Bestop does the Mopar covers too, and they've had the puddling problems back to at least the TJ Covers I own.. Maybe since they are watching this thread, they might have a good suggestion
Just to clarify it does not fit 100% with the soft top left on in the safari style position. When the soft top is totally removed it keeps water out....so far.I have it as well, it stretches to fully cover mine when topless with no gaps. I do have one issue though in heavy rain. It will actually pool up water over the front seats and it will be a decent amount if it was a heavy rain. I think need to bail it out before climbing inside and pushing it. I made the mistake my first time of not noticing this and flooded the passengers side.
I know that exact part you are talking about. My dad has that top on his JK, lol. That part would work perfect for keeping the water off.I've used boards and stuff like that too, The best option I found was the Trek top has an aluminum bar with an upward curve that works nicely and fits a slot in the door surrounds on my JKU, But I've used a piece of PVC as my go to on many jeeps
Is this with the soft top on or no?? I have a soft top as well and was wondering if it fit with it on.I have the Mopar cover and have used it with just the top and the doors off to protect from rain here in Florida. It will stretch enough to cover 97%. There is a small gap between the cover and front door jam maybe 1/2" but has kept everything fairly dry. It fits behind the rear seats when not in use.
If it's like the JL cover, the instructions say to stuff towels above the sport bar to raise the middle of the cover. Water drains off faster and it takes the sag out of the cover so water doesn't pool. It takes a lot of towels to get significant lift, so I bought these foam balls to use instead of towels.I found out I had to do something the hard way, right now I have a board across the top that is working. I feel like though being an emergency cover this is something that FCA should have thought of. I mean for $150 i would have expected something at least a little better. I don't want to have to keep a pipe in the car, but I do like the idea, better than the board I am using.
I never checked if there were even instructions with it, lol. Maybe my answer was already in there. That is a good idea. I might have to test out some smaller options. I have just been putting the cover on top of my JT the last few weeks and not putting it back together. gives me some time to experiment a little.If it's like the JL cover, the instructions say to stuff towels above the sport bar to raise the middle of the cover.

Was the gap along the bottom because the door was too high, or because it was too far out from the sill?I REALLY wanted the 2-piece Bestop soft doors to work. I just couldn’t get the front doors to fit. Their was a 1/2” gap along the entire bottom of the door and huge gap in the front lower corner (I could put 3 fingers through it).
Tried to get resolution through Bestop C/S, but they just didn’t appear that concerned. Never got to top halves or the back doors. Sent them back to Quadratec.
