Rear storage cover

I have an 05 wk...I ordered a storage cover for the rear but it does not stay close. Im I missing something?

The part that clicks in seems okay but when I unroll to cover the area it does not hook to anything.

Does someone have a picture of it closed?

Is there a difference in years?

Thanks

Big-O

Re: Rear storage cover

There are recesses or holes molded into the side of the cargo area that the cover slides into towards the rear of the liftgate.

Re: Rear storage cover

Yeah i saw those and the like barely reach. I can make it hold but any little movemnt will make it retract. Seems like the little rubber boots are too short to fully get into the hole.

Re: Rear storage cover

yes exactly, but those little rubber boots at the end of the cover dont reach into the recess on the side of the wall. I see how they are sopposed to work they just dont. Some one out there have the same problem?

Re: Rear storage cover

ok i did it.

number one goes to number 2. the yellow square show where the little black rubber boot ends up, not in the recess.

They get pushed on too far sometimes. Try sliding them further out on the rod.

The overlap (between body slot and the black piece) is not very much. Same situation exisited on my '97, '00, '03 GC's also. Guess I'm just used to it by now......... "It's a Jeep thing....."
