Need POE or Series liftgate pics.

I need to figure out if I want to use the handle on the one I got or not. On a POE it just sits there, right? I can't remmber. Is there a prop rod or struts?

Ron

edit: nevermind, I answered my own question.

I like the handle. I realize some have fashioned a "lip" a la fiberglass hardtop to keep the gate closed, but I use the handle to good effect.

Mine has the lip and a factory seal. It does not have a key though. It is pretty nice for a liftgate, if only I had a hardtop to mount it on ....

Yours has the lip on the outside right? That won't work with a sideways hinging tailgate and a brake light bar. I don't have a key to my handle either, but since it can't be opened with the bar and tire in the way, locking the back door takes care of it.

Why won't the lip work with the side swing tailgate?

Crap, I never thought about the lip and side swinging door. I think the lip is removable on mine...

Follow-up Post:

I'm assuming there is no clearance to open the liftgate without opening the door to move the light bar/tire out of the way but you can't do that because the liftgate lip holds it closed?

It is riveted on but it will leave holes. I still don't see (wait ... now I see why it won't work)

edit: anyone want to buy a galvanized tire carrier and/or light bar?

LOL. this sucks.. So what are the options?

1. Pull a Ron and go old school tailgate. What do you for your spare tire then?

2. Remove lip and fill holes with rivet, maybe with lip reversed? Pressure of the tailgate holds it closed?

I was kidding on the tire carrier. I plan to reskin mine anyway so it is no big deal to eliminate the lip. The struts hold it closed on a POE. I have one, but I need another one and two upper brackets.

I just put rivets in the holes, it looks great, since there are already so many rivets on it anyway. I bought 30lb gas-struts and ball-joints from mcmaster carr and had a nice prop system set up for about 60 bucks. I still use the t-handle and interior lock-rods to keep the thing closed. LenB set his up differently, but I don't know where he sourced his parts.

The series lift gate handle operates two rods that slide in to rings fastened to the side panels on each side. I can't really post a pic since my side panels set up for a lift gate are up in the rafters of my garage.

I need those two little pieces on the side panels if they are surplus to your needs.

You actually don't, just notch the flange on the top for a good fit. That's how I've been running mine.

Ron, sorry, I do need them. I don't run the hard top too often, but do sometimes.
