Sorry to shred your silver lining but the gap cover is removed. Squadbox did my install.
I got it installed this past weekend and kept the gap cover. It's pretty snug though, but I run my seats folded down for my dogs and it shouldn't be a problem.

Yeah I was completely wrong, the gap cover is retained. I have a sleeping pad wedged between the seats and the box, I took it out and revealed the cover. I thought it was missing last time I put the pad in.

Gotta ask (Jeep newbie - 2 years)

  1. What is a gap cover? I am assuming this is to bridge the gap when seats are down? Where do you get this?
  2. I am having second thoughts on the Sqaudbox, like the concept, feel like it should be more friendly by now to install and not have issues, also the manf site is pretty... well, sparse in info. How does this compare to a Diabolical unit? Is it worth the $$?
Thanks

The two main reasons I went with the SquadBox was that it was obvious it can support weight on the top (albeit that's from pictures showing someone standing on it), and I didn't need to buy any additional parts to install. Since I only have a soft top, the Diabolical would have required purchasing the hard top mounting bolts. Yes, in the end I was short some screws, but it wasn't an issue as my garage has a lot of random parts in it.
Personally, I would have no problem ordering the SquadBox again, although I wouldn't count out the Diabolical if I had a chance to see one in person.

I have SquadBox installed for about a year and like it. Has anyone had to remove a side for tail light bulb replacement or tailgate reinforcement upgrades? Part of SquadBox needs to be removed to do this. Installation was tough, not looking forward to messing with it again.
