wildrnesxperienc This thing is freakin awesome. Really looking forward to seeing the commercially available product and pricing. Congrats to you man, wow!

Squint No, it doesn't have anything to do with this soft top, but it has the same type of rear windows/look so I can see where you might think that. It's a nice top for sure.

InvictusDecretum Are you affiliated with the hard top version sold by Gr8 tops ?

Sub'd now. Would love this...

Thanks very much-high praise coming from an industry expert. I certainly appreciate the comment.

Not too old. . This is still being worked on. Parts of it are production ready. The original design was very functional but extremely expensive and difficult to reproduce, hence all the changes. I still can't give a date or pricing yet, but hopefully soon.

I really appreciate the offer and creative thinking, but money is not really the issue. The costs have been paid for already, it would just be nice to get some of that back. Besides, I would feel terribly guilty taking your hard earned money and hanging onto it for some unforseen amount of time without a product ready to ship. I love the fact that you have faith in my work and what I am building and I thank you for that.

Balancing cost of production with everything I want in the top is difficult, but it will happen.

I really appreciate the interest and encouragement.

Unlimbited Any news? Im interested!

InvictusDecretum Can't wait for the announcement. Already started saving and am prepared to offer left leg and firstborn.

Gonzos Wrangler Nice, very nice!
I like the military look it gives the jeep.
Kudos on the design.
10-23-2013 06:59 PM
lambsb Show off! I want one! 97 TJ tan please! Looks perfect for zombie hunting. Seriously nice work you should manufacture these.
10-23-2013 05:27 PM
MTJeepTJ One of the best threads i have read on here so far. The top looks amazing great work. It would be very useful to somebody that uses their Jeep for stuff like hunting/fishing due to the easy access and raised room overhead to mount gun/fishing rod racks. Netting would be awesome on the sides and back to prevent tree branches from scratching the plastic windows if a guy needed to keep his dog in or something. I could see buying something like this if it were production myself.
10-22-2013 10:09 PM
Squint Unfortunately, no decision yet on pricing. The top is getting much closer to production ready though. An announcement is due January/Feb about availability and price if all goes as planned. The original design has changed slightly however it does still have the classic look of version 1. Honestly, I am not sure they are expected to fly off the shelves since the Jeep community has come to expect pricing based on plastic and thin aluminum parts along with inexpensive overseas labor, all of which this top is the antithesis. After driving it around for a year, I have to say that I still absolutely love this top and look forward to seeing a few more on the road. I really appreciate all the great comments

SeaRat Just totally awesome. My wife and i were looking into new tops for our TJ & YJ. This would be perfect for our family lifestyle. Great job!
10-07-2013 07:11 PM
Semper Fi03 I just found this yesterday. Is there any thought, prices, of selling this? I love the way it looks also. I have a red 2006 LJ Rubicon that I would put that on!
12-16-2012 02:54 PM
Abdul-Hakeem Great, looks ideal for the desert also.

CRolandLJ That thing is awesome.

termite That is pretty cool, awesome work and nice Jeep!
09-25-2012 09:29 AM
ibrown3005 Great looking top. I have been playing with the idea of investing in a Trektop NX for my JKU, I would definitely go for this top. Looks very versatile and well made. Great Job Squint!
09-25-2012 08:59 AM
Squint That is one cute little doggy.
It wouldn't actually make sense to make them for LJs only so TJs are definitely on the radar.
09-24-2012 11:38 PM
Shadowkraze I want a top like this for my 97 TJ so bad I could cry...
09-24-2012 11:00 PM
gixxerphil I reminds me of soft version of jscherb's safari cab hard top.
If I had an LJ, I would definitely want one
