Rain covers?

Does anybody have any knowledge or experience with the rain covers for a YJ? I was wondering if I could go topless and just put that on at night when I'm home Incase it rains. If it is supposed to rain I could always put the soft top up? Don't really want all of the dew and moisture inside. What do you think? Any help is appreciated. Thanks y'all

I don't have a YJ, but my Bestop trail cover works great and I love it.

I bought a Raingear top. I've heard great things about it. Only issue, I bought the top that can be used with or without your soft/hard top. First time
using it rained. The jeep was pretty wet inside. Not pooling but wet enough.
Somebody said to support the top with tubing/pool noodles, extendable pole-whatever.
I used my winter brush/window scraper w/ extendable handle. This allowed the water to run off and not pool. Jeep was dry since.

I have a trail cover that I use quite a lot. In the summer I like to keep the top and doors off and not worry about rain/dew. The cover is quick to put on and take off and doesn't leak at all. There are plenty of straps to attach it to the body so it doesn't blow off. I recommend it!
Several different options/vendors. I have Besttop. Can't really say which is best tho.

Is it better to have one that can be used with your top still on or the one that is for it with no top on?

I went with this one I use a safari bikini top in the summer but don't want rain getting in and messing up my heated seats it has hooks to hold it to the rocker panels and fender flares then an elastic strap to hold it to the spare tire or trailer hitch take less than five minutes

I know with my Bestop trail cover I can use it with our without the top, I just can't fasten it in the back when I use it with the soft top up, I don't have carpet in mine and it doesn't get that wet. I'm sure some of the other brands are the same way. I run safari top and no doors all summer so it works very well for me.
