Definitely not the most expensive, probably the cheapest($65), but it's the best for me, because of how much crap it can hold this entire time without squeaking or breaking. https://amzn.to/3i4sEQ5

Went with this one. Solid, doesn't rattle, US made. It is steel, so slightly heavier than some of the basic/cheaper/aluminum tables. I like that it doesn't use cables for support. I'll probably attach a cutting to the bottom side with rare earth magnets. But we'll see. I'm on the "don't block the air vents" side of the fence. Happy so far.

I went back and forth trying to decide between the GooseGear and Outback table - which has an overwhelming number of excellent reviews online so I think it's definitely a safe bet.

In the end, however, I went for the GooseGear and am loving it so far. It is more expensive, but the build quality is very nice, mounting is rock solid and the hinge system is flawless - not a single bit of wiggle and firm locking/unlocking mechanism.

Something I haven't seen mentioned in these table threads: do these all work with the Trail Rail system? I have one and am wondering if it needs to be removed for the tables to fit. I know the Mopar one is compatible, but thinking about the others instead.

I think that most of them are not compatible. They would need the large rectangular cut-out for the Trail Rail panel.

Perhaps some may be able to be retrofitted with the panel if here is enough clearance when the table is closed. The storage box ones probably could.

I removed my rear Trail Rail for my Frontrunner table.

+1 for Outback Adventure. It's sturdy, quiet, easy to clean and the lower pullout nearly doubles your work space. I recently had to replace my JL and therefore my accessories moved to the new vehicle. Pulling the plastic blind nuts out was difficult and I messed many of them up. I contacted Outback and they mailed me a new set of hardware. Great product and customer service.

How easy was it to remove the Trail Rail from tail gate? Still waiting for mine to get built; but I kind of goofed and ordered Trail Rail without realizing the potential conflict.

Super easy. I think it was only two bare sockethead bolts.

You still get the rails in the bed and the movable mounts.

Look into the organiser bar, which seems to be the only additional accessory so far. It's a horizontal fence that you can move around to corral your groceries/junk. I find mine to be extremely useful.

Dang. Thanks for the reply. Guess I might need to remove mine too, lol. Oh well.

Looks legit but seems to completely cover the air pressure vents.. no issues with that?

I really like the Goose Gear table, but the higher price and the loss of cutting table length compared to the Outback may dissuade me.
