Best Product for Hardtops

I've had this for several days and I am already amazed by how convenient it is opposed to having to constantly remove front panels so much. I would highly recommend this product for someone who has a hard top and wants the soft top experience as stated by the other individuals.

Awesome Product! Wish I had one years ago!

We received this product prior to release to test it out and provide an unbiased review of it. We have been using ours for about 2 weeks now and really enjoy it. The top can be opened and closed from inside the vehicle. We have been up to 60mph with the top fully open (without attaching the Velcro straps) and am glad to say that we have not experienced a single issue. The top is very secure and better built than we originally anticipated. The install is quick and only took us about 45 minutes. Bestop will soon be releasing a video for the installation that will make the install easier. No leaks and we have been in rain and even had about 6" of snow on the top after a night in Wyoming for Easter. Highly recommended for those who like the security of the hard top rear section (for kids and gear) but want a soft top experience for the front seats. The best part of all, we do not have to store the bulky Freedom tops when traveling and if rain clouds begin to appear the top can be completely closed in about 10 seconds.

Perfect for hard tops!

I had a soft top for the past two years, and sold it to buy a hardtop because I wanted a quiet ride. I was skeptical about another soft top, but the sun rider is just as quiet as a hardtop. Install was super easy, took about 45 minutes by myself. I recently went on a weeklong four wheeling trip to Moab and it was great to be able to flip up the top for the nice days. I would highly recommend this product for someone who has a hard top but wants a soft top experience without having to remove the freedom panels on the trails.
