Always nice to meet a former Yinzer.

Guess I should have stuck some smilies in my glib posts above. Obviously I was kidding about the hijacking since I in fact, hijacked this thread for my own question as well.
That Yeti design is nothing short of spectacular and I like the suggestion of the red crosses

BTW, I think the Yeti Rescue Vehicle theme fits your all white Wrangler perfectly. Have you thought of similar designs for the front doors and / or hood? Maybe a Red Cross motif?

Actual, helpful, non-hijacked information. Love it.

Thanks.

Celtic - that's the best idea so far. Plain, hardshell stage for the expression of the month. How were their prices?

How much did it cost? Maybe I can chip in.

OK, I just regained the Hijack King title (with your help of course, thanks).

Maybe I will get a static cling of a great looking w/t like yours and slap it on my tire cover.

No, it does have elastic inside the circumference - I thought you meant that there should be an elastic extension cord that extends out of the slit, maybe to cinch it all up like a hoodie drawstring or something.

I've seen others and videos on YouTube where there's elastic all the way around (like this one) but there's also some sort of cross-cabling in the back or some way to snug it all up once it's on.

JIMBOX The slit, is placed at the bottom and it's for drainage of the cover inside/"give"/ stretch and it's usually coupled with an elastic back band--

Sometimes the slit is used to allow room for a tow hitch support, for the spare tire !!

Copasetic ?

radioscooter I'm working on my custom cover design and found a blank white vinyl cover. Question, what's the slit/open flap part for? I hate to be so dense, and I thought it might be for the brake light? But that doesn't seem right. Here's the rough version of my Yeti edition design, BTW. (not final)

miuwu208 I had purchased a Bestop cover for mine and had a embroidery shop put a badass scull & crossbones on it.

Overtrained Id be worried someone would steal it.

Another Guy In A Jeep You can buy a plain tire cover and custom paint it, then protect it with a clear coat, I think
