I had 2 of them in my TJ. Not from that seller though.

I paid $10 each for mine. Nylon in and out, OK insulation, 20 oz bottles fit good. not a super-tight fit, but they worked alright.

One of my fatass friends complained that they wouldn't hold his 32oz. fountain pop, but considering he's a fatass and sitting in back of a TJ, I told him to fuk off. Besides, there were holders in the back behind the console that would fit his fatass soda.

edit. I had to add velcro to make them fit. 60 cents at ace hardware.

another alternative is a bottle holder for a bicycle, use a hose clamp to hold it tot he cage.

the pros are you can bend it to clamp onto your drink and the cons are that it isnt soft and might hurt.

you want to get trick, look at some of the more $$$ bottle cages and weld 4mm(?) nuts to your cage to bolt them to.

Hoseclamps are so gotmud.

I have mine mounted on my front cage & pushed around into the pocket created by the windshield frame. That way it doesn't slide down the tube & pretty much sits on top of the dash. With it being behind the cage, it's almost out of sight.

You can just barely see it by the grab handle in this pic.

Only thing that I noticed was that my water was in direct sunlight and got too warm.

Ah yes. The roll-bar cupholder would work well with a Bestop 1/2 top.

I've always thought about getting the marine style that move around so your beverage doesn't spill. A few times a year I don't get the cap on all the way and then end up wearing it after going up a hill or something similar.

I have a set - rugged ridge.

I put them on the front down tube, just before the bar going across the lower windshield...(to stop them from sliding down)

straps are way too long, but you need the velcro on the end. I wrapped them around twice and they stay put. Holds a bottle so so..and a can the same, but they stay put.


I have an extra set I was going to stick in the back maybe, but dunno if they would slip or not?

I don't think I spilled anything there except a few tears. And I think the photo is hiding just how steep that hill is.

Thing is, you bought Iroks after seeing that...

Steep? It's dam near flat.Tears?????? I think that's the only time I have ever been with you when I thought you were actually mad. Frustrated to say the least.

My Krawlers made that with no problem & I have been told they are no good in mud. So, I figured it was all about the driver.
