Jbweld might hold but what I have found is that if one of those struts break - well the tailgate, she is coming down, and pretty hard. It's dangerous actually.
Mine broke while camping so then I had to use a long stick to hold the tailgate up. The other strut was still helping but if the stick got knocked out it would crash down. I had to keep telling my young niece to stay out from underneath it. I'm pretty sure it would kill a child if the gate crashed down while they were under it.

but for real, you don't realize how heavy the hatch is until the hatch struts give out
