I had a Porsche tech (friend) come over and install this thing and his comment was, “who ever designed this is a professional a**hole.” ;)

We had to order a second package of hardware to affix it to the door because the first fasteners failed. A bit of a nightmare but good to go now.

with the install issues you had with this Ford table, I will need to order an aftermarket.

Do you have a link to other options by chance? I really wanted this table but everyone seems to hate it for one reason or another.

The main issue I have seen sine people started posting about installs, is drilling too far and dimpling the outer skin on the door. And not just DIY installs. Dealership installs also.

That is why I have been waiting to install it. I have had the table since the end of November but I am trying to find someone that I know won't dimple the door

I can’t imagine someone drilling all the way through the door but the guy that did mine works on cars for a living and had choice words for the install! Now that it is hung it’s perfect and can hold up to 25lbs. I just wanted a cooking space and when not in use you can attach stuff to the grate as well.

I think as the bit breaks through the inner shell, and you are putting any kind of pressure, it taps into the outer shell. Someone posted the other day that their dealership did this on the install. Off to the paint shop!

Rockslide Engineering I think has the best table and defiantly the best value at $275 compared to Fords $310

Thanks! This actually looks more functional too with the extra work space.

The kit has a drill bit with a depth setter. Slide it over the bit and tighten down with the allen set. Then there is no chance to drill through. Biggest issue is to make sure holes are centered. Any application of pressure slightly at an angle will cause the rivnuts to strip as they are very cheap. In my opinion I would use a good rivnut rather than the cheap type.

Best table is Goose Gear…hands down (regardless of what that drinking guy keeps pimping). Pricy but worth it in terms of reliability and functionality.

That is helpful advice…hopefully it will prevent some problems for other people installing these little bad boys!

It is important to me to see that Bronco or Ford stamp. I ordered my table from Ford and had My Dealer install it. Came out perfect.

LOVE it.

I ordered Fords with 15% Ford15 coupon. After seeing how FORD did not see the Jeep pre installed nut tailgate fastners I quit! Got refund! Fords engineers goof here big time. Drilling a hole in an unsupported aluminum sheet is looking for trouble. As the Porsche , and I have 911S tech said axx hxxxx. Why didnt Ford look at the Jeep pre fastner system. Four simple drilled holes 1/2" in a plastic panel is all it takes.

And the Ford only hold 25lbs and no protection for any stove flareups.

Ill wait until one of the other fabricators figurer it out without drilling holes.

I did a review awhile ago after installing mine. I agree the bronco should have been accessory ready for this with holes already in place. The table has been great otherwise, Here's the review:

One of my rivnuts appears as tho it has already popped out a bit. Read that they are pretty trash and was going to get replacement rivnuts for it. Does anyone happen to know the right size/ thread of the factory rivnuts?
