JKS Manufacturing



JKS Manufacturing now offers a streamlined solution to the unsightly tailgate vent that is exposed when the factory spare tire mount is removed on 2007-2014 Jeep Wrangler JKs. Designed to mount to existing factory spare tire carrier mounting holes this new laser cut tailgate vent cover plate is an essential accessory to any JK outfitted with an aftermarket spare tire carrier. The vent cover is built from 18-gauge steel and features (9) louvers for proper ventilation on hardtop equipped Jeep vehicles. The downward facing louver design minimizes the ablity for dirt and debris to enter the tailgate while allowing sufficient airflow. The cover is designed to work with both vertical and horizontal tailgate vent openings offered on the 2007-2014 JKs and includes a laser cut JKS cutout. The panel has a durable black gloss powder coat finish and can be painted to match the vehicle’s exterior. Stainless steel mounting hardware is included along with fill plugs for both the 3rd brake light wiring and the spare tire bumper hardware for a clean appearance.

If desired the cover plate can be used in conjunction with the factory tire carrier utiizing the same mounting bolts. It can also be used in conjunction with JKS8210 license plate relocation kit for a clean solution to eliminating the bulky factory license plate mount while still allowing sufficient ventilation.
