CJ-7 hard tonneau, anyone?

Hey you guys— anyone got any bright ideas about a hard tonneau cover for a CJ-7 tub? I don't need one with the tonneau/duster combo, as I generally climb up on the wheel & jump into the Jeep. I was thinking about building one from scratch by starting with a standard pickup truck hard tonneau & modding from there, but I figured I'd ask & see if you guys have got any pics, experience, or know of any manufacturer of a product that fits the bill. Thanks!


The problem with Jeeps is that everyone fancies himself some kind of Adventurer after he buys one. As if courage, or ruggedness, can be had for a mere $27,745 MSRP

That would be interesting to cut down a hard torno cover for a Cj but how would you work around the rollbar? If your good with fiberglass cut the curved edges of the truck one then cut down the center to fit and reattach the edge pieces. Maybe a 3 piece type cover would work, have some brackets off the center piece on each side that would allow the outside pieces to slide around the roll bar and put a pin through the brackets to lock them on?

A guy in the JK forum (LOL) made one. I'll get that thread if I see it in my subscriptions, I like how he made it...
