      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.

        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.

        Great storage for molle attachments

        This door cover provides a great way to have storage without using all of your trunk space, especially in my 2 for Rubicon. Easy installation and no problems with sagging if you correctly use molle attachments.

        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.

        4 2015 Rubicon - BigSixx

        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!
