Smittybilt Cargo Restraint System

New product- anybody know anything more about besides what the website description is. or opinions on this product

http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.as...0&partID=42822

I realize the material is different than raingler netting and it installs similar to a soft top

I think it looks and would function really well. I am actually now thinking about purchasing one!

The only possible problem I see is the material. It's made of heavy mil PVC. It will eventually dry out & crack up from UV exposure. It's far cheaper than other net's, but I'm not sure how long it would last.

I'm actually considering one for my dog. It would work nicely to keep him from jumping, or falling out.

What does "will work with both the standard and extended top" mean? Do they have one to fit the LJ?

Prior to the lift, a TJ has the aerodynamics of a brick. After the lift it has the aerodynamics of a brick 2.5 inches higher.

Does not look like it will work with the soft or hard top on.

I believe that means they will work in conjunction with a bikini, or safari top. That's the way I was reading.

Looks to be a bit loose fitting. I would think it will be quite annoying at any speed above 20mph.
