Hey guys, today I'm here with the Lange Originals roof panel storage system fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So this is gonna be for the JK owners with a hard top looking for a very easy and intelligent storage solution for the T tops on their Wrangler. So everybody loves to enjoy that open-air driving experience that the Jeep gives us. However, for us hard top owners, that can be a little bit more difficult because it is a big and bulky system. So the first thing that we usually go to is the freedom panels. However, when you take them off, finding a place to store them and trying not to damage them in the process can be a pain in the butt. So this Lange Originals storage system is going to be a very easy, safe, and convenient way to store your freedom panels in the back of your Wrangler. So, like I mentioned, this is a very easy storage solution. All you have to do is attach two straps with a couple foam bumpers, and that's really all that it consists of. So this is gonna be very convenient to whenever you wanna take your T tops off, you can store them in the back of your Wrangler, and you can put them on whenever you like if you're on the go for any popup storms or just if you just need to throw your T tops back on. This is also gonna be a very safe storage solution because of the foam bumpers keeping them separated so they're not bumping into each other, and scratching, and damaging either side of the T tops. So, at the moment, this is gonna be one of your most affordable options on the site right now for a freedom panel storage solution at roughly $60. Other more expensive solutions will consist of bags that will just enclose the T tops and prevent them from damaging each other. However, those can still be thrown in the back of your JK or they'll consist of bigger bags that you can lay down here, and that will take up a lot of cargo space. There are other solutions like this that will be a decent amount more expensive that will keep your freedom panels in the back. However, they will slant them down, giving you a lot more visibility. However, those will be more in-depth and they will sacrifice some of that cargo space. So if you are concerned with cargo space, this one will not jeopardize that at all. You still will have a very big area in the back here for whatever you want to take with you on the go while still being able to put your T tops in the back. The only thing that I do have to say about this is that you're not getting the most visibility out of this, but if you're not concerned with that, and you just are looking for a very simple, easy, and convenient way to store your T tops in the back of your Wrangler, then this is gonna be it. So install's gonna be a very easy, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It's probably going to take you about 30 minutes to get installed the first time. But since this is a very simple system, you should be getting quicker and quicker along as you go. So this will not require any tools to get this installed, but they will give you a little clip that will help you with keeping the freedom panels in place while you're strapping them down, which is very helpful. So speaking of that, let's jump into the install now. So the first step to this install is obviously to take off your T tops. Now, obviously, we took off our whole top, and that's just to give you guys a better visual. So you will grab the bottom foam, and we're gonna put those in place in our cargo area. So you wanna make sure that the pointed end is facing in, and that's just gonna give it a snug fit up against your back seat that's slanted. Then we can just put those into place, and we can adjust these in a minute. And then we can grab our straps. So now we can go ahead and attach our straps. Now, this is gonna be two pieces. To attach these, we will disconnect this buckle here. From what I can tell, these are made of nylon. They're going to be pretty heavy-duty, which is good. And that's what we want to hold our T tops in place. We don't want them moving around and damaging themselves or damaging anything else in your cargo area. These buckles seem to be pretty heavy-duty. They're not flimsy like a lot of other options that I have seen before on other products that include heavy-duty nylon straps and buckles. These actually live up to the heavy-duty name. So what we're gonna do is take our smaller strap. They will be different sizes. So we're going to hook this bottom anchor down to our child seat belt hoop. Then we can take the longer strap and loop that around our headrest here. And we're just gonna leave this in place until we put in our T tops, and then we can do the other side before we do that. So now what we're going to do is put in one of our T tops. I have the driver side. I recommend to put this one in first with the inside facing the back of the seats. And then when we put in the passenger side, the top of the T top, what you see here will be facing this driver side T top. So they'll be back-to-back. So you don't have the latches or any of the clips rubbing up against the back of here, and it will stay protected and damage-free. So we're going to place this in the foam, and then what we can do to keep this in place is to put this strap over, and we can take the provided tool, and we can attach it here. So that will stay in place while we grab our passenger side T top. So now, what we can do is place in our passenger side T top. Like I said, these will be facing back-to-back. Obviously you're just going to place it in the slot closest to you and fold this over so it doesn't get lost. And then what you can do is take your foam inserts, and this will hold it in place. This is just going to, like I said again, protect the T tops from hitting each other, damaging each other because you definitely don't want scratches on here. So now that we have both of our T tops in our cargo area, we can go ahead and strap them down, taking the bottom strap, making sure that it is underneath both of the freedom panels. What I'm gonna do is actually tuck this behind the latch here just so it is secure. And then we can clip that into place. We do have our clip here. We're just going to go ahead and tighten that up against our backseats. Now we can do the same thing for the other side. So that's gonna wrap it up for my quick review and install on the Lange Originals roof panel storage system for your trunk, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.
