Springtail Solutions Tailgate Table

Just finished installing the Springtail Solutions Tailgate Table. Easy, straight forward install with a youtube video of the install for further reference.

Happy to say it does not rattle what so ever, holds what you need it to hold and the Molle style table enables further storage for the little things you need a long the way.

I will be adding a removable black cutting board that will be cut to size from Tap Plastics.

Nice...is it strong, sturdy enough to set a cutting board on it? Thinking about tailgating.

I've got one and have set the weight of an entire case of beer on the table without issue. This is a great purchase which has really enhanced the Jeep.

Update...

Finished installing all my Maxpedition bags and installed the cutting board. The 1/2" cutting board fit perfectly. I did not have to attach it to the springtail table. All I did was notch out where necessary and it dropped right in. Easy removal for cleaning and NO rattles!

I wasn't happy with the exposed wire on the top left so I notched out the old wire loom cover and snapped it in...

Really think Springtail should start including a template for the cutting board and wire loom...just makes the product shine a bit more...details are huge in my book...grin...

...and thanks for the kudos Simon...

Looks great! Did you email them your ideas? Maybe they will implement them.

I really like this set up but was just wondering if it will fit with the tuffy security deck enclosure? Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.

I have the table installed with the Tuffy security deck and there is no interference. Purchased another set of first aid supplies to use the smaller bag as a first aid kit, which will be nice for camping and tailgating mishaps.

I sent off a rack not too long ago to one of the forum members to address that exact question, they were going to post some good pictures.....have not heard back yet.

Nope...just my observations through emails and searching the forums for your posts and threads on your table...

After I installed the cutting board it made the table way more rigid and no more side twist as the table is made out of a thin gauge steel.

The cutting board in my opinion is a must for tailgating. You have the entire LEVEL surface to use. Without it you have all the molle straps etc...

...and thanks avcrubicon!

Is all that weight on the stock hinges? Referencing your tire/wheel, table, and bags/gear. Only asking because I have the table now and haven't mounted it yet, because I have a 35" tire on my tailgate, and am concerned about adding any more weight to my tailgate. I do have heavier duty hinges, but am still a bit worried.

The Teraflex HD tire carrier is SOLID...

To me this is the cleanest set up unless you go 40's

On YouTube there is a guy with both the tuffy deck and the springtail rack installed. Search tuffy security enclosure and you'll find it. I have a tuffy on order and my wife is buying me a spring tail table for Xmas.

Here's the video. Scroll to the end to see the springtail and tuffy combo.
http://youtu.be/OoQFY9zzfbw

I'm just gonna order the table/rack as I already have the bags from my old FJ springtail setup. Love the cutting board idea. Guess I'll be going to TAP to get one made.

I ordered these dimensions...

24 3/4" x 12 3/4" x 1/2" ...Tap Plastic online...King Starboard...

Here's the link...just type in the dimensions...

http://www.tapplastics.com/product/p..._starboard/526

Then all you will need to do is notch where the paracord connects to the table, the area where the index plungers strike the table and the areas where the shoulder bolts connect to the table backing plate.

The Starboard just drops in and fits flush with the tables front lip. See previous photos...above...

Will do for sure. My wife really wants to buy me something for the JUKR for xmas so it'll be after the holidays before I put on the springtail. That's such a solid looking upgrade, it'll be perfect for holding my jetboil stove and making a fresh cup of joe on our trips.

Another thing to add to the "list" for the Jeep.

+1 on the jet boil, had one for years and it has seen several thousand miles of motorcycle camping and will go in the Jeep for the winter months.

Finally installed my Springtail solutions table today. It has been sitting in storage for awhile, because I've been busy and work, and lazy at home.

Anyway, super easy install. Table looks awesome, and still needs to be broken in. The simple slam shut feature is sticking, but that is annotated in the instructions as having a possibility of happening.

I ordered the TAP plastics insert per the Op's advice and Im super happy with it. Took a few minutes to notch out the 4 areas, but got it to lay in with no issues.

I'm a bit worried about all the weight on my tailgate, with the table, insert, and 35" tire. I do have heavier duty hinges, but it still makes me nervous. I may make some simple brace for the tailgate to use when it is open and I'm using the table for long periods of time.
