I've purchased and have yet to install the Mopar tailgate reinforcement bracket. I've watched a few install videos and noticed that there are three threaded holes that are covered with small plugs for now. In the image attached they are circled in red. I know that the area that I circled in blue is for an aftermarket antenna, however I'm not sure what these threaded holes are for?

Are there any accessories currently on the market for this? I'm assuming that it will be for a hi-lift jack mount or a rotopax mount in the future? Any info? Thoughts?

Not aware of anything, but interested in what I can put on there. The CB bracket is on, but want more options just because. I really liked LEGO’s as a kid.

I haven't heard anything yet, either. Both the 2018 and 2019 Jeep Performance Parts catalog just state "Also provides mounting provisions for other accessories" with no other info

Still no release on the Hi Lift mount. Was told Teraflex is undecided if their version will fit the Mopar one since they are making their own version.

Question for everyone here, I am not looking to put one of these reinforcements on my Jeep at this time. I am looking to make my own CB radio mount that I want to use the hinge bolts to secure. Thinking probably 1/8" plate steel to my my mount since it will be for a 102" whip on a ball mount. How long are the stock hinge bolts? If I need longer bolts, is there a good place to get them without having to buy one of these kits?

Hate to necromance an old thread but does anyone know the thread of those additional points? I am going to put in two eye bolts and on the bottom one put a quick disconnect for a safety flag. My CB stolen the cool mount already. :)
