    mattk

    • The Bestop Tailgate Bar will be the piece attached to the tailgate that the soft top rear window hooks to.

    I have a 2012 4 dr hard top and was given the Bestop dust cover as a gift. Do i need the tail gate bar to use the dustcover?

    lindag

    • The Bestop dust cover would require the tailgate bar to install it properly.

      Works good. Fit good and worked with the tonneau.

      I ordered a tonneau cover for my wife's jeep. Didn't realize we needed a tailgate bar because she has hard top.. probably could mention that in the description to save the headache and having to wait another week. Works fine now.

      This was a simple install. There were no instructions so figuring it out wasn't too bad. Fit was excellent and fit well with the Bestop Duster Deck Cover.

      Bestop Tailgate Bar for Deck Cover

      This product was super easy to install took about 5 min and was done. It sits at just the right height for the deck cover and looks great when installed. It came with the quick disconnects so that I can pop it on and off easy for when I need to put on my hard top. It holds everything snug and no flapping at highway speeds. The crew from Extreme Terrain helped me select the right part via chat and even helped me place the order. They give a great Military Discount as well this will be the only place I order from for my Jeep.

      Easy Install

      Took me about 10 minutes to figure it out without the instructions. I was a little concerned that I had to drill into the Jeep because the description mentioned "mounting screws". I didn't screw anything into the Jeep it seemed to snap in just fine and it wasn't moving anywhere.

      Up Down Left Right

      Works. Instructions bad. Took me way too long to know which way it was to fit. I still don't know 100 if I did it right. Think so. It's just a snap in bar but for hardtop owners who need this for a soft top application it's confusing. Also plastic end clips? Easy to steal this part.

      Good if you NEED one

      The tailgate bar came in a box like the rest of them, beat up tipped over, just really rough looking. Inside the box the bar was properly packed. The tailgate bar is superior to the same brand windshield channel in that it does not have a weld right down the center. However, the finish on it is far from superior or seriously lacking quality control. The lesson from experience is just be cautious with the bar. The fit of the bar is spot on, it looks good, it works great with the best top soft covers. Extra value versus price, ideally I feel it should be 25 to $30 less however I didn't have one, so now I do. Overall though I'm happy with it, it looks good, fits well, it works, gives me more options and it didn't cost an arm and a leg maybe just an arm.
