I just ordered the rear. I see this is a few months back. Now the are sold out on the fronts.
Ah that sucks. I now have both but summer driving is over so away they go until next May/June. At least I got the rear and ran it for a few weeks before I had to take them both off.

Any updates from those with spiderwebshades? Does the protective film they send prevent a majority scratches?
Trying to decide between a 2 piece or 1 piece shade.

I have the spiderwebshade. I ordered a piece of felt from Amazon and ran it along the bar. It works perfectly fine.

If you want the hump over the soundbar with I don't like the look of get a one-piece if you like it clean looking get the two piece from Alien I love the two-piece it looks so much cleaner with no hump oversound bar. Tell me that doesn't look cleaner than a shade going over the sound bar with a big hump

Looks good I like the red on the gray.That was a good example of why one piece has the hump and the two piece looks very nice and clean and doesn't have that hump look.

People with the Alienshade or Spiderweb shade for the front of a 2 door. Do you have enough headroom with your shade installed? On what horizontal plane is your shade "roof"? I'm 6' 2" and am concerned if the shade hangs level with the bottom or mid-point of the rollbar I may rub my head on it, especially when leaning forward for a better view when wheeling. These look to be lower than JTops which sits on top of the rollbar. But I don't think I want JTops because they don't appear to have a front only shade for the 2 door. Thanks.

I have the two piece alien shade and it rides pretty much in the centerline of the sport bars over the front seats. I'm 5'11" and have the seat all the way down and i do touch it when I'm getting situated in my seat before I take off. Not a big deal and its the only time it contacts me, but since you're a little taller you may have a different experience. Although I do have my seat pretty upright, so that may also have something to do with it.

I don't have a 2 door, but it's basically the same as my front for the 4 door. I'm 6'1 and my head is fine with the Alien shade with no hat, but if I wear a baseball hat the brim is almost bumping on the shade. It is no doubt a little lower than a JTop.

I bought the JLKini from Spiderwebshade, the freedom tops are super easy to take off and put back on to not have some sort of sunshade. There won't be any worries about it scratching the paint because the mesh didn't go over it. Yeah yeah yeah, I had to take four bolts to loosen the windshield... THAT was even easier. I really don't see what the fuss is all about on that subject. My sunshade is staying on permanently. I have plenty of headroom. I'm 5'11.5".

In a nutshell, YES. A sunshade is worth it. I personally don't care what kind you get, they all have their pros and cons. Also, I have the option of getting the back covered if I buy the rear part. I just didn't see me going completely topless just yet. I like to take things slow.
Did you paint the Nubs red or did you order them that way?

All I can see are the giant gaps where the shade doesn't meet the rollbar. Kills me inside.
These gaps are intentional so you can access freedom panel latches

depends on how big the gaps are I have the two piece alien sunshade. I really like the two piece but up front the gaps are too much around the windshield they should have made those little bungees that hook on the windshield shorter. the sun just beams right down on you and yes they have to be there to reach in for the freedom panels but it's way too much of a gap on my alien sunshade. the whole shade was made to short front and rear
