Alien Sun­shade for WRAN­GLER

4WDrive - - Gear -

WORDS AND PHO­TOS BY MICHELLE BAB­COCK I’ve heard peo­ple say, “I never thought Alien Sun­shades made much sense. If you don’t want sun on you, leave your roof on.” Well, that thought changed for a friend while we were out wheel­ing and he was badly sun­burned while driv­ing top­less. He no­ticed that I was not and re­al­ized my Alien Sun­shade had pre­vented it. Alien Sun­shades are made of mesh in the USA and are able to re­duce sun­light reach­ing your in­te­rior when the top is off. They pro­vide in­cred­i­ble pro­tec­tion against harm­ful UV rays, help to keep things cooler, and re­duce wind noise.

As stated above they are made of a thick mesh ma­te­rial and are at­tached to the roll bars with short bungee cords. They can come in var­i­ous colours or be black with de­signs on them. They have metal grom­mets for the bungees to go in and wrap around the roll bars to be held in place. You can even leave the sun­shade in­stalled when you put your soft or hard top back on. You do need a bit of arm strength to stretch the elas­tics but oth­er­wise they are very easy to in­stall. The Alien Sun­shades come packed in small boxes with sim­ple in­struc­tions and even a green alien fig­ure.

There are shades for Rene­gades as well as 2-door and 4-door Wran­glers, mesh cages for the cargo area of JKU’s, ac­ces­sories and more.

My sun­shade has more than met my ex­pec­ta­tions. It has kept my in­te­rior cooler, pre­vented me from get­ting sun­burnt and while it will not keep the rain out, it does slow down the amount com­ing in. www.alien­sun­
