Time to market for both versions would be the same. They told me they are targeting availability next month but I don't know how firm that is.Tell them let's do this, i don't even care which one, whatever is fastest.
They might entertain a group buy, I'll pass the comment along to them.Hear hear!! Let’s get a group buy to incentive them!! Hook (pun) us up!!!
For the JK/JKU version, they just do black canvas with brown leather accents (it's real leather, not vinyl). They haven't done any other colors but in some quantity (a group buy?) they might be willing/able to do some color other than brown leather or black canvas.I like the second style. I would buy something like this. I would prefer black with red accents to match my interior though.
Do you have a link or picture of the molle version for the JK/JKU? I looked on their website and can’t find it. I wanted to see how easy/difficult it would be to modify an existing molle panel, pouch, etc. to make it work.What about something like this? Overland Outfitters recently released door pockets for the JK/JKU and they're now planning to do something similar for the JL/JLU/Gladiator. Here are two prototypes:
They're trying to decide which version to go with; if anyone has any feedback post it and I'll forward it on to them.
They've also done a Molle version for the JK/JKU but the pocket version is much more popular so they tell me they might not to a Molle version for the JL.

BTW The brown strips on the panel are real leather.
The Molle is only in the front because the rest of the panel is close to the seat when the door is closed and there isn't really enough room between the seat and the door to hang any Molle gear.Thanks. I was expecting the entire section to be molle vs partial. I’ll see if I can come up with a DYI full molle mod.
I was thinking of a built-in slim molle pouch by the seat section which is wide enough for gloves, basic tools, etc. and a wider built-in pouch in the forward section. If there is enough room for gloves, etc. with the net version, there *should* be enough room for a thinner molle pouch if the mounting points are recessed with the door curve vs flat where the net is currently at. I’ll give it a try and report back.The Molle is only in the front because the rest of the panel is close to the seat when the door is closed and there isn't really enough room between the seat and the door to hang any Molle gear.
The company says based on feedback the second version is the one they'll be going with, that has gotten the most interest:I like the second version better, I am also in on a group buy. And I second an all black version. Are the also thinking of doing one for the rear doors?
The JL/JLU/Gladiator version hasn't been tested in a Jeep yet (they may be looking for an early adopter to do some testing), but the company had a JKU with the pockets installed at the New Jersey Jeep Invasion last week and some people who were wondering the same thing got in the Jeep to try it out and the company tells me nobody had a problem with the pockets hitting their leg.there isn’t much room (depth) there so I would be curious to see if the pouches start to rub on my leg (non-starter for me if so).
Sounds like a great solution.Someone with some skills should make a molle solution to this. Doesn’t need to be a useable “net” but a place where you can mount different accessories like a zipper bag or a cup holder… I would do it but I don’t have said “skills.” My idea is free though!
