I need a trail cover

OK.. I guess I should have learned by now to keep the top on or keep the jeep in the garage but i'm pretty slow. Sooo.. I need a trail cover. The question I have is that I need one that will work with my AEV snorkel. Any ideas? I need to cover the doors too. I saw a bestop one but i'm not sure if that will work with the snorkel. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Call me, we can see if my best top will work...but i think you may have problems with the windshield mounts. if it stops raining, I'll go take pics for you of how it covers the windshield.

Chris,

i have the besttop cover. I will probably not work stock out of the box. You may have to buy then use a seam ripper to take a portion of the top apart and sew in a bungie or clip strap of some sort. I am sure it can be sone. If you dont want to do that, you can take it to a auto trim shop and have them mod it for you. I think i paid around 180 for mine when i got it. I will have to mod mine as well once i get my snorkel in september. If you need a good trim shop i know two that do great work and reasonable prices.

There was/is a guy in one of my local clubs selling one if you wanted to try the seam rip/sew in method and not have to spend so much money up front to try. He never responded to the last inquiry in the thread though...

You may want to try a lighter cover if your going to start modifying it. The Bestop is HEAVY. It easily is 3 or 4 times heavier than the Mopar one I had for my TJ. The fit is very snug. You may want to look at the one from Rampage to work on. My $.02
