Jeep Cab Covers
face it, there's really nothing more fun about a Jeep then to be able
to drive it everywhere with the top and doors off. However, the downside
to this is that it's a real pain in the butt when it comes time to
put everything back on. So, like many of us, I just leave it all off
most of the year. Well, this wouldn't be a problem if I could fit
my CJ into my garage but at almost 7 feet at it's tallest point, it
has to say out on the street.
I first started looking into some kind of a cover for my Jeep not
to protect the crappy paint job but rather to keep out neighborhood
cats fighting to mark their territory on my floorboards. The first
cover I got was a full one made by Steelhorse. For most of you out
there, that's all I probably need to tell you. For newbies out there,
let's just say that this cover was a glorified paper towel that basically
self destructed after the first rain storm.... what a waste of money!
I have since moved and no longer have cats to contend with but my
CJ is still on the street and now it's underneath a canopy of messy
eucalyptus trees. So, I started to look into another cover and after
doing some research, one company came up time after time with high
praises from their customers.... Raingear.
The cover cost me $95 including shipping but can tell you that the
quaility and fit of it is bar none and worth every penny. Also, I
placed my order for a new cab cover from Raingear on a Monday and
this thing showed up on my doorstep by Wednesday!!
How to Use
Remove your new Raingear Jeep cab cover from its handy storage bag
and keep it rolled up.
2. Unroll the cab cover
length wise from the back of your Jeep, over the top of the roll bar
and then over the windshield (see pic on left). Make sure that the
"Raingear" logo ends up on the windshield.
3. Unfold the cab cover
and fit it around the cab of your Jeep until it's snuggly in place.
Make sure all the tie-down straps are hanging to the ground and not
caught up somewhere inside tha cab.
4. Attach the cab cover tie-down
hooks to holes on the frame rails as shown in the pic to the left.
Once hooked on, cinch them down corner to corner and then cinch in
That's it, your done! This cover is really that simple and quick to
put on/take off.
NOTE: If you don't have
a bikin top, there is a strap on the front/center of the cover which
is intended to be secured to the footman loop on your hood. Attach
and then cinch this strap down to remove any excess slack on the cover.
