X2, I considered buying these right up until the day I bout my soft top and realized the only time I'd have those in was in Fall and winter. i like the idea behind them and I see why people buy/make them, but to me there a waste of money if you have the soft top on during summer and spring.

My logic was based off my old car with a sunroof, in summer and spring the little door (i have no clue what its called) the closes to block the sun was never closed. In the winter and about mid fall it was closed. My little summer winter mode before I got the jeep with two separate tops.

PRWhitby I really thought about getting the JeeTops. My only aprehension is it comes with some inserts to cover the panels if you don't want the light to come in. So, that's now 2 more pieces of stuff to figure out where to store.

I love the idea of a completely clear plastic hard top.

labmule In my opinion the panels come off to easily for it to be worth it putting windows in, but its yours man and that is all that matters.

legitposter Having the sun baring down on me, even when im not in the mood, doesn't sound like fun. That's why I like our freedom tops - off when im in the mood, on when im not. I'd hate to put the freedom top on but still have sun staring at me and lighting up the inside of the jeep.

overblown WOW! That is amazing. Why did you have to show me that?!!!! My Land Rover has a glass roof and it's one of my favorite features.....

motherofchaos If you live in a state like Alaska, not only are our summer days limited but our sunlight as well. These are great to get a little vitamin D the other 10 months of the year.

billjean2011 Would love to see some pics of the glass tops...thinking of adding them to my Call of Duty

Sinz Got my tops yesterday

Sinz Chrysler doesn't make them but look at it this way, you can have them on and still get the light through or you can remove the top completely...still you get to look up and outside either way!

All the cars I bought before I must get the sunroof, usually the option was less than $1000 or if it came with other options that might cost a little more. Anyway, the sunroofs were POWERED also.

So, over a grand for 2 piece of panels, I do think it's very much overpriced.
05-13-2012 12:37 AM
Sinz True...I consider it for winter use to make it feel like you have them off in the summer minus the cold lol! it's definitely something different that everyone does not have!
05-12-2012 07:53 AM
positrak It's a peculiar product, other than the back portion on a JKU which might be an idea, because you can take the fronts off. Otherwise I'd prefer it if it was actually a sun roof, where you leave the panels on but can slide it open, Unless the sole idea is for winters it's point is just to let in light. If for the summer, how about a clear bikini top instead. Leave hard top on, remove panels install a clear vinyl bikini, keep with wind out and the sun in.

The purpose of it or reason just seems peculiar when you have so many combos with the stock.

Some even more enterprising indvidual could mould a one piece acrylic perspex other clear lightweight panel for a fraction of the price and sell it for probably 3 x's less than this.

Maybe the next big thing is a pope mobile clear hard top. The whole thing is see through plastic smoked out.

kbwwolf You can get Jeeps with hard tops?

DrDanimalSize for $500 I'd consider it, but for $1300??? ummm no.

kjeeper10 Way 2 much considering my hard top is only on during the winter/cold months.
05-11-2012 11:01 PM
themoneypit Cool idea, but for about a grand I'll just take the solid tops off.

If you feel the need to let more light in, go for it it's your Jeep!

I personally don't feel the need for more light inside and I don't like how the panels look with glass in them. Has nothing to do with it 'not looking like a Jeep'.

Not being negative at all, you asked for comments....I commented
05-11-2012 10:48 PM
Sinz I just ordered a set of the front tops through my dealer, I got them for $1000.00 here in Toronto, ON, Maybe they give the stealership a good deal because they are right across the street from them I don't know but I got mine for the price that I posted...Quadratec is way over priced! here is the link to the company that makes them in Canada--->http://www.national4wd.com/?p=4242

No not even close. Personally has nothing to do with real jeepers. But more with letting more light in is not worth a grand. But hey bro it's your jeep your money spend it and alter your jeep as you see fit.

The cheaper option from Quadratec is $1300. That is sending your top panels in to have the glass installed.

$1950 if you buy new panels with the glass. Then get $650 back if you send in your tops afterwards.

Spro12JK Those are cool but not worth the price even with getting $650 back.
05-11-2012 10:21 PM
cavsvet74 There is a core charge. You get $650 back when you return your existing freedom panels.
