Good Summer Mod?

I think this is a really good idea. I was wondering if anyone has one or anything close to it? I was also wondering if any one has a spidershade? I really can't decide between either one. I like the idea of the jammock since compared to the price of a bikini top with the no drill channel its around the same price, but can hold wieght. I was also wondering is spidershade even still in business? The discription of the spider shade mentions 2010, which is were I get a little worried.

Bottom of the spider web page is up to 2013, I wouldn't think it would be an old page.

Neither top is a real "top" just a summer top. A bikini top will actually keep some elements off of you and the rig.

How often will you crawl on top of your jeep to chill?
I have a friend now, trying to win the free jammock on facebook. You can check out the contest and enter, although it ends tomorrow.

Definitely cool ideas, but ask your self how practical are they and how often would you use them.

I'm not really looking for a full replacement top. I'm looking just for something to use around town on the nice days and have fun with. Any other ideas

I like my Spiderweb shade so much I sold my Safari top cause I never used it. It's quieter, keeps 60% of the UV's off you and is easy to install/remove. You can even leave it on if you have a factory soft top.

Hey folks, I'm James, the inventor and owner of the Jammock. Of course you don't "need" the Jammock (or SpiderShade), the same way you don't "need" lots of other non-essentials, but they're fun toys to have.

I look at it like this way:
1.) What's the cost vs. use ratio? (will I use this enough to justify spending the money?)
Answer: This one is up to you.

2.) What's the upkeep cost? (If I buy it and use it [or don't use it] what are my lifetime costs to keep up the product?)
Answer: Zero, the Jammock is low, low maintenance.

3.) What's the upside? Why would I buy this?
Answer: The SpiderShade looks great. It is a very attractive product, but it has only one function, and that's to keep some sun off of you when you're topless. Also, each SpiderShade piece can only be installed on its specific area.

The Jammock has a universal size that can go on many places on your Jeep, and is multi-functional (load-bearing soft-top, windjammer, sun shade, water-resistant bikini, extra storage area when another top is up, and tonneau cover [this on is a stretch, but it is possible]).

Here are some pictures demonstrating the versatility of the Jammock.

The tonneau cover is a bit of a stretch. The ladder picture is of two Jammocks.

Picture on the bottom right is with 3 Jammocks, the one on the rear roll bars can be used as a lounge chair.

Let me know if you have any questions. Check out more of our pictures at Jammock: it's a hammock for your Jeep. - Home

Thanks for the interest!

I've had the Spiderwebshade for a couple of years now and love it.
I suppose I could lay in it too, just never thought too.

I do not recommend this and I'm sure it will void the SpiderShade warranty or end up being expensive.

Ha! Ok, it's just that I had seen that someone on another thread had actually done something like that with unintended effects.

Haven't run across the Jammock before. You guys get an A+ for ingenuity.

That would have to be a winter top here in the desert, because if you sat up there in the summer you would just cook.

You guys are all right! I've spent a lot of time in deserts and I agree with you, this would be "slowpainfuldeathbed." But if it's hot out, get some shade, and relax. The Jammock puts you in pretty much a perfect posture to read or snooze. You're also only a few inches away from whatever frosty beverage you've put in a cup holder on the footman loop.

I'm probably going to go with the jammock just because it of its versatility. But I do like the price point of the VDP top. I might actually go with both idk yet but it would be sweet if you looked into getting jammock in black since I'm going with the blackout theme on my jeep.

I'll tell you, I'm recommending this to some of my friends. I have some spreader bars in my cage that preclude me using it but it is very very cool!

We had a winner in our Jammock Spring Contest! Jim from New York posted a great picture of himself carrying his beautiful bride over his running boards and into a new life of trails and mud. Check it out at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jammo...51951441504657
