The Mopar just uses some acetal or HDPE washers there between frame and table, then it's just a bolt and nyloc nut.

But, nice! $65 is about what these should cost

Was getting ready to install my hitch receiver with the top down and didnโ€™t feel like closing it to get full access to the trunk, so I opened up the table! You really donโ€™t know the convenience of things until the situation arises and you couldnโ€™t be happier that you have a table that folds out of your tailgate lol

This was a hefty box with a solid receiver inside. I was also leaning on it pretty hard trying to open the damn security plastic to my hitch safe, before realizing itโ€™s not a real table, but it held surprisingly well.

Just attached a few molle bags with straps, shackles and first aid and the table is still holding up strong. Really can't imagine the cable breaking under such a small load.

I probably could have gotten even larger pouches since there's still room to spare, but these are the pouches I used (from left to right)

ProCase Tactical Admin Molle Pouch, Military MOLLE Pouch Horizontal Multi-Purpose Utility Gadget Gear Tool Bag for Magazine, Flashlight, Map and Other Small Tools for Outdoor Activities -Black

Tactical Molle Pouch Military Compact Utility EDC Pouches

WYNEX Tactical Admin Molle Pouch, Medical EDC EMT Utility Bag Shell Design Attachment Pouches 1000D Nylon Hiking Belt Bags Waterproof

The table measures 2ft wide and 1ft high for the usable mollee area. Using the tailgate table for storage really helped free up room under my bench seats.

Heard a little squeak a few months back and it was the table hinge. Sprayed the spot with some lube and it hasnโ€™t made a peep ever since.

Still using it all the time. I filled the left and middle pouches with easily accessible tools that I use often and the main tool bags under the rear seats. Surprised it held a 5qt jug of oil no problem, but I have pushed down on it with my body weight when trying to drill something on the table. If anything were to fail, the weakest part is probably the cable which can be easily replaced with stronger lines.
