I wish someone would make a retractable sun shade. I wanna say @Bestop was working on one but scrapped it or something. I gave up using my bungee one. It took forever to install and I never wanted it on at night, but taking it on and off was too much of a pain in the ass. But really isn't that big a deal for me as I'm the opposite of most people, using the soft top in winter and hardtop in summer.

Was thinking of the JTop...does anyone know if the factory grab handles will interfere with the sunshade?

I went with the Alienshade. It took about 30 minutes to install and I was able to leave it on when I put the top back on. On speeds up to 60 MPH (haven’t been faster yet with the shade on) with the top off the shade stays in place and seems very sturdy. No complaints here.

I think you can order it with or without access holes. I'm pretty sure I ordered with the holes. I'll post pictures when I get it.

Jtops is one exceptionally high quality product.
I agree and would have loved to purchase one. However, their tops don't fit/work with the Sunrider for Hardtop. :(

I installed the Jtops full shade just last night and I do have the OEM grab handles. While not ideal as the first two straps line up with the grab handles it does work. The Jtops is a really nice sunshade. Install was easy. I would highly recommend. I like that it stays above the roll cage to main headroom over some of the other options too.

Looks good. What color is that, gray or titanium?

How did the rear work out with the factory handles?
