ur supposed to do like bear grills and kill wild animals and make one. it has to be from large dangerous animals as you'll need the long teeth to use as tent spikes to hold it down. (but you can cheat and just get some beavers).

just get a large car cover; that's what i have, covers front to back so it keeps junk like pine pitch off the hood.

Im currently using 9x12 but that's with the top up and doors on. all three back windows are out and it covers down to almost the cab. Protects it for the most part. Top is up because tarp isn't waterproof

I have my TJ under a tarp, think its about an 11x14', just a cheapo from Harbor Freight. Ordered a trail cover for it last night off of Ebay for $77.00

I used a 6x8 last summer with some bungee straps and it worked great just over the seats and dash. If u need I can dig it out and take some pics of it on. This year when top comes off I'll have a trail cover. Probably worth the money when u can afford. Although the tarp worked amazingly well for the ~$10 I spent.
