Can anyone recommend a car cover for the JH. It does not have to be top of the line as the car is garaged. Just looking for something that will keep the dirt out and cats off.

Slightly embarrassed to admit that my cover is from Walmart, a Budge brand. I think a Size 3. $39.00 or maybe even $29? Tt fits, it keeps the dust off, and that's about it.

I also have a Budge cover. It was with the car when I bought it in 2000. It is a simple cloth cover with no additional padding. Fits nicely and hangs down to just above the floor all the way around the car. Once or twice a year I throw it in the wash and it's good to go.

On the other end of the scale (and a plug for things made in the USA): California Car Cover makes a great custom cover for the JH that is amazing and will last many years. Fantastic fit and great materials to choose from. It's custom and it's not cheap, but if you want something special, I would take a look at their web site. Prices range from about $135 to $300.

I used to buy the cheapo covers.

Recently bit the bullet and bought one of the top of the line ones from Jim @ Delta. Fits like a glove. I will never buy a cheapo car cover again.

I have had a Budge cover for years and just last year a freind gave me a nice quality one, were as the Budge will let dust through if it sits for awhile the better quality one keeps all of it out. 

So now I put the quality one on first then the Budge on top of that, but any cover is better than no cover if the car is going to sit.
