    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Bestop Sunrider for hard top fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This is available in the twill material that you see here, and it's also available in black diamond for a few dollars less. This product is designed to replace the freedom panels on your hard top with a soft top section that acts very much like the sunrider feature on your full factory soft top. So, if you're somebody who likes to take the freedom panels out a lot to give you that open air driving feel but thinks it's a little bit cumbersome and that they're a little bit heavy, and also wants to make sure that you don't scratch and damage the freedom panels, taking them on and off all the time, this is a really nice option. You can very easily unclip the front header, flip back the sunrider feature, and all of a sudden you have the open air driving experience that you're after without all of the fuss of removing and reinstalling the freedom panels. Now, this is an expensive item, especially the twill version that you see here on the table. But, in my opinion, if you're somebody who has a hard top and doesn't want to go full soft top but wants to more easily get that open air driving experience, this is 100% the way to go. Like most things Bestop, this is a really complete product. Bestop assumes that you only have a hard top on your Jeep, and therefore includes the door surrounds, as well as all the other hardware that you need to get this attached onto your vehicle. As I said before, it comes in two different materials, the twill which is really similar to your premium factory soft top material, and a black diamond material. The twill is a higher quality material. It's heavier. It feels better. It looks better. In my opinion, it's all around a better option. However, it is going to be more expensive than the black diamond, so it does come down to your budget. As I said before, overall this is an expensive part although it is a very useful one. This top is going to install on your Jeep very easily. Of course you'll have your hard top installed, and the first step in getting this put on is to remove your freedom panels. From there you'll install the door surrounds that come with this setup. Then, you can bolt this frame onto the door surrounds. There are also a couple of clips that you'll have to install to attach the frame of your new soft top section onto your sound bar. And then it's just a matter of closing the top and securing it across the top of the windshield with these factory style clips. This setup also comes with a couple of Velcro loops to put on the frame when you do have the sunrider feature flipped back to keep things from flapping and moving around in the wind. The whole installation should only take you about an hour. You won't need any specialty tools, just a socket set, some screwdrivers and some Allen keys. Now there is one area that you'll have to make a little slit in the factory roll bar padding to be able to get all of your hardware for your new frame attached. In my opinion, that's not a big deal. Even if you were to remove this and go with a soft top or go back to your hard freedom panels, it's not something you're ever really going to notice or see, so it certainly wouldn't keep me from purchasing and installing this product. Like I've said before, Bestop products are a little bit more expensive than some of the competition, but, in my opinion, they're worth it. They make really high quality products that are going to last a good long time, and the kits are very complete. You're going to have everything you need to get this installed right in the box that it comes in. The only thing you'll need from your factory Jeep are the mushroom knobs that hold the freedom panels into the sound bar. Everything else, you're gonna have. You're not going to have to worry about ordering anything else. It all comes right in the box for you. In my opinion, even though this is an expensive piece, it's worth it. If I had a hard top on my JK, I would definitely be saving up for one of these. I'm one of those people that likes the open air driving experience. And having wrestled with the JK freedom panels a few times and, I'm ashamed to say, nicking one of them moving it around, I think this is a sound investment. If you have a hard top on your JK and you like the security, the quietness and the durability of that hard top but you want to make having the open air driving experience for the front two passengers a little bit easier than removing your hard freedom panels, this Sunrider soft top is a great addition to your hard top. While it is a little bit pricey, in my opinion, it's completely worth it for the functionality. That's my review of the Bestop Sunrider for hard top fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    How does it hold up on the highway or possibly on the freeway? Do highway speeds or freeway speeds make it bounce or put pressure on the connections? Basically, is there a certain speed that you shouldn't exceed with this flipped back, or would I be fine driving down the interstate at 70 mph and the top flipped back? Thanks.

    Erik

    • This product mounts in a very secure manner, this product will mount through your roll bar as well as your hardtop. You should have no issues with this product at regular highway speeds.

    How does it hold up in a car wash? I know you’re not suppose to take your Jeep through the car wash when you have the soft top on.

    DeanH

    • The Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop would be just like a soft top - it may work however, it could cause damage and premature wear. We would highly recommend either hand washing your vehicle our putting the factory hard-top unit back on if you would like to go through a car wash.

