Bestop All Weather Trail Cover

Just purchased it this past week and put it on tonight. Seems to fit nicely, although I feel it could be a bit more snug on the sides.

Anyone have one of these? Would love to hear your feedback.

The side straps should be adjustable so you can tighten it down. Now that I added side steps. the hooks can't reach the body to hook onto, so I looped some paracord around the hooks and looped them around the tubes on my rails / steps. Also while this cover is super snug when you run without a top, it doesn't quite fit as snug f you have an aftermarket soft top with the slightly bowed top.

Mine fits very snug on the sides, though I have rails on mine vs the side steps you have on yours, so I'm not sure how yours differs in terms of attachment points? Finding a good place to hook the strap to is key, especially with the straps towards the front. You want to hook those forward as opposed to straight down. That's how you get it snug.

In the middle of my side steps, the hook fits In between so I can hook to the body. When I get towards the front and rear, I have to adjust , giving me a less snug fit.

On a second note, are any of you able to fold it back up into the bag it came in?

I don't know if it's the best thing, and hopefully I can explain it.
What I do is take each side and throw them up on top then fold each side over again till it is folded up and just laying down the middle of the top and it's now about 12-18 inches wide. I then go to the back and start rolling it tight and dragging it toward me. When it's rolled up it's usually a little smaller than the bag diameter wise and fits right in.
The best part about doing it this way is that I when i go to put it on I just throw it up on top roll it out and it's on in under 2 minutes. Now that I think about I also leave my spiderweb shade on all the time and that probably makes it easier when I'm rolling it up or out.

Hope that makes sense!

I have their full cover for the JK...and had the cab cover for the TJ....FWIW when ya want to "put it back in the bag"....i kinda do it like a sleeping bag...lay it out as flat as possible and than roll it to a shape and size I can pack in the bag. Not to tough once ya catch on.

Thanks for the advice. I'll have to try both ways and see what works with getting it back in, by both suggestions seem like it'll get the job done

His "way" will be the best and easiest.....I generally tossed mine on top of one of the other vehicles in the garage. My covers only got used in the Winter......

My Garage stays at least 50° even in the middle of winter. So I used it/ them to keep frost and snow off the Jeeps that were parked outside.

Toss it in the garage when I left for work, and by the time I was "done driving for the day", everything was melted off and it was almost dry...toss it back on the Jeep.

Mine generally get rolled up and stored when we begin to get more "mild" weather......
