Must Have Item!!

This is a pricey option, especially if you are like me a retired dude on a fixed income. I though about it for a long time before I pulled the trigger. But with JustForJeeps running a sale and my military discount, and a rebate from Bestop I was able to get the price down from crazy expensive to just very expensive. But.....This is a high quality piece. I fits tight and does not leak. Road noise is really not a factor with it as it is really not much noisier than the hardtop. It is so easy to open and close it is crazy. If you have a hardtop on your jeep, you really need this.... It is a little harder to install and take a lot longer than they would lead you to believe.
ProsHigh quality, tight fit, does not leak
ConsVery expensive. Takes a lot longer and is harder to install than they lead you to believe. The installation instructions that come with it are not very good and the installation pictures are horrible. Does make some flapping noise on the highway when it is folded back.

Fast delivery. Easy assembly. Twill top seems to be a really nice material that should last for a long time.
ProsFast free shipping. Great price. As a first time buyer I definitely recommend.

Perfect JL Hardtop accessory
July 29, 2019
I mean, the freedom panels are nice, but pretty cumbersome. The Sunrider is perfect! Installation was a snap (although I think if I did it all over, I would assemble the unit OFF the Jeep, then bolt it down, like in some of the online vids...). Only down side I can see is that I will have to disassemble it should I decide to remove the hard top.
ProsEasy to install Looks good Sturdy
ConsWill add a few more steps when i want to remove the hard top

If you don't have a garage it was so annoying to enjoy my Jeep without a roof! THIS is the answer! I can flip my sunroof off anytime I want! Even if it starts raining I can close my roof with such ease!, worth every penny!,
ProsTo maximize your fun you need to invest in the rain Bonnet! Perfection!,
ConsNo cons!,

Really Nice Top, but THE BEST customer service!
May 30, 2019
There Bestop Sunrider for my 2018 Rubicon JLU looks and works great, just as advertised. Now I finally have the top open for those short rides where I normally had no choice but to leave the freedom tops in place. It's seals well and seems perfectly waterproof. As far as more road noise, I really don't see much difference. I chose the twill material, it is really nice quality.Betsop gets an AAAA+++ from me. I live in HI and the ordered and paid on-line but the ordering system did NOT charge me correctly. Bestop could have charged me more (a lot more) or cancel the order, but instead stepped up to the plate, ate the extra shipping costs and sent me the top. I would call that outstanding customer service and they now have a customer for life. Thank you Bestop!

ConsNone, really...

Perfect Addition to a Jeep JL Hardtop
April 28, 2019
Almost all agree that the JL's hard top and soft top are improvements over the JK. But as easy as it is to remove the hard top's "freedom panels," this Sunrider is a quantum improvement. You can literally put it up or down at a stop light without exiting your Jeep (I did it twice today). While adding just a little more noise than the standard hard top, it provides tremendous versatility. No need to schlep those panels around with you in the back or worry about leaving your Jeep so exposed when parked outside a store. It goes up or down in literally seconds and delivers all the open air fun that Jeeps are known for. I got the twill version, which is solid and goes on easily. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
