carrying your dog in your Jeep!

I've got a 2008 4-door JK; trying to rig something to keep the dog (year old yellow lab) in the back; he likes to jump over the back seat.... tried something at the local pet store - didn't work. any ideas?!

I'm not sure if the JKs have them or not, but I have footmen's loops in the back of my unlimited TJ. I have a cable run between them and I attach my dog to the cable on a short leash. This way she can not jump into the back seat or get too close to the edge when I have the top off. I must admit though that she is usually in the front seat beside me.

I keep my dog on this "Easy Rider Harness" and installed a small "clip on" chain on the child restraint anchor in the rear seats.. He cannot jump or fall off the bench

I got one for my 80lb Doberman from Best Pet Bicycle Baskets, Dog Life Vests, Pet Seat Covers, Dog Trailers, Dog Beds, Dog Car Seats It was around $22.00 for her size. It is a Harness with an adjustable Lanyard that goes into your seat belt connector, so it can be used anywhere and without the rear seat

For a quick fix, attach your dog's collar to any convenient hold down with a piece of 1" tubular nylon (available from REI) and a carbiner or two. We did that before we got a Smittybilt CRES - similar to Daggo66's Safari Straps. The dogs love the freedom and openness - and no way are they getting out.

I've used an actual dog devider that I modified to fit my Jeep. Think it came from a Subaru or something. You can just see it in my avatar. I don't have access to pics atm.

I went to the fabric store and bought a nylon strap, buckle and a spring clip from Home Depot. Wrapped it around the rear headrest posts. This allows my dog to move left to right in the rear seat using his existing leash and just short enough that he cannot go over the edge. (not that he would but it makes the wife nervous).
