Jeep JK DIY Tailgate Table - 1st Attempt

Recommended Posts

Hi Kris,

I got everything ready for table accept those plastic clips. I can't find them.

Is it possible if you repost a link to amazon page for details because current one is broken.

Really want to get it done, hunting season is coming up. This table will be really huge help for me.

 

Cheers,

Vlad

 

here's a new link to those clips i used, Toyota part #90189-05012. remember you have to file or dremel them a little thinner to fit in the top row holes...

 

or you can purchase a couple sets of the Springtail Solutions clips instead. i wish i could figure out what the original application for those was so i could find them in bulk.

 

the Toyota ones are still holding solid for me, so no problems using them other than that slight extra work up front.

 

 

also realized i never posted in this thread that i ended up staining my slide-out board. i got tired of oiling it as it would dry out often with all the dust from wheeling. the stain provides a slight waterproofing effect, though i may still need to put a coat of poly on it eventually. more details in my rig's build thread...

Can you provide any specifics on the screws you used, specifically to hold the backsplash to the tailgate? I've been struggling to figure out what length / kind to get for that section.

#8 by 1/2" screws worked well to hold the backsplash to the clips that i put in the tailgate. i used black (e-coated) automotive trim screws: https://amzn.to/2TJSF8r

 

most everything else i got from boltdepot.com (though a local Ace would have it probably too), here was my original shopping list. this might not be quite accurate for the final design, but it should give you something to compare to:

 

boltdepot.com

4387 - Socket button head, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32 x 5/8". Each 8 $0.07 $0.56

4384 - Socket button head, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32 x 1/4". Each 16 $0.05 $0.80

2943 - Flat washers, Stainless steel 18-8, #8. Each 8 $0.05 $0.40

17825 - Hex jam nylon lock nuts, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32. Each 8 $0.11 $0.88

10481 - T-Nuts, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32. Each 16 $0.53 $8.48

4385 - Socket button head, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32 x 3/8". Each 16 $0.05 $0.80

4388 - Socket button head, Stainless steel 18-8, #8-32 x 3/4". Each 8 $0.08 $0.64

9877 - Sheet metal screws, Phillips flat head, Stainless steel 18-8, #6 x 1/4". Each 14 $0.07 $0.98

Total: $13.54 + $5.95 shipping (includes xtras and different lengths to check)
