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.

Nice top fits well!
Needs metal buckles and hooks, the plastic ones aren't very sturdy.
Works best with the soft top door surrounds, that eliminates the door gap issue the previous reviewer had.
All in all, pretty happy with it!

Poor tie down locations
The top is made from great fabrics but the tie down locations suck on this top. It is quick to put on but the way the straps are set up the top pulls and flaps t even 35 mph. I plan on resewing the straps and making this top great!

Good product 2nd time around.
The first time I installed this top, one of the plastic buckles broke. I called customer service and they were quick to resolve the problem. They sent me a new top. It has held up so far. I've had it on now for about a month with no further issues.

This has been a great top, I do wish it had something to manage the extra strap length though as I do not want to cut it. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 but its more like a 4.8

cheap, plastic hooks break
To start with, the plastic hooks broke, all of them. I used 'S' chain hooks to replace them. Better idea.
Then two of the buckles broke, had to tie them like rope. It's funny because the instructions say to pull until tight, it should note, if you dare!The windshield attachment came with two hand wheel type screws to hole it down, they're so big(tall) that they push the top up and it looks awful. It looks like two BIG pimples sticking out the top edge of the top. I replaced them with screws(DUH!)Also, the top folds under and doesn't follow the edge of the door top. If it rains, water will run down the inside of the door. Bad fitment.
Don't buy unless you are willing to fix it! This is the second time Smittybilt has disappointed me. Twice bitten, shame on me!
I bought a Smittybilt 94636 Khaki Diamond Extended Top for Jeep JK 4-Door in amazon, I have a Wrangler Unlimited 2007, the model 94636 is compatible with my jeep?

No, the Part Number: S/B94636 only fits the 2010 to 2015 Wrangler Unlimited and Rubicon Unlimited. Thank you for the question.

Is this top water resistant? also will it fit under the hardtop or will I have to take it off if wanting to switch.
Mike3638 from Colorado on
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.

Can I still use the hard top on my jeep if this is installed? In other words, does the windshield header included with this product interfere with the stock hard top?
Tom from Tucson on
No, you will need to remove the Smittybilt Extended Top, Black Denim S/B93615 prior to installing your hardtop. Thank you.
