Yet another stupid question
« on: December 21, 2017, 06:54:30 AM »
 Exactly what purpose  do the louvers on the on the tailgate serve? Mine are pretty beaten up, a few are missing. Replaced Megan's rear bumper and hers are pretty rough as well. Going to buy us each a set of tramp stamps  to cover the unsightly area behind the stock tire carrier.

When you slam the doors shut the louvers are air vents.....
so you can actually close the doors....

Makes sense more than the bear therory. So the aftermarket tramp stamps that are ventilated accomplish the same thing I assume. Still feel better about the bears.

This is correct. More of an issue with a hard top than a soft but Ive seen people with the vent removed slam their door and the back glass pop off the screws

Trou and Russ have done a great job as president's. Your knowledge and willingness to help the nubs was greatly appreciated.

Congrats!
I prefer a 4.0 in my Jeep since I have the minivan to go fast and get good gas mileage.
