        Is this a set of hinges? Because it say "each". Is the price for each Hinge or for the set?

        Will the OEM black plastic covers on my 2004 TJ snap onto these hinges like they do the original hinges?

        will these hinges hold up a 33 inch tire?

        • The Rugged Ridge Tailgate Hinge Set are a factory replacement part. It is not recommended to run a 33" tire on the factory hinges so that would hold true to these as well.

            Fantastic quality

            I have ordered many parts from Rugged Ridge, from hood mounts, to locking latches, etc. My TJ has rusted out hinges and it caused the tailgate to sag. This Hinge set is a extremely heavy duty set. I was astonished on how sturdy they are compared to the factory ones, Very impressed, and a great product.

            work as expected

            they may not be the heavy duty type you can get but i decided i didn't need those if i took tire off the tailgate. once i did that and installed these hinges to replace worn out factory ones. smooth and good to go.

            Great replacement hinges

            Product arrived within 3 days of ordering. Very straight forward assembly and all parts were included. My original hinges were rusted out and needed to be replaced. I would recommend having a 3/16 Allen bit for a drill to make assembly easier. Overall great product for what I paid for.

            Great kit

            Bought these for my 2004 TJ to replace the factory hinges, they have a nice finish, feel study and are a nice swap for my OE hinges. The only down side is that I wish they had a better way to lubricate/grease as there is no grease nipple on them and living north of the boarder things need to be greased.

            Tailgate hinges

            My tailgate hinges were almost seized like to the point o couldn't open the tailgate. Found these on extreme terrain and they fit perfectly and work great... stripped a bolt taking old ones off but got it sorted anyway. Only issue I see is they do t completely cover the space that the factory ones did but you can't see it for the spare. Anyway great product at a great price.

            Nice look and solid contruction.

            Looks good and function well. Backing plate on lower hinge didn't use because there was no way that flat piece even comes close to oem backing plate. Had to bend top one to fit. Once again had to drill out every single bolt.

            very sturdy

            hinges look sturdy and finish is good and were easy to install but there was supposed to be a hardware kit and it was missing also they should tell you the plastic covers on stock hinges wont fit on these

            Sturdy and easy to install

            they do protrude a little more than the OEM hinges. but are a good replacement for worn or sagging hinges. they feel sturdy.
