      Design. If storage space is what you crave, then the Smittybilt G.E.A.R. tailgate cover is what you need. This clever design adds storage space to an area that's currently not being utilized. It was designed to fit in perfectly with G.E.A.R. seat covers, and is manufactured from durable, hardcore 600 denier polyester. It's also 100% UV stable, which means you don't have to worry about the sizzling sun damaging or fading your cover.

      Storage Benefits. There are as many storage solutions in this single product as you want there to be. It all begins by installing the cover onto your tailgate. You then have an exciting system that can carry no bags at all, or many at the same time. The kit comes with two, but you can buy more if you find your needs are higher. When you're ready to head out, just pack your bag with your camping gear, hunting gear, or other belongings, and attach it right to the cover. You can then take it down and put it back up as many times as you'd like, which makes it easy to simply grab and carry your bag once you've reached your destination.

      Install & Fitment. If you have a drill and can follow simple instructions, then it shouldn't be difficult to install this piece yourself. Once you've got the brackets in place and have hung the cover, it'll be there for you through the life of your Jeep. When you need the extra storage, you simply attach the bags to it. When you don't, you can take them down and no one would even know. It's a simple product, with a simple process - and a great limited warranty covers it all.

      Application. Fits the 2007-2018 JK Wrangler.

        Nice addition to my rig!

        Very efficient use of space for storage of incidentals, tools, IFAK, etc., in an area that is usually not easily used. Fits reasonably well, but take your time installing it to make sure the cover is fully flat against the tailgate.

        Nice quality!

        Very happy with this cover, easy to install (if you don't mind drilling), and has plenty of space for more stuff. Nice way to get tools and recovery equipment off of the main trunk space

        UV stable

        After receiving the Tailgate Cover in Coyote tan I let it sit in the sun next to the box it came in and the only thing that faded was the box! I watched the Video on You Tube about the product and it was obviously discolored almost Red in color I was very ready to return it if it happened to my Tailgate Cover and was happy when it did not happen! Buy it and enjoy it!!

        Great solution for rear organized storage

        Great product, built with quality. Sturdy. Since my 2014 JK has a hinge mounted to the rear door I suspect the hinge is on many years and therefore the cover should accommodate the hinge with a cutout or at least pre-drilled holes for installation. There is room for maybe one additional small bag to attach. Make sure you run all the wires through the rear door wire trough (barake light, CB antenna cable, etc..) before you install.

        Great for Quick Access Storage

        Installation was easy. Lots of room, zippers are a little hard to use.

      nice product, my only question is does the screws loosen up after time from driving. i was looking at the other kind but i was worried about the adhesive drying up

      • After the first fewhundred miles you would want to check the screws in the Smittybilt GEAR Tailgate Cover, however, after that, you would be fine.
