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.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Someone was selling one on here just the other day, it was cheap too.

Rokmen TT, Rokmen control arms, Novak NV241 cable shifter, JKS 1.25" BL + 1" MML.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

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...
