I make no secret about my relationship with Rugged Ridge as they have been an amazing partner in my build. Heck, there would be no build without Al, Ray, Henk and the amazing team there...

But I have no idea why I waited so long to install my C2 Canine Curtain. I have a 2 door JK, and my boxers are more comfortable for now, riding with the back seat in place. Before the C2, they would put their paws on my center console and take turns trying to force their way into the front seat with my wife, or should I say, on my wife : ).

I understood the benefits of it , but because I assumed I had to fully tether the Canine Curtian to the roll bar and the floor, I feared I would have difficulty loading them into the Jeep via the Passenger door.

I installed it on Friday and I left the bottom untethered. The Canine Curtain's heavy Ballistic Material was weighty enough to hold it down blocking entrance to the front. To load them in, I just held up the curtain with my hand letting them jump in the back seat, and then pulled it down in place.

They completely respected it, and for the first time I was able to take a long ride with my wife with the top open and not have the dogs stressing us out or licking my face while I drive.

It was tons safer, and way more fun.
I may take some small old weights I have in the basement and secure it to the bottom bungee ties, just to give it more hold-down power without sacrificing the benefit of being able to move it aside by hand.

If you have dogs, and you love jeeping with them, I highly suggest this!

Here's what it looks like from the back seat of a JKU. There is one SKU for blocking access to the front seat, shown in this image, and it works on 2 and 4 door. 13260.05

There is a separate SKU for blocking the tub area off from the back seat of a JKU. 13260.06

In this image you can see it blocking the back seat area, and the C3 (configurable cargo cover) protects the entire tub area. Great combo if this is where your Jeep Dog rides....

Looks awesome! I have two goldens that fight to get onto the console. I bought a hammock style seat cover with a mesh screen between the front seats. It isn't tall enough and they eventually climb over it. The mesh is torn now too. I may have to give this a try.

Looks nice. So far, what has worked for me is :
- Dogs sit
- I open the door and say "Get in"
- I say "Sit" (again) and.....

We drive away.
Gee, what a hardass ;)
I prefer "load up" myself.
Disciple can be a wonderful thing.
And a hard habit to break.

I once had guy leave a bag of chicken strips in my rig and didn't find them until I could smell them.
The bag looked like it was tromped some but otherwise intact.

I just usually point in the open door and the dog jumps in... Or at least the front end does. The back end is broken and sometimes needs help. She does sometimes rest her chin on the center console during longer trips, but I'm ok with it.

I tried something similar, but occasionally one of them might screw up the order of step #2. Do the "get in" before I open the door. I had a nice dent on my XJ due to that.

Oh, and step #0 would be the command "go pee". Just as with kids, I find a bathroom stop before a long drive a must.

Nice. I have a leash I just tied to the rear roll bar.It gives her just enough space to be just behind me. I have her jump in she turns around for me to put the leash on her and then I close up the tailgate. Once its closed she will walk about behind my seat I will give her a quick pet let her lick my face quick and then she goes back and lays down. When she was a puppy as strong as that thing looks it would have to be made of Titanium to keep her from getting up front.

A double click (mouth noise, like you make to get your horse moving) means to jump up on something. So with the Jeep door open she gets in. And sits on my seat. So I say, "you're not driving," and she gets in back to her perch and guards the back windows from invading joggers and bike riders.
Diligent dog, Jessi D. Wundermutt, guardian of the Jeep.

Jessi would get used to that curtain thingy but my wife never would. She'd say, "Jessi has rights too" and the argument would be over.

I'm on a mission from Dog.

My dog loves my Wrangler.

If I put on my shoes or hat, my dog heads for the Jeep. When I open the door, he jumps in unless I tell him to stay and sometimes he jumps in anyway. When we're alone, he always rides in the front passenger seat and considers it his. When my wife comes along, he'll jump in the back but then puts his front paws on the console and slowly but surely makes his way to the front so he can hang with us. I took the backseat out and leveled the floor so he can stand there pretty comfortably.

That curtain looks nice, but I don't think it would work for us.

He'd give you that look of betrayal. My dog has perfected that look.

Seems like a quality, heavy duty product. Fortunately for me, my dog is too busy hanging his head out the topless jeep from the backseat to care

Ever since my dog got his license, I'm not allowed to drive anymore.

Any problems you can foresee with a small dog escaping between the rear seat and door surrounds
