Trail Cover

I am looking for a "Trail Cover" to use when softtop is off. I've searched on line and there are numerous available. Prices range from $40 to about $150. I don't mind paying a premium price for a premium product, but it seems that all of them have reviews that indicate the quality is suspect.

I want one that is waterproof if that is possible. I drive my JK to work on Monday and it stays until Thursday evening. If you have any experience with any brand, Bestop, Ridge Runner, etc please comment.

I have the Bestop. But it is designed to be used with the top AND doors off. It doesn't fit real good when the doors are on.

It is good quality, very durable. A bit heavy (makes it a bit of a PITA to put on the 4dr). Waterproof as far as I can tell.

I had a Jeep one(Mopar) for my TJ that stayed on most of the summer. The only problem with them is if it rains, the part over the front seats pools and then water seeps thru. I bought some flexible tent poles to arch accross to hold it up. I also had the soft doors. I will probably buy one that covers the entire door for my JK. I think most are about the same in quality within a certain price range.

I have the bestop one and I like it. It is a little more difficult to put on with the doors on versus the doors off; but not that more difficult. I have gotten pretty good on putting in on/off by myself. I have had no leaks through the material, but the first time it rained I didn't push the water off the top and when I pulled the cover off all the water spilled inside the cab.

Thanks for the responses. I guess it will be a Bestop.
