When I designed the bar of the above post https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/best-set-up-for-pets.16340/#post-400623 I sought to merge safety with throwback notions of driving your Wrangler at a snail's pace on the beach, with your best friend and copilot by your side, his/her window open, free to move about the cabin and enjoy the smells and sights and stimulation in the same way we watch TV.In no way was the targeted at you. I apologize if it came off that way. I get passionate about vehicle safety because I know first hand, both personally and professionally, just how deadly they can be.
Loved the springtail barrier in my JK. Was bummed it didnt fit (not even close) to my JL. Would buy another [/QUOTE]I think that it has been traditionally accepted that the safest way to transport pets in a Jeep would be in a crate strapped down in the cargo area. Obviously, this is not exactly a lot of fun for the pet.
The opposite end of the spectrum is letting your animal roam freely in the vehicle....this not only is dangerous for the pet but also very dangerous for the occupants as in an accident, your 50 pound dog now becomes a missile of exponential mass bouncing around the passenger compartment.
Personally, I think that seat harnesses are a great compromise, If you don't want the dog in your passenger area or they are destructive, a well designed cargo barrier is a good option.
We built a solid cargo barrier for the JKU (which honestly was not a great seller but the folks who bought it loved it). We also do one for the FJC which has consistently been a best seller of a decade now. I'd be willing to work one up for the JLU if there is interest.
I frequently encourage people to do things that make them happyCmon Covet you know it’s a mistake to encourage a proud Dad to show off his kids! This is my wife with our guys yesterday, had just got it home.
Thank You, you would be surprised how many people will try to approach without knowing us. Both very protective but totally different personality and demeanor.I frequently encourage people to do things that make them happy
First pic I probably would not run up and try to pet that... Second one! Beautiful dogs!
