I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line with leash, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers. Today, we're gonna talk about the installation of this zip line kit, as well as the construction and a few of the features. This is, of course, for those of you who like to bring your pets in your Jeep with you, but want to keep them in the backseat and keep them safe. This can also be used outside of the Jeep at a campsite, but it's really designed to keep your pet in the back seat. All you need to add to this is a harness and you have everything you need. This is a universal fit item, so it will work in any Wrangler of any year.This zip line kit comes with two different pieces. Of course, the zip line itself and then the leash to attach your dog's harness to. Again, this does not include a collar or a harness, so you'll have to provide that part. The zip line itself is a really well-built piece. It is a canvas material, it has rubber-coated hooks, there is a spring loaded metal catch so that you can adjust it. That piece is going to go between both of the rear seat belts and be pulled tight. From there, you will clip on the leash portion which has two high-quality metal carabiners on it, and clip the other end of the leash, of course, to that harness. This is a part that's going to be very easy to install, and it's going to serve a couple of purposes. One, it'll keep your dog safe in the event of hard breaking or an accident, but two, it will keep your dog in the back seat of your Jeep, so they're not distracting you while you're trying to drive.Installation for this is, of course, a very simple one out of three wrenches, it's hardly an install at all. All you're going to do is take the hooks of the zip line section through your rear seat belts, and pull the adjuster tight. From there, clip one end of the leash to the dog's harness and the other end to the zip line and you're finished. This will come in and out of the Jeep very, very easily, so you can put people in the back seat and then switch to the setup for your dog in no time at all.When I first saw this item, I thought maybe it was a little bit expensive for what you get. But then, after taking it out of the box and actually looking at the quality of the components, I think it's absolutely worth it. I love the fact that these are rubber-coated hooks, so they're not gonna make any noise or do any damage to the inside of your Jeep. This spring loaded clip with the teeth is going to hold the zip line nice and tight wherever you adjust it to, and these carabiners are heavy duty high-quality carabiners, not the type where the spring is going to break in no time after a couple of uses. This setup is gonna hold up and it's going to work as advertised for a good long time.So, if you like to bring your dog with you in your Jeep either on road or off-road, but you wanna make sure that they stay in the back seat so they're not distracting you and also stay safe, a zip line setup like this is a great option. This will give your dog a little bit more mobility than clipping them directly into the seat belt, but still keep them safe.So, that's my review of the Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line with leash fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Its a strap zipline!
It is a good strap and fits the jeep wrangler. It is adjustable so you can have alot of room for slack or tension. Its a good purchase particularly at that price.Helpful (1)

Piece of Mind
This is pretty easy to install on the bars. I love how the lead has adjustable loops so you can give them more or less leash length. My only issue was the hook that runs from side to side can give your pup to much freedom, especially if the doors are off the Jeep. My puppers attempted to jump out of the Jeep. We did however make the hook lock in place with a little ingenuity. But overall extremely satisfied with it and it’s purpose.Helpful (2)

RESTRAINING AN OVERLY HAPPY DOG
EXCELLENT! KEEPS THE DOG INSIDE AND OFF OF ME! HE CAN STILL PUT HIS FRONT PAWS ON THE CONSOLE AND LOOK OUT BUT THAT IS AS FAR AS HE CAN GOHelpful (2)

This product is great! My 80lb pit bull Thor wasn’t so excited to be stuck in the back seat, but the zip line gave him plenty of room to move back and forth, up and down. I love that you can adjust the height of the carabiner to suit you need. The material is heavyweight along with the carabiners. I can’t say enough great things about this product.Helpful (2)

Zip Line faults
This is a heavy arraignment with heavy a carabiner. It's not very usable if you have a smaller or lighter dog. I didn't like the inability to remove the leash from the length that snaps to the line. The length that attaches to the main line does not have a snap swivel and the dog gets tangled up as she moves around. I believe it's made well but not engineered well. I am more satisfied with my own contraption that works flawlessly.Helpful (3)

Zip line w/leash
My zip line with leash systems works very well for my dog. Make sure that you purchase Grab Handlers for the system to hook onto.Helpful (4)

Very good product
The zip line and leash are very well made and sturdy. Easy to put in place and give the dog plenty of room to roam without worrying about the dog jumping out of the vehicle. Highly recommend this product if you need to keep your dog safe and secure.Helpful (6)

Dog zip line
Worked perfectly for my Amstaff. Quality construction. Exactly as describedHelpful (8)
IT would appear from the pictures that the length of the leash would still allow a dog to jump out the side window or door opening if the doors are off. Is that not the case? It would seem to me that it would work better if the leash was restrained in the middle of the tether.
The Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line w/ Leash (87-17 Wranger YJ, TJ, JK) is made to help secure your pet and work in similar respects of a seat belt. This zip line is not intended for use off road, nor does it prevent the pet risks associated with traveling when a top is down or off.
I’d like to install the zip line around the roll bars, and not the rear seat belts. The instructions provided in the box only cover seatbelt installation. Are there any instructions for installing around the roll bars?
At this time we do not have alternate instructions.
Will this still work if I secure this to the floor in back of the rear seats on a JK Unlimited? I have two car seats in the back and would like to be able to secure this in the rear cargo area. Thanks, Mike
The Kurgo Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line w/ Leash can be attached any number of locations. As long as you secure this to good mounting points, there will be no issues with using this in the cargo area.
I have two dogs. Can I order an extra leash to go on the zip line without ordering a whole extra unit?
Hello, unfortunately for the Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line w/ Leash (87-17 Wranger YJ, TJ, JK) you will be able to only get it as a complete kit.
