BJ'S OFF ROAD HINGE PIN SET

So just purchased my second 89 GW. The tailgate goes up and locks fine, however the passenger side hinge is loose and seems to be the pin. It moves around in the joint and even makes noise over bumps. Has anyone had success with BJ's hinge repair kit? Its $40 bucks but seems a lot better then trying to remove the hinge. IS the pin that hard to get out and back in? Do I need to do anything with the torsion rods?I did a quick search but everything seems to be old.

THX

Don't know about the tailgate pins but door pins are easy. support the weight of the door so it's not pulling on the pins, knock out pin, knock out bushings, install bushings, install pin. I'd measure what pins you need cause door hinge pins are cheap and easily avail. $40 a pair seems pretty optimistic but may be inline if they're special or rare. Generally stuff like hinge pins aren't specifically engineered for one specific model or year nor made by the auto company. The door pins I've used on FSJ's and Chev's were just generic found in the help section at Napa or Autozone etc. 2 pins with bushings in a package was about $5 a set. Again gate hinge pins may be a totally different animal than door hinge pins but before I'd guess and hope on a pair of pins for $40 I'd do some measuring and home work.

Thanks Joe. All the posts I see call for removing the hinges or knocking pins out maybe this part from BJ is new so that's why I thought I would ask.

The pin is stationary in the outer hinge that is bolted to the floor. The bushings are in the inner hinge.

You might be able to knock the pin loose with the gate closed then open it and remove the the inner hinge from the gate to do the bushings.

Ok sounds like I have to hit the factory repair manual for this one. Thanks.
