    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.

            Sunrider Top - Nice Product

            Fairly easy installation, quality product. I've had this top for about a year. I've left it on all year long. No leaks and when closed is not to noisy. If you want an easy transition from hard top to open air this is the product you should get.

            Amazing

            Don't know why I waited until mid summer to get this, oh yea, the price, but bang for your buck totally worth it. Install took about an hour with my 15 year old helper. Watch the video, it helps. I live in Michigan, so this will come off in the fall, and put back in the spring, much better than taking the freedom panels off and on constantly. I can put up or down at a red light in about 6.9 seconds.

            Get the open air benefit without the topless commitment. I work in an area that I wouldn’t leave my Jeep open and accessible/ but with the Bestop Sunrider, I can have the best of both worlds.

            Excellent Quality Fit

            I'm very pleased with the quality and the fit. it took less than an hour to install. Two days later we had 3 days of rain - no leaks. The Instructions were adequate. Video was helpful. It's important not to tighten any parts until the Sunrider is completely installed in order that they line up correctly with the holes.

            I bought this top for our 2016 and we love it. It took about an hour to install and it looks nice. It's a bit noisy as far as the wind vibrating on it, but that's to be expected. Overall, we recommend it if you are looking for an easy way to open and close your top.

            So frustrated with this

            I spent all afternoon installing this. It was the most frustrating thing I have ever installed. The reason? The freaking screws are 1/4 inch too short. I finally got it on (with some screws missing and others warped) and went to close the roof and guess what? It’s 1/2 inch too short to even latch! I am taking it to the jeep place tomorrow to see if anything can be done but if not it will be returned. My advice to anyone thinking about this is don’t waste your time or money! I am so disappointed in this and it was not cheap!

            Had this item install with my handyman husband, had a few hiccups but nothing mayor. I’m glad I purchased this, having a lot of fun every day, best part is not having to install the original panels back.

            This product solves all our our headaches when it come to removing the freedom panels and wanting to have that open air feel. It solved the annoyance of taking off the freedom panels and where to store them if you are away from home. I really love it an recommend it to all with freedom hard top panels.

            The installation was not difficult but easier with two people to set in place and align it. Went through a car wash and torrential rain and no leaks. Very easy to unclip and open or close. The directions could have more detail especially in two areas 1. A closeup picture of the gasket to the hardtop. We ended up pinching it in one spot and had to loosen and reset. 2. The directions did not show the two front end pieces with two screws on each and a metal plate we had to figure out. We assume they were to make the front of the top more tension side to side.
