        This looks like what I want - I would like to take the two roof pieces off that are above the front seats and have something I can easily open and close. Is that what this is? If I take off the two roof panels this will replace them????

        • The Black Forest Gear ThrowBack Soft Top will replace the factory front freedom panels on your hard top with a soft top piece that can fold back.

        How is the Highway and rain noise with this soft top on compared to the Hardtop? Would I still be able to have a conversation using the hands free Bluetooth?

        • This would be a little louder background noise compared to the hardtop but you will be able to have Bluetooth conversations.

        • To install this product it will require light to moderate mechanical skill, and this is also a no drill installation.

        Is this a stand alone soft top or does it require the purchase of a frame to install ?

        • This would come with all necessary hardware included. It is best to check the weatherstripping on the Wrangler if the weatherstripping is not in good condition it would be highly recommended to replace it to ensure a tight fit.

        I have a 2016, 4 door, wrangler sport, 3 piece hard top. Once I remove the 2 pieces above the driver and front passenger seats and this is installed, can you switch back to the original hard top easily or is it another install. I am looking for something interchangeable for like a day at the beach then back to the hard top. Or if you have another suggestion on a top. Thank you for your time. 1 answer

            Works great, but not quite "perfect"

            Had it on for about a month now, and it's been great. No leaks at all so far, even though with some of the gaps I thought I would have an issue. Install wasn't too bad. It did take me about an hour, but only because I ran into a couple issues. The side bolts were indeed a PITA to get to catch the threads. I had to stand inside on the seats and really push down on the side rails to get them to catch. Then there was an issue with the left mushroom knob nut-cert. There are little wire retention clips that I think are to hold the bolt in place while pushing them in. This one was bent in a little too much and was blocking the bolt from going into the nut-cert all together. I had to use a pair of needle nose to gently bend it back from the hole a little. Just enough to get the bolt in. I snugged down the side bolts to where they are tight, but I didn't crank on them to much. The mushroom knobs seemed more difficult to gauge how tight is too tight. I didn't want to tighten all the way "gorilla tight" (like with freedom tops). So, I went tight and then backed off a little. Definitely quite a bit noisier. I've only had the hardtop on, and have the BedRug headliner kit (pretty thick foam) and it's generally very quiet inside. So, I expected the extra noise. No wind leaks along the front seam. At least not that I could feel. One observation/gripe... there is very little clearance between the front latches and the windshield header. Have to use the very tips of fingers to pull the latches open, and the edge is pretty sharp so it isn't all that comfortable. I put some black KT on the edge and that helped it out quite a bit. Some kind of indentation on the latch (or flare them out a little) that allowed for more of a finger grip would be a good improvement. This may also help the latches clear the visors without having to pop them out and move them out of the way.

            Best Hybrid top ever!!

            Very simple install took maybe 30 mins , looks great , material is awesome. It does have normal wind noise but way less than a standard soft top. Takes a whole 20 seconds to open and maybe 30 to close. Haven’t seen any leaks. So far extremely happy yes it is expensive but if you want the best of both worlds this is truly the way to go!

            Nice top

            It's a nice top. It is much louder when on the highway, helps drown out the kids screaming, but adds a level of conversation dampener. However, the sunny days when you can just throw back the top is so very nice. If you plan on long road trips, I'd switch to the hard top panels. I'm sure it'd be quite a bit more expensive to insulate a soft top. Appearance is nice and rich looking. Install wasn't too bad, a second set of hands are key.

            Love this option, real easy install. Took about an hour and a From taking the freedom panels off to the entire install. Only issue I had was one thumb knob didn’t line up exactly, but if you have someone push from above it finally catches. And I have to say, pouring rain. I had no water in the Jeep. No matter how windy. Noise level is not that bad when closed at highway speeds. I am very happy with this purchase.

            Awesome Product

            I installed Black Forest Gear ThrowBack Soft Top today, Only took about 20 minutes. Took it for a ride, It rained hard for about 10 minutes and no leaks!! Great product. I do not have to haul my Freedom Panels around anymore. This is by far the best product for Hard Tops that I have seen. Great Job!!!

            I dig it!

            I was going back and forth between between this and the sunrider for hard top. I finally decided on this one due to things I've read on forums about the two. The install was pretty easy. I did it alone, took my time and from opening the box to cleaning up it took me about an hour. I took it for a spin and I didn't hear much wind noise. I took the hose to it for about 20 minutes and drenched it using every head setting (7 of them) from different angles and had ZERO leakage. Last but not least, I'm still able to use my Alien Sunshade with it as well. Overall I love it, it's definitely a bit pricey but I don't mind paying a bit more for convenience.
