    Design. If you're looking for more space, this Smittybilt G.E.A.R. tailgate covers delivers just what you need. Designed specifically to fit in well with G.E.A.R. seat covers, this product is made from high quality, durable 600 denier polyester. It's a totally UV stable cover, which means you won't have to worry about the sizzling sun as you take your Jeep on or off the road.

    Storage Benefits. There storage options are virtually endless with these tailgate covers. They essentially take a space that's currently wasted, and turn it into a place where you can add numerous storage sacs, filled with all your gear. This kit comes with two interchangeable bags, which can be removed from the cover. Pack them up with everything you need, attach them to the convenient cover, and when you get to your destination just simply detach them and go. You can also add additional bags if you find your needs exceed what the two included bags can handle.

    Install & Fitment. One of the great things about this product is the ease of installation. You will need a drill, but the simple instructions can be followed by anyone with even minimal skills. Once the cover is installed, it's there for life, or until you remove the brackets, but you can always add and remove bags at will. For those days when your Jeep is full the brim and you don't need these extra sacs, you can simply remove them. On the days you need that extra space, just strap them back on. It's that simple.

    Application. Fits 2007-2018 JK Wranglers, including Rubicon and Unlimited.

    Is there another color beside black? AZ is dusty and black soon looks bad.

      Awesome mod

      This is a super simple install that provides great storage options. What is typically unused space in a Wrangler can really be transformed into a very convenient and useful way to store light gear. I highly recommend!

      Little more work

      Packaging should try to have the main panel lay flat upon getting it. With it folded it really was warped and needs 2 people to install. One just to help pull and stretch it flat.

      Tailgate cover

      Used some extra screws and washers to make nice and tight , also cut some plastic bottoms and put a small bolt to keep the tight and help retain shape of bags . Smaller bag could be bigger , quality of material is great !

      Great storage option

      I have the SmittyBuilt storage vault as well. They both fit nicely together. Just can't stuff the bags to the max. you have ~5 inches between the tailgate and the vault. It is nice to be able to have those everyday items, like cargo straps, or bike locks in the bags. instead of going into the vault and taking up space in there. Gave it medium fit star, because it doesn't line up with the tailgate perfectly. you will have to drill outside of the recommended spots (JK 2017). but good drill with metal bit, you will be fine.

      Great gear. Easy to install

      I looked all over for the gear I wanted to install in the tailgate. This looked good. The gear was made good and easy to install. It fit the tailgate great. I was able to add the first aid kit I wanted to install. The only thing I will say is if you have the stock subwoofer like I do you can not mount anything to the far left side. But it didn't stop me from saying great gear for a great price.

      Love the new Smittybilt gear tailgate cover. I’m always needing more places to stick stuff.... Easy to install but even though I have a 2016 Rubicon, I still had to take my tailgate hinge bracket off. Directions said I didn’t have too.
