Ouch - drilling and rattles. Two of my larger concerns. Guessing corrosion isn’t an issue with aluminum? Seems like they could’ve put something in to avoid rattles from the factory. Oh well. Undecided on something I really thought would be nice.

My Bronco is my fifth convertible. When I see someone concerned about rattles it reminds me that someone hasn’t probably owned a Wrangler, BMW or Porsche convertibles. My Wildtrak is simple a fine vehicle for what it is. Thanks for the Video Rednek, I have the table but delayed to install it when I saw the drilling steps. This helps me realize someone else has already drilled into theirs. And, in Canada!

Looks like you have a sas? If so what is the height of the table off the ground when folded down?

Thanks so much for the video. The supplied instructions leave a lot to be desired. Took me about 2.5 hours working slowly and double checking my work while watching your video. But now I could probably do another install in 20-30 minutes. In the instructions I received as well as your video I couldn't tell if the rubber tubes (the ones with the glue inside) go on the top edge or bottom. In the end I am pretty sure the top ones go on the top edge and the bottom ones (the long ones) go on the bottom edge. It's not intuitive at first but if you try it you'll see why that is probably correct. It has to do with the direction that the table mount fits through those slots in the tailgate. The rubber edging is to prevent metal on metal contact. I think it's correct feel free to prove me wrong. As far as the concerns that others have raised regarding the bolt length that is not an issue. I think any damage to the outer tailgate metal is due to the drillbit. I didn't use a stop but I've got pretty steady hands. Don't push the drill. Just be patient and let it do its thing slowly. And thanks for the tip regarding starting with a much smaller drillbit and working your way up to 7/16th. Worked like a charm.

I like those collapsible bar stools you got there. Where’d you pick those up?

A little store called Amazon! They hold like 350 lbs. Search them up. You'll find them.

I installed the same table last week. No rattle at all for me, even on these terrible OK roads. I have a 2 dr, but doubt that makes a difference. Nice write up.

Does anyone know if the table would interfere with the storage (fixed lid) when the door closes. I have ordered both (no Bronco yet).

It sorta kinda does not interfere. Sounds like you have to remove the rubber stripping off the lid in able to close the tailgate. I’m waiting to find out if there’s room for a thinner piece of rubber there, or some way to create a seal.
