anyone using the smittybuilt restraint system?

http://www.quadratec.com/products/14070_9302_07.htm

was thinking about rhino-lining the tub and getting this plus a bikini top. Does anyone have this setup?

I'd go Raingler instead, I am no fan of anything imported by Smittybilt. Click on this link to see Raingler's cargo restraint system... Raingler - Jeep Wrangler

I went with a moab net top. The reason. Is I can run it with the top on or off. Now I have not been able to run it without the top off yet do to the weather

Which one do you have, the Smittybilt, Raingler, or Moab? All three have been mentioned above.

I have one for my TJ and for the price I love it, of course as stated before the one downside is the fact you can't have a roof with it on. I don't know how the new jeeps work with folding the roofs back but mine I have to take it completely off for the netting to work, but we have droughts that'll last months so it's no problem for me

The c.Res just has straps around the roll bar I don't see why you also couldn't strap a bikini top on

I really like that C-res. My girlfriend and I spoke about getting one this past summer and then passed. We just happen to be at HF and saw that they carry cargo nets that stretch (kinda like a soccer goal net) and got that for a summer trip. It worked great. Cost about $25.00 and with a bit of ingenuity I could make it cover the whole rear half.
With that said, Lol! I would like to get one this summer. Or may be I'll just make it in the shop.

This is a custom made bikini top I made in the shop (i.e. garage/sewing area) I've got for sale right now. It works well and is easy to hide under the soft top.
