Cab cover/Rain cover for when the soft top is folded back.

What does everyone recommend to use as a overnight cover for when there's a chance of rain? I want something that will fit over the cab and back when the soft top is folded up in the back. Thanks for any help!

Full cabin cover. Some have door flaps. I think Bestop makes one.

I bought mine used on eBay for $30. It doesn't have door flaps but still does the job when I have the doors off

It has a stap that tightens to the bottom of the frame. And straps that would go around your mirrors and your tail lights to keep from blowing off

Bestop 81037-09 - Bestop® All Weather Trail Cover for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

I love my bestop trail cover. I have had the top and doors off since last Monday. I put the cover on when I get to work to keep birds out and during the night. If I was going to buy a replacement for this one it would definetly be another Bestop Trail Cover.

The Bestop Trail Cover is definitely the way to go.

Bestop is solid. But check for puddles in the top before removing or you'll end up with a really wet Jeep. Learned that the hard way today.

It will work only with the soft top folded or removed. I addition to the straps on the sides, there are plastic clips that lock into the channel like the rear snd side windows.

Yes. I do it all the time on my 2-door. And from your screen name, I'm guessing you too have a 2-door.

Yes but you'll need to fold in the mirrors.
