I see his goes over the back seat, too, but Im comparing the front piece.

Yep, you got the wrong one, just like me.

Now mount that JK-kini reverse to the rear and your all set, that's where mine now is in the pics above.

Size question

So after failing to find a local source in MI for shade cloth (Lowes and HD don't carry it in northern states.. I have found an on line source that will make any size for me ...90 % ultra mesh type shade material with sewn hems and grommets ever 1 ' for under $20 for the TJkini and $30 for the SW1 plus $10 shipping. I'm going with the SW1 but not exactly sure how wide and long to order. I'm leaning to 45" x 58" but not sure how much stretch there is in the material. Can anyone tell me exactly how wide and long their SW1 is? Once I get it I will report back on the quality and source.

Thanks :thumbsup:

How do you like just covering the front? Does the sun beat down on you from the back?

Mine's just over the front and we get very little sun from the back due to the height of the seat backs plus the sound bar. Very happy with ours and typical summer temps here is 100.

I bought the SW1 Tj ultramesh and could not be happier. Pricing is great, company is a pleasure to deal with and had quick shipping. Its really high quality, easy to install and a lifesaver on hot days with no top/doors for pale folks like myself (saved myself alot of pain in sunburns). highly recommended.

I am just nervous I am going to feel "closed in" with it on.

One tip..if you order ask for them to make sure one grommet on the 44" side is placed in the middle to make sure it lines up better with the footman's loop on the front window frame... they normally space grommets every 12 inches.

I bought the SW1for my TJ and I am very happy. Driving home from Atlanta it was 94 degrees and the shade was a big improvement over topless. It still let you feel the open air and it cuts down on wind slightly. I really like that I can put the top up without removing the shade. I would definitely recommend it. I now run with the top down more than I used to in the hot FL sun.

I bought the bungee ball cords from Wall-mart in the hunting camping section ..not sure the size but if they are too long you you can also shorten them. They were cheap and one pack is enough.

I have the shade cage for the tj. The back comes down right to the top of the rear seat. Also have the side windows that come with it.

Do you keep the trailmesh on all year around? or do you put your top on during sep - march?

I just put my soft top up for the first time since I put it on> I put it up right over it. No problem and I think it helps with some sound. I'll probably start by leaving into on when I put my hardtop on as they do not have any head liner. It should help keep noise down and heat in. We will see...

Hi guys:

I have a TJ Hardop 2006, i was thinking to buy the rear both sides shades in Red to reduce little heat and to match the red colour touch of my interior..

Do you think it can be fit without removing the hard top?
