Jeep Cover with Roof Racks

Looking for some help from the experts here. I have a 4-door Rubicon with a Gobi roof rack. I am looking for a cover for it when I have the top off and can't seem to find one that fits with the roof racks. Have any of you run into this and what was your solution. Please save me the throw the rack away advice...considered that allready. Pics would be great too.

Here's a picture of what I have:

Thanks in advance!

Like a trail cover or driveway cover? Buy a regular one, cut four slits/flaps for the roof rack poles and install zippers at the slits to zip it up to the pole. Voila!

2008 supercharged sahara JKU, gibson exhaust, 3" lift, 34" toyo AT, 17" AKWs, electronic sway bar disconnect, AEV bumper with warn 9.5ti and skid plate, AEV heat reduction hood, garvin expedition rack, piaa roof/pillar/winch lights, cobra cb, tow package, trek top nx, color matched hardtop/fenders/bumpers... and a few other mods

Sorry, I know this is kinda off topic, but do they make a 2 door version of that rack? That looks awesome!

Blue tarp and some straps? Are those steps functional on that rack? I love it!

Looks like a nice rig. SO, why don't you get a custom trail top for it.

Recently had a jeep buddy have a custom cover made for the Colorado summer showers on his TJ with a custom rack and basket. Paid 260.00 for it and is full water proof with a couple of custom tie down points.

Hit up local upholstery shop or boat cover builder. The cost will be higher with the four door and extended length, but worth every penny.

They do. Go to Gobi.com. It takes a log time to receive them as they build to order, but I'm learning that you can't be in a hurry.

That's likely what I'll do. Thanks for the help!

Tarp is what I'll do while I wait for something more permanent.

The steps do work well, but standing on the tire is easier.

HesterSoCal,
I love that Jeep.
I have ordered the Gobi rack for 2 door. 6-7 weeks to delivery.
What is on the rear? That bumper, tire carrier, etc. are the jewels.
Thanks,
Jim

NO need to answer. I found it on your profile. SWEET!

It looks like you should be able to use the BestTop trail cover by putting it under the rack. I have the Body Armor rack on my JKU and am able to put my trail cover on between the sport bar and the roof rack.

Regards,
Shawn
