any good solutions for a 2 door cargo net

I want a cargo net for when I go to the keys. Take the back seat out and keep the top on. I was going to use the mounting bolt holes for the hard top. Or maybe the tiedowns we have in the back.

Have to look around at PepBoys locally to see what they had for some sort of stretchy net.

I don't want the cage net as I want to keep the top on. This is just to keep stuff tied down with the top up or down.

Did not see anything in the catalogs I get as of yet.

Any ideas would be great.

I think a truck net might work but I have to get the exact measurement off my Jeep to see what might fit.

If anyone knows the LxW of the back cargo on a 2 door let me know. I am not near the Jeep now and want to check a few stores on the way home.

I use this one in my 2-door. It fits with the backseat in place, though I usually keep the seat in the garage. The sticky tape isn't strong enough for anything, but it comes with screws/backplates that work great. I'd absolutely buy it again.

I use a net from Safari Straps. They have many different sizes.
I also installed some strong tie-downs.
This may be more than you are looking for, but if you're wanting to tie stuff down, it should be good enough to keep things in place if you crash and/or roll.

Thanx i saw that one but i want one more like the second post. I want to stretch over everything. Like ronjenx said to keep things in place.

I saw a guy with a TJ and top down on us1 in the keys and I don't know what happened but his suitcase jumped off the back seat as he was driving and ended up in the road.

I saw the jeep parked at a bar with everything in it then later down the road he was stopped picking up his stuff. Figured I would not be that guy

I use a stretchy short bed truck cargo net on my 2 door. I have hooks mounted to the bolts holding the top down for each side and use the provided hooks at the rear. Has worked for 3 years for me and secures items in the back but is easy to unhook to remove items.

Home made cargo net

Spend $6.00 at Home Depot for 100 feet of 1/8" nylon rope and 2 hours of your time to make a cargo net any size you want.
Make overhand knots spaced 6' apart in horizontal rows (see diagram 1), then overlap vertical rows by interlocking overhand knots (see daigram 2).
Finish it off with 3 foot lines at each corner.
A taut-line hitch secures the net after passing through the tie downs around the rear compartment and rear seat anchors.
