I also asked Stig about these pics. Says those are staged in the Engineering only area. So I'm guessing still being thought though!!

Holy crap I need this.
This is the top we were talking about via private message that's perfect for off roading in the PNW where you're going to have a lot of trees and obstacles well above the ground which will punish a hard top roof.

After that talk I went to the you tubes of the video-net and watched some videos of Jeep folks off-roading on Washington trails with hard tops. More than a few windows popped clear out and significant damage.

With the savings from getting X-plan pricing on Bronco, this is one of the first aftermarket items i'll be getting (along with proper rock rails/steps).

We have a fastback Best top for the wife's jeep that we put on in the summer months. It does look really cool, but I'm not a fan of the function. Getting in the tailgate can be a real pain. But flipping open the roof on the fly is pretty awesome. I'm gonna go the Sunrider route when that becomes available, and probably a bikini top too.

Hey all - this forum sure has been fun...drama and all. I cancelled my reservation for a Bronco today. It was an October reservation so it really won't help anyone out.

After all this time waiting for the Bronco to arrive...I realized the big Bronco isnt a good fit for me. The Bronco Sport was the one I wanted....I just didnt know until it came out and was able to see it in person. Oh well...it has been fun. Hope to be in a Bronco Sport late 2021. 😉

While I like the idea of having a soft top for my 2 door, this one doesn’t fold completely back like a convertible I don’t think (you could see that the SEMA top didn’t have the right arms to fold back). So, I’ll wait until aftermarket for a 2 door soft top that folds down like a convertible. Also, with limited storage area in the 2 door, I don’t want to lose so much cargo space by angling the soft top like this one.

So, the fastback soft-top was the last straw? j/k :LOL:

Enjoy your Sport!

I like the fast back look and really want one (in the 4 door), but I’m hesitant.

I plan on utilizing dual tops. My preference is for the hard top, but I watched a guy this summer get stuck out in a torrential downpour at a softball game with no top on his Jeep. No rain in the forecast and no clouds 10 minutes before or after(the other baseball field 100 yards away stayed bone dry). It happens here in Nebraska. So going anywhere without a top I can put up is a no go. All the bestops I’ve seen require a rail system you have to install. I like the standard Ford top that they showed in the how to video has no rail system and unbolt from the two sides for quick removal. Ideal for dual tops.

Also cost. It’s $700 to add dual top option to the hard tops. All the bestop options for Jeeps cost 2.5 times that. Hard to justify the extra expense.
