WTB T3C tail gate or good photos of original

Post by signsup » Fri Apr 17, 2020 9:04 am

I know it's a trailer, but it's civi, not military, so I thought I'd post over here. Picked up decent trailer and it has original hinges but no tail gate. I need one or need to create one. Original fulton coupler, landing leg, reflectors, tail gate chanins, etc., so a tail gate and this is a nice civi trailer. Looks like tail gate was made originally from front panel, which I can salvage, but the frame and latch and construction is what I need.

Thanks in advance.

Metalshaper made a very nice original style tailgate for me. It's just like the original. You should be able to find him on youtube or the cj2a page.

Good Morning,

MD Juan makes them and some of the vendors carry them.

Yes, I did find a vendor that lists the MDJuan tail gate, but doubt that he has it in stock. Will call Monday, not that I know it exists. $170 plus shipping plus $20 for two hinges. I doubt that I could get a local shop to fabricate one for that money. This vendor also sells a floor, so I will wait till I get it back from the sand blaster to see if I need to go that route as well. Fingers crossed.

Now for that elusive Arrow 41 tail light...

Thanks guys,

The CJ2 page has a a forum section for these trailers that is most helpful. You may want to post there to see if anyone has one they would part with. https://www.thecj2apage.com/
