Truck Tipper Gate Hinge Kit - Dual Swing Hinge for Truck Tippers

A truck tailgate hinge kit is a set of components that allow a truck tailgate to swing open and close. The kit typically includes two hinges, two pins, and two bushings. The hinges are attached to the tailgate and truck body, and the pins and bushings allow the hinges to rotate smoothly.

Many types of truck tailgate hinge kits are available, so choosing one compatible with your truck is essential. The most important factors to consider are the size of the tailgate, the weight of the tailgate, and the type of truck.

Here are some of the things to look for when choosing a truck tailgate hinge kit:
