I have been meaning to do this so I can keep a few tools that I use all the time easy to get to.. I just never think about ordering it.

I installed mine over the weekend, used different screws though. Great product and looks realy good. I think I will end up replacing the cables that are on it to something a little more sturdy.

Do they rattle at all when you drive?

Alanjk427 is the seller, here is a link to his page: alanjk427 | eBay

I put some rubber washers between the brackets and the tailgate, there is a very little rattle from the pins that keep it folded up but with the radio on, its not noticable at all.

Here's a comparison showing the screws supplied with the panel (black head, I painted myself) and the ones I used instead.





And the layout of my 5.11 Tactical MOLLE bags.



I did not use any washers or spacers between the panel and my tailgate. I tightened the allen screws on the hinge and it makes for a better operation and it is rattle-free.

Now I just need a solution for a flat top to place on the back side when it's folded down.

...aaaahhhh, I see the Teraflex Tire Carrier in the backgound. Just got my one from the US, will be probably the first in Germany owning it. Looks well constructed.

Cheers from Germany ( okay, currently from India)

So I just drilled the holes with a 1/8 bit like the (not very wordy) instructions said, and the holes aren't big enough for the screws that are provided. Anyone else run into this? Also, for those who used different screws, which ones did you use exactly?

I picked up some hex head self tapping screws 14 x 1 instead of drilling and then putting the smaller screw in. I end up breaking 3 drill bits and stripping out some screws. With the ones I used, you dont have to drill, it will do it on its own.

Yeah, those instructions sucked. I ended up stepping up in bit size. This spring I'm going to use larger screws. For the time being, it's holding, but I want something more substantial holding it in place.

I love mine. I tapped a hole (well 4 actually) and used cap bolts to match the product.

Now to get all that Kool 5.11 Stuff. I used a miss match of old things I had laying around for now. I want the Zombie Ax on Ebay to mount on there.

x2 ... mine rattles, even after tightening the hex screws on the hinges. The rattling is from the top where the pins hold the table up ... I have to figure out someway to get it to stop, or I'll go kookoo.

Does hanging the bags w/gear on it help?

recommend you guys check with lee indy. i recalls seeing a write up somewhere, where he either rerigged the table, or used some rubber grommets from a hardware store.

this is complicated to answer but ill try.



mine doesnt rattle at all.
i have a tarp and a cable dampner tucked in behind it
and i tied the pins threw the holes with paracord making the hole a little tighter
but what really quited it down was when i secured those keyrings with the bungie.

I wrapped a little black tape around my pins and it helped. That coupled with tightening the Allen screws eliminated any rattle I had.

I also secured my pins with paracord. They just dangle now when I pull them.
