Daniel Craig That is awesome and makes this top worth the money and far superior to the Trektop NX!

Yes.

wiscosolid The weather went back to crap so all my recent driving has been with top an soft doors on. From what I can tell the top is not as loud as some of these recent reviews report. Im pretty happy with it. The doors are flapping like crazy but the way I see it they are there for emergency purposes only. Unfortunately the weather is creating too many "emergency" days for my liking. I also think they would be much quieter with just the lower half but I don't have any proof of that yet.

No issues with sound on neighborhood streets. Tomorrow I will test out the highway. Glad to be done and drinking more beer.
Your Jeep looks sweet with the soft doors and ORH top.
Did you try it on the highway yet?
I'm considering soft doors but I'm on the fence.

Lowerumble Aarghh! My first top shipped over a week ago. Still haven't received it. Figured customs and US holidays ate it so far. Just got a call today saying second top shipped! Now just have to convince myself to chill for a couple of more weeks. Oh Canada!

wiscosolid If the weather gods in Wisconsin don't let me do the install this weekend I might lose my mind. You heard it here first.

Putzy So I've had my top on for a week and it is a great top but I have decided that I am going to sell it. The biggest issue and really the only issue I have with this top it that it's a PITA to get into the back with the bar. My jeep is a DD and I frequently use my trunk to put stuff in it. If anyone is interested in it PM me. This top is brand new. Like I said I've have it on my jeep for only a week. I would prefer local pick up only. PM me I interested. Thanks.

I saw you installed yours on 5/7 - did you try taking it off yet and putting it back on? Just curious if it went on smooth w/o any problems.
No I have not taken it off yet. Suppose to be nice next week will do it then. Hopefully it will be easy to take off put back on.

Anybody have this problem.

It took me 4 hours to install everything. I think if there were better directions I would have got it done in 2. But in the 3 hours I took a couple breaks. Now I am grilling food and enjoying a beer on my day off from work!

They are on the top of the back roll bar. You have to unzip the cover. Hope this helps c

That is good to hear. I was getting nervous while waiting for mine. But I can put up with a 3 hour installation time if on and off is less than 10 minutes later!

bbrunick Thanks for clarifying where the straps for me. Anyone willing to take a picture for me to truly understand how they attach to the side bar? I'm guess this is exactly why my top is moving more than it should on the highway. Still love the top....

Thanks guys.

We're talking initial install.

I used to dread taking it off, now it really is a five minute job.

I sat on the center bar since I already had the window in. I think having the doors off makes it easier to climb in and out of the Jeep as needed.
