    Review & Install Video

    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.

      A must have for summer freedom

      I contemplated this for a year. So glad I did it. It installed pretty quickly; although the mushroom knobs and screws could have been slightly longer to allow the initial install catch to be an easier process. You need 2 people: 1 to hold it in place and 1 to tighten in the mushrooms and screws (or use a clamp). No leaking as some have reported. There is no comparison to how much nicer this is than dealing with your freedom panels. It’s a little noisy when closed but come on folks, IT’S A JEEP! I’m very happy I did it!

      Love it.

      Love my Sunrider. Easy to install. No leaks so far - only been in 2 raid storms - no major downpours, but I think it will hold. I blasted it with a jet stream from the hose from all directions. Flip the latches and lift back and flip forward and latch to close. I don’t even have to stand; I can do it sitting in the driver seat.

      It leaks and I’m not happy about it. Intallation wasn’t difficult. Just make sure Not to tighten your screws all the way. Tighten them after all parts have been assembled.

      Get one!

      The Sunrider is the best addition to our '15 Rubicon. No leaks, works great, top is opened and closed in 15 seconds. Installation was a little tough, wound up installing the little screws first to get the big ones to start. Well worth the minor aggravation of figuring that out.

      Great addition to our Jeep Wrangler. Opens easily and is better than using a/c to cool off the interior. A bit difficult to install some bolts, but otherwise no problems. Will probably remove in winter.

      Pricey but worth it

      So simple to put up and down that even for a 5 min ride I open it. Before with the stock tops I only took them out for long drives. Quality of the Twill fabric is very good. Fabric is tight and quiet when its closed. Installation was easy enough. 45 min TIP: Find the spots for the little cuts you make in the roll bar padding before you install the side pieces. You can feel the holes in the metal roll bars to position your cuts.

      Great product

      As everyone noted, the most difficult installation detail is getting the screws to line up. Other than that it is pretty straight forward. Took it through a car wash to check for leaks since it isn't suppose to rain here for a week or so. No leaks detected. The quality of the material is excellent, if I had to complain it would be the cost, but I am very pleased with the purchase.

      Sunrider Hardtop

      If you like water inside your Jeep then this is the product for you. I live in an area where rain hits frequently, so not the product for me. Pray it ships with foam seals intact or present, otherwise you will have to ship product back and install twice. Service from ET was flawless, this product is not on them.

      Great addition

      I love this top. You can open and close it in less than one minute. The installation was easy, although the direction can be adjusted to make it easier. When installing the top the directions at one point tell you to tighten all the knobs then close the top. I had to loosen all the knobs to pull the top far enough to grab the front latches. Once I did that it opened and with a lot less effort and no leaks.

      Love the hardtop Sunrider

      After go and back and forth between taken the hardtop off or trying the Sunrider hardtop, because taking the freedom panels off and on got old. I finally bit the bullet and ordered the Sunrider. I have had it on for about two weeks now and love the ease and convenience to get that 'open air' feel.

      Awesome addition to my 2017 JK!

      My boyfriend and I are very different in our approaches while following instructions (he's very meticulous, I rush through it!). I was afraid it would take us hours to install it. We timed ourselves and finished the install in 58 minutes and 15 seconds. You definitely need a helper, but it's not difficult. It looks great, it's easy to open/close and no leaks. Definitely worth the price.

      Nice once installed

      Product has same issues as most have brought up, rain tracks are too short and water comes in vehicle when door is opened after raining or car wash. Install took three tries at about 10 hours total, had to make several trips to hardware store for better sized hardware and had to call Bestop twice to send longer mushroom bolts and screws. Once installed it is fun and easy to use

      Best compromise!

      I wanted a twill oak tan NX Glide, but I am unwilling to spend the bucks for it at this time since we just bought one for our other jeep. SO, I bought the Sunrider instead. I LOVE IT!!! I feel I have the best of both worlds, easy flip back top plus hardtop security. Easy to install. Minor leak at the front corner passenger's side while driving through torrential downpour. I'm still happy though.

      Best of Both Worlds

      Taking the roof panels out is pretty much a 15 minute task if you're agile enough to do it. The Bestop Sunrider takes less than a minute and gives you the option of easily opening and closing the top if you want out of the sun, need to go into a store or run into rain. For me it will be a summer top and I'll go back to the OEM panels in the winter months. I bought the higher priced (a little over a $100.00) fabric and it is awesome.
