SUN SHADE ON JEEP ALBRIGHT, TOP DOWN!

JEEP ALBRIGHT GOES TOP DOWN -- BUT STILL HAS PROTECTION FROM DIRECT SUN WITH SPIDERWEBSHADE

We installed the SpiderWebShade on Jeep Albright so we can go top down for the late spring and summer months, as long as the sun shines!  And what is cool is that it works just fine with our incredible Bestop SuperTop NX that we never really take all the way off, and our Safari Straps that serve as cargo netting.


The SpiderWebShade mesh top is well made, fits snug and doesn't flap around at high speeds.  We love it.



Looking from front to rear, this is how it fits.  Bungee ball cords hold the shade snug to your roll cage and Jeep upper structure.  This thing fits about anything.

Check out the fits, sizes and options for this skin-saving shade at:

We are top down and having a blast!
