Works great but the top line will sag and buckle with any weight in the bags. Had to bolt on a steel cover so that it didn't look like stretched out underwear.

Works well, and fits great on the 2014
Pretty easy to install, just make sure you pull it very tight. Pre-drill holes a bit larger that it recommends so you do not snap off the tip of the screws when using. If installing on 2014 Wrangler, just remove the plastic cover over the wiring harness as there is a channel along the door that the wires will stay in and then you will not have the bum of the plastic cover to worry about.
I was able to use the screws that came with the product although they are pretty cheap and can break easily.

Great storage option.
Installed on my 2014 JK after having great results from the seat storage in my 96 XJ. The only part that was a little unsettling was that you have to drill holes in the tailgate to mount the "backing" that the bags attach to. It's not tough but drilling holes in a jeep before I made the first payment wasn't what I planned on. The good thing though is that it mounts perfectly and since it's screwed into the tailgate it ain't going anywhere!

I like it!!
I use it for my first aid kit and car supplies(jumper cables, gloves, ect). I like the ease of access, and it looks great too. Comes with the 2 bags, but you can easily buy more bags from military supply stores or online.

Works good to store my fuses etc.. and first aid gear. Also use it for my shooting range gear ie. clips, ammo, glasses etc.

Mounted mine on a tuffy security deck - great product.

Gear Tailgate Cover
The bags cannot hold heavy items such as D-ring and tow strap without sagging quite a bit. The bags are best suited for light items. I have growing concerns regarding the loose stitching on the bags as well. Good idea for some extra storage of light items such as first aid kit.
Would reccomend to friend with above info included.

Very strong product. was able to empty my toolbox and spread approx 40 lbs of tools between the 2 bags.

A must have
The only bad thing I can say is that there is limited placement because if you try and play ouch too low, it gets in the way of closing the tail gate.

Its very functional and looks great. I can now store all my extra gear like radio's pull straps etc.
