Looking for a cab cover for JK when top and doors are off.

Anyone use one? Looking to offer some protection for the interior when the car is parked at work.

Looks like it is down to besttop or zuse?

Thanks for your input on what you use?

I think you can't go wrong with best top! Don't have one myself but I would like to get one since I don't have a garage that the Jeep could fit into!

I got the smittybuilt cab cover cuz it was so cheap and I read several good reviews. It has actually worked great for two summers. I just wish it would fold up smaller.

i tried that once... had to get a door repainted when the tarp ripped and the bungee cord gouged my door.

i bought the best top trail cover right after that

Used the Bestop Trail Cover on my TJ and loved it... That being said, I bought a cover for my JK that allthingsjeep.com sells for $49 and like it just as much!

i've got the besttop version and am happy with it. Its fits extremely tight in the back with the soft top folded up. Havn't had it on in the rain yet though, don't know if it leaks at all or not.

The Bestop cover won't work with the doors on though because of the mirrors. I'm going to buy the Covercraft Weathershield Quick Cover.

The Bestop trail cover works fine with the doors on, just fold the mirrors in and no worries. Thats what I do daily when I have the hard top off and it works fine.

Yep, Bestop Trail cover works very well with doors on, or off, and rain is no problem. I have safari straps, so any pooling of water is supported by the straps, but so far, even in the rain, no problems.

I agree that the cheap Smittybuilt one is pretty good. Just put a small piece of duct taper over the two grommets if it rains. The material is surprisingly thick and it has held up well. It can be a biatch to put on in cold weather though.

I got the Bestop last year and it works well but it is heavy and doesn't fold up well. I had the Mopar for my TJ and it was much lighter. I would like it better if it would fold up enough to fit under a seat like the Mopar. It's kindof a pain to put on when it cools off at night. If i had to do it again, I would get a cheaper one.
