Rain cover?

Hey guys,

I'm interested in getting some kind of emergency top. Right now I just have a hard top and want to run doorless and with the freedom panels off. I need something easily stored in the back of my 2 door that will cover the front panel area as well as the doors and can be put on quickly. Any advice?

It seems like rain gear covers (the "hard top on" version) makes the only option that covers all of that.

I'm willing to try DIY options as well.

neighbor has a real nice Jeep one that covers the windshield, doors and tops, has straps for each area to. Looks like it fits real nice and tight.

Been meaning to grab one as I run with just the bikini on all summer

Rugged ridge has some too that look nice

You have options - do you want a cover for when parked or emergency top that will keep you dry(ish) when driving?

Rain cover?

I have the Rain gear for both top and top off. The only issue with it, if topless you need to support the center from sagging or water will seep in. I usually throw the top over without the windows or doors on. Stays dry as a bone.Name:  ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1437415070.035871.jpg

I just ordered the Rain gear top today. I ordered the top off version. I run with my Freedom panels only and full doors sometimes. Hopefully it fits this scenario and I don't see why it wouldn't. I'm thinking any extra room needed for the top on version would be at the back top? I'll report back. Kjeeper - nice rig and that top fits good!

There is a lot of slack with my top off. I cAn pull it over the rear tail lights.
Thanks and hope it works for you.

I also have the Rain gear and have no problems using it. It is a good investment.

Cover here and installed. 2013 W/Freedom top and hard doors installed. Rain Gear for no tops fits nice. Will make up one of the PVC bows for heavy rain just in case. The quality is next to none and way better than my boat cover next to it. This thing is awesome but if I had to say one thing negative... Flip the "Made in the USA" tag 180 degrees so the US Flag is upright on the windshield when you walk by. Minor I know... That's how sweet this thing is on my first impression 😁
