swing tailgate??

anyone ever fabbed a swing tail gate from a stock series item? I can't see that much difference other than a few more holes. Certainly not worth $575.

Any pics or technical advice would be appreciated.

Yes you can do it. Buy one from wise owl if you can not find one used.

have you done it? Do you need to modify the tailgate at all or just drill holes for the hinges and lift handle/lock? Do you have any door handles around, would like one with a lock.

I did it last month, got it from wise owl. you will need to drill holes for the hinges and cut out a spot for the handle.I havent cut out the spot for the handle yet. Ive been to busy trying to get my truck ready for MAR.
I believe the door handle from the passanger side will work for the rear door. I think it was $60 from Eric at AB and the rear door was $200 from Wise Owl.

I just picked a NAS tail gate up on ebay so Ill be selling the Wise Owl tail gate.

Take a little time and make a station wagon rear door work.

I can take it off your hands, any way you can mark the proper holes before sending it by using your NAS as a template? SHipping to 77035. PM me.
