I purchased this top with the tonneau cover and the windshield channel (all Smittybilt) for my wife's 2010 JKU. Tonneau cover went on without any issue. Next I tried to assemble the top. The windshield channel has big knobs that hold it down to the windshield frame. Nice so that you don't need tools to fasten it doesn't but the knobs poke out the top by about an inch and it looks cheesy. I thought that I did something wrong but looked at the mesh shade with the same bar in pictures and the knobs stuck out there too. After cranking the knobs down all of the way the channel still had a ton of slop in it as well. I went to the hardware store and bought regular bolts to replace the knobs and shimmed up the tabs that contact the windshield frame and all was well up front.
In the back the tension straps are supposed to hook into the tub where the hard top bolts in on the rear holes (per instructions). This isn't going to work when using the tonneau cover because that doesn't line up with the roll bar sleeves. I used some heavy duty zip ties and small metal rings to make the anchor point at the bottom of the roll bar. It all lines up and fits cleanly now.
I adjusted a few other strap locations because I was using the roll bar grab handles (also Smittybilt) and they wouldn't work with the top configuration either but that isn't as important I feel.
The material quality looks very nice and the price was good. Out of the box I was disappointed but I was able to make it work. I would think that Smittybilt would have a test rig with their own gear set up on it to check for compatability on this type of thing. I don't think that the combination that I am trying to run would be uncommon. Why can some goofball like me figure out a solution for the knob thing and Smittybilt can't?
I might recommend to a friend if they understood what they were getting wasn't going to fit correctly out of the box.
Is this top water resistant? also will it fit under the hardtop or will I have to take it off if wanting to switch.

Yes, the Smittybilt Extended Brief Top, Black Diamond S/B94635 is water resistant. It's the same material as the soft tops. You will need to remove this to install any hardtop or soft top on the vehicle. Thank you for the questions.
