My Sunrider arrived today. Fedex really abused it. The box arrived all taped up (front snd back). It even had a sharpie sticking out!

Everything looked ok but we realized one of the supports is bent when we tried to install it. Ugh.

Good Gawd that’s totally unacceptable, this is how mine showed up

the box did have a few spots on the back side that were dented but it appeared to be just from normal handling

Holy Cow!!!
Have you reached out for a replacement?

By the way, no extra charge for the Sharpie ;)

The second box arrived in good shape. I'm really liking this Sunrider!

Very glad to hear that @Boatbuilder88. What about the Sharpie, though? Does it now live in your center console? Kitchen drawer? Is it the standard black chisel tip or something more unique?

Just a standard Sharpie that is sitting in the garage. :)

I had to use a whole roll of tape to seal the box for shipping back to Quadratec. Hope it survives round 2 with Fedex!

I ordered directly from Bestop and mine came pretty perfect, maybe Bestop threatened to flog the UPS ppl if they damaged the box:like:

I order mine from Bestop and arrived in perfect condition!
The YouTube video is better then the written instruction, took less than 45 mins to install and we love it,

@Bestop really needs to consider assembling the side rails to the top before shipping, that’s honestly the hardest part for some, I had a small issue getting one of the Z clips in but if the rails had already been attached it would have been maybe a 15-20 min install and the box they ship in looks like it would support the rails being installed.

Jumping in on the reviews. Nice product but a few complaints.

1- The packaging is terrible. Mine was flopping around inside the box because the styrafoam on the ends isn't large enough to keep it in place. I am shocked that FedEx didnt damage it. Also, the rails were just sort of tossed in the box bouncing around. Could be FedEx, but looked like it was quickly package by someone who didn't care.
2- They put bar code stickers/yellow stickers on the outside rails facing the door. Even with the door closed you see the stickers and I need to peel/goo-gone them to make it look clean.
3- It barely works with the MOPAR grab handles. The back portion does not leave room for the handle mount, although they easily could have shaved a tiny bit of plastic to account for it.
