      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.

        Awesome Product

        I really like how this product will come in handy when I get out on the trails later on this summer, as it has the storage bags that come with it, and I will be able to store items and things that I will need for my trip.

        It’s not straight

        Great product for the most part. Functionally great. The main part of it did not come straight for me so it looks loose on the bottom. Still works great though. The instructions say to use a screw driver once the holes are drilled but unless you’re Superman it the hulk, you’ll need to drill the screws in too.

        Tailgate Cover

        Arrived in good order. Had to drill holes to mount. Looks and functions great. Hung my camp gear on it. When I'm not camping I hang my tool bag.

        Just like it looks!

        Looks great, easy to install. Hardware was perfect (unlike so many cheap things you get nowadays), and its practicability rocks. Getting ready for a 17-hour road trip followed by a 90-day adventure and a return 17-hour road trip! Get'r done!

        Tailgate gear

        The tailgate gear was easy to install and set up. It’s nice having everything in the bags on the tailgate door and frees up space in the trunk.
