    Sunshades with bungees can they cause damage?

    I am looking for any info:
    Do the bungees on your sunshades wear, scratch, or alter the painted surfaces of your jeeps over time? New jeep coming this week and so many choices to choose from. Whats the good, the bad and the ugly of them? Not trying to cause any waves but I want my paint to last as long as possible. I have thought to buy some of that clear mask product and put it on the possible wear areas.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I have a spiderweb shade JLKina and have had no issues
    My insurance company asked me if my Jeep was modified and of course I said no...

    Any pics of the 2 styles of shades on your jeeps? Which one is better? Are they both 2 pieces?

    Not really. Stays pretty solid.

    Looks great. Does it block a lot of sun and cool the inside well? I am hoping the rear can provide a good amount of shade and drop the heavy wind since I will have my 4 year old son in the back. Dont want him burnt or blown away, lol

    It blocks quite a bit of sun. Every now and then if the angle is just right some gets through but not enough to worry about getting burnt up under it. Definitely keeps leather seats from roasting when stopped. The rear can be installed with hard top still on the Jeep. I havenít pulled the top off yet this year since it still rains quite a bit here. As a bonus it can be left on with freedom panels in place and acts like a headliner.
