Part ID: JP54-003

Vehicle wear-and-tear is bound to happen over time, especially if you like to play hard. At MORryde, we manufacturer the replacement accessories that matter most, like our Jeep Wrangler JK Tailgate Hinge. When factory hinges begin to wear out, some Jeep enthusiasts might notice a loose tailgate, an annoying rattle or a sagging rear door that is hard to close. This heavy-duty hinge kit restores the integrity of the Jeep Wrangler JK tailgate.

This MORryde hinge is built for longevity. The only greaseable hinge on the market, this replacement hinge has 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 2-year-old JK factory tailgate hinge (left) has become rusted around the hinge pin. The factory steel pin also turns in a thin-bearing surface without any grease fittings, resulting in added wear-and-tear that causes rust, sag and rattle. Meanwhile, MORryde's hinge (right), 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 and heavy-duty Spare Tire Carrier for spares up to 40".

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 both the reinforcement and the spare tire carrier for optimal reinforcement, both sold separately.
