I assume you are talking about the CRS. The thing I don't like is you have to take it off to use your top. I have nets that attach on the roll bars and you can use the top without removing the nets.

Yes you've got to take it off to use the top. It hooks on using the side rails. Other than that I check out out at the store and out seemed nice

I have one that I bought in july. True you have to take off your winter soft top or hard top. I used a bikini top with it and then I bought the smittybilt extended safari top. Works fine with both even with the sound pods on the roll bar. I even put the door rails on so I could drive in the rainy weather hah.



Yea yea I know the dumb driveway pics but it's all I got on my phone.

Not bad! I think i'll be considering this as well, for my large dog, and really no other reason than that i can leave it on.

Yeah that's nice too I like it. I always have stuff in the back spare tire tools ropes shovel gloves etc. I like the smittybilt for my reason of not allowing easy access to my goods around the tub of the jeep haha although it's not fully protected it helps. Plus my alarm would activate if anyone was to try to steal. But that's my reason. I don't have a dog to roll with me so I'm jealous Hahah ! I like how that one goes where the windjammer would normally be located. Plus the color choices haha. Good find! Know anyone on the forum with one? So that we can get a durability review? I'm going to admit the smittybilt net seems thin and somewhat weak but I have not had much stress on it. So it has lasted so far haha.

I like the color choices of the recommended netting but this would never work with my dogs. I have three and they are all medium to large. I like the CRS because it uses the window channels and is more secure. The bikini top works just fine with it too.

raingler nets are soo much nicer imo.. and they dont mess with either the soft or hard tops

i have the 4 piece set.. the main piece that goes from the WINDSHIELD all the way to the trunk, the 2 side pieces, and also a divider piece that can be put between the front and rear seats (except i use mine to hold my spare tire)

i originally bought em for my pup.. but my mom got rid of him a while back

oh and on another note.. my wife and i have actually SAT on top of the nets.. makes a great hammock to lay out at nite and look at the stars.. holds up to 400 lbs..
