I have had mine rained on a couple of times, it wouldn't play CD's for about 2 days and then it would kick back up in full force.. is it totally fried? maybe a plastic bag over the console would work, that way you wouldn't have a wet towel to deal with as well as a wet Jeep!
I got a new head unit coming today and I plan on encasing it in some flashing with 2 very small fans, at least for the part inside the dash, outside I'm not sure yet, I like that jensen fold down cover.
I like that,.. it seems like it might give the jeep some "safety" too. How do you connect it to the jeep stereo?
In the boat, the head unit mounts into it, and then the whole thing slides into the din sleve. You may have to do some minor mods to get it to fit into a single din mount for the Jeep (assuming you've upgraded to a single din head unit). The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of the added protection for the head unit.
I seem to remember the older alpines or Blaukpunks had a Handle that pull down and you could pull the whole unit out. I don't think they make them anymore though.
The marine cover works good though. My buddy has one in his TJ.
