Newbie needs help.....

I just acquired my 2018 jk unlimited Sahara in Gobi. I am starting my build and am doing ok except for finding a source who can furnish the classic Bestop Sunrider in anything other than black. I want the Sunrider in a tan or beige to blend with the factory Gobi. Somebody makes them or know how to modify a Sunrider to because I occasionally see one on the road. Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated..Thanks

Thanks for the reply OldDogger
I have already talked to the custom shop at Bestop and they claim they have NEVER sold the Sunrider in any color but black. He sounded like a younger guy but he was nice enough to double check with one of the older managers just to be sure. Still looking for help on this one.........

You are talking the Sunrider for Hardtop, and as best as I can find it only comes in Twill (black) and Black Diamond. You obviously have the body color top on your Sahara. The gobi is a great color. I almost bought my Chief in gobi (dealer had 2, one chief blue, one gobi) but the blue just kept calling to me.

The only solution I can see, which I doubt you would like, it to remove the hard top and replace it with a soft top, either the Supertop NX (traditional square back top with frame) or the Trektop NX (angled back top which uses the sport bar system for support). They are available in various configurations in pebble tan, oak tan and spice. But, the least expensive Trektop NX is over a grand.

If you go that route, there are Supertops, Supertop NX, Trektops and Trektop NX. The NX is the one with the flip back sunrider feature. The newest Trektop Pro also has the flip back sunrider, but I don't find it for a 4 door, besides it is very expensive.

Thanks rgreen65. It's somewhat comforting that others are not aware of any color availability but Black. I am not giving up. I know it can somehow be done and I will not quit trying to figure it out till I solve it. BTW I double checked by photos just to be sure and It definitely has the Bestop logo and the top is a tad bit lighter than the Gobi.
