Do you need a top you can drive with, or one for when it's parked? If only when parked, I highly recommend a Bestop Trail Cover.... Works with or without doors, but only with the top down.
I just checked the link, did you read the part about the install time???? "Less than an hour". Well if it's gonna take me an hour to put it on, I might as well just drive home in the rain, cause the Jeep and I would be drenched before I got the top on anyway.....
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
The Emergency Top is great for what it is. Just don't go thinking it's a cheap substitute for a "real top."
Picture yourself up on a mountain, and it starts thundering and lightening, rain coming down really hard. You can put this top on in 10 minutes or less (takes a few minutes to find the front end, just like with our covers), and drive down to that nice warm bar at the ski area. The one with the awesome Irish Coffee.
Or maybe get home from work, if you take back roads and stay below 45 MPH.
That's what it's there for. But there's a reason it's sold with two ponchos. It is waterproof fabric, but you're going to get wet around the edges.
I have no idea why install guide says it take a an hour. It's not really any harder to put on than a TrailCover.
PS: Bestop owns the Pavement Ends brand. I just mention that in case you think I'm slagging on the competition. :-)
thanks for the info , its as you said, I need something to throw in the back in a bag and if it starts raining put it on to avoid most of the wetness
Sorry geoff I didn't buy it . I decided to use a tarp
Well we might get some light rain so I figured I would finally have a chance to test out . 6x8 tarp with about 10 bungees and a PVC pipe bent upwards between the rollbars is an amazing thing. Its surprisingly tight. Tomorrow ill post pictures. Also I want to test drive it. From how tight it is I don't think ill have any issues with going 45 for short distances.
ive rocked the tarp before.. tried finding the pics but it somehow got deleted =/
broke a axle shaft at the offroad park right before i was gonna head home from the weekend.. left my spare at home like a dumb@$$.. drove home and grabbed it and my car (buddy gave me the ride on his way back, wife and i drove back in the charger) and then after it was fixed the next day it started to pour.. and i didnt bring my top because it was suppose to be nice the whole weekend i was there.. oops lol thats what i get for having to stay an extra day
