Cab cover that goes over soft top?

I have the Best Top trail cover and love it when the soft top is off. But many times, my soft top is up but the windows are out and they are just too much of a pain to put back in when I'm at work during the day if the rain is threatening.

What I'd like is a cover that goes over the soft top when it's up that would keep the rain out.

I see the Mopar cab cover goes over the soft but it has a draw string to keep it on the Jeep. I've read a lot of negative reviews of this cover so I'm leery.

Does anyone know of a quality cover that uses the lip of the bed, like the Best Top that will work with the soft top up?

I've seen them, but not heard any reviews. Google cab cover and see what you find. What you have is a trail cover. As you know, they are different. I know someone other than Mopar makes them, I just don't remember who right now.

Thanks. I just edited it to "trail cover".

BTW, when are you going to start making the steering wheel/radio cover combo?

I really like your steering wheel cover but it's only 1/2 the solution for us with the nav center.

I currently use a beach towel which is not optimum.

I haven't come up with a good method to fasten a cover over the center dash.... As soon as someone comes up with a good solution for that, I'll get right on it...

I have the Mopar cab cover.It fits snugly around the windshield and has a adjustable strap around the back that tightens down snug.I put it on last time on a windy day and had no problems with it. Quadratec matched price for me at $130. I am satisfied with it!

I got one with my MOPAR Bucks and I think it works pretty well, on and off pretty quick.

Just received this one from Quadratec today.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Made by Rampage and seems to be very well made.

I have searched high and low and it looks like the Mopar cover is the only one that will go over the soft top while it's up. It looks like a couple of you are happy with it so I'm going to order one. Thanks everyone.

According to Rampage's and Quadratec's sites, that cover requires the top to be off to use.

If you have one that goes over the soft top while it's up, please send me a link or the model number. Thanks!

Here is the product number.
Quadratec Part No: 11181.110
Under the installation notes it says the top up is recommended with this cover. And here is a pic of the cover on my Jeep with the top up.

Awesome! That one is also 1/3 the price of the Mopar cover. Thanks jwann01!

Do you think quadratec cover would work with the top down and the cargo restraint on?

Does the Rampage fit over the hardtop, too? I want a cover to carry in the Jeep in lieu of the freedom tops or having to carry the windows of the softop for overnight use mostly. The Rampage is inexpensive and would be nice for occassional use. We dont get much rain here in the summer, so that isnt a big concern.
