    This happened this past weekend while coming off of a ledge. The damage was isolated to brackets holding the tire, no damage transferred to the tailgate!

    clunk noise at my gate....

    Hey guys... first of all thanks for all the info you have here,
    i just installed my tire carrier, i changed the gate stopper hinge as the instruction said, but now i have a very bad clunk noise every time the stopper "gets in or out" the stop...

    i read that only with some minor changes in the bolts could be fixed, but is still the same... Do you have any tip to make it disappear???
    here you can se what im talking about , just mine stills with the noise...

    I left the stock arm in there. The instructions said that the arm provided with the kit was optional (I think) so I just left it alone.

    Maybe go back to the original arm? Maybe the bolts are too tight and stripped in the tailgate?

    Looks like those two bolts connected to that hindge are loose. Mine does the same until I tightened them up.

    solved.....

    Results that if the bolt diameter is not exactly the same than the inner diameter from the door arm, so it will make noise every time you full open and close the rear gate. as the same if the small hinge bolts are loose.

    so, step one make sure that the bolts are very tight, step two made a head shaft who can be locker with a truac lock and voila.... the noise is gone off course the hinge holes and the door arm holes are the same diameter and the shaft is little bit tight in them... so there is no space for movement here are some pics..

    Did the tailgate bend?

    His build thread said only the 2 metal brackets to the carrier bent. Tailgate was fine, he also said if the hardtop was on the window would’ve been busted.

    No, it held great, i have the tire back on there already, I’m thinking of getting a hitch skid to try to prevent this from happening again. It cost $130 to replace both brackets.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
