Mopar has everything you need to do this. I'm using the Mopar Performance Parts tailgate reinforcement + the Mopar spare relocation kit. They are designed exactly for this purpose. I mounted my 37" Maxxis Razrs on my tailgate and I still have an inch of clearance to the bottom of my bumper. Fits perfectly. I also used the Mopar 3rd brake light relocation kit to move it to the spare tire bolts. I'm a cyclist so I also have my Kuat rack on the back.

Do you have issues with the tailgate sagging? Any rattling? Have you been offroad yet?

I just relocated mine to the inside.. In all seriousness this is temporary but I am going with an internal mount from Excessive Industries, I prefer the additional approach angle as well as the weight centered over the rear axle instead of on the tailgate.

Terraflex kit. Moves brake light and has a nice aluminum housing for the camera. Easy install.

Teraflex as well. The only negative is that my (-15) offset slightly impedes my camera view, but doesnt bother me too much.

These relocation kits that only attach to the gate or gate hinges... Do they really do anything to reinforce it? All the weight is still on the tailgate hinges...
