Safari Straps?
 
So im confused on safari straps... I was looking at the site i cant understand which one i want... I have a 2 door jk and want my whole backseat to have straps but there are so many things that its just confusing me... Help? :doh:

I have them. What are you confused about? I prefer the original 1" straps and went with those. The 2" straps are very popular however.

daggo: can you give a photo link or discuss the advantages of these?

daggo66 07-11-2011 10:24 PM

First and foremost I think they look cool as sh!t. I get more positive comments about them than anything else. I even got pulled over by a MD state trooper once because he owned a TJ and wanted to know about them.

I have 2 dogs and it keeps them contained when they travel. Even with the soft top up, it keeps their wet snotty noses off of the plastic windows.

They are also very good security device. I once looked my keys in the Jeep. I figured I would just unzip the window and reach in. Wrong! Because of the straps I could reach or climb in. I had to spend 20 minutes getting them off, which was extra difficult because the top was up.

Very nice

Which option did you get on the safari strap site? Cause there are like 3 that look the same to me but are way different in price. That's the part that has me confused. I can't figure out which one to buy

daggo66 07-12-2011 06:00 AM

This is the set that I have. Jeep JK 2DR Window Set It's just the 3 window areas, not the top area. Since I keep my back seat in, I have an extra set of fastening straps and I start the rear section higher so that the bottom is even with the top on the rear seat.

Cody4x4 07-12-2011 07:19 AM

Okay well what is the difference between the window set and

Jeep JK 2DR Warrior Cage Extended

Just 120$?

daggo66 07-12-2011 07:25 AM

There's a big difference. The warrior set is the 2" wide straps vs. the 1" and it goes all the way from the sound bar to the tail gate bar.

Cody4x4 07-12-2011 07:31 AM

Oh okay, Thank you! Thats what confused me the whole time! So is the one you have good for you? Would you have went back and bought the other if you knew now? Or is the one you have now fine for you?

daggo66 07-12-2011 07:51 AM

I am very satisfied with what I have. I did not want the thicker straps cutting down on the already limited rear window visibility. I have a soft top boot so the extension that goes to the window bar wouldn't have worked for me.

I do like the extension to the sound bar, but solved part of the with the extra set of connecting straps they gave me. You will not find find customer service anywhere than you will from the owners, Hatch and Maral.

Cody4x4 07-12-2011 09:38 AM

How much did the extension cost you?

daggo66 07-12-2011 09:44 AM

I did not get the extended set.

Cody4x4 07-12-2011 09:53 AM

I meant the connecting straps? Did they cost you more?

daggo66 07-12-2011 09:55 AM

They sent them to me for free. That's what I mean by excellent customer service. They even offered to sew them in if I sent the nets back, but it wasn't necessary. You can probably get it put on in advance if you choose.

Those look like what I have currently on mine. However I was given mine from my friends old TJ.(Not a perfect fit) They go from the top of the back seat to about 4 inches shy of the soundbar. I am going to get Smittybilt 571035 - Smittybilt C•RES - Cargo Restraint System in Black for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door - Quadratec in the near future as I like more coverage especially over the cargo area. Only concern is having to remove the net when I put the hardtop on. Even thinking of making some safari doors myself and fitting my old nets to the doors, then I could use the old rear net between roll bars behind front seats to keep the dog from jumping to the front every time I get in/out.

I had a couple adults in the back, biggest problem is obviously getting past the passenger seat. They didn't comment but by their :D I'm thinking it was a non-issue. My daughter rests her head on the side net and naps on longer drives.
