    Update: The flat anchor hooks are a perfectly viable solution for the hard top. The hook secures inside the bend right under the lip of the frame. No bolt needed...I slipped it under, secured the net at the corners, and it holds nicely. This would replace the triangular corner mount if you plan to keep the net with the hard top on. Works fine for me.

    My thanks to Ed @Raingler Nets for the guidance and instruction.

    Excitedly installed my nets today. Is my side window correct in not having the circle near the upper front mount? All other photos I've seen has had them there.

    Yes, it's correct. The original posts show 2 rings diagonally at the opposite corners, but the recent adjustment will only have one. The only way I got mine to fit properly was to have the ring at the lower end towards the rear (as I see yours is).

    Perfect thanks. How tight were you able to get yours? I'm finding allot of slack

    Driver side is ok but could be tighter; passenger side has a little more slack than I expected. The top rear mounting point isn't high enough to get them a bit more taut.

    I appreciate it. Sharp looking jeep love the wheels. Its unfortunate how much slack there is given the cost of these things.

    Thank you... I like different. I may try to work on a way to tigthen them up a bit this weekend with a strap to the top of the roll bar and behind or above/below the fire extinguisher mount.

    I shored the net up a bit with a small bungee. Temporary solution until I can figure out something long-term.

    @Huskywrangler and @melendez69 Seems to be sitting low at the top side. See if this doesn't help to move the upper buckles to the outside of the bar and up, like this:

    Note: Front ring was removed for hardtop models, was too close to hardtop.

    They're definitely sitting low at the top. I'll give this a try... thanks, Ed.

    Hey there, Ed. It looks like your version of the net is for the soft top. I have a hard top, so my version of the net has only one ring at the lower rear. I think your note in reference to the front ring applies to me since I have only a strap at the top left.

    Well, it was worth a try.

    Still mounts to the outside of the roll bar (rather that up and under center). It may be a little tight fit for the hands with the hardtop on though. Keep us posted, let's get that snugged up for ya!

    Ok, Ed... mission accomplished. I moved both mounts to the outside & that firmed up the net front-to-back. No interference with the top. Bungee be gone...don't need it.

    Thank you for the advice.

    The @Raingler Nets net behind the seats looks great. I swapped out the sides to run with a different look for a while.

    Thanks, again, Ed. You done good.
