    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.

      Nice but....

      The top arrivedin abox so mutilated that i was worried it was damaged. I sent photos to shipper. The only thing about this that needs fixing is they need to supply hardware that is 1/4 inch longer for bolts. Then it would be a five star unit.

      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.

      Can't Install Yet

      Rating a 2 for Product Defect and Service in fixing this issue. We got our BestTop Sunrider for Hard Top 2 weeks ago. We opened it, had it up on our Jeep top and put the knobs in only to find out one of the knobs was 3/4 inch too short. We have called Extreme Terrain Service Department 4 times trying to get a parts replacement and yesterday they told us they are out of stock. It took that long to find this out. Now they are saying they have to order the knobs from the BestTop directly which we were told will take another 7-10 Days. So, we have no idea how we like our BestTop Sunrider for Hard Top because we can't even install it until they finally send us the proper knobs.

      Great functionality. Overpriced.

      The good: you can flip this at a traffic light or stop sign and be in the wind in a few seconds. The build quality is what you’d expect from Bestop. It took me a couple of hours to install and instructions weren’t great but no complaints about that. It’s not especially attractive but it hits target with functionality. Side eyeing Bestop about the pricing of this product though. They have entire tops - far more complicated than this one - that cost about the same as this Sunrider solution. I’d have liked this to be a couple hundred bucks less.

      Breezy

      So wonderful to finally enjoy my ‘sun roof’ on my 2915 Wrangler. I had removed the panels once (with help) and never again until purchasing Bestop Sunrider. What a fantastic idea! No leaks thus far! So simple to open and close. Actually took about two hours with assistant to install from removal of panels until done. Best to do when warm to stretch it. Lining up to screws was a bit of a challenge. Hopefully it will be easier next time.

      Just what I needed!

      This top is amazing! Perfect tight fit. No leaks. Does not make road noise too loud. I work in an environment that requires all vehicles to be secured on grounds. This means I cannot take the hard top off and leave it off all day. This Sunrider gives me the ability to be able to enjoy the sunny days without having to remove and reinstall the freedom panels on the daily. Time to look for a new job so I can go topless all summer!!!

      Fits like original equipment

      Installed easily. I took my time, so about 2 hours to install. Unlike some other coments I saw, I had no issues with bolt lengths. Fits great, very little wind noise, no diferent than a normal factory convertible (I have had two). Only comment is be careful going through a car wash. High pressure blower to dry vehicle will push water into vehicle at top of window. I had same problem wiyh my 2004 Ford Thunderbird convertible, so just something to accept. Still give it 5 stars in all categories.
