I love it! but i think the combination of my sound bar and the cooler temps have caused it to shrink up a bit. sooo i cant get the tailgate bar in the brackets... but other than that its awesome. i didnt know it has pockets on the inside of the cab(like right above the sun visors) to store small stuff.

yeah it just goes right over, very snug. you need the bestop windshield channel, factory door surrounds, and factory tailgate bar.

At first it bothers you to get the jeep rained in, then you sorta accept it. Next thing you know, you're watching the weather channel for the next rain storm so you can plan a trip topless.

In addition there were some issues they wanted to work out to make sure there wouldn't be to many complaints. Jon and Thor are great folks who have been jeeping and offroading for a long time. It has been my experience that they stand behind their products and provide great customer service. I am looking forward to getting one of the tops and already have had great success with their Winchline and safety thimble. I know that some people say it is a knock-off of the rock gear top, but there are quite a few differences. IMHO it is a very well thought out system and as said above I can hardly wait for some extra money to come into my picture so I can spend it on this top.

It should be here in a week. I'll post up some pics as soon as I get it slapped on. I'm actually think about installing it myself.

Hey Rockodile, got to see the top up close and personel, as they had tipped over their heep, in one of the hot tubs. They were belching blue smoke, like you wouldn't believe. It did give me the chance to talk with them, and check out their wares. Great to meat people like that, out on the trail. Been watching their products for awhile, now. As you said, they are good people, with great products.

I didn't tell him, you did, just now.
(You could have let him think you work for Q.)

Ok, I'm sorry. I'm just in awe of what you do and forget myself.:o
