Best cargo net top?!

Looking for a cargo net top that's nice but affordable! Not trying to drop more than 3 bills

Look at Motion-Tek, Safari Straps or Dirty Dog. They all hook to the roll cage and will actually keep stuff in if you flop. The vinyl ones like Smittybilt hook along the tub like a soft top and probably wouldn't hold anything in if it came down to it.

Safari needs the tailgate bar from the soft top...not sure if you HAVE to. Don't know if that means the soft top needs to be removed completely?

Dirty Dog looks like a pretty easy install and you can keep it under your soft top.

I'm leaning DD myself (just the rear) but need to check out Motion-Tek too. People seem to love Safari's as well.

Im going with ...........Jeep Cargo Nets and Dog/Pet Barrier Nets - Aspen Manufacturing makes the best Jeep Cargo Net and Dog Barrier Net available.

I plan on getting the (wrap around) for my 2dr...which will cover the 2 side window and rear..i plan on running a full spidershade..so the top will already be covered.

These come in different colors and can be ran underneath the top too.

I have a Motion-Tek, but it's on a TJ Unlimited. There is no tailgate bar used and no drilling. I think on a JK you need to drill a few small holes, but can't advise how daunting it is. I installed mine in the garage with the soft top still on, from the inside. Very simple to do. All tops will work with this one installed and left on.

Safari or Dirty Dog per above. The Smitty will fall apart. My Safari's still look utterly brand new (2 years old) and are very clean looking. Whereas the D.D.s have all the grommets. However I do like the quick release buckles on the DD.
I have a Spider Shade on top; Safari Straps on the side for pooch exit protection.

Do you have any pics of the DD with the Spiderwebshade? I am looking for a similar setup to keep my dog in the jeep

Thanks for the pics. How is the quality of your straps?

I bought the rear barrier netting from Jeep Cargo Nets and it isn't too bad for the price. I didn't like the way they used thin Velcro straps to connect to the top of the rear roll bar since I'm using it as a barrier to keep any items in the back from flying into the passenger compartment in a collision. I'm using additional cargo straps to hold the netting in place across the roll bar.

There are better netting companies out there but Jeep Cargo Nets is not low end netting either. Customer service was very good when I needed to use them once too.
