    Review & Install Video

    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.

    Fitment: 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 Details

    Does this come with the bags or are they sold separately? Thanks

    Where can the extra pouches be purchased

    • We don't sell these pouches separately, but most modular military style pouches found will work in conjunction with this GEAR system.

    Are the two bags held on by velco? I'm hoping they are quickly removable as I would like to use one of the bags as a first aid kit.

    JacobK

    • The pouches on the Smittybilt GEAR Tailgate Cover will attach via smaller straps on the back, the MOLLE or PALS system. You can reference the install guide here: https://lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J17586_Guide.pdf, to see how they attach as well.

    Are the pouches waterproof? And do they fit a 2 door with the back seat in place?

    samsmith031

    • The Smittybilt GEAR Tailgate Cover will fit 2 door models with the rear seat installed, though access will be limited with the tailgate closed. The pouches are not waterproof.

      Useful Storage

      I store gloves, jumper cables, ratchet straps, bungee cords, and winch controller in the larger bag. The smaller bag holds heavier items like hand tools. This solution replaced a heavy-duty plastic tote for carrying these items. This is not a quick attach-detach storage solution. I've added another small MOLLE bag. Easy mounting and solid construction.

      Great Product with Lots of Mounting Options

      Install was pretty smooth. Taped it to the tailgate per the instructions and drilled out the holes. The tailgate brace arm was a little disappointing. They could include holes for it for newer JK’s instead of making you cut them out yourself. As a result my top-right corner wasn’t as snug as all the other holes. I may look at some adhesive around the mount to snug it up. If the frame around it were made of a stiffer product it might help with sagging. But overall a really good product at a pretty good price.

      GEAR Tailgate Cover

      Well made product, installation was fairly easy. I used one of the provided holes to remount the door hinge bracket. Don’t really think this was the design intent but it worked OK. The provided instructions were not for my 2014. The Extreme Terrain video was more informative. All in all the end product is pretty nice.

      Tailgate Cover

      The product came as described, durable materials with an easy installation. My only problem is: The self tapping screws that are provided, there heads should be color matched to the material. I have a black cover with shiny chrome screw heads. I know it’s an easy fix with a black paint pen but shouldn’t have to. Great product in all.

      Tailgate Storage

      I absolutely love this tailgate storage set up. Installation was easy even though I may have taken longer than anticipated due to my quest for perfection. The 2 provided bags held a ton of essentials with little to no sag. Quality product.

      Convenient and Durable

      The two bags work well. The large one holds my tools while the smaller one makes a good first aid kit. The canvas backing and screws are holding without any signs of backing out. It's a convenient way to organize the limited trunk space if you don't mind drilling. Installation: No fitment issues. The canvas backing is folded for shipping and should be straightened before installation. Took approximately 45 minutes to install.

      Awesome

      Love the look, the added storage space that I have and the fact that both bags can be used as carry ons. Also the larger bag can be equipped with other smaller bags for extra storage is a huge plus.

      Not Bad.

      The included bags are okay, but the ability to add your own bags, straps, and clips is excellent. The mounting instructions say the 2018 JK does not require unbolting the tail gate arm - this is not the case.

      Doesn’t fit

      Ordered correct part. Doesn’t fit as described for my 2016 Rubicon 4 door. Overlaps door hinge. The only way the piece will fit is to cut it out. I had the same thing on my 2013 JKU and it fit nicely. Called and sent photos as instructed but no return calls or assistance for return.
