Best JK Cover

Spring's here, the roof and the doors are off, and I need a cover. Any recommendations on the best cover so that my Jeep won't be full of rain, snow, and bird shit after a 12 hour day in the parking lot at work? I mostly see Bestop, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience to share. If Bestop is truly the way to go, any recommendations on vendors? I just bought a new winch yesterday based on a recommendation from the site...best price I had found. Thanks in advance.

Hi Kingpin - we are a relatively new vendor to the site but I saw your post and thought I'd run a search for you.

Therefore, here ya go (free shipping - everything over $100 is)

- Smittybilt JK Unlimited Jeep Cover - $109.95 (in stock - just click "check stock" on our site)

The Smittybilt covers are inexpensive and cover the whole Jeep for better UV protection than the Jeep cab covers - though we have those too if you want more info.

Let me know if you have any questions.

That's why you have to Monstaliner it. So you can just take a hose to the inside like the rest of us and get all the bird shit off!

I used the Bestop Trail Cover all last summer, fits great, durable, easy to clean and did a good job protecting the interior even with the doors off. It fits over my ORH soft top too.

I have the bestop all weather trail cover. Works good but i had to make some bow supports out of pvc or the rain would pool up during downpours. Good thing it only pooled up and didnt leak at all. Depending on what you have for rocker protection or steps/rails it might be a pita to get the clips on. I still have my gay sahara steps and my fingers are like sausages, so it can be frustrating getting the clips on between the step and rocker. Maybe someone with sliders can chime in

I have the Bestop trail covers with the extra part for the doors. It's bulky compared to the Mopar one I had for my TJ. It doesn't fit under a seat which is where I kept the old one. I think it will hold up to a lot more than the mopar one though. If I had to do it over I would have gone for a lighter weight. I used a folding tent pole to make an arch over the front seats to keep water from pooling and then seeping in.

Another vote for Bestop Trail Cover. Mine does what I bought it to do but I can't fold it small enough to put it back in the bag.

Yet another Bestop Trail Cover vote here. I've had mine for two years now and it works great.
