Chris is a great guy. I am getting ready to take off my HT and put this on and the ones made for our tube doors.

They make them for tube doors as well? I don't see them on their website. Thinking about ordering a SpiderShade to have when my Jeep arrives so it covers the rear seats since my 18 month will be back there.

Well I drove 2.5 hrs today all highway up to Lake George, the shade was rock solid and even after my Jeep sat in the 90 degree sun all day parked for 8+ hrs when we got back in the Jeep it was very comfortable and nothing was burning hot to touch. Very happy with this product all around from customer service to function and looks.

Does it chatter against your sound bar?

We have a JK Unlimited and bought the Trail Mesh shade. We love it. My bald head thanks me often. And passengers in the back seat enjoy not getting smacked in the face with tree branches on tight trails.

At higher speeds, there is little flapping right above the sound bar. It's not bad. Though, I do occasionally put either a folded shop towel or a racquet ball between the shade and bar to mute it so that I can listen to the hum of the the tires. ; ) Actually, I've been pondering ways to run a bungee cord or spider balls through the grommets above the sound bar to snug it down.

I was driving 70+ mph on the highway with minimal flapping and no noise with Velcro pieces attached.

I usually roll up a piece of non-skid stuff (like what you put under a rug in your house) on top of the sound bar and it doesn't flap.

The shade is truly awesome and offers a great driving experience. I really wish I had an easier way to remove my Ursa Minor top but it's too heavy and awkward to remove for just a couple of days, and I use it so much right now.

Yep you can get them from Jeeper's Den in Orlando or from SpiderWeb Shades.

I leave my SWS on whether I'm putting the soft top on or not. I take it off for the winter. I never screw in those freedom bolts. Don't need them unless you're running just the freedom panels bikini style which I never do.

The Spiderweb Shade makes all the difference in the world. My wife would NEVER ride with me with the top off in the summer without it. She hates roasting it he sun and getting burned. The SWS makes it completely comfortable even at 90 degrees and we can still enjoy the open air feel. Love this product.

I realize that this is about spiderweb so I wasn't going to comment until I saw the picture. Not knocking the Spiderweb because I have never owned or even seen one but there seems to be a wide gap at the side roll bars.

I have a Dirty Dog shade and there is barely a gap at the side roll bars.

In any case either one would be an excellent investment.

That's how they are designed. I like the way it allows air flow and how it seems like there is no top on at all. I have been in Jeeps with other style shades and bikini tops but they all felt like there was a top on still.

Interesting point of view. I guess it would depend whether you want a little more air flow or shade at the side rollbars.

I like the fact it still feels open which is the reason i go doors off and top off.. But it provides the perfect amount of shade from direct sun light
