Not that particular one, but one I got from QuadraTech about 2 years ago. Love it. Blocks a lot of sun, making it much more comfortable (I burn easily and fight skin cancer constantly).
Mine is starting to fray a bit around the edges and don't think it'll last another 2 years. But I won't hesitate to get another.

Nope, but I have got the TJ Kini from Spiderwebshade for my YJ and put it on around 80°F and love it. You just put it on with bungeeballs, nothing else needed for installation (5min).

Yes, and it probably interferes with the top. You may need to remove the channel to put the top up (I'm really not sure) but my top hasn't been on in 2 years now, so not an issue for me.
It's only a matter of pulling or installing the 2 piece channel with probably 7-8 small screws.

Al, just noticed that you have a soft top. I'm betting that the mesh I use would fit right into the channel you now use for your top. I have a hardtop for my YJ, so was using a narrow minded view of the rail. Sorry about that. I can shoot you a pic if you'd like.

283,
My soft top is the Sunrider and there isnt a header channel on the windshield frame. It looks like the one i asked about and the one Lancelot referenced would allow it to stay in place with the soft top on. Thanks for the info.

Exactly, because the Shade is the same height as the rollbar, the Soft Top is located slightly higher.

But anyway you can put it on or down easily within 5 minutes.

Looking at the installation instructions on the Quadratec site, the header channel isn't needed.

That's correct. I was asking 283 if his needed a header.

I bought just the TJKini (just protecting the front seats from the sun) for the very hot & sunny days, but the spidercage would take away the open air feeling too much for me.

But there are shades in any sizes, so its up to you, how much sun protection/open air feeling you want to get.

I have a lime green Spiderwebshade shade cage for a yj I would let go pretty reasonably. Looks great on white but we painted our white Jeep lime green and it doesn't match. If you are interested pm me. It will fit on under the soft top and with the sides and the back it cuts the wind down a lot.

Im not sure lime green is my color. Ideally, I'd want spice. I'll probably go with black.

I have got a tan Shade. It fits very well to my spice interior.

In my opinion a grey or white shade would look great on a white YJ as well.

+1 for spiderwebshade. I bought mine 2 years ago and as soon as the weather turns the top comes off and the spider shade goes on. Helluva deal too, I think mine was under $80, covers front and back seat.
