How to Remove Tailgate?

Ok, I know this is probably going to seem like a really stupid question, once I find out, but here goes...How do you remove the tailgates on our Broncos? Mine is a '66 and getting the support things unhooked from the sides is a piece of cake. It's getting it off the swivel at the bottom that I can't figure out. Most tailgates I've seen come off when you pivot them at a certain angle and just slide right off. Mine doesn't seem to be engineered this way and it looks like the only way to get it off is to unbolt the swivel mounts from the body. Is that right?
