Shutting it is tricky, because if you don’t get it exactly right, it leaks, waterfall in on the driver side of mine. When you put the top down, the windows get caught in the mechanisms in the back and permanently wrinkled. After install, the back window has permanent markings on it, which they did give me a partial refund for it.
I have tried numerous times to shut it and get the windows to fold incorrectly but they will not so unless I want the windows ruined. I don’t wanna put the top down which means it’s useless to me.
Love how easy it is to put the top up & down. When the top is down it seems a little bulkier then the Original soft top and the view in the back seat is very restrictive due to all the frame work. But I don't sit in the back seat so not a big deal. Also when its up and going down the highway it has more wind noise then the original soft top but I guess that should be expected. Over all the construction is great and it should last a long time.
best top for a jeep. opens nicely and we use it often here in florida.Our softtop we never opened as it was too much work.This top is perfect for us and we use it a lot.
