I went with the ultramesh. I think it's perfect. Unless you are going to be super rough with it or live in Mexico or something, I think utramesh is more than enough, and it's cheaper to boot!

I really like that you can leave it on with the top up.

It does take away a little from the true open top feeling, but you still get enough sun to know you don't have a roof.

I would say, from my perspective, it is a really nice thing to have in July and August and I will probably only use it during the really hot time of year. I think spring and fall I prefer the true open top. But well worth the money to save you in the hot months
I concur. I have mine on but it's folded back so I can get some sun. I will probably only use it wheeling when I know I'm gonna be baking in the sun all day in 4L, or maybe in August when I'm sick of summer, right now I could use a bit of a tan. But I really do love the thing.

We have them! Shoot us a PM, email, or give us a call and we will get you taken care of!

The main differances in the TrailMesh versus the UltraMesh is the TrailMesh is a havier duty mesh. It also comes PCV coated and has a 5 year warranty! The UltraMesh is a softer mesh and only has a 1 year warranty.

Looks cool. Is the mesh fine enough to also help protect the interior from dust, pollen, etc ?

Nope. The weave is open enough that dust, etc will still come through. Of course, if your lid/doors off it is kinda moot.

I have the Trailmesh, and of everything I have done and plan to do to the Jeep, it's probably my favorite mod. Great product and they're pretty cheap!

Just ordered the UltraMesh from Jason at Krawl Off-Road. It was 103 this past weekend in Atlanta. Spidey-shade can't get here soon enough!!!

I bought the "SW1 JK-2D" a couple of weeks ago. Easy to fit and its proved to be very effective in the Texas sun. Riding around all day with the top off proved to be quiet, breezy and thoroughly enjoyable. I thoroughly recommend this product.

Ultra mesh. Went on without much trouble. No rattle, frankly the thing doesn't even move even on the highway. Very pleased

JKini only covers from the windshield to the soundbar, yes. Unfortunately they don't seem to make an UltraMesh version, only the darker TrailMesh.

On the plus side, there's a cutout at the rear of the shade, making it easy to open/close the rear-center freedom top clasp. The full-size shades lack this cutout, so I'm not sure how folks secure this latch.

Not intended use by any means but I found out a bonus to These recently in monsoon season. While not waterproof the will block a lot of it at first giving you some time to seek cover or throw the top up before your interior gets completely soaked.

If its not pouring I've gotten to where I don't even bother. The shade blocks enough it's no different than If I went mudding with the top down.

anyone with a jkini have annoying flapping issues? I went for a long drive and it was so annoying that I removed it at a rest stop and then got burnt.

Mine flaps, and while I personally don't find it too distressing, I can see how it could get old on a longer trip. I've considered sewing some soft velcro onto the rear underside of the shade (somewhere on the nylon webbed opening) and sticking the scratchy side to the painted area of the rollbar.

Another option would be to get some metal snaps. Melt a hole in that same webbed area on the shade and crimp on the dome half. Then drill and pop-rivet the other half of the snap onto the soundbar plastic.

I don't know if either option would actually solve the problem.

A temporary solution could maybe be to roll up a small towel and stuff it between the shade and painted area of the rollbar?

The velcro idea sounds really good and you're probably right about just putting something soft like a towel in between the shade and the plastic. Next time I take a long highway trip I'll probably just keep the top up anyway so I don't get too beat up by the wind.

I use two of these:



$1.00 / piece, and some thin marine rope, over the roll bar and wrapped around the head rest bar a couple times. Tight as a kite. I still have the hard top on, but pretty sure you can find an anchor point without it more suitable than the head rest. Was doing 160 k/ph over the weekend. Nothing. More noise from the CAI than anything. Clip them to to the outside of the cut out they have. Works like a charm. 2 door mind you.

I have the JKini.. theres noise at speed but definitely way less than a bikini top makes so I'm pretty happy with it. Mines pulled tight in all directions and I went a little left of the instructions at the end when securing the back because it seems that you have to have the hard top all the way off to install it per SWS's instructions... Its actually TIGHTER the way I installed it than it probably would have been they way they tell you to...

i installed the trailmesh on my jk over the weekend. I am very pleased with it. I drove it around town and no flapping. I got the one that goes up to the back seat headrests but does not wrap around them.

I got the version that go over the backseats on my JKU. I also get the flapping from the center section hitting the sound bar. Kinda wish there was something from the mfg'r for a fix..

Other than that - this is a GREAT product..

Smile Best addition I've bought

Good protection from Texas sun. Even provides some shelter in the rain.

Installed the trailmesh on Friday. Drove a few hours at highway speed yesterday with door windows up but side and back plastic off. Noticed a difference in the wind and didn't have to wear a hat for sun protection. Loving it. Just have to work on the side fit a bit as I was getting some flapping.

On my JKU I've tried a rolled up towel, pool noodles and small padded bar with foam sheets (heavier so I hoped it would stay put) between the shade and the roll bar but in the wind, they all come loose and fall out. I even tried rigging a spider ball through the hard top grommets but couldn't get it tight enough. The problem is that you need to be able to snug the shade in the center to the roll bar and there is just no good way to do that and preserve the ability to use the hard top.

I am also wondering if this is more a JKU issue due to the increased length. I also notice it flaps more after being in the sun when it seems to be more malleable.
