Haha, it's a tonneau cover (duster deck), safari top and a wind jammer.
Works pretty well unless it rains a lot. Then it leaks into the back pretty bad.
I'll have to take off the duster deck for a couple of sunny days to air it out.

Stores pretty well I can keep the safari top under the duster deck and flip the wind jammer down under the deck as well.

I also got a sweet new accessory my son helped me install.

I was just minding my own business, driving on a rainy Monday when I noticed a dark blue jku with some sort of soft top combination.  What is it, how well does it hold up to the weather, does it store compactly, and how does it hold up in the rain?  This nosey neighbor is wondering.


You can see the weak spot from this pic.

So it pools up above the driver, does it end up coming through?

Comes in behind the back doors and drains into the cargo a little. It's not too bad but definitely not water tight.

Chad you should consider a 2 door wraparound for the back window, i have one, just never run it (pointless without the doors)
takes a little modifying to make it work, but not difficult.

i have the 4 door window also if anyone wants it (rear window in his pic above)

You have to have soft top door surrounds for that?

The window I will give away is the one just like Chad already has, not the wraparound version that requires door surrounds

Maybe consider this angle for a cut on the front- it would match the bottom angle of your bumper (similar angle to what mine is).  Maybe round the end so it transitions to the side better.  This is what I was going to do to mine until Sean sold me his Bushwhackers...
Took your advice Dave and trimmed my fenders as suggested, feedback?
I think I like it better!



Now it's time to reward my hard work.

Exhaust spacers installed, no more worry about my drive shaft boot rubbing and tearing.

Your fender trim looks awesome!
