Couldn’t agree more. Having it not block the rear view is a big plus and it feels 100% naked when flipped back. Im also running in safari mode as much as possibleI don't have experience with the OEM top, but have the twill Bestop on my 2dr and I love it! It’s super well made and I like the functionality of it. I know some people don’t like that it doesn’t fold all the way back and sits on the rear roll bar, but I actually prefer it. It’s 100% out of view in the rear view and it doesn’t feel any less open than no top. YMMV on that part though.
it’s also a fair amount cheaper to purchase directly from Bestop than from Ford.
