Most of them install with bungees and have all sorts of different configurations (hence why they don't offer instructions)...

For a standard mesh top, you put the bungee through the hole in the mesh and pull it tight until the ball hits the hole. Wrap the bungee around the roll bar and then pull it up over the ball end. Then shift it until it's in a position you like. Do that for ever single hole. The Spiderweb Shade I have included one tiny bungee that was smaller than the rest and that one goes through the little loop on the center of the windshield rail right above the rear-view mirror. Once you figure it out, the install will go very quickly and you'll understand why there were no instructions.

Btw...I just installed mine all the way along the top of the roll bars from front to back. The one I have could also be used as a "windjammer" top which you run over the driver and passenger seats and then run the top down by the sound bar and attach it vertically to the roll bar rails that run directly behind the seats. The only problem I had with this... it pulled tight against my seats causing my seat to always bounce forward when I leaned forward and also restricted access to the rear of my Jeep without getting out and walking to the back.

I have a 97 wrangler tj soft top and i purchased a Rampage mesh sun screen that just goes over driver and passanger seat. It does not have a hole for bungees but a plastic lip that inserts like the top. I think i may need a windshield header that may attach to my other header idk. If someone can attch pics that would be great... Would i have to keep taking it off to put my other top on? Do not have a garage.

http://www.rampageproducts.com/instr.../94301-top.pdf is probably what you want but if not go to Rampage Products and click on the part number you bought.

Idk how much you paid for that, but if it was much and you still have to buy parts to use it, I'd return it and buy a SpiderWeb... They're fast, easy and not expensive. You can also easily make your own if you are inclined to do so.
