no spare and how to cover the vent?
 
i want to remove my spare since i have the stock 30 on the back right now so until i get a 33 id like it off. does anyone have an idea on how to cover up that black vent thing? it makes the tailgate look bad. i like the style of the old cj ones. any ideas and pictures would be awesome!

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.

I got this from TNT customs, it covers the vent, it's American made, and I really like havin my plate in the middle.
