Advice on hard top storage

Any ideas on where to store or what to store my hard top in?? Large piece of plastic covering maybe? I don't have a garage and don't have the $$ to but a specially designed cover for it.

The hardtop was designed to be outside... I have mine sitting on 4x4's outside.... Fall comes I'll wash it before I install it.

A Jeep Factory Service Manual is your best friend.

Oh okay I was thinking about the inside of the hardtop getting wet and stuff but I guess doesn't matter?

I have mine sitting in the driveway on a set of saw horses. The inside never gets wet because of the way that the top is designed.

If you cover the top with a sheet of plastic, it will "sweat" and cause moisture and mildew problems. Mold will grow. It needs to breathe.

Just keep it off the ground so it doesn't draw ground moisture and don't worry about covering it. Give it a good scrubbing inside and out before you install it.
