      Incredible Quality Jeep Top

      This top arrived in a crate that was busted on 3 out of 4 sides. I couldn’t believe the shape it was in on arrival. Needed to top before we went out of town so accepted the mess when they unloaded it. Folks, I couldn’t believe it! This top wasn’t only not broken or busted - IT WASNT EVEN SCRATCHED! It was simple to install and it’s quiet. Perfect fit!

      Big upgrade from my canvas top.

      We were very happy to find Smittybilt 1 piece hardtop for my 2005 Wrangler Jeep. It arrived in great shape as it was bolted in a crate. We uncrated, then put it right on the jeep, put the bolts in place. It was very simple to install.

      Far better than own hardtop

      After owning several YJ and TJ wranglers with hard tops I purchased this smittybuilt hard top for my 97 TJ. Fits great and the inside sound is carpeted and much quieter than my own top. I can't hear my 35in tires hum like i used to. If you are buying a hard top this is the way to go other than the factory hard top. Money well spent for the cold winter. Mine came in perfect condition. Easy install if you have common sense. Will take a couple strong guys as it seemed heavier than my factory top. Only drawback is even with my 4.6 stroker i can feel the difference of weight with it on.

      Back Glass had a bow in it.

      Very disappointed int he top. The top did not fit one side in the front and the back glass had a bow in it. When it rained water went in the back.

      4 2004 Wrangler - Xyzzy Installation Time: Afternoon

      Mostly a piece of cake.

      It actually took me more time to unbox than to install! I was able to do the entire installation myself right up to the point where I found the six final bolts for the rear glass impossible to tighten without help. Securing the front bolts on the actual top was also difficult, and I think that could have been easily addressed if the bolts provided with the kit were easier to start threading. I never did figure out what I was supposed to do with the weather stripping, so the instructions could have been much better on that point. But now the top is on, secure, and I totally love it!

      Great product

      Shipped in timely manner. Great fit, great looking. Does take 2 people to place on jeep. Straight forward install. Took me about 3 hours, although my unit shipped without the nut plates so I had to go buy some square nuts, which cost me an hour.

      Solid top. good fit, went on with just a little "adjusting" of the bolt holes (drill). Please note; top and crate = 240 lbs, make sure top is "right-side-up" when taking off (disassembling) the crate. The rear window came attached, however the instructions implied it wasn't and indicated how to attach AFTER top was in place on Jeep. Did not take long to place, but getting crate off was puttzy and I was in no hurry. Make life easy and have a couple of buddies around to pick up and place top on Jeep. I can highly recommend Smittybilt as an honest, upstanding company to work with if any problems are encountered!

      Smittybilt 1 piece TJ hardtop

      Overall, I am very satisfied with this top. The only real drawback I see is the lack of a rear wiper, defroster etc. Honestly, it's a Jeep though and I would never use those features, and prefer to have the reduced cost without them. For the cost, I'm glad that I have a new top rather than a used OEM that would have cost almost as much. It fits well when lined up properly, does not leak and looks nice inside and out with the carpet lined interior.

    I watched the video, and I the video he said the glass comes In a separate box. Does he mean just the back glass or all of the glass of the top? I am guessing just the back glass of the hard top and not the whole thing but I just wanted to make sure.

    • The Smittybilt 1 piece hard tops the quarter windows will already be installed. The rear window is the only piece of glass you will need to install on the top.

    Can a roof rack be mounted directly to the hard top? If so do you have a recommendation of one that fits well with its curve?

    • Unfortunately, we do not offer any roof rack that mounts directly to this hardtop. However, you can install a full roof rack system to the surrounding of your Wrangler which will support any type of roof rack or basket you want to place on top.
