    This Rugged Ridge Mesh Summer Island Topper is for those of you that have a two door 2010 and up JK and are looking for a mesh top. Now there are quite a few different types of mesh tops on the market. Some of them, like this one, will require the use of a header, so keep that in mind when you're purchasing this, you'll have the purchase price of the top itself and then also a header. Now Rugged Ridge does make a really nice no-drill header that you can use with this. As in its name, you don't have to drill it into the windshield frame of your Jeep which is a very nice feature, but again, you do have to consider the additional cost of the header when looking at these mesh tops. If you're not interested in that, if you want one of the other styles of a mesh top that you can actually leave installed underneath of your soft top or your hard top, you are gonna wanna look at one of the many mesh tops out there that do not require a header at all. But, if you want this style, if you like the fact that this securely attaches to the top of the windshield frame in much the same way that a soft top would using that header, then this is going to be a pretty nice option for you. Overall, Rugged Ridge makes a pretty high quality top and makes them fairly affordable.This mesh top is made of UV treated mesh material that's going to help do a really nice job of keeping that direct sun off of you and your passengers but still give you that open air driving experience. Of course, because this is a mesh material, it is going to let any sort of hard rain in. If you have a very light shower that passes by, this might keep you a little bit drier than if you didn't have a top on your Jeep at all. Now the biggest thing that differentiates this from some of the other mesh tops on the market is what I already mentioned, that this does require a header. So every time you want to reinstall your soft top or your hard top, you have to completely remove this mesh top, whereas with some of the other mesh tops in the market, you can leave them installed underneath your hard top or your soft top. So that is going to be a big difference in this top, and it really depends on how you wanna use the top. A mesh top like this one, with a header, is going to give you a little bit more of a finished look and it's going to be for those of you that are in those warmer climates or that only drive your Jeeps on a nice day and aren't swapping tops around a lot. But if you do live in an area where pop-up rain could happen at any time, you wanna be able to spring your soft top up, maybe one of the versions of mesh top without a header would be a better option.So to get this installed on your Jeep is gonna be a simple one out of three wrench installation. The first step is going to be taking that header from Rugged Ridge, whether it is the no-drill version which is the one that I recommend, or one of the other ones and attaching that header onto your mesh top. Once you have whatever type you currently have on your Jeep removed, whether that be folding your soft top down into the trunk or completely removing your hard top, you can then attach that header with the mesh top attached to it onto the top of the windshield frame. From there you'll work your way from the front to the back, attaching all of the loops and the Velcro fasteners around the support cage and also around your door surrounds. Now if you don't have door surrounds installed on your Jeep, that's okay too, you can still use this top, you'll just attach those straps around only the support cage and not around those door surrounds. Again, this is going to be a pretty easy installation. This won't take you more than a half hour to install, probably less. But remember, you are going to be reinstalling this and uninstalling this a lot more often than some of those other mesh tops because you can't leave this installed with your top. This mesh top comes in at right around $80 which is going to be less expensive than some of those premium tops on the market. However, you do have to consider adding in the cost of that header as well so your all-in cost is going to be more than that. If you are somebody who is going to have your top installed year round, you want a type that's gonna last a good long time, it might make sense to spring for one of the premium tops in the market that's going to hold up and last a little bit longer. However, if you're looking to save a little bit of money, maybe you're not running the top year round and you're okay with having a top that requires you to have a windshield header, then I do think this is going to be a pretty good option for you and I think it's going to be an option that is fairly priced.So if you're looking for a mesh top for your JK, I would definitely recommend taking a look into this one from Rugged Ridge that you can find right here at

            Great top!

            It's a really good top. High quality and seems like it will last a long time. The straps that hold it I had to twist to get the Velcro to lock down. The instructions could have been better also.

            Mess top

            Very easy to install. Takes less than 15 minutes to install with cross bar (sold separately) it’s an ‘easy on off’ applications great to stay out of the sun when you’re on the trail or stuck in traffic.
