We recommend using ONLY hand tools to install the GearShade
Remove or fold factory Soft Top back completely.
Install one plastic Bungee Anchor in the location with the RED ARROW, on the top of the driver’s and passengers’ side of the roll bar. If that spot has a factory-installed bolt in that location, reuse the factory one. If there is no bolt, use our provided M8 bolt.
Using the T50 Torx bit, remove the bolt for the soft top latch shown above with YELLOW ARROW.
Using one plastic “Bungee Anchor”, replace the bolt with the anchor under it. Repeat for other side.
The BLACK ARROW is there the 8″ long Bungee is attached. Place bungee through the last grommet hole and wrap around the roll bar, back to the bungee ball.
Attaching The Mesh:
Starting in the front corners, pass one bungee cord through the grommet hole and loop it around the Bungee Anchor.
Working your way down both sides repeat the last step.
OEM HardTop plate may have a sharp edge. This may lead to cutting into the bungee cord. Please remove the plate or add some corner protections to the edge, so as not to cut the bungee. Automotive door edge protection works well.
At the rear, take one “Nylon Strap” and pass the open end through UP THOUGH the grommet holes in the rear of the mesh,
Clip the metal “J” clip, on the end of the strap, to the back of the edge of the roll cage cross member. See photo.
Feed the open end of the strap through the Tri-Glide buckle on the strap.
Pull the open end of the strap snug while sliding the tri-glide buckle.
Repeat for the other two at the rear of the mesh.
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE STRAP. Too much tension may cause the J-clip to prematurely fail.
In the rear outside corner of the mesh; use the large bungee ball cord and place it through the grommet then around the roll bar then back and loop it over the ball. See the above photo.
In the front outside corner of the mesh; take a small bungee, with the attached clip, go up through the corner grommet hole then wrap the bungee over the roll bar and clip it to the open hole, located in the side of the roll cage. See the photo below.
DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES, WE ARE NOW USING BALL BUNGEE CORDS. Please orient them like this to use 2 bungees in each front corner. Feeding one up through the bottom, and one down through the top side.
In the front center, attach the snap hooks to the Hard Top locks as shown below
