            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.

            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.

            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.
