verax Took the advice from another thread to get self tapping stainless steel screws. Did that, and no problems.

Thanks! I was definitely planning on having to drill it out, that worked, with some effort.

Hopefully that doesn't happen again!

verax tried my install on Sunday, and now have a problem. The head of the screw came off, and I'm left with the rest stuck in the tailgate. I guess I'm going to have to drill it out or something. Any thoughts on removal, or once I get it out, how to prevent this for my next go-round?

houstonpdlt Great, now that I have the 4 holes for mine, and the 3 I screwed up on. But there hidden and nobody bue me knows, well and now all of ya'll. But im still happy with it. Also, my side pannels dont move at all, the stock bolt holds them plenty tight.

Yes, There is a welded piece of square stock that a rod (hinge) runs through. The top is secures pins that slide into a similar piece.

For those of you who do not like to drill holes...a little bird tells me that there will be a "no drill" MOLLE panel/ folding tray on the market in the not so distant future.

Thanks for the pics. It looks like he's stayed with the newer design. The older had two smaller brackets on the top. Probably the same amount of space, but things stuffed back there were easier to access from the top.

Bonecollector These are some excellent ideas. I'm pretty good at working with metal, I am going to see how they come out using 1/8 or 3/16 Aluminum plate. Maybe do a jewel finish on the parts for looks, they wont need paint. I may consider making the side "pockets" come out about four inches (nearly flush with the wheel well) to allow tool rolls and things like that to fit in there. It's mostly wasted space anyway.

My problem is I try to carry too dang many tools, need to cull them out some..A handy storage system is just going to feed my need to carry half a work shop in the back. oh well..

Lots of great ideas and information around here, thank you all again!

I added shrink tubing over the take down pins & that has helped with any rattling.

houstonpdlt Ok. Wasn't done with the tailgate. Added 2 12v outlets.

Any pics of the top of the rear tire well attachment? If you read into the thread, he changed designs, and many like the old design better as far as the mounting brackets.

wigginbalz After the 2.5" AEV lift with stock 32" wheels/tires. Thanks to all in this forum for there expertise especially kjeeper and espi.

sorry wrong thread

dirtymoney The side ones are pretty cool, but that is where my head and feet go when I sleep in the back seat.

HAFICON So I am talking to a local jeep Fab shop and they are going to build a set of these just wondering if there would be an interest in them. I am not tiring to sell them as they do not even exist yet but basically they would look like this. But different.. The one for the rear passenger side seat would conform to the shape of the seat not just a straight down piece this would allow for a lot more storage/attachment options..

Rdmcclosk: I used your photo as I have not been able to find a clear shot of these two installed, looks great hope you do not mind.

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

vinnydags Just ordered mine today with "Wrangler" as the text.

Can wait for the install!

cheap4tw 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 the panels getting in the way and preventing you from folding the top all the way down affects the 2dr.

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).
