    Design. This Smittybilt G.E.A.R. tailgate cover is the answer to a wide number of storage solutions. It clearly adds storage space to the tailgate itself, which is rarely utilized. Designed with G.E.A.R. seat covers in mind, this cover is made from long-lasting, durable 600 denier polyester and is 100% UV stable. You can take this both on and off the road without worrying about sun damage, fading, or cracking.

    Storage Benefits. The Smittybilt cover doesn't just offer one storage solution - or even two. It's actually a system that can be as flexible as you need, and can meet a wide number of expectations. The kit itself comes with two large storage compartments, each of which can be easily removed. Jeep owners simply pack their bags, attach them to the cover for easy transport, and then take them down when they get to their destination. If those two bags aren't the size or style you need, or if you need additional bags, you can simply buy more bags and configure this storage solution anyway you like.

    Install & Fitment. All it takes to get this piece installed is a drill, a little know-how, and the ability to follow simple instructions. It begins with installing the brackets that the cover hangs on. Once it's in place, you simply hang the cover and then add the bags as you see fit. The bracket can stay up for life, though you can remove the bags and cover when not in use. Smittybilt has long been a leader in Jeep storage products, and that's certainly the case here. They also back up this product with a generous limited warranty.

    Application. Fits 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

      hard steel

      The drilling was not easy, The steel in the hatch is very hard and took quite a bit of force to finally drill the holes.

      Smittybilt Gear Tailgate Cover

      I put this in my 2012 JK Sport. Its just what I needed to gain some much needed storage space for recovery gear, first aid kit and other accessories. This stuff is as sturdy as you would hope it would be! The install was a breeze and so far its held up very well! The design is very versatile so you can easily add any Molle gear you have. Highly recommended!!

      tailgate storage

      Self drilling screws so you don't have to drill the holes 1st. Good fit, easy install, already filled the packs!

      Great Product

      Went on easy, pulled tight as I was working from the top screws to the bottom screws. Keeps small things from sliding around in the back area. I would get these again and happy with how they work. Need to get my 1st aid kit together for the small bag.

      Smittybilt does it right

      The bags are awesome looking the panel is heavy duty quality. Total install took me about 30 mins. Hardest part was lining up the panel perfectly and taping it to hold. Drilling the holes and install of the screws was a breeze. The smaller bag I use for First Aid while the larger bag I use for normal odds and ends storage.

      decent quality

      Probably a good idea to get a friend to help you stretch it out while you're putting it on or letting it lay flat for a day to get the folds out. Other than that it's not a bad item. The smaller bag doesn't mount as well as the larger bag, but if you just use it for light weight stuff, it shouldn't be an issue

      Brilliant

      Love this sheet of MOLLE, and being a veteran I already have nearly unlimited options for storage with the pouches I have from the service! Easy to install and the quality of the fabric, sewing and reinforced border is high. If your a Wrangler owner then you already know that storage space is at premium, this product and it's flexibility is what your looking for.

      Molle does more than military

      This is a handy quick to install storage system. I installed in appox. 15 minutes. I took longer because I wanted it to look like it came already installed in the vehicle. You can use the existing bags as is or search the market and replace one or both bags with some of the many other types & sizes availiable on the market today. My wife loves tha system because it keeps every thing nice & neat as well as in its place. No more loose irems or other bags rolling around in the back of the vehicle.

      Awesome bags

      These bags rock! I'm in the military and these are the same grade and style. They hold my tools and I made one my first aid bag. I get a lot of compliments on these bad boys. Get them you will not regret it. Make sure you have goodwill bits for pilot holes it will make your life easier. Took 15minutes to hang. .

      Great storage

      I installed the GEAR tailgate cover on my '07 in about 10 minutes and use it for storing my winch kit and some tools. The look is really nice but the storage is awesome! The quality of the material and construction is very nice, I just wish the smaller of the two bags was slightly bigger. Otherwise I recommend the GEAR tailgate cover as a great product.

      Looks cool

      Excellent fit once you drill the multiple holes needed. Recommend using a drill bit designed for metal specifically as general purpose drill bits break easily. Once the holes are drill the install is quick and easy. I like the stow and go ability of the bags. Very handy for storing items that you may want to take on a hike with you.

      well made & useful product

      I installed the tailgate storage cover on my 2014 JK in less than 30 minutes. Great idea and compatable with my other molle gear. Adds storage that is accessible even when vehicle is loaded.
