Had a little time yesterday and so I decided to install a hand-me-down EVO Trail Table on Rubicat yesterday. Thanks to EVO MFG, it also now has the updated knob screw to hold it in place when closed. Here are a few pics of what it looks like installed.

While the EVO Trail Table can be installed up or down, I chose to install it in the down position. This is what it looks like opened up...

Cool!

That's been on my list for a while. Any interference with the new tuffy security deck?

Very cool add-on for RubiCat! You know this particular EVO mfg. item was the very first thing I wanted to buy from Off Road Evolution almost four years ago, still haven't bought it yet :idontknow: I guess I need to put my tailgate back on for starters.

That would help. :)

I've always loved this table. On my next Jeep I will nix the tailgate storage and go with this table. It's the perfect compliment (place to rest my frosty beverage) to my hammock mod.

Are you going to cut the plastic trim piece and re-install? Or, simply leave it as-is? Nemo will have one of these at some point :)

it really is nice to have and we use it all the time on the trail for eating off of or just holding my tool bag while i'm working on things.

Cool. I may need to get one of these real soon. Still working on Laura for the coilovers. Trying to take advantage of the no tax deal. :)

I think i do remember a few EVO products on your rig even if you haven't bought the table yet. :-)

Greg are you selling your tire carrier?

Dave are you just wanting to do the front coils or are you hoping to do the evolever rear as well?

Thinking about the full bolt-on kit like Rubicat. Maybe get the front now and take advantage of the special offer. Save a little more and get the rears later. Why do you ask? Do you have some front coilovers you want to unload?

Are those tables universal? And if not does EVO make them for a YJ?

Chris, there is a guy locally in my area who has first dibs on it. The only thing he needs to do is replace the female and male acme threaded T-bar screw portion that bolts the tire to the carrier. In a hazy, sleepy, fog I had a very early morning (4am) incident in the Phoenix airport parking garage, I backed into a non movable concrete pillar. It caught the edge of my spare just enough to bend the threaded T-bar. The rest of the carrier, unscathed!

If you where going to the Evolever I'm upgrading to the dtd this fall and could give you my evolever bracket in October when I'm down To get the dtd installed. I'll be keeping my coils though.

Other than going tailgate-less, using my rear cargo area and Poison Spyder Customs tire strap........not much ;)

getting ready to order one, looked at other trail tables, and this is probably the best one on the market. i looked at the vector, rse little one, some 300 dollar overland trailgater one with a cutting board, skipped the teraflex one, figured it would fall apart. not too many threads on the evo one. i like the bottle opener and hooks to hang stuff. saw a picture of a guy standing on one, doubt any other table could compare. now are these attached with nutserts?
also like sharkeys hammock.
