Pet Containment

The wife and I were out enjoying the day this weekend and my dog decided to jump out and chase a squirrel. Luckily, I was going about 5 mph so there was no injuries. My concern is traffic, etc. Does anyone know of a screen or net that might attach across the roll bars?

Plenty of stuff out there. Cargo netting is probably the most secure.

No problem. Safari Straps is the way to go!

In an emergency, a few ratchet straps can create a temporary barrier.

The smittybilt one is nice and cheap, but

-it can't be used with the soft top
-seems like the material would be too thin or not enough to hold up to a larger dog

With those two things in mind, I went with the safaristraps cargo system as well as the pet center divider. I have an 80 lb boxer who is all muscle and it holds him in quite well. Yes they're a pricy system (I think I spent around $500 for everything), but definitely well worth it and if I had to do it all over again I'd buy it again without hesitating. Trust me you won't be disappointed with the safaristraps netting. Oh and if you do have a smaller dog and are worried about the size of the holes, you can call them up and they will modify it. With my boxer though the hole size is perfect. He loves hanging out in the back and sticks his head out one of the holes when we come to a stop (the first picture is the hole he tends to use all the time at stop lights haha). People laugh and smile all the time. Oh and last but not least, you'll probably get a lot of questions when driving around so be prepared, haha.

that looks like an awesome idea for me to use for my two labs. Too bad the price is 500 bucks though. Right now I have a hard top and i use a pet barrier from weather tech up in the front so they dont jump through. We were at a gas station and both my wife & i got out at the same time and the 10 month old lab made his way out her door in about 1.5 seconds. They love going for rides in the jeep with the T-top portion of the hard top off.

If I remember right, the center divider was $100 and the extended cargo netting that included the side windows was $350 or $325. I can't remember. Oh they make a slightly cheaper one, but that doesn't go to the soundbar.

This is all for a TJ btw
