Obvious places for storage in a Wrangler are usually filled with gear, so you have to be creative to find more. Lucky for you "creative" perfectly describes the folks at Bestop. They looked at a Wrangler and realized there was plenty of space, if you could figure out how to use it. The Tailgate Rack Bracket and Universal Rack Tray (sold separately) is one of the ideas they came up with. The brackets attach to the tailgate and support the tray over the spare tire, creating up to 75 lbs. of additional carrying capacity and making productive use of what was once wasted space.

The sturdy 6061 T6 aviation grade aluminum brackets are attached to the tailgate with the included hardware. Installation of the brackets requires drilling on 2003 and newer models. The Tailgate Rack Bracket comes with detailed, illustrated instructions. It can be used at the same time with Bestop's Cargo Rack Bracket Kit and Overhead Storage Rack. The bracket is covered by a limited 1-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Bestop® has its origins in Boulder, Colorado in the early 1950s, where founder Thomas Bradley first began manufacturing soft tops for Jeeps during slow periods at his auto upholstery shop. From such humble beginnings Bestop has grown to become the world's largest soft top maker, producing almost 200,000 tops each year, as well as a factory original supplier of soft tops to Chrysler, Suzuki, Isuzu, GM, and Toyota. In fact, Bestop has been the original equipment manufacturer of all Jeep soft tops since 1986. Along with soft tops Bestop is a leading provider of Jeep and truck accessories like bumpers for rock crawling enthusiasts, electrically powered running boards, retractable bed steps, seats, floor liners, and vehicle storage and cargo carrying accessories. Bestop combines the expertise that comes from almost 60 years' experience with cutting edge and innovative design and engineering, and manufacturing that meets or exceeds OEM quality standards, to create the finest Jeep and truck accessories available.

Any implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose created hereby are limited in duration to the same duration as the express written warranty. The company shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damage, including, without limitation, damages resulting from the use of the product on repainted surfaces (non-factory original paint) and fading and paint coloration differences resulting from the product’s shielding portions of surfaces from exposure to the sun and elements while other adjacent surfaces remain completely exposed.
