Is anyone running the QuadraTop Tonneau on your JKU?

I placed an order for one of these... QuadraTop 11051 0515 - QuadraTop™ Tonno Cover in Black Diamond for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door - Quadratec
I like to run my Trektop NX without windows in the summer months but would still like some mild rain protection for the exposed cargo area. This looked to fit the bill. Nice price... good coverage, but I'd like to hear some real-world experience. Thanks!

It looks like it would keep things from blowing out and maybe help from light rain but its not closed off at all so water will get in there. You could always get a water tight box for back there and then have the tonno cover on top of that.

Yeah, I'm not really concerned about being waterproof... just something to cover the area from light showers. I'm interested to hear about the quality of this tonneau... as the price is really good.

So what's the verdict Ape?
Are you currently running the tonno?
I'm thinking about this for some added versatility.

Anybody order one of these? Says you need to remove the soft top hardware, guessing the door surrounds but in the picture it looks like it'll work with them?

I use mine with the surrounds. The fabric bunches up a little but not a problem.

Do you plan to run the NX top in addition to the tonneau? Be advised that the tonneau uses the bedrail, so that may conflict with any plans to run the tonneau and NX at the same time.

In any case, I do have this product. I like it with the exception of the part that wraps around the roll bar. There is a bunch of of extra fabric there, but I can't get it to sit flat. there's a raised ridge between the areas where it velcros around the bar. It is not water tight, due to the areas at the front-most edge along the tub rail and along the back of the rear seats. I also have the bikini and windjammer. With the bikini and tonneau (duster), unless the rain is coming in sideways, it all stays fairly dry. I tend to goose the jeep forward if room allows to dump any standing water of the back. Otherwise it will dump into your wheel wells and cargo area.

I had that same problem with it not sitting flat. On a hot day, when the fabric was stretchy, I undid the Velcro and pushed things down. Once I did that it made more sense how it's supposed to fit.

I also run it with the Trektop NX. When I put the windows in, I just pull the tonno up from the rails and let it lie on the Tuffy lockbox I have. I haven't tested it yet but I think I will be able to store the windows between the box and the tonno.

I'm running a Trektop NX, but the doors and windows are off 6+ months out of the year. Just need some "out of sight, out of mind" security and some water resistance for the trunk.
