SpiderWeb Shade Top
 
Noob here,
Got my '02 TJ a few weeks ago and I am loving it! I am excited to take the top off in the summer but still want a little shade and breeze so i was thinking about getting a SpiderWeb Shade top. My only concern is head room. I am 6'5" and it looks like the shade top is about halfway down on the roll bar. That would be no good for this tall guy. Anyone have one and want to share about amount of head room?

I have a SpiderWeb Shade top and love it. What I also have is a "top prop" that mounts to the rollbars and arches above my front seats. It stretches the soft top tight and encourages the water to roll off rather than pool on top. If you get one of those and then stretch the SpiderWeb shade over it, you should have plenty of headroom. That takes care of the issue for you as a driver. But since we're on the topic of SpiderWeb Shades and headroom, I should probably point out that I have the safari top version and headroom can be a problem for a tall person in the rear seat.

Thanks for the advice. I usually don't have the backseat down so I am not too worried about the back. I never thougt of a top prop. Thanks!
