Anyone seen or have one of these?

Found this for sale. It's described as a Jeep rhino liner cover and apparently it's a deck/tonneau cover that screws into the same holes as a hard top and/or soft top hardware. I can't find anything like it online and it doesn't look like something home made. It doesn't fit the seller's TJ. Any thoughts on brand and if it would fit a YJ??? The seller is not close so I am hoping someone can help before I drive out and it doesn't fit. Thanks.

I have never seen one of those either. It looks like it might work, depending on which cage you have. Ask for measuements, so you can get the location of the cage openings.

LOL! Me too. It would go well with my current setup.

Looks like it would fit a family style cage.

CBinDC - why do you think it's for a family style cage?

Some years 87-90 (I think) have the sport cage. I have a '89. The back end goes down at an angle, unlike the family cage, which goes straight out to the rear and then abruptly turns downward toward the back of the tub. The photo shows two holes where the back of the cage would go. It doesn't look slanted to me. The two halves look uniform.

I'm guessing because of where the cutouts are for the rear bars... if it were for the sport cage, I think they'd be more towards the middle rather than near the rear like shown in that pic

Correct. Due to the angle of the bars.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

I'm not s lair, but I've been wrong a time or two, don't the sport and family cages/bars end I'm the same spot? Negating the need for a slanted opening in the pic? I'll bet I'll be told I'm wrong. Here comes... wait for it

well...you're sorta' wrong, which also means you're kinda right

while both bars rear kicker bar do end up in the same spot, the sport bars uses a sharper angle on the rear kicker..so you would need the holes for it to be further forward to account for that angle

Both bars cross the duster plane at different places and at different angles so this isn't interchangeable.
