    Hard to beat at $0.52 a sq/in compared to the others (The RS-E didn't work for us since we wanted to put a pretty big stove on it), plus the fact that it's super heavy duty AND has a bottle opener!

    Every Jeep has a built-in bottle opener - the door latch striker.
    Not as good as the ones on my Suzukis, but the Jeep's still works great.
    I really only drink from bottles at home though - cans on the trail. I don't like broken glass and all the noise of glass bottles rattling in the cooler on the trail.

    Funny story about that one. I was attempting to show my buddy(brand new jeep owner) this trick. I pulled a bottle out of his cooler and attempted to use the tailgaite striker. The entire neck of the bottle broke off in my hand...didn't even crack the seal on the lid.

    I vote this one or which ever size fits the JK. I have the MPAC rack on my tailgate which is great for storage but sometimes I wish I had a table back there. The Vector appears to be the answer to both.

    To the OP, thanks for the rundown. I like the vector since it can be used in the stowed position for attaching things, but it looks like the 28" is no longer available. I was thinking of one of those for my trailer. Whelp, maybe a vector 22" for the JK and an RSE for the trailer!

    My table doubles as a changing table for the next few months. One way to sell the purchase to the wife.

    ^^^ Nice, reminds me of those stupid Foster's (only yanks drink that crap) beer commercials.....

    say, "Man daycare" in an aussie accent. Would work better if you were manning the huggies and the little lady the camera.
    My lack of articulation is apparent in my suspension as well as my diction.

    anyone tried the molle fold down table from ebay? http://www.ebay.com/itm/jk-tailgate-...#ht_500wt_1203

    $100 seems like a pretty good deal.
