yes thought of that. We have the Buffalo auto show coming Feb 9-11, go figure me and the wife will be in Punta Cana!
Wow, I feel you...
You know what ? Just talked to my wife, and we actually both agreed that we’ll get you tickets to the auto show, THE WHOLE 3 DAYS, and we’ll go to Punta Cana in your place ok ?! I can’t let you suffer like that, I had to come up with something... you’re welcome :)

I am willing to wait for the powered soft top. I really like Jeep's Sky One Touch convertible top configuration. I do wish there was an easy way to remove the back window.

I would imagine taking the doors off more frequently with this format.

with the release of the late arrival colors (blue for me) in the next few weeks, should I order with dual tops or do you think the power top is worth waiting for?
No, just get the stock soft top and have get it replaced with a powered MyTop. They're shipping orders out very soon

I am not a big fan of the regular Jeep soft top due to noise. From everything I've heard the new Sky One Touch power top will be much quieter.
It's a hope of a quieter cabin... is what I'm waiting for.

I think it will be like a really big sunroof. It's cool how the back windows come off but I bet in practice people rarely do it.

They all have compromises so you just have to figure out what makes sense. I am a soft top guy all the way but I don't live in Buffalo!
See Corvette targa owners.

The mytop is actually triple insulated and quieter than the hardtop

The inventor says it at 0:24
(and it's nowhere near 15k, he was just making a point)
One problem I see with this top, for me, is that when it is down I couldn't get my dog in the back.
Has anyone seen the TrekTop NX Glide for the JK? It is very similar to the JL soft top but with a slant back. This is what I am waiting for.

And here he mentions the insulation details
Sorry, thought they were talking about the « one touch sky top » (not sure about the name lol)
This is interesting, still curious though about how quieter it could be than the hard top, since the fabric itself offers more friction than the hard top, and has also more « edges »... but I’m not an engineer so who knows lol

That mytop thing I wonder how it would be getting into the back with the top up as well! If the window doesn’t “pop up” like a hard top that could be a pita.
