Sorry to hear you got disappointed. It's a drag to get hopes up and get something...well...that doesn't fit your needs. It would be nice if they put something on the webpage warning you can't use the rear easily.

I might just keep it anyways since I would have to pay for shipping to send it back. Which would hit me for at least $20 and then put me right back at the price for a regular tonneau cover. It might be that this is still easier to remove than a regular tonneau anyways and the highway driving with this thing is WAY better than stock. So much less drag.

Where did you get those seat covers? And do you like them? And how much we're they? Sorry for all the questions, I just can't afford to make mistakes when I'm buying things for my jeep.

Well heres an update on the zipper tonneau:

Its extremely quiet even on the highway, I thought it would flap around alot and make noise but there is none to be heard. Its not as much of a PITA as I thought it was going to be getting to the rear seat belts. I am keeping them like they are in the last pic I posted. I really dont use the rear seat as often as I thought I did in any case. In the am I only have one kid to drop at school and when I pick them up from the in-laws they can both fit in the front seat since they are only a block away. And it keeps my cargo area dry. So I guess the plusses outweigh the minuses. Still needs a good look at the seatbelt issue tho seeing as how thats their marketing tactic on this product.

I'm kind of glad your keeping it, but they should say in the add that the seatbelts are covered up at the top.

anyone know if they've updated the design or if there's another company out there with a design that accomodates the rear seatbelts better? i use my back seat about 2-3 times a week minimum so having it be a pain to get to really isn't a good option for me.

Water pooling like that is normal with your back seat being under the tonneau. I have owned both bestop and smitty tonneau covers and both puddled in the same spot with the seat in. I dont believe the puddle was so deep though, most rolls off the sides. Doesnt matter either way, the lip towards the front should keep water from entering and the minute u move, the water will fall off your cover. Looks good
Another note, its very easy to use backseat without the zipper. Just unhook the sides of tonneau and tuck cover behind the seat, keeping the back still attached in soft top bracket.

Looks like i see another design flaw. There is no curved upward lip at front of tonneau to make sure the water stays out.

This isn't the best photo but u can kind of see the upward curve. It helps keep water from accidentally flowing in. Tonneau is usually tighter but the lip is still visible

I think my main problem is that its also a soft top boot. so its made to go over the soft top hardware, which I dont have. so theres really nothing to keep it tight enough to run all the water off. Still its not a big deal, it keeps my amps under my rear seat dry and thats all I needed it to do anyways. If not for the amps I wouldnt have anything there at all since I would rather look at my seat covers
