I don't have a Wrangler yet. I confess that right up front. I also just joined the forum and I freely confess to that too. I had a 2000 TJ that I bought new and drove every day for 12 years. I loved that Jeep but was not thinking clearly when I started letting my then-16-year-old daughter drive it. Everyone knows what happens next.

I'm looking for one now, TJ or JK (makes no difference). I would prefer a freedom top but I'm not limiting myself to hardtop only. Tomorrow I'm going to look at a 2010 Islander convertible, which brings me at last to my question.

My dog is with me 24/7, goes wherever I go. She won't ride up front with me so she rides in the back seat. What I need to do is keep her from jumping (not likely) or falling (more likely) out when the roof is down. So I need some sort of cargo netting I can put on and take off quickly but still leave the roof on the Jeep. There must be many in the same boat - what do you use?

Thank you.

Tom

I don’t have this net, so can’t speak from experience but I think it can be left on and used with a soft top. Take a look at the review on the bottom of the page in the link I provided.

Thank you. Just went to their site and looked at the cargo nets and I sure can leave the top on. Guess I misread the installation instructions the first time I looked :doh:

Ah - yes! Thank you! The pictures all show no roof which is what I think got my hair all conflaggerated.

We use one of the leashes that clips into the seatbelt fastener in the rear seat when our boys (boxers) ride with us, which is pretty often. The leash is short enough that they can’t get up on the sides of the Jeep but it gives them enough freedom of movement that they are able to sit, stand or lay in back seat comfortably at the same time. YMMV...cheers!

Hey Tom,

I would recommend the Dirty Dog cargo netting as it will work with your soft top up/folded down.

Here is a link to a JK

For the TJ:

I also recommend a harness attached to the seatbelt clip. There are leashes that clip into the seatbelt. I use this for my dog so she does not roll around in the back seat and to keep her in the Jeep when the top is down/off.

Have a great day!

I use a climbing rope wrapped around the sound bar. My pup has access to the windows, side of the tub, and tailgate, but couldnt jump out. I also use one of those dog / car harnesses for his body.

Far cheaper than $400 nets. And, less to deal with.

Thanks everyone for all your responses, though when my dog read "I use a kennel" she almost fainted:). I think the cargo netting is what I'll end up doing. She only wears a collar when we have to leash her, which is rare because of where we live. So the prospect of strapping the net on once and leaving it there appeals to me most. Besides I would be deathly afraid of my old buddy hanging herself somehow - she's not the most graceful dog.