    Is it any issue to switch back to the factory freedom tops?

    • The Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop requires no permanent modifications to your top, allowing you to easily swap between the sunrider and your OEM Freedom Panels.

    What is the difference with Twill's sunrider? Is this only driving noise problem? please recommend for me. or more explanation. Thanks !

    Daivd

    • Thank you for your question. The difference would be the fabric that the sunrider is made of. The black diamond is similar to the factory soft top fabric and has a 5 year warranty. The black twill is a darker black, more premium thicker fabric and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Live in Chicago Can I leave in on all year

    markk

    • The Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop can be left on year round, however it will not provide the same temperature insulation as the factory hard top panels, and you will want to ensure that too much snow does not sit on this panel to prevent stretching of the fabric.

      Best Edition I have added

      I love the ease of opening my new top. I was really surprised that I did not have the wind noise when it was closed. Convenient to close when you run into unexpected rain. It really only took less than 2 hours to install.

      Freaking amazing. However....

      On YouTube it states that it takes 1/2 hr to put on. This was said by a costumer not the business. It took 2hrs. With help needed. The screws were a smidge short. So u need someone to help press the area tight together. U can do this with an experienced person like my friend who can do anything or at a mechanics place. Don’t lose faith. We saw a blog where people gave up and sent back. So worth it. It is airtight.

      I like! Part of install is a bit quirky...

      I'm a fan. Last year was my first season with my new JK after fun years with a 05 TJ. Like the acoustics and dryness of hard top, but need to be able to just toss back the hatch on nice days. Everything fit well, except the alignment on the two rear/side mounting bolts. Probably installer error on my part. Will see about getting some expert advice when it comes time to re-install in the spring.

      Well Worth the Money

      The cost of the Sunrider convertible top just seemed too high for the amount of time that I figured we would use it, but after it was installed, we realized that with it being so easy to open and close, we use it a LOT! One of the first trail rides was in the narrow Titus Canyon in Death Valley. Being able to shoot pictures through the roof came in very handy.

      Awesome addition, love it.

      Taking the freedom panels off is great but usually I have no room in the trunk area for them. A full soft top isn't really an option for me with child seats in back and a lot of highway driving so this top is the best of both worlds. It takes seconds to put up or down and get that open air feeling in the front seats but have the security of the hard top in the rear. I've put it up and down at stop signs . Install was fairly easy. About 45 minutes. Not a fan of having to cut the existing roll cage cover but they're small cuts. Quality is excellent. Feels really strong and durable. Road noise is what you'd expect. A little pricey but worth it.

      This is a perfect option for those who want the open roof but do not want to hassle with the hard shell. It took my son and I 14 minutes to install. I have opened it everyday for a week on the way home. Was worried about speed affecting product but no worries handles 80 mph no problem. The service was excellent as was delivery time, packaging, instruction and install. Love it

      I'm so happy I purchased the Sunrider. I really enjoy the tops off but rarely removed the hard tops for fear of rain. It was also a hassle to take them off and store them each time. This top is so easy to open and close I just love it. Great quality, great idea and a great purchase. Others have said the top is noisy but I have not run into that problem, it is a Jeep of course not a luxury vehicle. Rugged, it's what it's about!!!

      Great product for feeling the sun and outdoors. A great compromise. However, the wind noise is almost unbearable. Haven't used my soft top in a long time but the noise from this seems to be a lot louder than I remember.

      This was a perfect solution for wanting to be able to keep the hard top on, but not deal with removing and reinstalling the freedom panels all the top. Easy to install and hardly any wind noise difference. Some leakage going through the car wash, but probably wasn't the best idea anyways. Love it!!

      Great item, but GraBar owners beware

      This is a top-quality product. Installs like it is OEM and is a great fit and finish. Great option for hard-tops. Easy open. Install was a little harder than they claim, but be patient and get it right the first time. But, a word of warning for those people with GraBars. The latches that lock the Sunrider in the closed position are a little longer than the Freedom top latches. Since the GraBars keep the sun visors from going all the way to the windshield, the clearance for the latches on this thing interfere with the top of the visor and you have to apply pressure to the latches and rotate the visor as you push the latch just to get these to close. Not something you can do 'on the fly'. Doable, but not ideal.
