reissc1 I've been running the the full front and rear version for the 4 Door for about a year now. We absolutely love it. I just received the additional cargo cover for when the little ones ride in the back. It will help to completely protect them from the sun. I have never taken it off since the day I first put it on. As mentioned before, the only trouble is getting the freedom top bolts back in. You just have to pull the top hard in which ever direction is needed to line them up.

Take a look at their website. it says it can be used for multiple configurations. It doesn't define what those configurations are and it is left up to interpretation. However, because of the way it attaches, I would see no reason you couldn't move it to the rear and it be perfectly functional.

IJ Darbe I purchased this particular jkini for my Islander because of this particular thread. I like the fact that it does not have to be removed in order to put the hard top on or the freedom panels. Great buy and an inexpensive price.

Very easy to take off. It goes on with little bungie balls.

Its my understanding that it can be easy to take off if you wanted to.

I really wish the grommets were at least twice the size. Getting the bolts to line up is a HUGE PITA!

But we still love ours!

cmaggi2 Wouldnt the longer shade protect a lil more from fading from UV rays too? That's another reason I ordered the full shade besides the kids.

i like the hidden look of the jkini over the others that extend to the rear seats. but i'm afraid the sun will still come in with the jkini version unless the sun is right over top of you. i would rarely have passengers in the rear, so i'm not concerned about shading the rear seats. my only concern is driver and passenger
Look at the pic on the website- if the sun is behind you- you have the seats and the soundbar blocking some of the sun too. There is a gap if you order the small one- but its insignificant. I did once get a sunburn in a rectangle on my neck. It was pretty funny. Once out of 6 mos. of use in constant California sun- no biggie.
I would however, probably order the next bigger one if I did it again. (SW1 JK-2D) I don't carry passengers much either- but for that rare occasion, plus keeping stuff in the cargo area shaded, plus keeping trail dust out- I'd get the bigger one.

I don't have a hard top, but my grommets are being used with the ball rope through the holes.

I read a few places where people that bought that one did complain about the sun coming from the rear and wished they had gotten the bigger one. U can get the one that covers the front and back but doesn't come all the way down in the back like the full version.

DCR-13JK I got the full cause my little 4 y/o girl loves to ride with the top off and her skin is like porcelain. So I wanted to protect her a bit.
04-09-2013 04:25 PM
thebman90 Awesome. I am really looking forward to getting it. I think I am going with the one that covers the front and rear.
04-09-2013 04:24 PM
Gladi8r Do you have to take your hardtop completely off to install JKini or can you do it by just taking off the Freedom Panels? Also, I have an SPOD installed, will that be a problem? Thanks!
04-09-2013 04:04 PM
DCR-13JK Thanks to thread started. First I had seen of these. Really liked what I saw and read about them and just ordered a jk full cover version trail mesh 2 minutes ago. Can't wait to get it on.
04-09-2013 03:37 PM
legitposter I love my jkini. It stays on, over the front, including when the freedom panels are installed.

I totally thought I was in a sunsetter retractable awning commercial there for a second!

I may push the button on one next payday

BeachJeepJK Best and one of the cheapest upgrades to date. I only run it with my soft top, but it appears the ahrd top can be utilized with no issues. You'll love it. I have the full version, stops the blazing sun and has visibility. I recommend surprise paracord straps as well...really pulls it all together with the color combinations available.

I left the bolts out all fall and winter. Didn't have any problems during rain or anything. I don't plan on putting them back in.

JeepHerz Get it. You'll love it. The UV protection does work and it will cool your Jeep immensely. I drive around in 90 + degrees with the top off but Spidey Shade on and am comfortable. It WILL take away from the "open" feel- but keeping cool and not worrying about slathering myself in sunscreen it well worth it.

I got mine in Moab too. Just need it to stop snowing so I can take the top off and install this shade.
