            I have the factory hard top so I was not sure if this would really work. It worked perfect with my Smitty Tonneau cover.

            This tailgate bar does the jobs it's asked to do. Pretty straight forward and easy install.

            Works great!

            This fits how it should and is easy to install. I don’t often run this as I have the back open, easy to take in and out.

            Does exactly what it’s supposed to do.

            It works great, I paired it with the Smittybilt Soft Top Cargo netting.

            I bought this after purchasing a used soft top that was missing the snap on brackets. found this kit with the brackets and the bar for only $30 dollars more than the brackets alone. It fit my OEM back window perfectly and i have had no issues with this product.

            Better than factory

            I needed this to replace the bent oem tailgate bar. It might just be my imagination but it seems more sturdy than the old oem. Fast shipment was a great bonus!

            tailgate bar

            Easy to install. Didn't realize I needed this until after I ordered my tonneau cover. Makes a big difference. Glad I got it.
