Got my Rain Gear cover!

Haven't seen this posted, but if there's not enough chance of rain to throw the cover on, the storage bag fits over the steering wheel ( I think it's the same material).

Those look real nice, great fit it appears.

Does it flap much as your driving down the highway?


Ok enough of that......what brand and where to buy?

The site say they cover through the '13 model year. Do they fit a '14?

Not sure why they wouldn't fit a '14. No body style changes were made...

That said, I didn't try it on my jeep and Mike's is a '13.

Mine is a 2014 yes it fits perfectly I looked around at some of the others but rain gear looked to have the best coverage around the tailgate and the velcro flaps to work with or without the mirrors and the price was lowest of the quality covers.

Fit is really nice. Lots of straps to tighten it down.

One for the hood footman loop.

One front doors, both sides.

One rear doors, both sides.

Two each corner, both sides.

Nine straps in total keeping it cinched down.

Coverage over the tailgate is REALLY good. Only issue we have on Mike's is where his spare comes up with his ACE bumper/carrier. But that's on us, because we changed, not a design fault of the maker. It's not enough to make the top leak, it's just not as smooth and pretty as it is all around the rest of the jeep.

..... Trying to determine when I would ever use this.... If I'm at home it's parked in a garage. I usually won't take it out without the top and doors if it will rain.

Do people just keep this in the jeep with a plan to pull it out if you get stuck in a suprise rainstorm?

I guess if you don't have a garage to park it in I could see using this overnight rather than putting the top and doors back on but that's not really a use case for me....

I got mine because I live in Colorado and I can go from 83 degrees and a snowstorm in the afternoon weather men are notoriously inaccurate the weather here changes quick and it'd be nice to have a backup plan other than hiding in the gas station. Speaking of which we are supposed to get some light rain yesterday ended up with snow and it's supposed to be 75 today.

Mike likes to drive his jeep to work topless and doorless. Unfortunately, they don't have covered parking there. So he carries it in his jeep so if a storm pops up, he can run outside and button it up.

Star,

How long does it take to put on and then take back off and fold up. Also, how much space does it take folded?

Looks like a great option to have around if you have to wait out an unexpected pop up storm.

I am not going to lie it's a pain to fold up nicely without a little help but it can be done and ends up the size of a small sleeping bag.

The first time you put it on its kind of a . They fold it so it is right side out and the logo is showing, which I understand since they want to show off. But once you've installed it once, you'll learn that it's much easier to install the next time if you fold it wrong side out while it's still on your jeep, so the next time you pull it out you can just put it on top and open it up. Not sure if that will make sense for you or not...

Anyway, the first time I put his on, I did it by myself and it probably took me maybe fifteen to twenty minutes, figuring out where I wanted to attach the straps and shortening/lengthening them to the right size. Once you get that all figured out, it makes future installs much quicker.

The second time I did it, after seeing how tight it fit and stayed on, I didn't even tighten the straps, I just wrapped the side straps around the ACE rails a couple of times and left them hanging. Didn't bother with the front footman loop or bumper straps. Winds were probably 5-10 and it didn't budge, even without the straps on. That's why we are so happy with the fit. Second install took maybe five minutes, if that.

Folding it by myself probably took me about ten minutes myself the first time, trying to figure out how to fold it up to open the right way for the next time. The second time it had to be folded up Mike was outside to help me, so it went much quicker, probably less than five minutes. I think it's like the soft top, the more you do it, the faster you'll get...

After the second time we decided to just quit around and cleaned out the garage so we could park BOTH jeeps inside at night and stop using our four car garage as a warehouse rather than a jeep hotel.

I definitely believe the cover is worth every penny I paid for it though. If I only had a hard top, I'd definitely want one. With my soft top I'm just as happy to leave it folded up in the back and pop it up when needed.

This will probably be added to the end of my list. For me a bikini top outranks this and I haven't got one of those yet...

I have the ace bumper/ spare tire carrier and I just ordered this cover. Does the carrier not allow the cover to be pulled down as far?

I have a Bestop cover and carry it with me all the time. I'm in Arizona to I use it more to keep the dust out than the rain. I have a spiderweb shade so I just roll it out and buckle it up. To take it off, I fold the sides up, roll it to the rear and strap it down on top of my security enclosure box.

If you put the cover on while sitting on the side of the road/highway, is there anyway to get in the jeep to use the jeep/cover as a rain shelter?

Not by design but yes you could if you didn't strap one side .

Yep Beastmaster I'm with you. One of my favourite investments for the Jeep. Water tight, and easy to install, it's made my top down, doors off season much longer because I don't have to worry about a sudden rain shower while at work. And it keeps the inside dust free while sitting out on a windy day.

Nothing to really worry about. It doesn't pull down by like an inch. Not enough to make it NOT work or anything. I wouldn't give it a second thought, really. I wish I had taken a picture of Mike's the last time it was on.

Even knowing what I do, it would NOT stop from buying another one.

Do all the doors have to be off to use this top?

I need a top, I really like this.

I have a hard top and just put on safari straps and I want to take the top off, I live in SC, we have storms all the time, and this will be great. I just don't always take the doors off, at least the back ones (JKU).

If this doesn't work with the doors off, is there one that does.

Thanks
