    No pun intended

    The skin on the JL tailgate is aluminum.
    I only mentioned it because Teraflex had torque recommendations for the tailgate bolts for their carrier. You are usually very precise with those numbers. Just saying.

    LOL!! It's a shame TeraFlex cares more about tailgate torque recommendations than the quality control of their products. Not sure how having a tight bolt would have prevented this.



    Like I said, I am precise with things that actually matter. If a bolt on the tire carrier came loose, you'd most likely hear and or see it well before it became a problem. If a bolt came loose on your suspension or driveline, you could have a real problem on your hands. But of course, that's just me.

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.
