|Brad01||I love these ideas, however I fear attaching a lot of tailgate molle in case I need to sleep in the jeep, it will shorten the interior space. I have a jku and its tight already (I'm coming from a explorer, I slept in it on hiking trips often). Any advice is appreciated|

Just ordered mine today with "Wrangler" as the text.
Can wait for the install!

|Ubear7||Ordered mine Monday with custom logo and shipped out yesterday. He is quick. I too prefer the old design but I guess I'll try to make it work or something.|

Well I am game then.
If Alan decides to start selling the original design I'd order another set. I'll shoot him an e-mail to check this thread if I still have his address from when I did my last order.

The issue of them simply pivoting out of position when the bars rest on top of them affects the 4dr.
IOW, the old design would work fine on the 4dr since the top could still go all the way down, and the bars would simply rest on top of the panels. (They don't interfere with lowering the 4dr top itself).

The old design panels look like they'd have the same issue as the new ones when taking the top down.
I uninstalled my panels because I could not get the soft top to fold fully down into the bed of the Jeep as the panels would block the soft top bars from folding down fully.
Any pics of the old design with the soft top down?

|Gary04Z06||I was going to order the set this weekend, but now seeing this "new and improved" design. I'll pass. Old style was much better.|

He absolutely refused to make me a pair using the old design -- even when I offered him a bunch more money -- so I wish you the best of luck!

Again, the newer single bolt version allows them to pivot out of place at the slightest touch.
The shitty thing was that his advertisement still had the old design in the photos when I placed my order. When I first received the redesign, I went back and forth with the seller over email and he absolutely refused to send the older version instead.
It's really a shame that he completely changed the design. I wouldn't recommend the new ones to anyone!

I've had the redesigned rear panels on my 4dr for a few months now, and they just plain suck. Not only did we lose the extra storage space, they also slip and pivot all over the place if you bump them -- since they're now mounted with just one bolt.
Simple physics tells us that they'll pivot if mounted with just one bolt and not locked in place using some other means.
When I lower my soft top, the panels get knocked completely out of place and pivot like 45 degrees.
Seriously, they do look good, but they're functionally horrible.

|foxsat71||That's too bad. Why redesign, away a very useful purpose??????????|

|foxsat71||New style is horrible. Old style has more storage capability|

Let's just say I am going with plan B on using this area for storage.
If someone plans on using them for molle panels only, then they should be fine. Don't plan on making use of the space behind them though.

|sandnsaltwater||I just got my back panels and they are closed. I really wanted the open ones. Very well made. He even now offers powder coat for 4.00 more.|
|08-17-2013 12:02 PM|
Were the side panels the old design (open on top)
Or new style (closed)
|08-17-2013 11:57 AM|
Hell Yeah!.....GO GATORS!
|08-17-2013 11:46 AM|
I ordered the side panels also. Not sure if they are going to be my liking. Need time to mess around with them before I make up my mind though.
Really happy with the job he did on the tailgate for me!

|Survivalbiker||Got my GEAR Overhead Console in yesterday and got her installed with my Galaxy DX949 taking up half the space. The cb is mounted directly to the backplate for the console with slits cut for the bracket. Install of the console was easy and it comes with sleeves for the pipe clamps so it doesn't scratch the paint on the roll bar.|

|bigobear||One more thing to add to the list ...|

Another rear door table solution is the Vector Off-Road MP Table
