Don't let your Jeep Wrangler JK Tailgate hit you in the a**

This post is for Jeep Wrangler JK owners (Wrangler 2007-2009) If you don't own a new Wrangler, go read the comics.

So, I love my 4 door Wrangler Unlimited (Rescue Green) but I have assorted pet peeves with it and the big one is that annoying tailgate that is always closing on me everytime I'm back there trying to get Sierra in and out of the back, or everytime I'm loading groceries, or unloading stuff from my trip to Home Depot, etc. If you have a JK, you are nodding right now. In fact, I think the only time I swear is when that goddamn door closes on my fingers or hits me in the a**. Aargh!

So yesterday, a product shows up here and I'm buying one. It's the Jeep Wrangler JK Rear Door Gas Strut. Open the tailgate or close the tailgate. Either way, it's a slow, smooth transition from open to close to open again. My butt feels better already. The rear door gas strut is under $50, and worth every penny. If you pick one up, let me know what you think.
