Cabin cover

Is there a cover that will protect the TJ cabin with the soft top installed, the doors off and a mirror attached to the door hinge?

It looks like the bestop cover might do it, but I'm not sure about it.

The cab cover that I own, and all the ones I have seen will not fit over a framed soft top while it is up.

Mine fits over my Safari top just fine though, so it would probably fit over one of the frameless tops without windows.

Unless someone has came out with a new one that works over factory soft tops, I am afraid you are stuck with buying a regular car cover for a small SUV or something.

But, if your windows are already out, it's nothing to fold the top back and throw a cab cover on it.

RainGear now makes a cover that fits with soft top on. I've had one of their "top off" cover for several years.

Velcro opening for the mirrors.

Okay, so they will work with the soft top folded down, but still installed. What about fitting over the mirror?

That looks perfect. Do you have any idea where it's made?


I appreciate the help from both of you!!!

The company is Utah based. I'm sure you could call to see if the covers are "made/USA" or not, if that's your concern.

I've had mine for 5 years, but haven't had to use it last 1.5 years (got space in garage). Really easy to put on/off once you get it the straps set. I really like the way it fit around mirrors with doors off/on.

I bought one from 4wd and put it over my softtop (raised) and towed my jeep cross country from Reno, NV to Detroit, MI. Think it was a smittybilt or rugged ridge. Worked great. Looks like the raingear one but tan.

My wife purchased a RainGear cover for my Father's Day present. There is a bright American flag tag saying made in the USA! The quality is excellent! It has actual straps with turnbuckles and hooks instead of elastic. The only downside is it is rather heavy and the bag takes up a lot of space however, that is sort of a positive because it is made out of thick material. I got a chance to use it at the gym today for the first time. It took me about a minute to throw on. Even with a good storm passing by my jeep was nice and dry.

I got mine in `08, and don't know if they have changed much since then. But, I also like the webbed nylon straps with adjustable buckles/hooks. Only took a few minutes to locate good anchor points (mostly existing holes in the frame). I have never used the strap for the footmans loop on the hood, just put the wiper blades on cover.

I got to where I could take it off or put it on in just a few minutes, even in the dark.

Mine did fade from a medium gray to a light gray after many days in the Texas sun, I don't think it had any other ill effects.
