$94.99 (each)FREE Shipping
Hey, guys. So, today, I'm here with the Bestop Duster Deck Cover in black, fitting all 2007 to 2018 2-door JK Wranglers. So, a couple of those different benefits include keeping prying eyes out of your Wrangler while you have precious cargo in the back, protecting that cargo from the damaging UV rays from the sun while you have the top of your Jeep, or even just from any inclement weather. So, this also benefits you by boosting a little bit of your MPG while you have your top off your Wrangler because in the cargo area, it's large, it traps air, it makes the Jeep a little bit less aerodynamic than it already is. So, covering this up, covering up that large area is gonna reduce some of that drag, boosting your MPGs overall and helping you out in that area. So, this option by Bestop is gonna do all of that while maintaining a really good fit as well as quality materials. So, this is gonna be one of your pricier options on the site at about $100. So, other less expensive options on the site are not gonna be less expensive by much, but they're just gonna be a little bit of a more simplistic design compared to this, even though it is very similar, and they're just gonna have a different attachment system overall. Now, there are other more expensive options that really just have some more bells and whistles to them. They may offer some different color options, and some options even have magnets that seal to the back of the tailgate instead of utilizing the tailgate bar, which is really good for hard top owners. Now, personally, I think if you're looking for a quality system that is still pretty basic and gets the job done, then this is a great option to take a look at. So, install is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. This is very easy to install in a matter of minutes. So, speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. So, we're gonna kick off this install by installing our tailgate bar. Now, if you have a hard top, you will need a tailgate bar as well as the tailgate bar retainers in order to install this and seal this to the back of your tailgate. So, what we're gonna do is slide this pin into our C-channel of our tailgate bar, making sure that our seal is facing the back. So, now, we can put our duster into position. I'm just going to flap it up and lay it on the back seats. And we're gonna tuck our tailgate bar into our tailgate bar retainers. And that's gonna keep some integrity as of the moment so we can attach everything and this is going to stay in place. So, I'm gonna move over to the side and wrap this around our roll bar, and I'm gonna loosely attach that Velcro while we get everything in position. So, now, we're gonna take our nylon strap and wrap it around our roll bar and secure that down in the buckle. Now, we're just gonna leave that pretty loose for now, and we're gonna move over to the other side and do the same thing. So there is also a zipper here. If you were looking to get the Bestop Windjammer, that will be able to attach to the top of this duster. So now we can do the same thing that we did on the other side and wrap our nylon strap around. Get that secured down in our buckle. And when we tighten that down, it's gonna give a little bit more integrity to the top. So, now, we can go around the sides and take our plastic tabs just like on our soft top windows and tuck them into our belt rail retainer. And you will even also have this little nylon strap to help you pull the top down, and this is because this is a black diamond vinyl material very similar to your factory soft top material, so this is gonna be very durable, protect all of your things in your cargo area very well. But it's gonna have a little bit of resistance because it is brand new so, we're gonna go ahead and pull that down to help stretch that out. Now we can just adjust this a little bit. Now, we're gonna adjust everything at the end, make sure everything is in place and tight. We'll move over to the other side and do the same thing.So, like I said, because this is a black diamond vinyl material, it is gonna need to stretch a little bit. It's gonna take a little bit of muscle to get these tabs in, but that's normal. It will stretch out to where it needs to be and that's why we have these little tabs here to pull on that vinyl. Then we can go back and adjust, make sure it's sitting correctly, tighten down our straps up here, and on the other side as well. So, all you have to do is close up your tailgate and you're all set to go. So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. For more videos like this, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.

It serves the purpose.
It fits well and looks good. You have to use your existing tailgate bar or purchase another one. Anyone can open it very easily so if you're buying it for security reasons I'd look around. It keeps wandering eyes off of your goodies though. Otherwise a great product. 4⭐'s only because of the security.Helpful (1)

Bestop deck cover
Just installed this afternoon. Was a pretty easy install and seems like a quality product so far. The finished fit could be a little cleaner but I’m hoping it’ll smooth out once it relaxes a bit. Overall I’m very happy with it.Helpful (1)

Perfect addition to my Wrangler
This duster cover is an excellent product covering and protecting items in the trunk. Easy install.Helpful (1)
Is this the Black Dimond material?
Yes that is correct. The standard soft top material is described as "black diamond" on, for example, an individual Bestop soft top product page. This deck cover is indeed utilizing that same material.
Will this fit over the soft top when it is folded back into the trunk space? I don't remove the soft top from the jeep, only fold it back.
From my understanding it will not as it will only be able to be installed with the top removed.
Does this work with rear seat recline kits installed?
This would not work the best with the recline kit no.
I currently have the Bestop Trektop NX Twill soft top. Will the tailgate bar from that kit also work for the Bestop Duster Cover or do I need to purchase a different tailgate bar?
Hi, Yes the tailgate bar from the kit will work with the Bestop Duster Cover.
Will this Deck Cover work with the standard OEM soft top tailgate bar?
Yes, this will still work.
This will work with the OEM Tailgate bar.
Yes, for install of the Bestop Duster Deck Cover you will need the Bestop Tailgate Bar found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-tailgate-bar-jk-5260101.html if you do not have the factory tailgate bar.
Yes, the Bestop Duster Deck Cover can be used with hard top and soft top models but will only be able to be installed with the top off.
The Bestop Duster Deck Cover can be installed using the Bestop Tailgate Bar, item # J15402, (https://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-tailgate-bar-jk-5260101.html).
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer any bars that will keep the cover from puddling.
