    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.

            Great upgrade for our active lifestyle. This will be extremely useful for tailgating.

            great product

            Great use of otherwise wasted space. The pouches are easier to get off then put on but they work fine. Still have room on the door for other small items. Very handy.

            Good, but one issue

            This is a great way to organize a few hand tools in the rear. Bags have plenty of separated compartments. My issue with this is that there are no provisions to avoid or mount around the tailgate catch. In the instructions It had me unbolt the catch from the tailgate, mock the mount, drill and thread the screws, then cut holes into the fabric to reinstall the tailgate catch.

            Another great addition

            This ended up being a great solution to shortage of storage. Easy to install and it clears the rear speaker. I am going to try to get the door storage next. Great product!

            Great Idea but--

            Bought this for additional storage for recovery straps and tools. When the bags have stuff in them (at this point one strap, and socket tool and socket) it pulls on the molly straps. The stitching is coming undone on the base fabric which was screwed to my tailgate, and the bag is sagging so you have to lift the bag over the floor mat in the rear cargo space to close the door. The bag is attached as high as it can be.

            These were easy to install and they hold a lot of stuff! Really free'd up a lot of room in the back with things that you want quick access too.

            This product was very easy to install. The only complaint was that the small bag is pretty much useless. Its too small to put anything in it. The larger bag is awesome.

            Tailgate storage

            Storage installs easy. Great use for items instead of under the seats—pull strap, tools,etc. I’d buy again

            GOOD IDEA

            I read about people having sagging problems after awhile, so that's the reason for 4 stars. Also, it would be a great idea if you would carry a selection of individual and multi purchase packs in different sizes to fit the tailgate panel. I definitely like the clutter that was reduced. So does the dog as she has more room to herself.

            Tailgate Cover

            This is a great accessory to help organize your misc. stuff and keep it readily accessible. Only reason for the 4 stars is that the center mount hole on the rh (pax side) is too close to the tailgate arm attachment point.

            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.
