An easy way to cre­ate more room

Whether you have a two-door or four-door Jeep Wran­gler JK, it’s easy to run out of room when you start adding gear for the trail. We’ll ad­mit that we some­times over­pack, as we would much rather have too much than not enough when civ­i­liza­tion is miles away. Since we don’t run a tire car­rier on the back of our ’13 Wran­gler Un­lim­ited, we typ­i­cally se­cure the spare tire in the cargo area on longer trips. While lay­ing the 37-inch-tall spare flat in the back still gives us plenty of room to se­cure gear on top of it, it robs us of a clean, f lat sur­face to use on the trail.

Sure, you can al­ways im­pro­vise in a pinch, but it’s nice to have a small area on which to set tools and lunch sup­plies when you are on the go. Thank­fully, we found Bestop had a sim­ple so­lu­tion that solved our prob­lem with­out us hav­ing to re­con­fig­ure how we load our Jeep. It’s called the RoughRider Tail­gate Shelf, and it’s an easy bolt-on up­grade that brings con­ve­nience to the back of the Jeep. De­signed for the ’07 to ’18 Jeep Wran­gler, the Tail­gate Shelf is a col­lapsi­ble ta­ble that at­taches to the in­side of your JK’s tail­gate.

At­tach­ing in just a few min­utes, the RoughRider Shelf was one of the eas­i­est up­grades we’ve done to our JK. While Bestop might be known for its line of soft tops, we’re dig­ging the fact that they’ve ex­panded into prac­ti­cal up­grades such as this.
