Raingler Cargo Nets (pics)

I received my raingler nets today and a couple grab handles. Easy install. the buckles are heavy duty metal, which was a surprise. They fit well although the side nets are a bit loose. Overall I like them. It was a nice easy pain free mod.






I know a few of you have made your own on here. I don't have the time or the patience (or a sewing machine ), but I commend those who can do that sort of thing and come out with a decent end product. They're a bit pricier than need be. They should knock them down about $50-$75 and the price would be about right, IMO. But I'd recommend some nets. Between camping equipment, toddlers or dogs, they sure do have their uses.

I want a set of them, i think the only thing keeping me from getting them is i make people climb over the rollbar to get in the back and i think the nets would get in the way.

They look great though.

I got them from:

I'm happy to say that I don't notice any more wind noise than I had before.

I don't get it. Is this so you don't have to secure papers/wrappers that are lying in your floorboards? It seems like one more thing to make a wrangler louder on the highway.

for me its a safety issue, you ever been on a trail with branches flapping back at your jeep, well with my daughter back there the nets save her from getting whacked, others use them to keep there dogs in while driving topless, and some keep it to keep other people out. and they are nice since you can keep them on with the soft or hard top. FYI: mine make 0 noise while driving even at highway speeds

I had a set of raingler nets for a number of years. They worked OK.

I recently installed a set of nets from Safari Straps. The fit is better, in my opinion, and based on what the OP stated, it seems I am correct.

Details of my Safari Straps installation are available on my site. It's been a long time since I looked at the raingler prices but I believe Safari pricing is a little better (but check for yourself to be sure).

I like the nets. I am one of those that made my own. For me, it is for my daughter when she is in the back seat. Tree branches on narrow trails.

It's not any louder at all. Some people have dogs and camping equipment in the backseat that they don't want falling out. As for myself, I regularly haul daily shipments to the post office from our family businesses. On good days we may have 40+ priority mail boxes that I have to cram back there, and I'm always concerned about going around a corner too fast. Other people use it to keep tree limbs away from back seat passengers. So there's a lot of different reasons.

Only downside I've found thus far is that there's a bit more of a blind spot with the nets there. Other than that, they're pretty useful.

I used to have an Ebay set of nets on the TJ and loved them. I might splurge for the real things when I get my YJ
