Spiderweb Shade size choices

I am pretty much ready to get a Spiderweb, but I keep going around on which one to get. I am going between the extended top and the full wrap. I have kids who do ride sometimes so just the bikini choice is out.

How much does the extended top cover over the back seat? I like it because it looks like it will still feel "open" and I would leave it on pretty much all the time. Con would be how much of the back it doesn't cover.

Full wrap (4 pieces) is an option, but I don't know how much I would like the back "window" area. I don't want to open the top only to enclose it in again. There is a two piece option which would give more coverage for the back seat and if I wanted to run with just bikini I could. How much does this block view out the back? Again, I don't want to take the top off just to enclose it again with something else.

Feedback and experience (and pics!) would help a lot.

Thanks!

I have this one and it covers the back seat just fine.

I have that one ^ also. Actually I was in the back seat last night and was comfortable. My head wasn't hitting it but if I were a few inches taller it would be in the way. I'm 5'9". It covers great.

I have ^ that one as well. It completely covers the back seat. I have a 12 year old and it is great. I tried sitting back there but my head hit. Luckily, I don't normally have adults riding in the back.

I have that top as well. As the directions say that come with it - you can mount it any way you like. I figure if you want to cover just the driver and passenger, you could fold it on itself once and voila. I love mine.

I have that one as well. I can honestly say that I wish all the things made for jeeps and other vehicles were as great as this product. I will be doorless and topless at least 6 months out of the year so I will definately get my money's worth out of it.

I have twins (16 months). Works great. Gives shade and actually cuts down on the wind a bit. I have folded it for adults to sit as well as used it for a windjammer (didn't really care for it like that much). Greatest thing is you can keep that sucker on even with the top up!

That's what I was wondering. One of the boys is in a seat still so I was wondering how far back it covers.

Just curious, why are the seats turned opposite directions?

Oh, and extra kudos for Sooners!

My son meets the weight requirements to face forward his sister doesn't so I keep her rear facing. Now they "recommend" you wait until age 2 to forward face but they don't usually go very far when in the jeep...plus our doc gave the "ok" to forward face him.

By the way, mine isn't "trail mesh". I think trail mesh has a tighter weave but I've loved ours just fine!

So I received my Trailmesh version and wen to put it on. Pics and instructions show a grommet at the footmans loop mount on the windshield frame. Web doesn't have a grommet in this position. Is there a different way to mount or is mine missing a grommet? Spiderwebshade logo at the back.

Mine has a grommet in the center on the front, it also came with a smaller spider ball for that grommet.

Did you get a smaller bungee ball?

Installing a grommet isnt too big a job, if you have a boat / canvas shop in your town they might not even charge you to do one.

Spidershade is a bitch to get a hold of on the phone.
