Merideth: Having a hardtop can have its downfalls, and one of the biggest ones is easily gaining that open-air driving experience that the Jeep is all about. Now, the Bestop Sunrider for Factory Hard Tops, in Black Twill, will be a great solution to easily enjoying that experience in your 2020 or newer JT Gladiator. Now, this will be for the JT owners with a factory hardtop, looking for the best of both worlds with a soft top in the front taking place of those bulky freedom panels, and keeping the heavy part of your hardtop on the back of the Jeep. Now, whenever you want, you can very easily flip this open, for that open-air experience, without unlatching your freedom panels, completely removing them, and trying to find a place to store them without damaging them.This will feature a premium material that will offer a bit more compared to the factory-style black diamond that you usually see, when it comes to the appearance, the insulation, and even sound dampening. Now, the top will also seal to the front with the header and the door surrounds, just like the factory soft top, or any other soft top, to ensure no leaking, and complete coverage from the elements. However, when the weather is permitting, you can easily unlatch the top with these latches up at the front, and the cable-assisted top will open and sit right on the hardtop, and you'll be able to secure this in place with the included straps, to prevent any movement when it's open.Now, when it comes to the construction, this will have a high-quality black twill acrylic fabric, that's wrinkle and UV resistant. Now, this will also come with the frame pre-installed on the fabric, making the install just that much easier, and will come with everything that you need to install it, including the door rails, the knobs, the brackets, and the tie-down straps.When taking a look at price, this will come in at roughly a thousand dollars, and for the function and the quality that this offers, I think that it's well worth that price point. Now, in comparing this to other open-air solutions, this will be unique in the fact that this will function like a top, as to where other choices will usually consist of mesh tops, or bikini tops. Now, Bestop does also have another option made of a black diamond vinyl material, which is a little bit more affordable. It's more like the factory-style material, but this is going to be a heavyweight choice, if you want that extra comfort and durability. However, if you're in search of a unique solution, you wanna get the best of both worlds, and you want more of a premium option when it comes to a Sunrider feature, then this is gonna be a great pick.Getting into the install, this will be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about an hour to get the job done with some basic hand tools. Now, at this point, we can head over to the shop and check out a detailed breakdown of what that install looks like step-by-step. So, that's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and jump into it.Male Speaker: Tools required for this install include a ratchet, an extension, and a T40 Torx bit.What's up, guys? Today we're gonna be installing a Sunrider soft top on our Gladiator, so let's get started. So, our first step's gonna be to remove our two front roof panels. Now, we have four clips that are holding each side in. So, the first one, we're gonna fold down our mirror, pull down, and the rest of them, we can just twist to unlock. And now once we have all of our clips undone, we can lift off our panel and do the same thing for our other panel.Now, before we get our soft top onto the truck, first we have to mount our side rails. Now, we're gonna mount these Z-clips into our side rail, and then get it lined up with our bolt holes, and get it bolted down. So, first, we can take our side rail. These are nice and labeled with these white stickers for which is left and which is right. And then we're gonna grab onto the Z-clip here, flip our side rail around, and we have this hole that we're gonna stick it into. And then we'll press it down and rotate it, to lock it into that groove like that. And then we can come in here, and line up these two tabs. And then we can grab two of our bolts, and start to thread those in. And then we can take our T30 Torx bit to tighten down these screws. And then we'll do that same thing for our other side rail.So, now once we have both of our rails mounted onto our soft top assembly, you can grab yourself a buddy to help you lift it up onto the truck. So, now once you have your buddy, you can grab your soft top assembly, and lift it onto the top of the truck. Next, we can install our two bolts up into our roll bar. Now, on the frontmost one, we'll just be using the bolt, but on the rear one, we'll be adding a spacer as well. And then on the front, we just have to fold back this tab, and put our bolt through there. And then we can take our T40 Torx bit to tighten these down. And then we'll do the same thing on the other side.Next, we can come to the back of our soft top, and install our bracket. Now, you're gonna wanna pull down on the soft top as you push this in. And then we can thread in our two bolts, and then we can tighten them down with a T40 socket. And now we can grab our soft top, and fold it over, and then latch our two clips up front. And now, once our soft top is folded down, we can clip our latches in the front.So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the Bestop Sunrider for Factory Hard Tops, in Black Twill, for your 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator JT. Thank you for watching, and for all things Gladiator, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
