Love the slant back! I think the two door has one too, but doesn't look as good.

how is visibility out of the rear view?

The visibility is no different than the regular soft tops i've had on CJs. The best thing I like about it is you can hardly hear it. That may be due to the full doors being on it though. I remember in my CJ you could hardly hear the radio with the doors flapping. We drove to Charlottesville the other day down the interstate and it was scary quiet.

$775 Plus $75 Shipping Plus 45 days wait to get it which is quick compaired to what some people have waited.

....that pink house is across the street and its for sale! ...I figured with that pink house in the back ground the JK would have to look good to be noticed! I need another jeep enthusiast on the block....I will help paint the house as too!

Schweeet!

I've been looking for a good option for summertime...thanks for the pix. Always helps to see it on a "real" jeep...instead of a catalog

Also interested here. I only have the hard top right now, do you need additional hardware to make it work or just that softtop? What about when it rains?

Thanks, The top is very easy to install. It uses a frame at the rear doors that are included. The initial instalation of the top and hardware which is included, is less than 45 minutes. There is no drilling. Its about 5 minutes to open it up for fair weather. You can open the top over the seats by rolling it forward or remove the slanted section in the rear an use it as a bikini top. The only thing I didn't like was attaching the back wndow across the back with velcro. I bought a best top tail gate bar, BESTOP TAILGATE BAR 07-09 JK 52601-01 , and attached the velcro to the bar. Now can open the back door without undoing the velcro. Some people on other sites have complained about the guy that manufactures the tops not communicating. He is slow to confirm the order and is sometimes slow to ship. I ordered mine at the end of August and it took 45 days to get it. I have not heard of a single person complain that they didn't get their top. It is worth every minute of the wait. I love mine. No leaks and very quiet compaired to regular tops. I will try to get a couple pics when I get a chance to show how it works.

Very COOOOOOL! I'd like to see your pics too. I'm curious how and if the back part folds down like a regular Soft Top, or do you have to remove it completely?

Looks GREAT!

Cheers!

Damn those two different soft tops look awesome. But 850 for that, idk if i could let go of that much for just that. Is that a reasonable price you think for what you got?

This top is more versatile than the factory top. Its Quiet and it doesn't leak. My wife can put the top up and down easy. It can be used as a bikini which is all I run on my YJ in the warm months. Its also gets rid of the boxy look in the back that the wife hates, The factory style top runs about $1500.00 so I consider it a decent price.

Tim's was planning to re-do his website. Don't know if that's the issue or not. Might take awhile.

The top looks great!

UGH! Also hate the pink house. I'd have to throw some mud at it every time I pass.

There's a house down the street from me that is pink. It's not nasty bright pink like that one, but still DAMN ugly. What's worse is it was a normal color and they recently painted it pink. So glad it's down the street and not within eye shot.

Just wondering why you chose this over the Bestop Trektop NX?

The reason I ask is the Bestop seems to be a little cheaper at around $657 and you still get the fastback look. It also comes with header, door surrounds, and rear tailgate bar and also the windows come out to make a Safari top with a sunrider feature. Just seems a better bargain so just wondering if I miss something with Offroad Hero's top.
