Will it fit with the '87 to '91 sport bar??? If so, I'd gladly "test" it out for you.

I'd test it! If you can make a believer out of me than you can probably make a believer out of anyone.


Also like to note that my girlfriend is Irish...I'd drive her around all day, if she didn't burst into flames like she does now then you have a quality product, sir.

OH WAIT. WHAT?

no offense or anything, but VDP has a mesh bikini top that'll do the same thing, and keep some water off of ya. how does it compare price wise?

any idea on how well it will stop rain (it looks like small mesh holes so i would assume it does to an extent) and will it fit a sport style roll bar without modification and without the 3rd brake light?

also does it flap in the wind at all?
with the bungies i bet it wouldnt be to much

i was looking on your website and i saw it acts as a windjammer COOL that makes it a 2 for one deal i am impressed with that
but how far down does it go?

btw im willing to test if the need arises

I would gladly test this out for you. Looking at the video it seems like it sags a big over the center roll bar. Anyway of adding additional straps so that it is secured to it?

I dont like the bungie idea. Too many extra parts to break and with all the rings in the edge of the top that just looks like to may extra places for a rip or tare to form. I also dislike the gaps. Just an extra spot for the sun to come in. I can so see the sun coming in on my eyes from the gap in the front and the side. Have to love that Florida sun. I have something like the vdp top now. I dont know the brand it was the first of the mesh kind quadratec had for sale. It is basicly a bikini top but made of mesh. It gives tighter fit, better coverage and cleaner look. There is less stress points to break. Just my 2 cent.


Just watched it again and noticed the strap in the back going to the additional light. That is a hinderance.

Had another thought on my way home just now. The gap's I mentioned earlier also create a problem on the trail. They make a great place for a tree limb to grab on to on the front and the side.

Its not a jeep if it dont have 4wd.

I think $60 is way to much for mesh with bungee cords......in my opinion of course.

i see two benefits ... it does not get in the way of other tops so it can stay in place and it is made in the states ... too bad it does not come with installation by that nice looking girl. that would make it worth double haha.

nice work guys ... it will work for someone like me who would not want to mess with installing a a traditional bikini top after removing soft top.

NO need for a header!!! All other tops fit right over it. I think the SpiderWeb Jeep top is cheaper than the VDP and way more versatile!

Thanks for asking.

Sorry, but that really looks cheap. A nylon tarp, couple zip ties and some panel tent bungees for $60? I'll pass.

Don't think anyone here gets it. The price is very good; the design is excellent; solves tons of problems for us with custom designed rollbars/cages.

Who owns this company? Where are you located? What is your address and phone number? I get these answers, I'll order one and recommend them to others.

in the video it hangs too low...kinda cramps your style...easily solved by rerouting over the roll bar...i think it was routed this way for the girl part

i think i'd use it most often wrapped vertically around the rear bars...it'd give my 14 mo old daughter some protection from tree limbs when the top is off (i already have a mesh top)

i'll be through orlando in about a week, and then off to moab, mosquito pass and other trails in CO and OR for two months...be glad to thrash it

Thank you sir. We are in Orlando Florida, and it is very HOT the ShadeTop just works, and the wind reduction is really unbelievable.
