    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.

      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

      Keep it all in One Place

      These bags are perfect for organing freaks like me. I hate loose stuff laying around. Small hand tools, bungee cords, miscellaneous small gear. Keep it neat!

      Is OK, nothing fancy

      Install simple and easy with basic tools. One snap was broken, but the are plenty to secure it to the molle. Big bag was able to fit tow strap and tree protector. The little bag, a purse, is useless. For the price it should warrant 2 big bags or 1 big and 2 small.

      Great storage for gear that's stays in the jeep

      Bought this to store gear that never leaves the jeep (straps, wrench controls, tools, d-rings) and it has been great. Bag is convenient and out of the way. Makes no noise when wheeling.

      Tail gate an

      Mounted on the tailgate nicely, But it does cover up part of the vent in the tailgate. The pouches appear to be adequate and look like they will attach securely. After a short off-road excursion on a washboard road the poches slide and made it impossible to close the tailgate. On of the poches came unsnap and was just drooping down. I don't feel I gained much buy the cover. Money would have been better spent on boxes or a drawer.
