Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

Perfect Fit, Great Price
First i'm pretty new to the jeep world. My whole reason for getting this is because my wife and I, went on a road trip around Oregon during the summer. During that road trip we got extremely sun burnt with the top and doors being off, didn't really think about it. So I ordered this mesh top to combat that since we wanted the top and doors off during the entire summer season. We received the mesh top, and the quick detach windshield header very quickly from extreme terrain. The mesh top came with instructions on how to install it. Installation was very quick and easy. It took between 5 and 10 minutes probably. I do recommend tying the mesh top straps around something to prevent them from flapping all over while driving. The top itself provided tremendous amounts of shade, while still maintaining that great open feel. The wife and I no longer had to worry about being sun burnt which was great. I think it also looks great, so for a decent price you get great functionality, and sprucing up in the cosmetic department. I couldn't be any happier with the quality of the material of the top. It doesn't feel cheap, or rigid. It feels sturdy and after using it for two months has really held up much better than I ever anticipated. When the fall season came around and we got our first rain, the wife and I got caught with the roof off in it. I was surprised to find that the mesh top actually help deflect rain while driving so not much actually got on us. Anyways, I think this is a great product from Smittybilt, and recommend it to anyone with a jeep who isn't looking to spend $200.00 or more on something with a design on it, or "better" quality, because this top honestly is great.
I gave this product all 5 stars, and I honestly think it deserves it. If something would have teared, or there was unnecessary flapping while driving, I would have marked it lower. I haven't experienced any of that thus far, so my review is 5 out of 5 on every category. I do feel that appearance is completely different person to person though. I don't like things to flashy, I personally like plain and simple for something like this, hence my 5 out of 5. The bang for you buck.. well you can't beat that price. I paid $59.99 with free shipping during a promotion.
