The simple solution is to paint it to blend in.

Do you have a softtop or hard top?

- If you have a soft top, you can close off the vent with a blank plate or more costly, replace the tailgate with a non vented.

- If you have a hard top, is it a 97-02 with vents? Then you can eleminate the tailgate vent.

- If you have a 03-06 hard top with no vents, you still may close off the vent. There are plenty of people with 97-02 (no taigate vent) have put on 03-06 hard tops (no hard top vents) The doors will be harder to close and the HVAC mauy not work as well.
