My son Jake came home for the weekend from LSU and helped me hang the tailgate.

I was worried about the color matching, but it looks fine next to the quarter panel.

So is that the rest of your painting? I mean, like cracking out the HVLP, careful masking, and base/clear? The rest is just little things here and there, right?

Nope, the hood and front fenders are the wrong color, it is darker than the rest of the jeep. A gallon was mixed wrong at NAPA.

I ordered a few things from BJ's Monday. The stainless lift bar for the tailgate glass is on back order. I'am off of work next week and was thinking I would be wrapping up the tailgate, but maybe not.

Really taking my time and trying to make sure everything is where it needs to be. Serehill did a great job figuring out how to fit that stuff in the gate. When I started fitting things, I said to myself, no way it was going to fit. It is very tight but I know it fits.

I have the safety switch wired in and I was able to pull the harness through that small hole at the bottom of the tailgate. Also have the wires for the license plate light in place, but not to a power source yet.

Wow, that is one clean and shiny looking tailgate. Very nice!

I want to see where you mount the plate, I never could figure out how to mount it in there, I talked to Rick several times, and just couldn't figure it out. I just have mine lying in there unsecured, but it keeps getting wet and blowing fuses...

bwwhaler, here is where I mounted mine. Two things, I have not tried it with the glass in place yet, but the regulator does clear it when going up and down. Also the harness I have does no have that bulky remote unit that I have seen in some of the upgraded harnesses.
