Tailgate hinges

Has anyone tried putting reinforced hinges on? My hinges seem to be struggling a bit with the true swing and tire. I have a tire swing that bolts to the tail gate then 35x12.50 spare tire. Any ideas?

I would look at using the Teraflex Carrier 4838100. The Mopar branded vesion of this, is what Jeep offered for the '16 Red Rock, and what we believe is being offered as an option on all of the '17 Wranglers.

Just installed it. Rock solid. My 33 inch tire and wheel combo only weighs about 90 lbs, but I smoked the hinges on my TJ, so not taking any chances.

It feels like the hinges aren't as stressed?
