The Vector table folds down and has molle and tool attachment points too. That is why the flat surface is not on the outside- so it can be used as a workspace when folded down.
Actually, the link he sent you was not for the Smitty GEAR stuff. The link he sent you, titled "Fantastic storage option," is actually for a MOLLE table system made by a private seller on eBay that is EXACTLY like what Vector is now selling as their own.

I'm pretty sure the guy on eBay has been building the MOLLE Tables for much longer than Vector, but I could be wrong... or maybe he just never patented it? If not, he really should have...

Check your sway bar bolts. I had the same problem about 2 months ago.

Here's a photo after I took mine off with half of my bumper chopped. My friend is in the background also chopping my fenders. Love mod days.

you don't have the rubi sway bar disconnect... the air dam really just helps with gas mileage. i would think you're going to get more air on the engine removing the air dam... but because of that increased air flow... you're going to notice you're being heavier on the pedal to go the same speed....

but, it's a Jeep, not a prius - my gas mileage is what it is... even with the 37s

I leave mine on for the highway and take it off on the trail. Replace the plastic screws with small bolts, washers and wing nuts. Got the idea from someone here.

I threw my air dam in the dumpster the day I bought it. My temp gauge has never moved or changed. It's about 1/8 inch below half. I shouldn't say but I'm sure the damn thing is just for cosmetics. Also not 100% sure but I think the edisco is only on the Rubi? Can I get a witness?

you are correct, only the rubicon comes with the electronic sway bar disconnect.

I didn't see any pictures of the table in that link- it's all attachment plates, but thanks for the info. I think there are a couple of suppliers of this type of table. I just thought the Vector one was better. TEHO.

Well it wasnt "today" but Sunday and Monday of this week.. Smittybilt XRC MOD front bumper, 2" Rancho lift, 33" DTs, Black Rock Vipers, Dynomax Evolution exhaust, spare relocation bracket (not sure if it was needed) and not shown in these pics I also installed some UFOs on the hood to get rid of the nipples, Mopar gas cover and door sills. Oh and had the front windows tinted last week too.

Still plan to take the SPORT decals off and have the full width end caps for my front bumper. Then we will see how long I can handle the fact that it looks strange with no winch in it yet.

This was last Tuesday.. stock as the come.. except for my rear bumper which I had swapped from my 2011 I traded onto my 2013.
