I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the FullShade Top, fitting all 4-door 2007 and up JKs. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this top which is a very simple one out of three wrenches, this will install on your Jeep in under a half an hour. This is designed to come on and off when you want to take it on and off, and it just installs with some bungee cords, so no tools necessary, but we'll talk a little bit more about the install in just a minute. We're also gonna talk about the construction and a few of the features of this top.A mesh top like this is for those of you who like to run without your top on, who want to have that open-air driving experience, but want a little bit of protection from the direct sun for you and your passengers. This will cover the entire area from the top of the windshield all the way to the back of the rear seat passengers. There is also a half-shade top if you're just looking for protection for the front seat passengers, but again, this is the full-shade top that gives you a full coverage. A mesh top like this will let the air in, it will let some sunlight in, but it will cut down on some of the sun and some of the UV that would otherwise be beating down on the top of your head and your shoulders, which can make it a little bit uncomfortable on those especially hot days. So, if you want that open-air driving experience, but a little bit of protection, a mesh top is a great option.And I do like this mesh top because it's a little bit less expensive than some of the other ones on the market, while still offering these zippered pockets which give you a spot for some additional gear, which is especially nice if you're running without doors on. You wanna make sure that your pocket stays empty so you don't lose anything out the doorway, so those zipper pockets do come in handy. Now, this is going to be less expensive than some of the other mesh tops on the market that don't use bungee cords to attach to the Jeep. There are some that use clips that are adjustable, and the only downside that I ever see to these bungee cords is that, eventually, the elastic can stretch out a little bit and this won't be held quite as taut, and the fact that you can lose these bungee cords if you're not careful where you put them. Now, storing them in this pocket when the top isn't on the Jeep is a good way to not lose them. However, if you are interested in one of these tops that has buckles and straps instead of the elastic, those options do exist on the market. However, they are going to be a little bit more expensive.As far as the construction goes, this is woven PVC material that is going to hold up well in the sun, it's gonna hold up well over time to flapping while you're driving on the highway, and overall, it is a well-built piece that is going to be strong. And of course, it has a polyester material, webbing material around the outside to ensure that nothing is going to fray, and of course, that's where you have your metal grommets which are where the elastic bungee cords are going to go through. As I've mentioned before, this does have these different pockets which isn't completely unique to Barricade. There are a few other brands that have these zipper pockets, but it is a nice place to put some additional gear, as I said before, especially if you're running without your doors. This will also come with all of the bungee cords.Now, the nice thing about a mesh top like this is there's no header, it doesn't wrap around the roll bars, so you can leave this installed underneath of your hardtop or your soft-top if you choose to. You can install this once leaving underneath any other top, that way you just pop your other top down and this is already in place. That's a really nice feature, especially when you compare this to a more traditional safari or bikini top that is solid, most of those do require header. With this, if you don't have that he

Easy install. Took longer to unzip the quarter panels and put the top down. The zipper pockets are awesome from ball caps and various small items.Helpful (2)

Good material. Well built. It is a good addition to my Jeep. The only problem I can’t lock the center lock on the the top. I keep it installed all the time even with the hard top on. I recommend it.Helpful (4)

I'm pleased with this purchase.
Does the job. Keeps the sun from beating down on hot sunny days. Easy to install alone but I think if I had recruited a second set of hands I could have placed it on more easily and evenly.Helpful (2)

The shade arrived on time and fits as described. My wife installed in less than 30 minutes. It doesn't flutter at 50 mph. (I haven't driven any faster than that with the shade in place). The materials and workmanship are topnotch. The shade provides ample protect from the Tucson sun and allows a excellent air circulation. Run, don't walk to get one of these.Helpful (3)

Nice top for the price
Easy to install, snug fit that doesn't flap even in high wind, blocks some UV rays/heat without taking away from open air feel running topless and doorless.Helpful (3)
Can this shade be installed without removing the hardtop in the back?
This can be installed with only removing the freedom panels yes.
How much sun does this block? % What percentage sun does this block? Is it closer to the DirtyDog which allows more through or the SpiderShade that lets very little?
Hello, the Barricade FullShade Top (07-17 Wrangler JK 4-Door) blocks around 70%-80% of sun rays.
Will this top stand up to light rain and provide some protection to occupants ?
So while this may stand up to some light rain, the rain would go through. This is designed as a sun shade to limit UV rays in the summer time while still giving you that open air feeling.
How much does this lower the height clearance in the cabin, vs having the hardtop installed? I'm 6ft 3" tall, and want to make sure when I have this shade installed, the top of my head isn't brushing against the shade. Thanks
We don't have specifics on the exactly difference in height between this top and a traditional hard top, but when installed this top will sit lower in height.
Does this reduce wind inside the car?
This FullShade Top would very minimally reduce wind in the jeep.
The TruShield HalfShade Top can be installed before, during, or after the Trektop install. this will secure to the rollbar using bungees and straps. The TruShield HalfShade Top is not designed to easily flip back.
Hello, yes, this top can be used on the highway.
The TruShield HalfShade Top should have all bungees attached when running with just this installed. With the hard top installed, removal of the two bungees will not cause any issues.
The TruShield FullShade Top can be installed under a hard top.
Hello, you will be able to keep this Shade top under your soft top.
Hello, yes, you will be able to use this on a 2015 JKU.
Hello, Yes the rain would go through. This is a sun shade which is designed to block harmful UV rays in the summer while still allowing for an open air feel. This is not designed to block any type of foul weather.
Yes, you can run this shade top with the doors on or off.
Yes, it will come with Bungee Cords for installation!
The Barricade HalfShade Top (07-17 Wrangler JK) could potentially be installed with just the freedom top portion removed, however it is not designed for the purpose. For this style of riding, I would recommend the RUGGED RIDGE ECLIPSE SUN SHADE (07-17 WRANGLER JK); Item #J25103, which can be found here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-eclipse-sunshade-jk-1357904.html.
