Frameless Soft Top

Hello, I have a 6 spd 2 door 2010 JK and i love it! i bought it with the hard top which i do believe was a good choice. Now im thinking that i would also like a soft top for the summer....I like the look of the frameless soft tops that just use the roll bar for support. the only issue i have with this is that most of the ones ive seen dont fold all the way down. Seems like most of them fold back to expose the driver and passenger seats but thats all....which is pretty much what i have with the freedom top. Do they make a frameless soft top that folds completely down? maybe one with removeable back windows? thanks!!

most of the bikini tops are meant to be either folded as you're describing, or taken off completely (which would probably be faster than "folding it down"...

RHD... it's a jeep thing

The whole point of the bows is that they make it possible to fold the top down all the way to the back. They have pivot points, clear the role bars, and whatnot.

So there's a tradeoff when you go "bowless." There's just nothing there to fold down.

However, you can remove the entire top, and stow it behind your seats. We do this very much like you would if you had a top with bows: remove the back window, undo the header. Then stand in the back and pull the whole thing towards you, folding as neatly as possible. Is this as easy as a top with bows? No. But it works.

I started thinking about the frameless soft top for the summer. Does anyone have one on their JK Unlimited. I would like to hear your Pros/Cons that you have with the frameless soft top?
