.
The items in questions should work together, but you may need to space out the relocation bracket to match the tailgate reinforcement.
This is designed to reinforce the tailgate hinges, but will not provide any additional tire clearance. To run a 35" tire you may require a spacer or adjustable carrier
This will not include anything for the driver side of the tire mount.
