I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com. This is my review of the Rugged Ridge full length Eclipse sun shade fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of this for both the two door and the four door body style, so make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. This top is for those of you who like that top down open air driving experience but don't want the full strength of the sun beating down on your head. The design of this means that you don't need a windshield header. It's a really easy install and it can stay installed underneath your hard top or your soft top. This is a little bit less expensive of a mesh top than some of the other ones on the market, however it should hold up pretty well and it'll definitely get the job done. The mesh material that this top is made of will block a lot of the UV rays while still giving you that open air driving experience. The way that this is designed has the straps and the bungees built right in. There's nothing separate from the top to lose or misplace when you have it uninstalled from the Jeep. Another really nice feature is that you don't need a header bar with this. That helps to keep the cost down a lot. This includes a carrying case so when you have it uninstalled from the Jeep you have a nice secure spot to store it in. Getting this top installed on your Jeep is really easy with the included and attached hardware. It wraps around the sport cage on the sides and in the back and attaches to the footman loops across the top of the windshield up front. Even though you can have this installed with the hard top or the soft top on the Jeep, it'll definitely help to have the other tops removed when you're actually installing this the first time. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes and you won't need any tools at all. Like I said before, this is less expensive than some of the top tier sun shades on the market. Some of those other ones come in some additional colors. They might have a little higher build quality or quality of materials. To be honest with you, this fit well, it installed easily, it looks good and it gets the job done while leaving a couple of dollars in your pocket for your next mod. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge full length Eclipse sun shade fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Great product, does its job!
Install was very straight forward, didn’t even have to look at the instructions. This product protects you and your passengers from the elements and gives you a layer of protection from the sun all while not disturbing the top down feel when you got the top downHelpful (2)

This sun shade does the trick
This sun shade was the perfect buy for my wrangler. Living in Arizona, the sun can be brutal and since I've put the shade on, I've definitely noticed a temperature difference while driving. It's not noisy at all while driving, easy to put on, and does the job if you're looking to block the sun on your commute, but keep the open-air feel. The shade/bungee straps sag a bit after some wear, but that's also expected to happen overtime from the heat/stretching.Helpful (2)

Does it block UV rays and/or does it really keep the sun from burning you?
Yes, the reinforced mesh will help protect you from harmful sun rays. We do have customer feedback showing this had worked at protecting them from getting burnt.
Does this cover both front and back seats?
Yes, the Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade will offer cover for both the front & back seats.
Hello, does it keep out both sun and rain from above?
This top is made of mesh, so it will filter out some sunlight but will not protect from the rain.
So.. we have a soft top 2 door.. will this be able to stay in place with the soft top up/closed? Looks exactly what I am looking for... just would prefer to leave in place when the full soft top is in place.
With the method this uses for installation, it is able to be kept installed year round, only needing the front section to be undone to flip back the top.
How much wind and circulation does this prevent? When I take my t tops off I feel like I'm getting beat up by the wind circulation. I feel like this will help but I'm just curious.
The Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade will provide some wind resistance, however this is not its primary design goal, and as such, it will not fully stop any wind circulation.
Yes, you can use the Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade. If you currently have a hard top, you may have to remove it to install the sun shade but after the item is installed you should be able use your hard top without removing the sun shade.
Hello, yes, you wont need anything else to be able to install this mesh top.
Hello, yes, this will work with the wrap around netting and you will be able to leave under your soft top.
Hi, I would not recommend taking this over posted highway speed limits. Not only for the sake of the shade but also for your own safety.
Yes, you'll have to remove your hardtop to install it initially, but once installed you can remove and install the top or just the panels without interfering with the sun shade.
