Top Down/Off - Tie down pets

The weather is starting to get nice, and as a new(er) JKU owner I'm looking to start driving with my rear window out or soft top taken down. The question for those of you with pets, what is your system for keeping them safely in the Jeep either in the cargo area with the top down or in the seating area with doors off.

I'm primarily looking for a cargo area solution, but can foresee enjoying some beach time with the pup in the backseat.

I was wondering the same thing. My dog has a tendency to jump around in the car. She hates any harness, so I can't do one of those doggy seat belt things. This is great. Thanks.

I go with Sunrider mode up front for the passengers, and then have a spare set of back windows where I cut out the plastic and replaced it with paracord. Plenty of room and fresh air for the dogs, plus they don't have direct sunlight beating on them.

I would recommend dirty dog products.
I love my netting.
I don't think the netting would work well on a dog smaller than a Lab. Or a slippery Sam escape artist dog. But the netting quality is the best I have seen.

Nice idea.
I wonder if a screen would work as well?

I bet it would. (It might "whoosh" kinda loudly, though.)

Kurgo harness for the back seat. No dogs in the cargo area unless I have the top on.

I bought a 2 foot leash that has a clasp on both ends from a pet store and latch 1 end to the loop in the floor of the cargo area and the other to the dog collar. That keeps them in the jeep perfectly where they can put their face over the side of the tub to get air, but can go no further than that..

Simple leash works for me.

I use 2 leashes, the short one for riding and a longer one when were not.
