Promoted Product: CarCovers.com Platinum Shield SUV Cover
That open-air look is a Wrangler signature, but while your Jeep may be built to embrace the elements both on and off-road, you’re still going to want to keep it protected when it’s off-duty. That’s where a car cover comes in handy, and the Platinum Shield SUV Cover from CarCovers.com is a top-rated, top-of-the-line option.
Unlike universal covers, the Platinum Shield is semi-custom, ensuring a snug fit no matter your Wrangler model. Made of lightweight yet durable synthetic material with a polyurethane coating, the weatherproof Platinum Shield sheds water as soon as it hits the cover, while the double-stitched seams provide additional leak protection. Meanwhile, the UV-reflective silver not only keeps your Wrangler safe from sun damage, it also helps keep it cooler, making the Platinum Shield SUV Cover perfect for use in hot and sunny climates. (Just like your Jeep.)
This multi-layered cover also protects your vehicle from dust, tree sap, mildew and a host of other harmful pollutants, plus it comes with a limited lifetime warranty – because the only dirt that should be on your 4×4 is the dirt you kicked up on your latest outdoor adventure. And if you’re looking to clean some mud or muck off your Wrangler without damaging your paint job, be sure to also check out CarCovers.com’s ultra-plush Platinum Quick-Dry Towels for scratch, spot and swirl-free car detailing.
