Have you thought about how you are going to attach the swing-out gate?

I'm a fan of the linked, one handed operation of a linked gate. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    I didnt like the idea if linking it to the gate. Im afraid of damaging the tailgate if I take a hit. I chose to machine a door latch into tubing. Its pretty solid but still a double operation.20170320_155027.jpg20170320_155041.jpg

    Thx guys. Ran into a few issues with the tub as some members mentioned earlier that may be an issue and fought the latch mechanism a bit but it all worked out in the end. Just took a bit longer than expected. Tomorrow we will fi ish the tire/license plate mount hopfully. Later, ill add some roto mounts for fuel or water

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.
