Do they one for the Jeep Wrangler?

Has anyone been in contact with Bestop about covering the front two rows for the 4 door? If they come up with that it makes the soft top totally moot for me.

Black twill vs Black Diamond colors? What's the difference? Is it a material difference? 🤷‍♂️
It is a material difference and a little bit of a color difference.

My thoughts:

The Black Diamond feels like an industrial canvas. It has a rough finish and just feels tougher.

The Black Twill feels more like a soft cloth and feels just like the soft top on the 4 door models. Even though it feels like soft cloth, it has proven to be tougher than the Black Diamond material.

Color wise. The Twill is a little darker black and will hold that color over time better than the Black Diamond.


Official info from Bestop:
Black diamond

28oz 2 ply fabric

Textured pattern

30 mil PVC plastic window

5 year warranty

To extend the lifetime and look of black diamond, use cleaner for the top and window, and vinyl protectant on the windows.



Twill

30 oz 3 ply fabric

Twill outer, rubber center lining, vinyl backing.

You can feel the difference in thickness

Quieter

Insulates against heat in the summer, and cold in the winter

Much nicer to look at on the inside

40 mil PVC plastic window, which also helps with sound and temperature

LIFETIME warranty

Twill is darker, richer, deeper black color. Twill will not fade like black diamond, easier to clean and requires less maintenance

so is it not possible to have a soft top on the 2 door that goes all the way down? do not like that "stop at the top" look at all. i hope someone figures out a way to do it, and makes it in off white.

I've messaged them on Facebook and sent them an e-mail from their website and haven't heard anything. I would suspect that if they had enough interest they would do it. I would buy one in a heartbeat, whenever I actually get my HT 4 door.

A bestop employee I spoke to in-person 2 weeks ago stated that they are planning on having a sunrider for the 4-door that covers both rows.

I tried to order the bimini (4-door) but their site keeps coming back with an error. This is a little cheaper than buying from Ford for $299, so I'll check again tomorrow.
I bought one from Ford (2 months ago?) and also from Bestop (last week). Bimini mesh 4 door. Both have my cash. No shipping info from either place. I am just curious which one will show up first. Ironically, I have had my Bronco for awhile now. Can't complain but would like a barrier between my bald head and the Arizona sun with the softtop off or open. Sun feels 10 feet away!

Nope!
I want a MIC and a big Sunrider.
That's right! Come spring you rip off the front three panels and replace them with the sunrider, then swap it back.oit in November. For those of us with roof racks it gives us the freedom to open up the top while.only having to deal with the roofrack twice a year.

I'm curious if something like this would work for the Bronco.

I have a Sunrider on my leased Gladiator with the black diamond material. It's perfectly fine and looks like vinyl vs. the premium Twill which looks like a dark black fabric type material. I think the Twill is also easier to work with in the cold and will probably last longer as Bestop puts a longer warranty on those I believe.

I like the trek top with the exception of the fast back look it provides. Looks great on the 2 door, but something about it on the 4 door looks off
I'm of the opposite opinion. Makes the two door look off, makes the 4 door look great. It diminishes the size of the 2 door too much but in the same vein, makes the 4 door look less long and bus-like.

A grand so you don’t have to remove two removable panels? Hard pass.
