Tailgate Bar? Without Dealer Prices?

so I'm looking for a tailgate bar and clips but want to stay away fro the dealer, is the aftermarket one-stop version junk?

Any good leads are appreciated

The BesTop one that you can get from places like Quadratrec is just as good as (if not identical to) the factory one.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

New? Sounds about right.

When I very first bought my Jeep it was hard top only. first thing I did was get a bikini top/ wind jammer/ tonneau combo for it. I got the tailgate bar, brackets, and screws from the dealership. I won't tell you what I paid because it is embarassing...
