Just wanted to find where all the aftermarket hinges could be found. Specifically the Aluminum ones. Aluminium, for you folks in the the UK.
I am going to replace and paint new ones, in the near future, to correct the Bubbling in the paint issues, due to the Galvanic Corrosion, caused by the steel hinges and aluminum doors/hood etc.
If you know of aftermarket hinges being made, please post about them, and a link if available. Quadratec is the only one I know of, that presently makes them.

I’m just taking guess here, but the door and tailgate hinges, I doubt you will find made of aluminum. I would bet these are made if steel so they will have the tensile strength, and durability of holding the weight when opened.

Quadratec had aluminum Door hinges, but I dont recall aluminum Tailgate hinges. Now I cannot find them on the Quadratec site.

Are you going to change the torx bolt? Cause finding one will be tricky.

i believe changing to an AL hinge and using the same bolt would result in the same outcome.
