I have a couple of weld on hinges. They arent for a suzuki but they will work on anything.

I was so poor growing up ... if I wasn't a boy ...I'd have nothing to play with.

On a Samurai I had, the hinges had broken off at the pins because they were seized. I made a couple of steel plates to hold the tailgate on, bolted to the original location. Works fine until you can find another set.

Well i bought another set of hinges but getting the old ones off is not as easy as it sounds thanks to 18 years of rust
