First off, I'm looking into either an LJ or a TJ.

My question to all of you is how dog friendly is your jeep when hauling them from point A to point B?

I have 2 dogs an 85lb Rottweiler, a 40lb Rott/Pitt mix, and my boyfriend has a 60lb Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.

Also, I would love to see pictures of how you have your dogs set up in your rig!

I had a great dane/boxer mix and he had a hard time getting in and out by himself. but once he was in there he was fine. he also took up the entire back seat by himself. oh and he was about 65 lbs. hope this helps at all

That helps a ton. Was it an LJ?

I have an lj and 4 dogs. Usually don't take more than 2 at a time when the backseat is in. Have had both my weimers in the back without issue, 127# and 93#.

TJ and a 50lb Husky. She sits on the front seat when it's just us and I have no backseat so she just lays down in the open space in the back. When top and doors are off she stays in the back. I hook her leash to the roll bar when I have to run into the store.

as long as she has her ball shes happy.

I have a cattle dog/beagle mix and a lab/visla mix. They both fit fine in the back when I have the seats removed. Only issue is now that I've removed the carpet, its like Disney on ice back there for them.

I have a YJ and my two German Shepherd mixes (both about 100 lbs) fit in the back with the seat in. They have to sit but they don't mind they're just happy to go for a ride. One can jump in by himself and the other cannot. Hope this helps.

My dog is a Chow/Retrevier mix and he LOVES going for a ride. All I have to say is load up and he's jumped in the Jeep through the window before I get out the front door. He's also amazing at staying inside even when my Jeep is totally naked.

FYI I went to Lowes and picked up some solid insulation 2 in thick and cut it to be a good fit in the back of my LJ and then the wife made a "pillowcase" type cover for it so I can remove and wash it, this is really light weight and give them something to bear down on when turning real sharp or stopping. Made the same type setup for the backseat of my HD F150 so they can ride in the cab with the back seat folded up.

That's awesome! Thanks for the idea. Got a pic by any chance?

my dog is a fox terrier, she drives the YJ... She does great riding, depends a lot on the dog. If they like car rides, you'll be fine. Only I have to help her in sometimes. She did make the jump to my seat from the ground once...
