Sarah Sahara sleeps inside the garage at night. I'm looking for a lightweight cover that'll go over entire vehicle. (It's got the Sky Roof if that matters.)

Over a cover, I'd draw a curtain of some sort between your workshop and the jeep. Designed right and kept taut, it'd be way easier and quicker than pulling a cover around, and later off, the jeep every single time.

Additional benefit would be keeping that entire side of the garage clean, not just the jeep.

If you want something temporary right away, this is probably the cheapest way to go:

A 10x25 4mil roll is only $25 or so at a big box store. Nail it right into the ceiling with roofing nails or some scrap wood so it won't tear out, or just duct tape/staple it.

A few cotton duck drop cloths would probably be better if your metal working side sees a lot of sparks, slag, or hot shavings. Maybe hang a welding blanket at any hot spots. You can put in grommets and use shower curtain hooks to hang on a rod made of conduit tubing to be able to move everything.

Post pics when you've finished!

A weighted PVC curtain on a track so you could open and close it as needed.

I dont know if you care about scratches and swirl marks, but a cover would give your paint that dull look from so many swirls, and some scratches overtime. Even a light brushing with your finger on clean paint puts in micro swirls so i could only imagine putting a cover on it all the time.

I hear ya! Being white it doesn’t show swirls and easily as my black Lexus. But when it does I hit it with some Menzerna and Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant.

Another white Wrangler? I suppose I'll waive my consulting fee in this instance.

Why'd you choose white? I've decided to start collecting answers; they used to be rare.

Ha. Nah, you didn't lose, you comprised, and contrast is important! Wouldn't want to get into the wrong vehicle by accident.

Enjoy the much cooler summer-time interior!
