Spiderweb Shade

Does anyone have any experience with the spiderweb shades? Do they actually work, or do they only last like a year or two. I don't want to drop 70 bucks every year on one of these things.

Thanks

Put mine on last summer. Love the thing! Plenty of air without baking. The spiderballs on the rear of the sport bar were a PIA but I think it was worth it. I didn't notice any fading so far. Switched to hardtop for winter and didn't need to take the shade off.

Was it real loud or was it just barely noticeable?

I've had the TJKini Spiderweb shade on mine for 3 years now. I even keep it on during the winter under my hardtop or soft top. It pretty much sits in the sun all spring and summer, and so far it has held up great. I haven't noticed a lot of extra noise from it. It sure keeps the sun off and still provides ventilation.

Have had mine going on 3 years. I like. I have the long one that goes over the back seat too. If I sit in the back it hits me in the head. Easy fix....I just slide it forward on the roll cage. My 6 year old niece has no problems with it in the back seat. The balls that hold it on the bars are getting weak..but you can find those at the hardware store. It is on the Jeep 24/7 under the soft top and hard top. Makes getting to the front latches hard. But I live. There is a little flapping noise...but helps keep the airflow not so turbulent.

Have the full Spiderweb cage and I love it. Only think i don't like when the whole back section is in place its hard to see out the tinted soft top windows. So i take those pieces out when not in use. The piece of the front seats stays on all the time.

Bought mine for my JK last summer. Best money spent. I bought the SW1 model (covers both front and back seats) and it fits like a glove.

One of the earlier post regarding fitment of the rear seat spiderball is a PIA is right... they are a little hard but once you get them on you're good to go and don't have to worry about taking these things off when you switch between hard or soft top.
