Hey guys. So today I'm here with the PrimalTech half shade top fitting all 2018 and newer to 2-Door JL Wranglers. So this is gonna be for the JL owners who are looking for some up front protection from the elements while you have your soft top back or your hard top off so you can enjoy that open-air driving experience.So sun shades or mesh tops are gonna offer you a number of different benefits. So first off, they're gonna protect you, your passengers, your interior, from harmful UV rays and act as a barrier. So speaking of a barrier, this is going to act as some relief as well on those hot summer days keeping all of that hot air out and keeping your cab area cooler. Not to mention, this is also going to give you a little bit of wind protection. So all of that extra and excessive wind that may come in the cab area, this is gonna act as a barrier for that as well keeping your cab area a little bit more comfortable while you have your soft top or your hard top off your Wrangler.So this option is going to offer all of that while being compatible with your factory hard top and your factory soft top which a lot of other options on the page are unable to offer you. This is also gonna be very durable, made of a woven PVC coated 1000 denier polyester mesh which basically means it's gonna be very durable and stand up to the elements and last a very long time. So you do have that heavy duty mesh in the middle here, you also have some reinforced edges, some metal grommets, and some very easy to install bungee cords making this very easy to take off and put on whenever you like.Now, this is gonna be a little bit more expensive than the standard half shade top on the page at roughly $100. But in my personal opinion, I think it brings a little bit more to the table than some of those other choices. First off, the big one there is the fact that it's compatible with a hard top and a soft top. A lot of other options on the page don't really give that choice, they usually are compatible with one or the other, so I definitely think that that's a big note to call out there. Not to mention, this is gonna be very durable giving it a very long lifespan and able to stand up to the elements and it's very easy to install like I mentioned before with these bungee cords. Another thing that I do really like about this that a lot of other tops don't have is the fact that this has two storage pockets up at the front adding a little bit of storage to the inside of your cab area while also making it very easily accessible up at the front here.So install, like I mentioned before, is super easy. It's gonna be a 1 out of 3 wrenches on the difficulty meter, probably taking you about 15 minutes to get installed. So speaking of that install, let's jump into that now.So first step to this install you wanna make sure that either your T-tops are off of your hard top or your soft top is pushed all the way back. Then you wanna make sure that the mesh top is oriented in the correct way. So you're gonna have front storage pockets up at the front, which is very helpful, but you wanna make sure that they are underneath, that they're facing down inside the cab area and that they're facing forward towards the Jeep. So we can take our shortest bungee cord and hook that through itself. And once that's hooked through we can hook it onto this hole up in our windshield channel. After that, we're going to move to the back. So then we can move to our backmost grommet, we're going to hook one of our longer bungee cords through. This gonna be your thinner longer bungee cord. The other ones that are gonna wrap around the side here are gonna be a little bit thicker than this one. So we're gonna wrap this one through itself. And then once that's tied onto our mesh top so we can hook it underneath our soft top rail here. Now, if you have a hard top you will be able to pull the bungee cord back, but we are just going to hook it around and onto itself. That's gonna keep it pretty taut there. So now we can move over to the other side and do the same thing and then we'll move on to the side bungee cords. So we can just repeat those same steps for the other side. And just hook that through and then hook it onto our front hole there.So now we're gonna move onto our side bungee cords. We can just hook this through like we did with the other ones. Hook it to our mesh top first. And what I'm gonna do with these is wrap it around our sports bar. And then again hook the bungee cord onto itself. Then we can do the same thing for the one up here. These are gonna be the longer and thicker bungee cords like I mentioned before. Now we can do the same thing on the other side.Also, I would like to note that you wanna go over the roll bar. I'll show you guys in a second. Over top and then scoop it underneath. This is gonna keep the mesh top a little bit higher so it's not hanging down lower and getting in the way of you while you're driving.So after you have all your bungee cords attached then you're all set to go. So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe. And for more videos like this always keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.

Wind Noise question
Just received the half shade. looks durable, I do wonder,,, ,because there are no bungie cord positions on the front and back, will it tend to flap and get noisy at hwy speeds. I bought a competitors half shade, the wind noise was WORST than without the shade so I didn't keep it on. Since I haven't installed this yet, Il get back to you on noise potential after try it outHelpful (1)
