This doesn't change the functionality at all as the straps are long enough to reach under the tailgate.

It's a nice cover and certainly easier and quicker than putting the top back up. I put in on before going to bed and remove it / put it back in the garage when I leave in the morning.

I have my doors off now and it still works just as well. My wife's Touareg is always tying up the garage and with my hard top and doors in there, there's no room for my jeep!

The only thing is it might cause some mildew or whatever to start in your seats and the stuffing will start to fall apart. After alot of this. Ask me how I know. not really a big deal though. youll just get little flakes (at least with a TJ)

I live in the mountains, and one morning I got the idea to try and taste some of the dew off of the inside of the jeep. It didn't taste anything like mountain dew though, so I wouldn't try that. just carry a towel.

Dude it's a jeep! I guess you could be a fairly new owner and just don't want to hurt it, and there is the possibility that you are part of the expanded jeep universe thanks to the jk and it's refined features but what happened to the rugged nature of both jeep and jeeper? Dew!? Who cares if you or the jeep are damp, speed up to allow the wind to dry you faster, if the temp is above freezing then the top becomes optional, doors are only on if you can't leave them somewhere safe. if your worried about safety but on some body armor. But guys it's a JEEP this thing has been shot at, driven through rivers, up mountains, bled in, and came back for more. I tend to respect the fact that my jeep is made to be like no other vehicle and enjoy it plus if it rains while you have to top down it does a good job of cleaning up the insides. Lol. Bottom line no the top being left down overnight won't hurt it, it's built tough, I can't however vouch for the constitution of the owner! Happy jeepin!

I'm in Clearwater (like 20 minutes from you) and I leave my Jeep open all the time. I keep a towel in my Tuffy center console and when I first go out in the morning give it a quick wipe down (seats, windshield in and out, mirrors) and I'm good to go.

This is what I've started to do as well, I've always got a couple of towels tucked under the seat just in case. Definitely have the top off today!
