Yep...click on the Offroad Concepts link above and then on the "Shop" button. A LOT of Jeep netting but I assume if the dimensions are what you are looking for it should work

Well, that is a good question and one I'm not sure I can fully answer until I actually buy one and try to install it. I know they use footman loops in some applications (like what you'd use to secure a bikini top's back straps on a FJ40). I was thinking top part would be secured to the grab handles and the bottom to the tie down points...Middle part not sure

Not sure on the hole size but I'll ask Eddie. I did ask if the web spacing is standard or if they can custom make the nets to have tighter spacing between the webbing.


EDIT: I rec'd this response back from Eddie tonight. I will say this, he has been very quick to respond back and so far great to work with
I will have to get back to you on the net dimensions. i checked it earlier and you will have about a 4-6" gap at the very top of the roof center depending on how you adjust the straps and if you change mount points etc. The net uses 8 cam buckles each with 2' of strap for attatching and tightening. We get many vehicles that do happen to use a net originally designed for something else. The ring point allow for flexibility on web direction as well. The net is set with about 4" openings This is done for the best balance of visibility and not too large to let most items pass through. Anything can be done on a custom basis if you wanted a one off to your specs too. We are in SE Colorado, near the NM border. Another option may be a just above the rear seat back net if that may be more cost effective and still get the job done. please let me know anything else I can answer, will get back to you on Monday with the dimensions as I won't be in the office tommorrow. Thanks, Eddie

I hadn't thought of NOT doing a full net but that might be a workable solution (and less expensive). I don't think I need a net that goes all the way to the floor.
