I bought my JLUR with the dual top group. What does everyone do with their softop when they are not using it? Is there a bag or some short of rack/shelving? I'd like to somehow possibly hang it on my garage wall. Thanks!

My soft top arrived in a box, and the top itself was in a kinda crappy vinyl wrapper with Velcro straps. It works alright for winter storage. I just lean it agains the wall of the garage.

I’ve seen soft top ‘boots’ that are intended to cover the soft top while folded on the Jeep. They may work for storage.

I just got a couple harbor freight "hang all" wall hooks and wrapped an old blanket around the top before I tossed it up there.

Maybe I'll figure out something that looks nicer sometime after I paint the garage walls...no ETA on that

I have a pair of fairly deep brackets to hang it on. I strap the mechanism together and place a blanket around the material to protect it.

Isn't there an Floridian entrepreneur interested in running a swap "wrangler roof" service between the Northern and Southern states?

Jill, only because it still amazes me, even though you asked about soft top storage, as posted in the thread @AirportDave refers to above, this guy's (the amazing Jeff Scherb) son stores his hard top.....

under his bed....

This is exactly what I do too.

Jill:

A thought...anybody telling you that the soft and hard tops can remain on the JL concurrently is incorrect.

The JK, perhaps a different story. The following is the only part of the Soft Top that FCA gives its "blessing" to remain attached to the JL when the hard top is on.
