    Default Rear door to tail gate swap

    Yes, I've done it and it works great. Give me a few days and I'll post pics and narrative.

    Start with the lower hinge as a guide. Use shims and/or a helper to keep the gate level and square on the sides while you drill holes in it. Keep it level and in place while you mark the placement for the second hinge holes on the gate and rear of the rover. Use the second hinge as a guide, marking thru the holes as you hold the hinge against the gate and body.
