Smile Sun Screens

I am having difficulty finding a sun screen that fits properly for my 2015 JKU Blue Jeep. I have last ordered from Quadratec who sent me a sun screen made by Dirty Dog. It doesn't fit properly. I would love any suggestions anyone may have. Thank you!

I just got a jeeptopsusa screen. I prefer the bucKles over the bungees, looks a little cleaner. I like it but have a twill supertop nx on the way so we'll see how often it's in use.

I have the Spiderwebshade. Had to put some bolts thru the sound bar holes to help with the flapping. Also added more grommets on the sides to help with flapping. Plus it's a frickin PITA trying to get the freedom panel bolts thru the grommet holes when putting the hard top back on, as they are almost an inch off center. Did I get an defective screen? I don't know, but as you can see I don't recommend this product. I will be getting the one from jeeptops when the time comes.

I want one just for the front seat, and I don't want to have to take the back of the top off for installation. I want to just pop the freedom tops & put the screen up. Whacha got for me?

I went with the Rugged Ridge sunscreen. I leave it in place with my Freedom Panels. I have to fasten three front straps but that's it. There are several sunscreens available and they are pretty similar. I went with the Rugged Ridge because I stumbled across one discounted on Ebay. So far, it's one of the best mods I've made.

I run with the full Shadecage by SpiderWebShade. When either of the tops are on, I roll the side shades down and bungee them into a bedroll. The mesh top stays on all the time because it blocks the heat when its not being used as a sun shield. For the soft top, I leave off the 2 small outer front bungees for the footman loops and leave the center front connected. When running under the hard top the center front bungee is off and the outer loops are on. Much, much cooler that way here in Arizona. You could also do this with their JKini that covers only the front but the heat reduction won't be as great.

+1 for Spiderwebshade. Fits great, works great, durable.

Keeps the wind down, keeps the interior cooler when sitting, stops the sunburn on my forehead, stops too much sun from beating on the interior.

None of them look like they really fit properly. But they stretch out and settle into place after a bit.

Mixed feelings here for Spiderwebshade.

On my old JKU, I had the Spiderwebshade that covered the front and rear seats, and loved it. Zero flapping, zero complaints.

Recently purchased a 2 door JK, and immediately bought a Spiderwebsahde Jkini for it. (The back seat is rarely used.) This top flaps quite a bit on top of the sound bar. It's annoying enough that I've already taken it off a few times. The one on the JKU never came off until I sold the Jeep.

I have the Spiderwebshade Full on my 2 door JK. The seatbelts flap way more than the shade does and the only time it ever bothered me was driving on the Interstate with a 50 mph crosswind.

I forgot about the seatbelt flap... Get some of the cheap seatbelt pads, goodbye flap noise. I got black ones, can barely see them and I completely forgot I put them on

My 2dr Shadecage never flaps. However when I first pulled my hard top the grommets were tapping on the soundbar because I had forgotten about the two Velcro squares that I had thrown in the glove box. Once the Velcro was installed the top has been silent ever since, even when the crosswinds strong enough to bow the hood on the freeway. Perhaps it's the aerodynamics of the short JKini vs the extra long top shade that comes with the shadecage.

Great tip, thanks!

Mostly the noise comes from the back seat belts which are coming out this weekend.

I have used this company's sun shade for last seven vehicles. They are made to fit specific vehicles and in my experience they have every time. Also cuts heat better than any I've ever tried...

Not what's being discussed in this thread. The discussion is about overhead sun shades such as these.

Can you install the Spiderweb without taking the back roof off?

Yes, with some effort. I did it on my 2dr when I got it so that the mesh so it would work with the freedom panels off. There are three extra short spider balls for the three front footman loop attachments. With the hard top on you would use two (or just one with soft top) and put the extra in the glove box.

On my 2dr with the extra long top shade, I used two Harbor Freight 'Spider balls' at the front corners because the trim cornice and padding really stretched out the stock ones and the HF ones are both longer and have less 'bungee' pull. (They are weaker but they fit better.) I also used them at the rear of the sound bar where again the trim cornice plus the padding really stretches out the stock ones. I would think that the same would happen on a 4dr JKU but I have no real-world experience to guide you there. You can temporarily pull the freedom panels to install the two front corner attachments, if you need to. I would think that on a JK4D (long top on a 4dr) you could access the sound bar from the open rear doors much easier than I did on my 2dr. Fishing the mesh between the soundbar and the roof is just an exercise in patience once you remove the freedom panels 'thumb screws'. Be sure to keep the Velcro that comes installed over the grommets if you are going to reinstall the big 'thumb screws' for the freedom panels because that it what keeps the mesh from going 'clickity -clack' going down the road when you take the top off. Of course if you leave the screw out (as many do) then just keep the Velcro where it is.

One other thing about the extra long version is that it shades the rear window. On a 2dr that is a good thing with a non-tinted (clear) rear window like my soft top has. With my hard top's tinted glass, I folded up the rear part over itself and then attached the spiderballs to keep it there because the shade plus the tinted glass was too dark to see through. My TJ had tinted windows on the soft top and I folded that shade cage up for the same reason.

Black blocks the most sun. The other colors less so. I have some regrets about buying the blue but She Looks Good!
