Which car cover???

Hey all. I want to purchase a car cover that I can put on my 13 wrangler JK 2 door. I have a front bumper with a winch and a rear bumper with 33" tire on it. My question is which cover would be the best and fit with these mods. I'm going to be keeping it outdoors so it needs to be weather proof. Thanks

Won't get much help. I'd say 99% of people on here don't use car covers.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

Well, I can tell you the Smittybilt one is not weatherproof. When I bought it, the description said waterproof. After creating a gusher onto the interior of my weeks-old Jeep, I see they have conveniently updated the description to water resistant.

Since my Jeep isn't my daily driver, I still use it to keep the sun and bird crap off it, it at least seems successful at that.

Bestop Cover

I have enjoyed the Bestop Trail cover, but I have to keep it propped up in between the front seats with a 2x4 or water will collect there an eventually cause it to leak. With the board there (or umbrella, or cane, or fence post) the water runs of well and the "on/off' process is simple.

I to have the bestop trail cover. Doesn't leak, just forms a pool of water above the front seats. Just be careful removing it and you'll be fine. Also works with a bikini top and nets. And comes with a storage bag that fits perfectly behind the drivers seat hardly taking up any room.
