        Fit Like a Glove

        OK, I am a new Jeep owner and ours was missing the tailgate bar. Ordered this one and in less than 5 minutes it was in. It probably took me longer to unwrap the plastic bag the UPS guy left it in than it did to install. The kit also came with replacement clips for the tailgate, but I let the originals in place, so now I have spares.

        Quick and Easy

        Out of the box and onto the top. Five minutes with three to look at the instructions. LOL! I can't ask for much better than that. Looks good and does the job.

        Very easy installation

        This bar is a great finish for a rear dust cover. It glides right into place in the slot of the Bestop Dust Cover and then quickly snaps onto the rear bar of the jeep.

        Tailgate Bar

        It works for the need but comes up a little short on quality. I would say for the money get the tailgate bar from the factory for a perfect fit.
