      Supreme Sun Protection. One of the worst things you could do for yourself would be give up the comfort you like and enjoy for shade. If you are at a place where you need some shade in your Jeep, but you want to keep the cool breeze option readily available, choose the TruShield HalfShade Top. This top is specifically made for the 1997-2002 TJ model and it allows you and your passengers to be shielded from the sun, but you can still enjoy the breeze outside. This top comes with built-in storage pockets that are weather resistant as well, so you or your passengers can keep your smaller personal items safe while in tow. The TruShield HalfShade Top will provide your Jeep with an aggressive, yet functional look overall.

      Can Take Abuse. The TruShield HalfShade is finished in a quality PVC coating to ensure that it can take a beating. You can head off the black top with this top on and never have to worry about a thing. This HalfShade is one of the best on the market and will provide supreme protection.

      Weather Resistant Pockets. The TruShield HalfShade Top is made from some of the best materials on the market. The top itself if made from a PVC coated polyester that is sure to hold up over time and provide you with the supreme protection and durability you expect. The pockets on the top are coated with a polyurethane finish, which keeps them water resistant, even if you find yourself in a situation where your Jeep’s interior is wet.

      No Drilling Required. One of the nice things about the TruShield HalfShade Top is that you do not have to drill to install it and you do not need to use any type of special tools. The top installs quickly and easily using the bungee cord system that makes use of the factory roll bars. You can expect installation to take about five minutes total.

      Application. The TruShield HalfShade top is specifically designed for use on 1997-2002 TJ Wrangler models.

        A little extra shade so my girls don’t get burned up riding around all day. Fits great, easy and fast install(5min). Has held up to 70mph in the highway. Perfect!

        A little pricey, but good and effective.

        This product works exactly as advertised. The carabiner that connects to the windshield header rattles annoyingly in the wind. As I do not plan to remove this mesh top really at all, I replaced it with some paracord. No more rattling. Expect a fair share of flapping in the wind. While the connector bungies are secure, they do not keep the top taut. This is not enough of a problem to discourage you from buying this product, just know what you're in for.

        Very good product

        The product installed quite easily took me less than five minutes to put on, I think it took longer to unbox

        TruShield Shade Top

        I have several friends that purchased these type tops but without the front pockets and they are jealous. My Jeep is not a daily driver so once I installed the Shade Top I have never had to put my top up. I live on the coast in TX and this top has been a game changer for me for our year long summer we have. I highly recommend this product.

        Awesome product!

        Bought this for my 98 TJ for a trip to Silver Lake sand dunes. Installed within minutes and kept us in the shade! Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to take the top off but also to block out the sun on hot summer days. Also stayed on no problem at highway speeds.

      Does this Top fit a TJ Unlimited or is that a larger size?

      • This is designed for the standard TJ. The Unlimited or LJ has a longer body and wheel base. Since this top installs with bungees it would fit an LJ however we have an option for the LJ here:

      do you have to remove it to install the hard top/soft top. or can it be left on. it looks like the frt latches would be an issue. thanks

      • It would be best to install the TruShield FullShade Top with your hard top or soft top removed and then reinstall the top after.
