    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.

            Much needed storage

            Easy way to store off-road gear. I haven’t put anything heavy in it yet, but I have tow straps, winch controller, gloves, etc.

            Tailgate cover review

            Its a great product that is easy to install. It fits the entire tailgate with no wasted space. My only complaint is that I have to unscrew my tailgate hinge to get the product underneath and the cut a hole in the cover itself. This could have been easily solved by having a cut out of where that part would sit. Other than that I have no complaints.

            Perfect fit, bags droop a little but nothing major. Dry easy to install make sure you pre-drill the attachment points.

            Creative storage option

            This is a creative and excellent storage option. Obviously you can’t put too much in the bags due to their size and you don’t want to add extra weight to the tail gate. The larger bag works great for my “truck bag” and allowed me to get rid of the small duffel bag I was using. I also added my Molle compatible first aid kit. I haven’t filled the smaller bag that came with it yet, but it’s a great size for a bag that you can easily grab and take with you on a hike or beach or even for some smaller basic tools.

            Works Great, Install is easy, but take your time.

            The fact it comes with the two bags makes this a great value and it works perfectly. The design could be better by having a 2nd grommet for the tail gate swing bar to install over, you will have to punch a hole or slice the fabric. Also be prepared to lay the cover out overnight so that it lays flat for the install. I used the swing bar to anchor it, then stretched out the cover to mark the first hole on the far side. Yes, you will need to drill into the tailgate, take your time so that you don't break the drill bit or scratch the paint up.

            Clever Bags for Packing Quick Escentials

            Very nice set up for packing quick items for just anything for every day use. Well made, rugged and looks awesome! Please keep in mind you do have to remove the support arm that keeps the door open, drill one hole through the material in the lower screw hole, 1/4" if I remember correctly but be gentle because you certainly do not want to damage the threads for that support hole. All in all, very well worth the money and time spent to install, about an hour or so.

            A little harder than it looks

            Let me start with I really like this cover. It was a bit harder for me to install than most make it look. I went through a couple drill bits, and wasn’t to found of the fact you had to cut (poke) holes through the cover to get the tailgate support bar to mount back up ( you would think they would manufacture the wholes with grommets for you). Also wasn’t a big fan of the fact the small bag it not quick release. It appears to be but once you get it and weave it in properly it is not. All of that said, I do like the overall fit and finish and am looking forward to the flexibility it will give me as I want to add small tools and a quick release first aid kit.

            Great use of the tailgate

            The instructions were very straightforward and easy to follow. However having a second person to hold it up while you’re drilling the holes is more helpful than doing it yourself. Took about 45 minutes
