I'd be interested in pictures. Do you still have you rear seat in?

@BRS256, does that rear netting not go any lower? I was looking at aspen and a few others and hoping one of them went lower than that.

My cargo straps choice was pure function over form so went with cheaper Aspen straps. They actually look better than I thought and I pull them tight with some bungee balls here and there. I rum 'em with my soft too down so that fills the gap in back. You can pull them down you just loose some hight. Or as I said, you can stretch with supplemental straps, but my Boxers aren't slipping through any holes so some may have different needs.

Bottom line is they do the job and take just a minute to get in in off and have been plenty durable. Still, I go with the harness tied to eye bolt on tub as one dog in particular will do just about anything to get to another dog so better safe than sorry.

Heard from a few folks that you shouldn't leash dogs from above, i.e roll bar, but not sure why or if its even true.

Completely off topic but what size tires are you using?

I have 4 dogs and I have the same worry about one of them. I have ordered the Smittybilt Cargo Net but in the meantime I simply Tie his leash to the center of the soundbar allowing enough slack to allow the dog to get his head to either side of the jeep. Dog wears a snug harness and is happy and safe.

Just curious for anyone whos ran the smitty cargo net for a length of time, does it sag? I like the look but would hate it if it started to sag if it got wet or age sagged it. Any one?

I've had mine for 14 months now. Used from early may-October 2012 and mid april-now. I have 3 siberian huskies, one that is 50 pounds and lays on top of the wheel well with all her weight against it. It hasn't started sagging at all. I did have to fix a piece after some punk cut a section. Easy fix, I just had some 1" black webbing inside and out sewn in. I've packed it full of camping gear, brush and large carboard boxes.

My wife is seriously way too concerned about our puppy jumping out but this thread is very helpful! I am going to fasten the harness to the seat connect as described! Thanks

It can go down about 4" lower in the back ... I previously had my hilift mounted in that spot so I didnt need it to be lower

We have our small dog in her soft sided travel carrier which has a seat belt loop. We are debating removing the back seats and having her carrier strapped to the floor. Would a hard carrier or soft carrier protect her from wind noise better? We are going back and forth discussing the pros and cons. I feel hard carrier offers more physical protection in an accident but he feels she would be softer thrown against inside of a soft carrier than the hard sides and neither of us know what the wind noise would be like for either. (We want to have the top off) she's 5 lbs, too small for us to be comfortable with netting products.

I'm no expert but if wind noise is an issue with your dog I would think twice about exposing her to an open-air vehicle traveling down the road.

I didn't read through everything, but I agree with those who recommended Smittybilt. We have two 60+ pound dogs who ride in the back with us. The Smittybilt have a zipper on the back so we can open the tailgate and let them jump in.

I shortened the leash so IF she does fall out she doesn't go anywhere. But going down the road she wont go near the door edge. It's only when stopped she gets brave....

Three years ago, I found 2-1/2 pounds of worms and fleas in the form of a Rat Terrier puppy. She's been my constant companion ever since.

She got me off motorcycles and into Jeeps so she could be with me. She does not try to jump out but I put her on a leash when we're on the highway. The leash is tied short to the passenger grab bar so she only has enough slack to stand, sit or lie down in the front passenger seat. I use a highwayman's knot, a quick release knot. It is not the best arrangement for everyone but works for us.

Here is Spunky untethered in her favorite spot when we are green laning with her front feet on top of the center console.
