    Review & Install Video

    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 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.

            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.

            Nice Fit

            The installation was easy. I'm using the larger bag for recovery gear and the smaller bag as a first aid kit. The bags seem to hold plenty and the weight of the recovery gear doesn't seem to be a problem AT ALL. I admit that I am considering adding another screw in the center, just for my own personal need for over-engineering.

            Nice Accessory

            Construction is of high quality, but instructions don't cover all the installation issues. Installation needs to be outboard on the tailgate to clear the hinges. This is counter-intuitive when weigh to the contents should be as close to the hinges as possible. The tan version has a green tint when compared to Jeep's "Mojave Tan."

            Ita okay.

            The panel came with self taping screws. You will need a small drill for a pilot hole. The panel it self is pretty well constructed. Easy to install with a power drill. However the molle on the panel isnt that great. Ive had it on for about a month now, and i have a few items hanging from it however the molle stitching is starting to come apart and rip

            Best way to keep you things with the top down.

            Having a 2 door no can be tough when it comes to the storage department. Especially when the top and doors are out. You can't have things blowing all over the place. This handy add-on is drilled into your tailgate and screwed in. Comes with 2 molle bags that are perfect. I store my go pro in the smaller one and my first aid kit and some tools in the larger one. If you have a problem with drilling holes into your new jeep then don't bother with this. But it does add some nice style to the tail gate. Overall it's a good buy pretty good quality even though it's made in China.

            Fits perfect in the back of the truck. A bit of time consuming but in the end it looks great and have plenty of storage.

            This product is a good addition for storage.

            I chose this product because of it's ability to increase my storage capacity. The large bag is a great item for storing tow straps and flares. I wish it had two large bags but I am sure I will find something to put in the small bag. I have also purchased another large bag to attach to the great strong canvas design that attached to the rear tailgate. The material is strong and looks great. I think it is a great idea.
