It's expensive, but worth it. The most used mod I have on the Jeep. I ordered the Bestop twill version on Amazon for $855 and had it the next day. That's still the Amazon price.

It will also shave about 20lbs off your Jeep, thus increasing your 0-60 time by .02 seconds.

Do you really think that the Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop is " 20lbs" lighter then your Freedom Panels..

Actually the Bestop Sunrider, Twill is a tad heavier then the weight of the 2 Freedom Panels.

That was a bit of comedic exaggeration, but the two panels are definitely heavier than the Sunrider, just not by much. The panels are 15lbs each. The Twill SR is 25lbs and the black diamond is 33lbs.

Twill Sunrider with it's hardware is heavier then the 2 Freedom Panels..

Actual shipping weight of the Twill is 38# ..... the cardboard shipping box weighs very little...

Freedom Panels weigh about 12 ish# each...

Just can’t justify ordering the Mopar with the shipping costs?
For me it was cheaper than getting the Bestop, that's why I pulled the trigger on the Mopar. Got it at $795 from a local dealer, I just had to go pick it up.

And yes I believe it's the same design/material as Bestop.

@WSG55

What is the warranty on the Mopar offering... I thought it was a year..

To me paying the $55 or whatever more to get a limited lifetime warranty would have me going with the Bestop, TWILL...... Especially since the zclips when they break more often then not break after a couple of years...

Regardless, you will enjoy your SR!!
