I don't doubt it's solid, it's just the fact that my kids are cooking in the back with out a sunshade already. I can't wait another 3 weeks for the J-Tops.
I believe SpiderWeb has them in stock.

I picked up an Alien Sunshade 4 door (they have a 2 door version too). It was originally tough to get on, but after some tips from @brow it was pretty easy. I strongly recommend lowering the windshield slightly to get the plastic clips aligned properly. It will take less time in the end. I had 2 out of 4 not in correctly. If you take the sunshade off, you shouldn't have to lower the windshield again, just unhook the T bungees (they will have to droop a little - probably will be hidden with the sun visor up though).

Also, after attaching the shade to the front, do the 2 rear bungees next. It stretches it out and makes it a lot easier.

There are a little bit of gaps as you can see, but hasn't been a problem with the sun. I like the looks of the bungees over buckles. However, my daughter got her hair caught in one. Might have to use some black duck tape to prevent that. The bungees can easily be replaced. I'd like to get some extra plastic clips for the front T bungees in case they break some day down the road.

No flapping, feels open.

Message must have been heard. JTOPS responded with:
"We are trying our best you get your order out in a timely manner; however, things aren't moving as fast as we'd like. To remedy this issue we have hired new people, as well as added overtime to the production schedule. We are truly trying our best.
Your order is at the top of our list to get out. Worst case scenario is it will be shipped next week.
Thank you again for your patience! Have a nice day!"

I believe that JTOPS will get me the top and others that have ordered and when it arrives I know that the product meets all my shade needs.

By far the best in my opinion and worth the wait.

They clearly didn't think the whole JL community would find out about them at once, haha. Good on them for being one of the first to market AND for making the best solution on the market.

I ordered 5/10 and just called them - they said it'll hopefully ship by early next week. Judging by the updates here, they gave me a conservative answer.

Can confirm. Contacted them about my order and was able to get black.
Did they upcharge you when you changed to the black knobs instead of silver?
They were saying I would have to pay $2 a piece (10 of them) if I wanted black... not sure if I want them that badly.
