So, who's rockin' a soft top?

I've been looking at the JTs and really liking what I see. I've never owned a pickup but if I were to replace my 13-year old JKU, it would have to be a Gladiator.

I have one question though . . .

What's with the soft top? Folded back, it looks like a man bun

I really love convertible tops and in my opinion, it is the only way to have a Jeep but wow. Has anyone tried taking it completely off? On my JKU there are screws and I even bought specially made spring clips to make the removal easier.

Is the only option to have a pile of canvas on the back of the roof?

Quick disconnects would be neato. Hopefully Bestop R&D is working a new solution. I could deal with it, but I run topless way too much, and quite a bit of highway, and that is some drag.
I don’t care for hard tops. I may be getting another JL

The top comes completely off with 4 screws and you can even tote it around in the bed if you want.

That's good to know. I like talking the top and doors off and I like how it makes kind of a bikini top when you take the sides and back off. Nice to know you have the removal option available along with just folding it back.

Gotta admit, that is not an attractive look. Take those four screws out mentioned earlier and lose them. Has to be a better way...

I could deal with 4 screws. Would suck in a flash rain, but hey they dry out quick

They'll probably change it up on the model year after I buy one.
