The replacement tailgate vent cover plates are made up of two 16 gauge aluminum plates. The custom designed JK grill image is bolted over top of a solid piece of 6061 aluminum for a unique look and contrasting images if either the inner or outer plates are painted. These two plates are spaced out on the bottom to allow air flow while replacing the factory air vent on your tailgate. The plates are a direct bolt on using existing holes in the tailgate. Black powder coating option for the outer aluminum plate is available on this part only.
This kit also includes three plastic plugs, (1) large and (2) small, to cap off the wires that use to pass through the tailgate for the 3rd brake light and the large cone shaped rubber snubbers that prevented the spare tire from vibrating when driving.
