Question: I have a new Rampage top. Can I put a SS or DD shade top on and leave it on while the top is on as well?

Tried that yesterday and the guy said it should work. I wanted a real world experience.

I went ahead and bought the full safari for SWS. I wish they made a two piece and could have gone with DD, but really like to support American companies if possible. Also when I bought my JKini I ordered Saturday morning and it was delivered on Monday so I know their CS and turn around time is great.

That is what I did with mine. I ran the bunjee through the hole and it works great.

Curious about long versus standard length. Would you imagine needing to disconnect rear ties when using soft top? Especially for rear visibility or to get in cargo compartment from rear seat?
I just can't make up my mind.

Kramer, did you go with full?

I have 2Door JK, if you think that makes a difference

I have the Dirty dog and have run it for the last three years, all the way for PA to Fla. fit and finish is superb. and after all the abuse its seen it still looks brand new three years later.

I will say SWS has the best turnaround time. Ordered on Wednesday and received on Friday.

Pulling the trigger on a DD as soon as I get the discount code from Ryan. For me, I still want some sun to get through, but would like a little bit of shade. Plus, the option of leaving the rear piece on for the dogs, while taking the front off, was a big advantage.

I have the Dirty Dog and really like that it has straps so I can tighten it as much as I need instead of the bungy cords.

I've been running the Dirty Dog under both the hardtop and softtop and really love it. I got the gray one which makes the inside of the jeep a little lighter as well.

I want to test out the DD I purchased but I have had a bad experience since the beginning with Dirty dog.

1. I ordered one of the sun shades at the cost of $170 and never received any kind of confirmation email.

2. I have no status of the item through the entire process as I also never received an email when the item is shipped.

3. The product finally arrives today the 30th.

Read the directions and watched a video on how to install. At the very beginning where you pass the front part between the door frame and roll bar to attach to the plastic window frame with the little hook, I barely pull on the bungee and it comes out of the strap. and when I mean barely I mean I only put enough force to just start stretching the bungee and it pops out of the strap and the sewn threads are loose like it was not sewn properly.

I've emailed support and hopefully they will remedy my situation. I know things happen sometimes but as I told them I am slowly losing faith.

Many good tips and links here...

Here's mine:

I've had SWS on my JKURs, and for around $20 (grommet kit and more ball bungees from Home Depot) I add a few more grommets and bungees to stretch and hold where I needed it.

Get what works for you, i.e. color, needs, etc... eventually, everything wears out, stretches, etc... and go with it.

Has anyone gone with a white shade? I've got a white JKUR and that's the only color other than black that I would consider. Wondering if the white will make it cooler (and show a lot of dirt)?

Thanks
