They (or you) make bows to support soft tops and covers from pooling water. I don't recall the name of the premade ones, but you can make one from pvc tubes and connectors to slip over the roll bar extensions and slip in the tube and you're done...

Go to a bass pro shop and buy the wooden bow kit for a boat top . it comes with 2 wooden bows and a connecter . Throw away the conector and put the wooden props across the roll bar extentions at the thumb screws for the door surround they fit my 97 TJ perfectly between and underneath the plastic part of the thumbscrews. HTH BTW they were about $16 if I remember correctly.

Bows will stop the pooling, but if you're willing to spend a little over a $100... I'd go with a trail cover. That'll keep the whole interior dry (including door openings) and they pull tight to minimize pooling.

I use a bow under my trail cover.... With enough rain they pool pretty well too, after a few years of use...

I have a trail cover also and I use a bow or water pools up pretty good. I bought a bow from 4wd hardware and like it alot.

I should have been more clear with the trail cover. It will pool too, just less than bikinis I've had. Best when used with bows. But it is way easier to empty the water from a trail cover than a bikini.

Sweet thanks! Has anyone made one before? I'm sure making one would be pretty easy
