Cover for my Wrangler

Just bought my first jeep last weekend, a soft top JT Rubicon 2006, stone stock. This will be my fun second vehicle, so it will be in my driveway most of the time. Question; Should I purchase just a cab cover for my ride, or a whole vehicle cover? If I get the whole vehicle cover, then I want one that fits well and is not just a big bag with a string. Any suggestions for either?

I use the Bestop trail cover once the soft top comes off for summer. The only two drawbacks are you can't use it with the soft top because the rear clips clip to the same channel as the soft top. The second is they didn't take into consideration rock sliders or other accessories. The clips at the bottoms of the dsoor flaps have nothing to clip to with rock sliders. I had to make up two cords that I run under the Jeep to hold them down.

So it's a great cover with the top off but probably not what you're looking for.

I like the look of the Trail Cover, but will it work whether the soft cover is on, or off?

By the way, this is my "new" baby!

Nice. I likes Reds.

The trail cover won't fit over the soft top.

And it's a little hard to drive with it on.....

I too have a trail cover, its great to have in the summer just in case a rain storm pops up, but no, you can't drive with it on, and its not a complete cover.
but, it works well for my purpose. Good luck with your decision.

Okay, it looks like if I get just the cab cover, my top has to be down. If my top and frame is folded back. That sounds good too, because it's a major pain to uncover in the morning before work.

Hey, thanks guys for all your input.

My cover works with safari top on or no top at all. The tops fit snugly enough that there is no room if running the soft top as well.

Covercraft Noah Cover is superb. Pricey at $214 from Quadratec but I keep it covered on the driveway after I detail it to keep it nice or during the week when I use my daily driver.
By the way, that is one nice red jeep. Reminds me of my 1984 Laredo I had when I lived in Colorado. It was a great Jeep and I always liked Red Jeeps.
