Jeep top hammock

Saw a "Jammock" on the extreme terrain website the other day and thought it was awesome, but it cost $130. Has anyone tried to make any kind of chair or hammock that is incorporated into the Jeep. My preference is to see the hammock type setups. W

Seems like you'd have to be REALLY vertically challenged to fit between the bars, especially in a slung hammock....Tying it to a tree outside would be cool, kinda to make the Jeep a part of the camp:-)

Yeah I often hang a hammock from the roll bar to a tree but that's about it.

Ha, never thought of that... I am 6'3", so I suppose that would be rather uncomfortable. Any other ideas out there?

Do you have a 2dr? or a 4dr? (I suspect 4dr)

This is what I did for sleeping in the back, and got hidden storage to boot:

I think once you see how the Jammock fits, you'll feel a little better about the price. It was built specifically to attach to your Jeep and holds up to 350lbs. It's a comfortable material and definitely is a quality product. There are other options, like attaching an actual hammock between your Jeep and a tree.

However, if you're looking for something that can be used anywhere on the trail, the Jammock is it.

jammocks are pretty comfortable, surprisingly due to their size but i could sleep in one.

There's a Jammok thread over in the Wrangler general section. I think he sells them direct for about $100.

The pictures look like it gets streched pretty good, does it retain it shape, or how long before it returns to normal? Also it looks like it might flap a lot when driving.
