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.

Okay, I guess
Maybe I don't understand how this type of sun shade is supposed to work, but it didn't shade the sun at all. The whole reason I got this was to minimize sunlight from directly overhead when the sunrider is open. This shade didn't do it (I was still blinded). Kind of a bummer. I was also bummed that it lowered the ceiling, so to speak. I am a tall woman with most of my height coming from a long torso, so I sit up higher than most people. This sun shade was right on top of my head and I couldn't see how to adjust the straps to make it sit more on top of the roll bars. It's currently collecting dust in my trunk.Helpful (0)

Perfect for sunny weather
This is a great item to have during the warm months to get some air movement and a bit of shade with no burning! Took some effort to get installed but was worth it!Helpful (1)

Factory directions were kind of lame, although this is fairly easy to install if you don't over-complicate it, like I did. I ended up using the customer uploaded install directions found here. Anyway, breeze to install and I love it! Great addition for $50.Helpful (2)

Great Idea, Design Flaw from MFG
I'm really struggling with how to make this review fair. Almost everything about this sun shade is perfect, from how well it fits the profile of the Freedom Top opening to how well the product seems to be made, but there was one issue that makes it not so great. During the install, the front-mid passenger bungee that goes from the middle footman loop to the passenger footman loop broke when trying to get it to connect. It's due to a design flaw because the mfg didn't account for the fact that the middle windshield footman loop is NOT in he center of the windshield, but set about 2in off-center towards the driver. This means that the bungee that should make the sun shade taught on the passenger side is not long enough to reach and will break as mine did.Helpful (4)

Easy to install. Stays on even when soft top is closed.Helpful (2)
I was thinking of getting the shade for the two front seats. Can this sunshade be left in place even if the hard tops are in place? Thanks
Yes, once the sun shade is installed you would not need to remove it to reinstall your hard top. The sun shade will work in conjunction with a hard or soft top.
I understand that the hard top can be put back on with the sun shade in place, but can you initially install the sun shade with the hard top on, or does it have to be lifted off (referring to the hard top, not the freedom panels). 2017 JKU. Thanks
You will want to remove your hard top to fully and properly install the sun shade.
Can this Sun Shade be used across only the back seats in the Wrangler Unlimited?
The Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade (07-17 Wrangler JK) is designed to fit the front portion of the Jeep and may not fit correctly on the rear, due to the different shape the rear section has. I would recommend looking into a full sun shade like this https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-eclipse-shade-jk-1357905.html for your JKU.
Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade How are these for leather seats? I have leather in my Rubicon and would hate to have the sun fade them.
The Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade (07-17 Wrangler JK) works well to provide shade from the sun when you have your soft top down or your hard top off. The sun shade is not designed to protect your leather seats from fade or sun damage. If your looking to protect your seats from fading or sun damage I recommend either treating your leather or purchasing seat covers.
Will this work with the Sunrider top on a 2013 JK
This will work with any 07-18 JK Wrangler
This will work with the soft top on, and will allow for you to flip the top back, however doing so will be more difficult due to limited space.
We have this option that would be specific to the rear seats in the 4 door JK. https://www.extremeterrain.com/dirtydog-4x4-sun-screen-rear-jk-dd-s-jk4-07.html
This item will only work on the 07-18 JK Wranglers. This will also offer some shade from the sun, but it would not block all UVA/UVB rays.
The Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade can work with a hardtop, you would just have to detach the front portion of shade to allow hard top to close properly.
Hello! This is safe for highway use, it will definitely stay secure at higher speeds.
Hello, yes, this will fit a JK 2 Door and 4 Door.
Yes, you can keep the Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade installed when you put your top back on.
Hello, yes, you can keep the sun shade and install the freedom top over it.
Hello, unfortunately the Rugged Ridge Eclipse Sun Shade (07-17 Wrangler JK) will only work for the front, you can get the Rugged Ridge Full-Length Eclipse Sun Shade which you can find here for 2 door: http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-eclipse-shade-jk-1357906.html or the 4 door here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-eclipse-shade-jk-1357905.html
They make a full length version that covers front and back. Would assume you can leave it on just like the front version but you may want to ask. It's item #J100815.
