    JL tailgate check strap

    Just noticed today after four wheeling that my tailgate check strap was mangled and broken. I have no idea what happened but more importantly anyone have a price on one? I have looked and cant find it at all and dealers wont be open till Monday.

    Pretty sure a wheeling trip had nothing to do with it. Do you have kids? Most likely dealer part. Quadratec has them for JK don't see one for the JL

    I'm not saying wheeling specifically did this. I do have kids. It definitely happened during the trip though and they swear up and down they didn't do it and so does my wife lol im guessing my wife did it though maybe forced it shut somehow some way I mean we had a cooler in the trunck also but it doesn't have a single scuff on it so who knows. Anyhow though I'm just wondering on a price is the big question cause I have been to the dealer to grab some thing like plastic tabs and small interior screws for the overhead trim and they are expensive as crap! Should be a simple fix though I would think

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.
