Full Weather Cover

Hey Guys, my CJ sits in the garage most of the time but sometimes outside. I would like to put a cover on it to protect from all the elements especially fallout from my shop area. Looking at the normal cheap covers they don't impress me. I was looking a Covercraft Custom NOAH. I found it for a Jeep for about $239. From reading, the quality looks good. Anyone out there using one now?? If using another brand, how about an opinion on it???
thanks

I just got a California Car Cover for my 2009 Saturn Sky. Haven't used it outside in any weather as the Sky is currently entombed at a storage facility until next spring.

With the intense sun in TX, I would look into an outside cover made from Sunbrella fabric.

If I was going to leave outside all the time, definitely would go the Sunbrella fabric. But it only sits outside when I have the shop tied up and can't park inside (weekends, etc.). The Sunbrella looks to be about another $100 as well... Pretty pricey..... Not any other responses so guess most guys don't cover their Jeeps....

I have a Rain Gear cover from jeepcovers.com, only 120 plus shipping. Have had it over 2 years. Works well and I am happy with it. I recently developed a little leak where stitched seam has stretched a little. If it sits in a all day rain I get a little puddle the size of my fist. Here is a picture from a few years back where you can see it on.

Well, I ended up ordering a Covercraft Noah series full cover. Since I have the YJ mirrors I decided to order for a YJ model. I will have to modify to get it to fit my CJ5 since I will be longer as well as little wider. But it will have the YJ mirror pockets where as for the CJ, it does not. Guess not enough demand for the CJ version. Will see how it work when I get it next week...
