sunrider top

Hey I am looking at a new soft top for our 94YJ and we like the look of the sunrider from bestop. It is the one that the section over the driver can flip back to let the sun in. I am worried that it may leak though. Does anyone know of someone with one? it costs about 700 bucks and I want to be sure its worth the money! thanks for the help

I have the bestop supertop and it doesn't leak at all. As long as you have a good seal around the windshield you should be fine.

i have the stock 06 TJ sahara sunrider top. it´s like the bestop sunrider top. it works fine and there´s no leaking.

BUT. now with my lightbar the lamps are too much in the rear. i can´t use this feature anymore...

btw. if you only drive 35-45 mph in the city the bikini top can stay under the sunrider top and no rain comes inside.

Man, if the shipping wouldn't kill it, I'd love to work out a "trade"!

i still use the sunrider feature,but only when the bikini top is installed in the summer. on that way i can protect the inside against rain during the night and i don´t have to take off the bikini top.
i´m very lazy and that saves me about 5 minutes vry morning and evening...
and if it rains in the morning i can drive with it to my company. it´s only 3 mls away and i only drive slowly straight over the "reeperbahn" (do you know this stret over there? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reeperbahn ).
