    Cool but limited

    I got this set up to hold some tow straps and shackles that's about all I had room for and the weight of just a couple shackles was enough to pop the stitching on the Molle. I had a friends mom stitch them up with her industrial machinery. Now I am very pleased. Just need to find some more pouches and accessories. Would buy again and have them stitched right away

    Efficient use of storage space

    The instructions for installation are very easy to follow, although to be honest, if you can't install this without instructions, you probably shouldn't be wrenching on your Jeep or any other vehicle for that matter. There has to be a better way to attach the bags to the backing- that's a LOT of pulling through the myriad of straps! It does DEFINITELY encroach on space behind the rear seat of a TJ, but I was able to gain valuable storage space in my glove box and console (especially with the factory subwoofer)! Overall, a well-made product and adds convenient small-item storage without having it rattle all over the back of the Jeep. One recommendation- put some cardboard or plastic around the edge of the larger bag for support, or it will hang and just look bad.

    Smittybuilt G.E.A.R. Tailgate Cover.

    I am very pleased, it stores my first aid kit, trail mix, flash light, and, several other items that would otherwise just float around in the jeep.

    Fast and easy to install

    The tailgate cover was shipped and delivered very fast and was very well packaged. The product came with instruction and all mounting equipment. Very easy to install by yourself but would be easier with second person because I had problems getting product tight with no wrinkles. That's why I have the product four stars instead of five because it seemed no matter how tight I made the cover I would always have a wrinkle somewhere. Only took me an hour to install, and it looked and functioned just like its suppose to. Only thing that would make the product better would be adding addition straps so I can mount different items on the cover. Other than that great product would buy again.

    It's nice but....

    Nice material and built nicely however the panel would not lay flat on the rear door and there are gaps on the top and bottom of the panel

    Excellent product!

    The two bags are perfect for straps, flashlight etc. The screws provided are not the greatest, so you might want to pick up some SS ones. Other than that it's a very well made product.
