Tailgate vent cover

So I'm replacing my old rusty tailgate and decided to put a different vent cover on the new one. I use a hard top in the winter, so I need one that's functional. I like this style, but I can only find it for the JKs. Anyone know if there is a TJ vent cover with covered vents similar to this one?

Find a local hot rod shop or sheet metal shop with the capability to do louvers and have one made. Just trace your existing cover onto sheet stock and add louvers.

Does it need to be new? If just need to be better, then I would shop for a good used one. Try Daveys Jeeps.


We have several Jeep clubs and someone has the part and usually free.

I have a couple of the stock plastic ones laying around, but I think my old tailgate rusted because it got water inside it through the vent, which is why I wanted a metal one with the louvers. All the TJ ones I can find just have open holes in them, which I'm trying to avoid. I didnt think about having one made, I'll have to talk to a couple shops around here
