Comes in a big evelope style package. My wife picked it up, wasn't expecting the weight and dropped it on her foot. Yup... I heard all about it. I prob shouldn't have laughed when she told me the story

I ordered some.

Plan on bedlining them and adding some sort of "side" on them to contain stuff crammed behind.

Quick questions before I order:
1. Does the tailgate install require any drilling?
2. Do the side pieces come with the hardware (bolts) for those of us who don't have a hard top?
3. Does the tailgate table rattle at all?
4. Will my wife kill me for ordering more random shit?

This. Does anyone have the specs for the bolts? I guess I'll have to hit Home Depot before mine arrive...

I received mine today, can't wait to be able to install them

You guys really need to learn a few things about shopping. You know Christmas is just around the corner, so when the wife or husband asks about packages being delivered just say it's a gift.

It's not a lie, it is a gift, just one for yourself. I buy myself a couple things each year and wrap them up with a tag saying it's from the dogs

My husband doesn't even ask about the deliveries any longer. He does get a little nervous when I ask for a ride from Xtreme Unlimited when the Jeep is being, "looked at."

What size Torx bit fits the hardtop bolts? I haven't bothered to crawl back there yet, figured someone knows at this point....

Got mine yesterday. The 2-door versions are smaller and only attach with one bolt, but should add a little much needed storage. They're a little crude up close (must be made on a plasma table, or a really old laser) and, as mentioned, the paint as supplied isn't the greatest. But a quick scuff with some Scotchbrite and a shot of some bedliner will have them good to go in no time.

I noticed that folks are able to get different model names like artic cut in. Has anyone asked if he will do a custom name?

Also, has anyone tried using small nutzerts to install these? I don't like the idea of sheet metal screws. Or is there something better than nutzerts for something like this?

He will make the table with whatever name you'd like. Hit him up on eBay and he'll respond to any inquiries quickly.

Got my name on mine. Cheesy....yes, but that's me. JKU on order will install when it arrives. The guy was super fast and good to deal with.
Bad lighting in photo.

That's not cheesy. It is the most customizable vehicle in the world. Why not make it yours and unique?

I think thats a great idea! I'm having him put the word "Rubicon" on my rear tailgate M.O.L.L.E fold down storage tray.

I just got word that both the side panels and rear tailgate rack are being shipped today. This guy should be making some serious money soon as these are a very good idea as there is nothing like it out there!

I ordered these late on a Friday. He told me they'd ship first thing the following week. I had them by Friday. I ordered the package deal that included the fold-down tailgate rack, the two racks for the top of the fender wells and opted for the rear seat "back rack"... all for a mere $150. I also ordered them "debadged", so there are no logos anywhere, just usable molle openings in their place. However, the side panels seem to just delete the bow at the top (where the jeep logo is). They already came in quite handy for a loadout of camping gear this past weekend.

For those bedlining these molle racks, what kind of bedliner are you using? If I can get an answer, I might swing by and pick some up for an evening project tonight.

Ditto.

I ordered on Thursday. He said I should have them by tomorrow. Looking forward to this little project. I think it'll provide a nice working table top for our beach trips.

I just sprayed one side of mine with Duplicolor's stuff, a can I've had around for a while. I've used it on a few things and have been impressed with it, but some say Rustoleum's is better.

I think that they're M8X30mm #40 Torx Button Head Socket screws. A "normal" ISO7380 button head socket screw will do.

Those are the ones that normally hold down the hard top and are not included with the MOLLE panels? If so, THANK YOU!!
