Did the lift gate gas strut mod seen in the Mudd FAQ (http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series-tech/72891-gas-struts-rear-lift-gate-73-where-do-you-fin-em.html). Got the struts cheap from rvupgrades.com, and with a little unscrewing and a little grinding it was good to go. Results are below.

That was my brother, on take #3. I tried to get my son to open it, but he's used to newer vehicles and was too gentle. Take two, my brother opening it for the first time said, "Niiice!" and I was told that I couldn't post that because he sounded like he was from California.
