Soft Top Cover (Boot)

Hello Fellow Jeepers,

I was interested to see how many of you actually boot up your soft top when it's down.

Have you notices and differences?

what model if so do you use?

Thanks

I would like to know as well. Was looking at the Smittybilt for 50 bux. Any thoughts? Do these actually fit like they look in the picture.

I have the rugged ridge storage boot for my 2010 2 door. It fits really tight and looks better than just having the soft top folded up in the back. I also have the window roll and the two together look good. I keep my stock clear windows in the roll and hang my tinted windows up in the house. But the fit for the storage boot is awesome. I put the boot on when the top will be down for more than an hour or two. Takes about 5 extra minutes to put on after some practice. Completes the look IMO.

I have the smittybuilt, used it a couple times but pretty tight and a pain to put on. I guess if I could leave the top down for extended periods I might use it. All I use it for now is to wrap the top for winter storage.

A few pics of mine installed just for comparison to the website pictures:

Just the Rugged Ridge soft top storage boot:







And with the window roll on top:







It also, as you can see in the last pic, makes it so that you can still use your "trunk". It keeps the top contained and it doesn't take up the valuable storage space in the 2 door models.

does anyone know if there is enough space to leave the back window rolled up in the top and still fit the boot over?

Regarding the boot, are the 4 pieces that hang down for popping off the boot? I can't figure out what they do besides hang down and look horrible. I like the boot look and I also have the clover bag. Looks fairly nice on top of the boot.

I'm in agreement that they look bad. I do believe they're just a grab spot to pull down on to seat the belt line flaps for removal or installation. I install mine without even using the straps so I think I'll just cut mine off.

My Rugged Ridge boot fits my 2013 premium JKU top very tight, but it looks awesome. My top stays down for extended periods.
