They made an exceptional cover for our motorcycle. Reasonable and extremely well made!

We bought one for our Jeep from them.

Pro: They are nice quality & heavy, I will give them that.

Con 1: Our Jeep has enclosed wheel wells & it didn't work for us. The tabs on the cover are meant to bend around the wheel well panel & into the wheel well lip. With our wells enclosed, there was no lip to wrap the tab around. We tried it with the tabs just bent in an L-shape, but they're really supposed to bend into a J-shape to lock into the wheel well lip. Without being able to lock around the lip, the cover wouldn't stay in place.

Con 2: We felt we needed to wash the Jeep before putting the cover on so no dirt/grit got trapped between the cover & hood that would scratch the vehicle while being towed. Once at our destination & we took the cover off, before putting it back when ready to leave, we washed the Jeep hood/windshield again to get any dirt off we got while tooling around. Too much hassle for me.

We decided, it's a Jeep...it's tough. So we just replaced all the wheel mudflaps on the coach with wider/longer ones & got one of those rock guards to hang at the rear & called it good enough.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
