It is obvious that a huge part of the great fun of owning a Jeep is the open-top wheeling that goes with the vehicle. However, it does not take long to realize that open-top fun comes with the bonus of a free sunburn, especially when you live in a state like Arizona, where it’s sunny almost every day.
When you own a Jeep with a hardtop and you wanna loose it for a while and enjoy the open air, you have few options. You can buy a soft top and only use it when it rains, you can get a Bikini top or a mesh top. Soft top and bikini top are good options, but they are really thick and once put on, they block all the sun, breeze and the view of the sky. They will protect you from the sun rays very well though. They are pretty expensive, and with bikini tops you have to remember to buy a separate windshield channel, which is as much as the top itself.
As I was trying to decide which option would be the best one for me, I accidentally came across few pictures of another jeeper, who had a mesh top intalled and it looked really good on his jeep. I also liked that it seemed like a really easy install with apparently few bungy cords. He seemed very comfortable with a nice amount of shade inside his jeep. After talking to him and getting his feedback, I decided to order the mesh top for myself. It is made in Orlando by SpiderWebShade.
