Has anyone gone with a white shade? I've got a white JKUR and that's the only color other than black that I would consider. Wondering if the white will make it cooler (and show a lot of dirt)?

Many good tips and links here...
I've had SWS on my JKURs, and for around $20 (grommet kit and more ball bungees from Home Depot) I add a few more grommets and bungees to stretch and hold where I needed it.
Get what works for you, i.e. color, needs, etc... eventually, everything wears out, stretches, etc... and go with it.

I want to test out the DD I purchased but I have had a bad experience since the beginning with Dirty dog.
1. I ordered one of the sun shades at the cost of $170 and never received any kind of confirmation email.
2. I have no status of the item through the entire process as I also never received an email when the item is shipped.
3. The product finally arrives today the 30th.
Read the directions and watched a video on how to install. At the very beginning where you pass the front part between the door frame and roll bar to attach to the plastic window frame with the little hook, I barely pull on the bungee and it comes out of the strap. and when I mean barely I mean I only put enough force to just start stretching the bungee and it pops out of the strap and the sewn threads are loose like it was not sewn properly.
I've emailed support and hopefully they will remedy my situation. I know things happen sometimes but as I told them I am slowly losing faith.

I have the Dirty Dog and really like that it has straps so I can tighten it as much as I need instead of the bungy cords.
I've been running the Dirty Dog under both the hardtop and softtop and really love it. I got the gray one which makes the inside of the jeep a little lighter as well.

|StarWolve||Pulling the trigger on a DD as soon as I get the discount code from Ryan. For me, I still want some sun to get through, but would like a little bit of shade. Plus, the option of leaving the rear piece on for the dogs, while taking the front off, was a big advantage.|

I just can't make up my mind.
Kramer, did you go with full?
I have 2Door JK, if you think that makes a difference

|DallasJKU||I went ahead and bought the full safari for SWS. I wish they made a two piece and could have gone with DD, but really like to support American companies if possible. Also when I bought my JKini I ordered Saturday morning and it was delivered on Monday so I know their CS and turn around time is great.|

|KT24||Anyone know if you can get the DD somewhere other than the DD website. Just got a new JK with hardtop, and am heading down to Florida on Thursday for 2 weeks of vacation. Trying to get the DD before we head down, but know it will take too long to be shipped to TN from o'Canada.|

|DallasJKU||I was going to go with a DD in the rear but I think now I will go with the full SWS instead. I really like my JKini, but need coverage for dog. Just don't want something that flaps too much. I like products made in USA also.|

Glad you guys got a kick out of the pic haha.
I'm about to order another Spiderweb Shade for my future JKU. Just need to sell my CJ5 and Toyota Celica, then the JKU is mine! Could take months, so I'm starting up a collection of mods to put on her once I actually do get her.
Haven't seen a DD, but I can definitely attest to the quality of the Spiderweb Shade. Makes things a LOT nicer in the Georgia summer heat!!!

|outback||My SS also flapped quite a bit at high speeds so I went to home depot and bought brass toilet tank bolts because they were long enough and had large heads and flat washers which I put through the holes in the sound bar. I also went to harbor freight and bought a grommet kit and 4 bungee balls. I put 2grommets, one on each side of the SS logo at the back and used the bungee balls to secure. Now my SS hardly moves, even on the expressway.|

I just purchased my second Spiderwebshade. The first one lasted 4 years, and is actually still in pretty good condition. I'll probably use the old one as a cargo net.
I've seen the Dirty Dog ones and they look nice, but I've been so happy with my Spiderwebshade that I saw no reason to switch to something else when it came time for another one.

We love our Spiderweb Shade on our JKU. No flapping at all. A complete bitch to get the last couple of Spiderballs on though.

|DallasJKU||Will another JKini work for back portion??|

PS I have Safari straps on my Jeep's rear year round.
