When I was searching, the Body Armor was brand new. It looks like the top can be manipulated up and down because the bars are outside of the travel area of the top. At the time, I was concerned with the mounting of it on a stock JKU. I ended up going with the Congo Cage. Top manipulation with it on as a PITA. To the point that I have left my hard top on and here it is July already. If I put the soft top on this year, I'll remove the rack until I want to use it. Be for warned, you don't get a 500 lb weight limit on a light rack. It is a four MAN operation putting it on and taking it off. I'm thinking about making a device to help with that and the hard top so that I can do it by myself.
