Hey, guys. So today I'm here with the Rugged Ridge Full Eclipse Sun Shade, fitting all 2018 and newer four-door JL Wranglers. So a sun shade or a mesh top has a number of different benefits. First off, it can protect you and your passengers as well as your interior from damaging and harmful UV rays. This is also gonna offer a little bit of relief on hot summer days, so when the sun is beating down this is gonna act as a barrier and keep the cabin or the cab area of your Wrangler a little bit cooler and a little bit more comfortable. So this is also gonna act as a barrier from wind. So when you have your top off, you're trying to enjoy that open-air driving experience, you have all of that excessive wind coming in your cab area, this is going to protect you from that.Now this Rugged Ridge option is gonna do all of that while also remaining very affordable. This is also gonna be very well-built, made of a reinforced mesh material, you have a nylon border on here and you also have heavy-duty nylon straps featuring some Velcro as well and I personally like that over some bungee cord options. Now, this is going to be compatible with your factory soft top which is a bonus, you don't necessarily have to take this off, you do have two holes in the front so you can strap your soft top down. I would like to mention that this is not gonna be compatible with the factory hard top. However, this is very easy to take off so that shouldn't be a problem in the long run especially at the price point that it's at.So speaking of that price, this is gonna be roughly $70 making this a very affordable choice for a full sun shade. Now a lot of other options on the page are usually gonna have that bungee style attachment system. I personally like this a little bit better just because I think it's gonna have a longer lifespan. Bungee cords tend to lose their elasticity over time and these are not going to do that since they are made of heavy-duty nylon. And this is also gonna be a lot easier to adjust. Now those are still gonna be great budget-friendly options but at this price point, I definitely think that you're getting some very beneficial features out of it. Now if I did have to nitpick though, the compatibility with the hard top can be an issue for some but at this price point, especially with how easy this is to take off and put on, this is gonna be a really good option to take a look at. And it also comes with a handy bag, so if you did ever want to take this off, you can easily store this up and throw it in the back of the Jeep for whenever you want to use it next.So speaking of that install, this is gonna be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, no tools required, probably will take you about 15 minutes to get this installed. So speaking of that install, let's jump into that now. So to kick off this install, you want to make sure that your sun shade is facing the correct way. You want to have the two holes facing the front and then we are going to grab our 3M strip. You're gonna have a Velcro right at the front to hold it in place and keep it taut while it's laying on your Jeep. We're just going to rip that off real quick, set our sun shade down and you're going to install this right in the middle of these two tabs. You want to make sure to keep it away from the weatherstripping as well as your interior here. We're gonna place it on the body piece, on that smooth body piece right there. That's going to be our connection point for the middle of our sun shade. So after we have our Velcro placed upfront, we can lay our sun shade over. And I am actually gonna connect this here. So we have one attachment point already set then we can start to hook our loops on the side.So these are gonna be Velcro as well. These are gonna go under and then hook through our loop here. And what I do like is you have a little tab here so you can pull it there. Now we're not going to tighten everything down, we want to make sure all of our attachment points are set then we can go back and adjust it, make sure that everything is even. But we can just continue down the side.So I do actually like this attachment style a little bit better than bungee cords, it makes them a little bit easier to work with. Bungee cords are easy, however, sometimes they can be a little bit of a pain to get them on the first time just because they are pretty tight with their elasticity. This makes it really easy, you can go back and adjust everything after. Now we can move to the back.So I'm just going to tighten down this last strap here. So after everything is tightened down, all of your final adjustments are made and your top is sitting pretty tight, you're all set to go. So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install.
