I have fixed a bunch of these as a Chrysler collision tech it seems to me that when people paid 50 grand for their jeep the tailgate lined up. The automatic opener only lifts from e left side so when it closes it pulls downward on the crossmember where the hinge attaches. If you notice how the tailgate lines up to the roof when it is closed it will be low on the left side. The best way to fix this is take down the trim below the hinges and loosen the left side and slide a shim under the huge to lift it up a big washer will work too but you will either have to cut a slice in the washer or take the nut off the hinge comepletly if you do that have someone hold the gate open while you take off the nut
