Question & Answers

16 Answered questions

Q: Will this fit a 2021 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4Dr? will this require any body modifications or drilling to install? Answer this question

A: I can’t answer that question.  It is listed by 4WP as a Universal fit and it isn’t.  Smittybilt told me before I bought it that it would work on my ‘04 TJ.  It will work if I drill my own holes.  When I called Smittybilt to see if the bracket that mounts to the tailgate door, they said no.  The Model is intended for JK’s.
