Finally had a day off work and took the doors and top off. Was also to install the Spiderwebshade as well and man does this thing cut down on the heat! We took a ride with the doors and top off before the install and with a heat index of 105 degrees today, the whole family was melting on the short ride. Came home and put the Spiderwebshade on and what a huge difference it made on cutting down the heat directly from the sun. Installation was simple and I like that it can stay on the Gladiator even with the hard top on. I'll have an installation/review video up pretty soon on my YouTube channel so keep checking back.

@Ted Striker I saw that you have to "move" the windshield back some to get the front portion of the shade in place. Any issues there?

Thanks,

None at all, very simple to do. Only 4 torx bolts across the header on the inside. I flipped the windshield wipers out, had my wife hold the windshield back from the frame and installed the clips on the front and set the windshield back down then put the bolts back in.

@Ted Striker Good to know. I see you are also in Htown. What area of the city?

Shade screen looks great! Going to put on my list for my ordered Gladiator. I looked at their website and it says this stays on with the hard top, but I dont see how you access the freedom top latches. Is there openings? How does that work?

Crosby. NE Harris County

There is an opening on the top that allow the freedom panel latches to engage.

Took a few pictures to show the Spiderwebshade when the hard top is on.

How do you access the latches though? I can see how they easily engage just not seeing how to access them. Can you just move the shade a little and get to them easily?

Thanks for the pics BTW.

Yes, you just move the shade out of the way a little to access the latches. It's all bungee cords, so it stretches easily enough to get your hand in there.

Wife bought me one as soon as she knew I was getting a JT, she has one on her JK and loves it. Also like mine and keeps it dark inside instead of that white underside when top is on

How much space did you lose? I’m 6’3 and don’t want my head hitting the actual shade.
