duster cover q's?

Looking for a duster cover for my 2 door with seats removed, no factory soft top, running a ORH top/surrounds and a bestop tail gate bar.

Any suggestions?

Read up on the bestop dusters but not sure how they would attach with the ORH surronds.

I have the duster deck cover from bestop and it rocks. It's a pain in the ass to put on when its cold but it works great for my uses once its on. I also learned the trick of using a hair dryer to heat up the top enough to make it stretchy enough to fit. It took me a ton of effort to get it on on a cold day without it. Learned my lesson right quick

How does it seal around the door surrounds? I don't have the factory surrounds!

The duster does not attach to the surrounds. It is just a cover for the cargo-rear seat area, that attaches into the channels on the side of the tub that the bottom of the rear windows normally slide into.

Are you referring to the Windjammer, ie. the back window portion? That is a seperate piece, that I believe does require the use of the surrounds.

save yourself the headache of piecing one together. Order an ORH cargot (or combo) and call it a day. Might take awhile to get there, but you'll be shittin in tall cotton when it finally arrives.

BTW, most (if not all) duster covers will leak a little, if that's a concern.

Hey Dan, Already have the 2 door ORH top, was wanting to use the ORH bikini top with a duster to keep the cargo area somewhat dry. Not all to up on buying an entire new top! Besides ORH isn't listing any 2 door tops ATM, Tim must be either behind in the orders again or he's re-designing the 2 door version.
