I haven’t seen any of these for sale. Which is why I made my own. They’re not too hard to make but I understand it may be more hassle for some than it’s worth.

I will say it is awesome to have a screened in cabana mode!

So they fit, little big but no complaints.
Bug screens will do wonders, however when they are not in use it would be best to take them off and keep them in the gear hammock in the back of the truck.
When you close the side doors the latches hang up in the screen. So again this is a strictly, when in camp mod.

All in all I give this product a 8 out of 10.

Now to be fair, the wonderful lady who made these has not been contacted by myself yet about the size in that they are a little to big.
I’m sure she would assist me if I asked as she has been great to deal with and very friendly.
Contacted her - she said no problem, send them back and we will make them fit better.*

I feel that for what I paid this is a damn good deal to keep air flowing and heat down. It gets hot in southern Va in the summer both inland and in the coast, plus the skeeters are bad.

The build is high quality, well stitched and screen material is stout. I had to buy the otherside of the velcro, easy purchase on Amazon.

For the general cost of mods for a GFC or new Silverado, I i think $100 a screen is well worth it.

I am very happy with them.





Her contact is

Hello. Posts here are about a year old and I just wanted to check to see if anyone knows if Sandi is still doing this and how your bug screens are holding up. With the season starting I am interested in this and sounds like a good, cost-efficient path if she is still doing it. Thanks

I do not know if she is still at it or not. she had a store on Etsy. That is where I would look

Here’s a link to the topic. I used screens from Home Depot and Duct Tape. Works perfect and a quick fun project.

@TReitz and @Cojo thank you both. It looks like that Etsy link still works and so I may go that path. But @Cojo your duct tape solution also looks solid and a lot cheaper!

Mine are holding up. I have about 66 days out using them. Definitely a nice add on.

Could you share the Etsy link?
