Trail Cover

Wife got me the Bestop Trail Cover for Christmas this year. Last night I finally got to use it since we had a chance for rain. Took just a few momemts to install and it worked perfectly. So happy I will be able to drive to work this morning without a wet butt.

The front has straps that wrap around the windshield hinge, door flaps has two adjustable straps that hook under the rocker, the back half hooks in the belt rail (just like the soft top windows) and also has straps to hook around tail lights and spare tire.

I got one too. They are great and easy to use. Only issue is with the factory steps.... the hook that attaches to the bottom of the Jeep to hold it down is now pulled out from the side about 3" or so and leaves a bit of a gap at the bottom of the doors - no issue unless the rain gets heavy or it's windy.

Amazon 'Used' is another possibility.
Sport bar owners and Family bar owners sometimes order the wrong type.

I got mine on Amazon for $70.
The note in the box from the original buyer stated it "doesn't fit".

It was in pristine condition and Amazon has an excellent return policy.

Will that cover fit over the soft top? I have the doors off, the side and rear panels off, but not the top itself.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If it was a frame less I think it would. Don't think it would with the frame top.

No, they are made to fit snuggly over the roll cage and the top bow is too big. The top needs to be folded down or removed. Lower doors can still remain on tho.

thats where I am at anyway. I just have a feeling we put the hardtop on and its gonna be a hassle to take off. Yes we will leave it in a garage at home or at the shop, but its still taking off somewhere with the top off and getting caught in a chicago downpour that I am trying to get away from. That was the lowest price listing, I am pretty sure all will be drop shipped from the same place, but they range from 140-180
