CHris,
I used to have one of those covers on my jeep and it fastened with little two inch plastic pieces that fit into the rail system. There was one at each corner, that way you don't have to run the plastic piece under the entire rail and it still holds the cover on.

I have full car cover, but it would be nice have something that would be easier to get on and off. I like going between the windscreen and the cage - avoids lights and snorkles. Tying it down to side mirrors might work or just have bungie cords at corners with padded hooks to secure it to rear crossmember and rock sliders in front - or an adjustable strap instead of the bungie

Would love something like the Qwik Cover - something I could just throw over the top and secure (so it won't blow away) in 30 seconds.

I run Badger's surrey and tonneau almost all the time which wouldn't work well with the current cabin cover design.

I'm tempted to cut up a cheap full cover and buy a sewing machine. Don't want the bulk of a full cover and since I've never washed my truck in five years, I don't want a full cover messing up the patina of dust and grime on my bodywork.

that was the jeep one I had for my TJ when I had it... It was very fast to setup and was great for the TJ b/c i could use it w/o the doors. it had 6 clips on it that I clipped to parts of the frame or bumper.

Ive owned the truck for a week so i dont really run it at all but i wouldnt worry about it covering the doors its just the waterproof aspect of it that one Ryan posted that i like. The other ones seem like only dust cover and i would want something for when it rained.

Yeah, waterproof is a must. We sometimes get flash rain storms that last minutes before it's back to sunshine. It needs to go on and come off quick and easy.

the badger one should be waterproof as it's made from the same material as chris's tops are.

Yeah, the new, not yet created, Badger loose-fit quick cabin cover will be the hit!

The material that I am using for these covers is acrylic sunbrella canvas and not the Haartz Twillfast.

Yes, that is the material and it is waterproof. I have 11 names on the order list as of yesterday. I'm planning on fitting one on the jig today.

Here's a pic of my cover. Obviously it's not as tailored as Chris' stuff but it works great. I've had it out in the rain and wind and it stays on fine. All I need to do is pull the rope ends and it's secured on by the side mirrors and the third brake light bracket. There should be enough room under it when I add the four lights up top.
