My '87 was rear ended (before I bought it). I have another tailgate to put on. Do the hinge pins slide out or do they have to be cut? Can I use 1/2 of a hinge from each? Does the tailgate have to be removed to get at the bed side hinge bolts? I'm dealing with some crumpled metal here so my access is limited.

they have a little keeper clip on them and should tap out. the hinge bolts come out from the bumper side,yes you can use half of each with no issues as long as the half on the car is strait.
