Complete the look and get organized. Manufactured from 600 Denier Polyester and designed to match the rest of the G.E.A.R. line. 100% interchangeable PAL/Molle compatible pouches included.
one snap was broken... looks great and fits great
Found this to be a great product at a great price point. Didn't expect high grade material and figured it would be more flimsey given some reviews. But mine seems well put together and materials used in the cover are durable. Bags that come with it a cheap,but do the job. Comparables are much more expensive and some don't include the gear bags.
I love every Smittybilt MOLLE gear thing they have, i have the tailgate cover, overhead console, and premium molle grab handles and couldn't be happier with it all. The tailgate cover adds a real nice touch to any jeep. If you just need it for random things, if your a shooter (like myself), a prepper, or a die hard zombie fan and want a fast, easy, awesome looking accessory then look no further. 10/10 perfection
I recently purchased a Smittybilt product G.E.A.R. Tailgate Cover, part number (56623xx). The product I purchased was the OD Green version for my 2012 JK Unlimited Sport. The product was selected based on being one of the few products available that would cover the tailgate, look nice, and the web attachments I already own would interface with it. My satisfaction ends here! First, I will start with the screws colors that come with the product. With the options of Black, OD Green, and Flat Dark Earth, Smittybilt chooses to send bright silver screws to attach the backing to the tailgate. With subtle colors and the variety of screws available, why would Smittybilt chose to send screws that would draw attention to themselves. This completely distracts from the rest of the product and the way that it should look. Second, the grade of screws that came with the product is less than desirable. During the installation I followed the directions provided and predrilled my holes with a 7/64 bit. This did not prevent 4 of the 10 screws from breaking! A 40% failure of the very components that should hold the backing, gear bags and their contents from spilling out or falling off of the tailgate.
Gives you options for storage.
The web went on without a hitch. A few self taping screws and you are done. Total time - 20 minutes. Attractive design. Have yet to load it so I don't know how well it does with weight, but can't imagine anything less that compitent.
Works great to hold my towstrap and d-rings. Plus I can add more bags to it to hold other things too. Very versatile.
The large bag ripped very quickly - I had a couple of quarts of oil stored and the weight was too much for the bag - the smaller pouch is much better made an makes a great tool pouch
how does this attach to the tailgate?

Will this product fit in a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2-door with a sub-woofer?
Asked by Greg from Altoona, Pa on
It will but those pouches are removable and you may have to move them around to not crush them against your sub woofer.
