Very quick and easy install.

Approx Install Time .50 mins. It took me .25 of a beer.

The Mopar Tailgate Table can hold up to 25lbs and is made of metal that is coated.

Tools required:

Drill
1/2” Drill Bit
10mm wrench
T-30 Torx Bit
Trim removal tool

You will be provided in the kit the following:

x4 Long screws (T-30 Torx Heads)
x2 Short screws (T-30 Torx Heads)
x1 Long Aluminum Spacer
x3 Short Aluminum Spacer
x2 Small Plastic Spacer
x4 Lock Washers
x2 Nuts

Additionally there will be:

x2 Fat Aluminum Spacers (Only used if you have the TRMS (Trail Management System) already installed.

______________________

First, layout your kit and ensure all hardware required is provided with your kit as shown below:

6555C94D-FE56-417A-B9D8-F5E21B0BA42A.jpeg


Second, open your tailgate, grab your trim removal tool and start by removing your tailgates trim piece in the bottom LEFT hand corner as shown:

5DFB4587-E30F-41E3-9B78-348BDB8A5F88.jpeg


Once the trim piece is removed, take your trim piece and lay it on a shoe box/box/step with the trim piece facing down as you will be drilling from the back side.

There are (2) factory indented spots which are your drilling points for the bottom (2) holes. The other (2) drilling points for the top are large circles with hollow studs in the middle.

Next reinstall the tailgate trim piece:

Next you will grab your x3 Short Aluminum Spacers and push them into the holes shown below:

(NOTE: They will be hard to get into the freshly drilled holes. Also, they do not go all the way in and will go in different depth for all spacers, that is normal.)

Next grab your x1 Long Aluminum Spacer and push it into the hole shown below:

AE6C083C-4CFF-4075-BA74-8F8FDE9CF8AC.jpeg


Should look like this at this point:

19E7ECAA-2A46-44ED-B8CA-58374BDCEBB5.jpeg


Next you will need the following tool and provided hardware:

T-30 Torx Bit
x4 Long Screws (T-30 Torx Heads)
x4 Lock Washers

A9F5A311-2EC9-4274-9D41-93EEAEDF0363.jpeg


Grab your frame piece (the piece that has the Jeep cut out on it) ensure that the Jeep cut out is upright and in the upper right hand corner when holding the frame up to your tailgate trim piece.

Hold the frame piece up with one hand and align it with the holes you drilled. Then begin to start threading your screws into the circled locations shown below.

Tighten screws down using your T-30 Torx Bit.

Next you will need the shelf piece and the following tool and provided hardware:

T-30 Torx Bit
10mm Wrench
x2 Short Screws
x2 Small Plastic Spacers
x2 Nuts

Shelf Piece:

5BD55ED8-0FFB-4D8F-AD10-ECF0371AAE1B.jpeg


Using the latch points hang the shelf on the frame. (It will just dangle there as the bottom is not attached yet.

F2FCF326-6A92-4544-BD9B-804723BE9157.jpeg


Grab your Small Plastic Spacer and place it in between the frame piece and shelf piece and push your small screw inboard and thread your nut until finger tight. Do the same for the other side and tighten down (NOT GERMAN TIGHT). As shown below:

Attach your two tethers on the left and right side and your all done!!

;)There needs to be a phenomenon sir that describes the process by which the longer the project takes in beers, the longer the project takes--because judgement from consumption of said beers impairs ones ability to effect said project, it takes longer, and more beers are consumed.

I think this may be a calculus limit problem.

Nice writeup!

LOL Thanks man! My thoughts exactly!

I’ll work on that metric.

I believe we should use Geometry and more specifically a Parabola to depict labor.

Parabola:
A symmetrical open plane curve formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to its side. The path of a projectile under the influence of gravity ideally follows a curve of this shape.

That being said we just replace the word “gravity” with the word “Alcohol”.

Example:

A symmetrical open plane curve formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to its side. The path of a projectile under the influence of Alcohol ideally follows a curve of this shape.

Agreed. If the inverse parabola is used:

Allow me to suggest that we track time on the "x" axis, and productivity on the "y.";)

Note: productivity below the "x" axis, i.e. where "y" is negative, is aptly referred to as counterproductivity.

It involves various ritual behaviors like kicking the DIY, attempting to use the beer bottle as a screw driver, then weapon against the DIY, screaming at the DIY, and then embracing it in a drunken stupor, apologizing to it in tears and saying, "I love you man," followed by passing out.

Yes definitely a nice touch by Mopar. Very high quality and obviously OE fitment. I would highly recommend. I’ve already used the $h!t out of it and it fits the Yeti 20’s & 30’s as an added bonus. Also, great for molle bags and decals you don’t want all over the exterior of your Jeep.

Does anyone who installed one of these, also have a cargo liner? I'm worried it would hurt the ability to shut the back door.

I have the Husky Cargo Mat in back, yes it does hit it, you just have to know to push tailgate hard to make sure it closes.....think over time, it'll lay down(or in the heat)

@Tacoman03

I don’t think that this would be any more of an issue than you’re already having with your mat. The tailgate tables frame sits higher. I can pull some measurements for you if you’d like just let me know.

the cut out circles and slats are cool...but if the primary purpose is "table" they're kind of not a good idea. I'm glad they hold the large Yeti's...but normal bottles would slip through. Obviously great for molle, etc.

Fits the 20oz Yeti as well :)
