        Smittybilt GEAR Overhead Console

        Good product. The bags do hang lower than expected, which blocks the rear view. I have an '08 4 door wrangler and had to do some drilling with a couple of rivets but isn't hard at all. The bags and straps do come off easy for cleaning when you have the top off. The back portion of the bracket does squeak a little when off roading but can be tighten down easily. Hope this helps in any way, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for extra storage that has easy access.

        Good product

        It is heavy duty and easy to install. I didn’t like the hose clamps on the roll bar so I used wide sticky Velcro to hold it in place. I also hooked my CB radio to it. Fits great.

        08 2dr jk rubicon

        At first I thought it would be a great addition since us 2dr owners have very limited space. I’ve read reviews before purchase and knew that I would lose about 30 off my visibility in the rear view since the bags sag down a bit. Install took 1 hour fairly easy, directions were decent 5 stars ⭐️ on that aspect. I haven’t stuffed all the straps and sacks so too soon to tell but I’m assuming I won’t have any visibility once weight is added. ( I do believe you can get innovative and tighten down the mesh that holds all the Velcro straps’ you just have to get creative ) I gave 3 stars mainly because the NOISE now coming from the cabin. It was quiet besides some road noise from the mud crawlers. Now it squeaks and creaks when I’m going slow. I haven’t done harsh off roading yet but I know this will become extremely obnoxious. It’s a nice design, I like the functionality of it, instal was a breeze, just a little too noisy and restrictive in terms of visibility. For the price ... Hope this review was informative, see you on the trails.

        Tricky to install

        Took a while to get it on, but adds a decent bit of storage space for stuff that rarely leaves the jeep.

        Needs a bracket

        If I had a soft top it would have been a no brainer install. But I have a hard top. I had to fabricate a metal bracket that had a downward angle so that my freedom top will still work. Smittbilt should provide a bracket with this option. Not that hard to do and you can still see out the rear view and have your freedom top in use. My opinion, but smittybilt is a huge company and could afford to give this bracket.

        Very Versatile

        Item is a perfect fit once you replace the center hoop latch with the one they provide. Highly recommend if you are looking for extra storage space.

        Still On The Fence

        The overhead mount isn't centered in the Jeep. It is offset to the driver's side which reduces space for the driver. I frequently hit my head off of it when entering the Jeep. Not sure if I like it yet or not. I may pull it out and throw it away.

        Great item

        I love this overhead console. The hardest part of the install was getting the two torx screws holding the footman loop out. Once that was accomplished, the rest was a piece of cake. You get a nice assortment of molle pouches with this, too. If you need some easily accessible storage in your ride, this fits the bill.

      Is there any known or foreseeable issue with this in conjunction with the sun rider top for hard tops? Seems like it should work but you folks may see something I don't. Thanks

      • Hello, you should be able to use this in conjunction with the hard top. It might create some fitment issues when trying to latch down the middle latches as this covers them. But there has not been many known issues with them not being compatible.
