  1. Bestop negative experience?

    Glad your experience was good, but the fact that they made me pay $230 to return a defective product tells me there's something wrong with their business practices...
  2. Paint fix after hard top removal?

    Thanks all! And now I learned that if the doors are on when I put the top on or off, to open the rear doors so they're not anywhere near...
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Removed my hand crank winch setup and went with a powered winch. Using straps to lift the top since I just need to lift it up enough to pull the jeep out, then lower it onto the scaffolding I store it on. Other than it swinging and scratching the rear passenger door behind the window, it...
  4. Paint fix after hard top removal?

    Top swung unexpectedly when winching off, and scraped up the rear passenger door pretty good. I elbow greased the heck out of it hoping it was crap rubbed OFF onto the paint from the interior of the hard top, but after all I did, this is what's left, feels with a fingernail like it's scratches...
  5. Jeep Wave Tire Rotation

    I was surprised to find out my Jeep wave rotation this morning was only 4 tires. Most people I know with wranglers around the country got 5 by default, and a few who only wanted 4 had to specify that otherwise they would've ended up with 5. This is the first time I've seen someone mention that...
  6. 5 tires rotation

    I just had the dealer do my first oil change and rotation via the Wave program, and was disappointed when I got home and looked under the spare tire cover that it was still new, they only did a 4 wheel rotation... Wish I had checked at the dealer. I had stupidly assumed they'd just do the 5...
  7. Tire Rotation - 4 or 5 Tires?

    I just had my first rotation done by the dealer via the Jeep wave, and was actually disappointed when I got home to find they only rotated the 4, they ignored the spare. For me, the full sized spare has always been part of my rotations, even when my Jeeps were just grand cherokees and such...
  8. Hot seat solutions with top off?

    Yeah, I just bought two of those blue Jeep covers... If they get stolen they get stolen. They'll get used a lot more places than outside of Chicago so maybe I'll get some use out of them before someone does a 5 finger discount on them... Besides I had enough points at Amazon that two of them...
  9. Hot seat solutions with top off?

    Downside with something like that is if I go somewhere like Great America outside of Chicago someone will steal them for sure... I don't see people likely to steal a fitted bedsheet. ;) For me I care less how it looks since I won't be there anyway, just want the functionality.
  10. Hot seat solutions with top off?

    still leaves seats vulnerable from sun coming in at an angle with doors off depending on time of day and angle of sun. Not that big a deal for me I've had convertibles for decades so my rear can deal with it, but my son is young and has issues with it especially if he's in shorts... Sometimes...
  11. Hot seat solutions with top off?

    Got the spiderwebshade for the front already, but that does not do much for the hot seats in a sitting jeep since it only partially blocks the sun, and nothing at all for the angles if the doors are off and the sun is coming in off the side. I got that just to keep my head from peeling too much...
  12. Hot seat solutions with top off?

    Since I had to return the junk Bestop soft top, I'm left with removing the hard top for the time being for an open feeling. Not a big deal, I have a hoist in the garage and a scaffolding suggested in another thread to store it longer term if I want out of the way. But I have the dark leather...
  13. Bestop negative experience?

    Finally got a box to return this junk - $230 I have to pay out of pocket to return a product that was defective. This is just unbelievable. I've never had a company force me to pay return shipping for something that was defective, and didn't work... I know all my future jeeps will only be...
  14. Bestop negative experience?

    Doh! I didn't even notice what you said with the description of the Diamond version right there, I was thinking of the other poster who specified they also had the twill.... Sigh... I need some Jack Daniels apparently. ;)
  15. Bestop negative experience?

    Interesting, mine was the JL 4 door twill but different part number - 56863-17 But both go to the same page, so I wonder if in the back end, there's a new product with some changes for the problems they had... I put your part or my part and they both go to the same page that doesn't show a...
  16. Bestop negative experience?

    I wonder if there's a difference between sailtop and twill. Maybe we should have people chiming in with which they have... My problem one is the twill...
  17. Bestop negative experience?

    And right there you captured exactly my thoughts when I had purchased this. "They make the tops for Jeep, so clearly they know what they're doing and I can rely on this." Unfortunately, no. And it seems they don't want to admit that anyone other than YOU ever had a problem. And when we...
  18. Scaffold for Hardtop storage and removal works great

    Walmart now has it for 129 and free shipping. Mine will be here in 3 days, just placed the order... Mine will be a 4 door top, but for me it'll be easy since I'll use my garage ceiling hoist to lift it a few inches and drive the jeep out, then just lower it on this scaffolding. I don't have a...
  19. Bestop negative experience?

    I had sent them videos as well - even a video of me standing outside of the rear passenger door, simply tugging gently on the top and how easily it would pull out. Seems everyone who contacts them for support for things are always "the first one" that Bestop heard about it from...
  20. Bestop negative experience?

    Thanks for that MrMischief, I hadn't seen that in my searches. Can't just flip it open or closed while sitting at a light, but still... Time to dig into this one some. :)
