Northridge4x4 told me yesterday that '4 door bundles' shipping is about 'a month out'

I dunno if it's because even though lowers are ready... dealers won't ship bundles until both uppers and lowers are available...

Also wondering if Bestop is shipping to customers before dealers

People who ordered lowers only should be getting them now and can't wait for a review
That was directly from Sawyer at Bestop in Colorado.

My lowers were ready to ship yesterday. But I elected to wait for the uppers to ship together. I was specifically told less than 14 days for the uppers.

We'll see.

Hey!

The center part is just like the rest of the door and has a seal around it so it doesn't leak.

We will not be making color uppers, just Black Twill.

The window has a zipper in them, we wont be doing sliders but i believe JCR makes a kit to change to a slider.

Thanks again for all the help last year with the Glide, it's holding up great!

Question about the Core Doors...what material is that removable center section made of? Is it gasketed aluminum like the rest of the door?

Also, will there be colored uppers to match your other twill top offerings coming (Tan, Red, Blue, Grey, etc)??

And sorry if this was answered already, are those uppers completely closed or do the windows zip? I've seen the requests for glass slider uppers but I'm curious about the launch versions.

Uppers are a little behind, a week or so, but people who ordered the bundles are getting the option of separate shipping or wait for the uppers.

Some doors hit the FedEx truck yesterday... should be seeing them soon!

Wondering how easy there are to take off, put on, and store in the back.

i put the strike force zebra uppers on recently because I had my MIL riding passenger. I forgot the other part about sliders that are annoying. When you want to rest your arm on the window, only your elbow sticks out the hole. hahaha... i'd think i'd like my hard uppers more if i had a secondary option pull out the "glass" pane in a similar way the lower panels are attached on the core doors.

Hi Cassie,

I understand all the preorders have to be fulfilled first, what would the lead time look like if I placed an order today?

thanks!

So I been waiting since March when I ordered. I see folks from bestop mentioning that doors been sent out on fedex however I contacted quadratec today and they have 35 preorders not one fulfilled. The sales persons said he would contact bestop and call me back. When he called me back he says bestop told him they have no date then they will be available. He also said they keep sending the same 4 orders to you and get no response. So quadratec will need to change their shipping date from April early May late May to now end of July. It’s been changed 4 times now. Do you guys have a product problem? Would like these doors before winter.
