Safari Straps Anyone?

Hey Guys, while im waiting to install the exhaust and CAI this weekend, im thinking summer's coming. I like the safari strap look, if anyone has seen them. Tits the box shape woven straps. I like the big thick ones. Does anyone have them? Love them?

I've got em...won't put em on till Spring, though. Hatch and Maral (company owners) pretty much rock. I had a question about whether or not they'd fit with an aftermarket soft top I was looking to buy, e-mailed them, and Maral answered my question on a Saturday night, then followed up with some extra info a couple days later.

Just for the record: my inspiration was daggo's rig.

Great Company, nice people to deal with and a great product. Keeps people out and the dogs in. It's not often when you deal directly with the owners.

That's one good-looking Jeep, IMO.

Very happy with the safari Straps...makes it nice to load gear in the rear tub area when you travel topless and don't need to worry so much with the gear blowing out!

I bought my entire top cheaper then some of these. A 2dr side wrap shouldn't cost more then a $100.

You get what you pay for. Safari Straps are high quality and don't fade. Customer service is outstanding.

i had made a set of safari straps for my YJ and loved them(still have em but wont fit on the jk-for sale). After spending a couple of hours making them, i know why they are so expensive. The work that goes into making them is tedious and exhausting.

They are great though, i drag along 2 pitbulls 75# and 60# and even when they want to get out, the safari straps were awsome at keeping them in.

I am happy with mine also. I bought the ones with the wider netting. My English Setter can get lots of air when we drive and I don't have to worry about her jumping out of the Jeep.

Question: Do these straps make extra noise or whistle at highway speeds ?
I love the way they look !

A hidden benefit is when you have your dog(s) in the Jeep with the top up. It keeps their wet noses from messing up the inside of your vinyl windows.
