i like the hidden look of the jkini over the others that extend to the rear seats. but i'm afraid the sun will still come in with the jkini version unless the sun is right over top of you. i would rarely have passengers in the rear, so i'm not concerned about shading the rear seats. my only concern is driver and passenger
Look at the pic on the website- if the sun is behind you- you have the seats and the soundbar blocking some of the sun too. There is a gap if you order the small one- but its insignificant. I did once get a sunburn in a rectangle on my neck. It was pretty funny. Once out of 6 mos. of use in constant California sun- no biggie.
I would however, probably order the next bigger one if I did it again. (SW1 JK-2D) I don't carry passengers much either- but for that rare occasion, plus keeping stuff in the cargo area shaded, plus keeping trail dust out- I'd get the bigger one.

Wouldnt the longer shade protect a lil more from fading from UV rays too? That's another reason I ordered the full shade besides the kids.

I really wish the grommets were at least twice the size. Getting the bolts to line up is a HUGE PITA!

But we still love ours!

This is on the short list. Is it easy to take off as put on? Just for those days when you want the full airflow.

Its my understanding that it can be easy to take off if you wanted to.

Taking it off is much quicker than putting it on, simply because you don't have to fight the spider balls.

Very easy to take off. It goes on with little bungie balls.

Can you use the JKini for the back instead of the front?

I purchased this particular jkini for my Islander because of this particular thread. I like the fact that it does not have to be removed in order to put the hard top on or the freedom panels. Great buy and an inexpensive price.

Take a look at their website. it says it can be used for multiple configurations. It doesn't define what those configurations are and it is left up to interpretation. However, because of the way it attaches, I would see no reason you couldn't move it to the rear and it be perfectly functional.

I've been running the the full front and rear version for the 4 Door for about a year now. We absolutely love it. I just received the additional cargo cover for when the little ones ride in the back. It will help to completely protect them from the sun. I have never taken it off since the day I first put it on. As mentioned before, the only trouble is getting the freedom top bolts back in. You just have to pull the top hard in which ever direction is needed to line them up.
