Sort of difficult to install
The bolts that came with the kit were very short which made the installation difficultHelpful (1)

4” too short
I have not taken it on the road yet but I am already disappointed. If you have passengers in your two door JK they will get wet in the rain and the seat will get soaked. The picture on the box shows a four-door and the top goes well beyond the back of the backseat to keep passengers dry. Not so with a two door. The back edge of the cover stops over the heads of back passengers. Obviously the rain will flow across the top of the canvas and pour down on any passengers in the backseat. On the other hand I expect it will keep my dashboard dryHelpful (1)

After reading a few of the negative reviews, I was a bit nervous about this top. No need! This is an outstanding product! Simple install and virtually no noise when driving. I haven’t had it in the rain yet but my big concern was the flapping and coming loose that some people had reported. I am beyond happy with this purchase!Helpful (5)

Absolute waste of money.
I only had this product for a few weeks. It required frequent tightening when driving at highway speeds. The knobs for the header bar stick up, and in addition to looking awful wear at the fabric top. The plastic clips for the rear straps aren't remotely strong enough and snapped. I love smittybilt's bumpers and other hard gear, but I will never buy any other soft goods from them. Do not consider this product unless you never plan to go more than 35 miles per hour.Helpful (6)

Works great! Keeps the rain from getting in and is very shady. Makes the wind way better than with it off if your a girl with long hair. Bought it for my husband and he loves it. Only thing I didn’t know when I bought it was you need the bar that it straps to which was also pretty cheap. Love itHelpful (6)

Poor installation instructions
The installation instructions are not very clear at all. The clips for attaching the straps to the vehicle are weak. They broke the 1st day driving down the highway. It isn't fun when your top starts flapping at 60mph.Helpful (6)

Horrible. I live the look but when installing the Hardware broke. Spoke to customer service and they said “ since installation has begun we can not accommodate.” This now sits wrapped up in my garage and will use the top as a tarp for my nephews toys in the rainHelpful (6)

Flaps uncontrollably in the back. Tightening the straps in the back give you a reprieve from the flapping until the straps break leaving you with trying to find a way to tie it down while driving home from a trip. Horrible product. No more Smittybilt for me.Helpful (6)
Does it come with everything needed to install? Does this top require any additional hardware to install or is it something I taker out of the box and put on the jeep? I seen a lot of tops like this one and they all require a windshield channel
It does require a windshield channel which I did purchase. The channel and top was easy to install. Moderate road noise when driving over 55 mph.
Will this help reduce wind noise in the back seats at all when highway driving? I have the mesh version of this top and it doesn't reduce wind noise at all. I'm trying to make backseats more tolerable while on the highway heading to the trails.
This top though it is a solid material and will help more on reducing the noise in the back seats.
Can i put my hard top on along with this top?
Hello, unfortunately you would have to remove the Extended Top to be able to Install your hard top.
Once the mesh top with the windshield channel installed is on, can I put my soft top back up and connect it with teh windshield channel still on, or will I have to take the windshield channel and mesh top off before I can put my soft top back up?
Hello, to be able to install your Soft Top you will have to remove this Extended Top and also the windshield channel if its not the same as your soft top.
what is the difference between the Smittybilt and Barricade shade tops?
The main difference is that the Smittybilt Extended Top, Black Diamond (10-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) is made from fabric similar to a soft top. The BARRICADE FULLSHADE TOP (07-17 WRANGLER JK 2-DOOR) [http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-fullshade-top-jk-J101176.html] is a shade top that is made of mesh and is used to help protect you from the shade but will offer no protection in the rain.
