    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

    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 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.

      Perfect storage!

      Bought these a while back, and they work perfectly! I am a fellow Airsofter and am always going out to my local field and slingin' some BBs! This storage compartment helps me tote my gear around safely and secure!

      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.

      Decent Quality Product

      I would have given it 5 stars but I had to make my own hole in the product. This was so the screw from the existing bracket for the hinge on the rear door could go through the product and help support it. The product works great.

      Fitting

      Looks good in pictures, but I wish I could give it 5 stars. Think before installing (measure twice/cut once saying). The top structure should be a little thicker to keep it from sagging between the screws. It does not sag that much, but enough to look ugly. Of course if you do not load the pockets with stuff, it will not sag. I may add a 1" x 1/8" piece of aluminum to help support it or add screws in between their screws. The zippers are a little hard to open and close. My background is a union product designer and fabricator x 40 years.

      Excellent Product and Easy Install

      Let me tell you about my experience with this product! I have written an install guide for Extreme Terrain before and this was one product that came as ordered and did not need any explanation on how it goes on. I placed the top far right corner of the cover where I wanted it along the top and side edge of the tail gate and started to drill pilot holes where the rivets lined up. THAT EASY! Took about 20 minutes to place where desired and looks factory. You will have to remove the tail gate swing arm to get the cover tight, but it screws back in one of the exact holes it came out of (through one of the rivets) and only requires drilling one hole to fully reattach the tail gate swing arm. Seriously one of the best aftermarket purchases made for my 2017 JKUR and already using the pouches it came with and one I already had for my on the go Medical Supplies. The only thing I would change is the color of the screws so they match my Black interior, but nothing I can't change down the road if I want to.

      Simple

      Fit well and works good. Didnt like the fact I had to drill into my new tailgate. But it is secure. Make sure to have a high quality drill bit that is the exact size.

      Good product

      I gave this product 4 stars. The product quality is 5 stars. I downgraded the overall rating to 4 stars because the size of the backing material forces the buyer to do unnecessary work to mount it. The manufacturer could reduce the width by 1 inch and alleviate this problem with almost no impact on its usefulness.

      Good storage

      My new Jeep does not have very much storage space. Storing things on the back of my tailgate is perfect. Doesn't take up much space and is not moving around on the floor.
