SW to ST Tailgate Question

I'm trying to convert my SW to a ST and I'm stumbling at the tailgate. I've got an external wheel carrier and am looking at a side open gate. I read through Dave Lucas' POE thread and think that's the best idea I can go with. Where I'm having problems is getting the full list of parts needed to get the gate built.
Near as I can tell I need the following-
Lower Tailgate Assembly (320604)
2 hinges (BHB710100)
Seals (not sure what part #s to use as a swing gate)
Door Handle (not sure what part #) OR should I just use an Anti-loose latch and an existing eye?

Any help identifying the missing part #s would be appreciated. Also, does anyone sell a "kit" that has everything needed?

The hinges are the same as on a SW so just use the lower two. The upper one of the lower two (the middle on a SW) has to be relocated slightly.

That, the tailgate, and some way to latch it is sufficient. The SW latch is the same as the ST tailgate so you can use that. You can cut down your SW seals to work too.
