x2. I have the same mount and with the hi-lift boot on the top bracket actually clamps the top of the boot shut pretty well.
Also, I noticed you went with a black jack on your red jeep and even used a lock that matches your color scheme. Nice!
I put mine on a few weeks ago and forgot to post it here, so:

Thanx a lot not as bad as I thought. Watched a couple of YouTube videos and went with the wet application method.

Took my grill off today and it was really simple. Was my first time so I was a bit nervous. Popped the plastic pieces under the hood then watched a quick YouTube video for the bottom. It's literally as simple as just pulling the bottom straight out and off!

Drove it nekkid for about six hours to take the kiddo to summer camp. Nothing like a Jeep tan line/ sunburn. (just on my left knee because I had it hanging out the door)

Happy Fathers Day. This is such a great picture. I also spent time with my kids and the jeep hitting some muddy trails. No top but the doors on. Managed to get some mud inside.

The prep was kind of a pain. Spraying was not bad. Just have to take your time and out on at least 4 costs. Took about 3 1/2 hrs from the time I put the jack under the jeep until the final coat. Then they had to dry for at least 4 hrs.

I had a busy weekend, so several things here at once.

Extended the axle breathers in front and rear. Best part was that the wife got involved and did most of the work.



Family got me a blue Spiderweb shade for Father's Day so we took the top off and installed. It's really nice! We went out on the trails for about 5 hours and no one got sun burned.





I wasn't ready to put the top back on, so I made a ghetto trail cover for any passing thunderstorms for overnight. Worked great, no puddles!



Last, I picked up some Turtle Wax Ice liquid and applied it to the hard top with my daughter. Went on super easy and looked fantastic.

Happy Father's Day!

Real nice work! It's a PITA when I just put small window decals on (I hate the air bubbles), I could not imagine the fun this decal wad to put on!

Not at all, real easy. Pull some pins from the top and pull the grill straight out. Should take about 5-10 minutes.

I took it out and it did sound louder than I had expected. Not sure I'm happy with it. I was told it would quit down in after a while. I'll see. Hope I didn't waste $400

Used the Spiderwebshade JKini this weekend out on the beach. Best 60 bucks I ever spent. Kept it nice and shaded inside, yet still could enjoy the top off. Wondering if I should have just bought the full version! Lol

Ok, I didn't even notice that. Yes, they were velcroed with some of the best velcro I have ever seen. Had to take it almost completely back off to remove it. Of course, now even with the velcro off, the grommets don't want to line up correctly. Finally got it done, but I have another question. Anyone have trouble getting both back spiderballs connected. I can now get one, or the other but not both. Driving me nuts, however, for now I can live with just one being done and I have the hardtop back on again. As long as the front is snug for when the panels are off, I'm ok. I do think I'll call them today though. Thanks for the help.

FYI... The metal rings will scratch the paint on roll bar. I put small piece of electrical tape under them. I like the shade but hate the flapping.....
