Yeah I have them on my 2011. Probably unnecessary b/c I generally only take off my hardtop once or twice a year and run a Trektop NX during the warm months, but they are great!
The only complaint I have is that the factory nuts w/ the retainer that holds them into the side of the Jeep did not have the same thread pattern. I was forced to use the nuts that came with the kit (don't get me wrong they were high quality) and they can be dropped down behind the carpet and lost more easily.

I have some of these off ebay. They work perfectly for me, and I use the same self retaining nuts that came with the jeep. They do the job and save some time. You still need the driver for the front two hard top screws near the freedom top panels though.

I have the Warrior brand type, they are convenient for me since I don't carry with me the torx wrenches on the jeep.

I bought from that exact listing last week (original poster). They popped right in.....less than 5 minutes. Fast & Easy. The only thing is that that must be an older "stock" photo because the thumb screws are a slightly different style...more of a "T" shape. Not a bad thing....just a FYI.
