As far as I know, *nobody* gets a proper bag to store the soft top itself. Doesn’t exist.

Dual top owners do the soft top delivered in a box, and the top is wrapped in a vinyl and velcro wrapper *for shipping*. It’s not ideal, but it’s not too shabby for re-wrapping the top for winter storage. It has no handles, no hanging hardware, doesn’t seal up completely with zippers, and the quality of material is what not much better than you’d expect for a single-use item.

Try this, they have Soft top boots for the JL soft top

Thanks for clarifying.:)

What I always do is detach the left and right side, pull the bar out of its holders and flip the bar up on the roof. The window curls nice and gently and doesn’t bend. Only marginally more work than the hard top glass.
Yeah, if I have to load something that requires the trunk, I end up doing the same thing.
Most of the time I just use the back seat. Glad I got the 4 door!

A snap-in air deflector that would fit on top of the windshield vent to partially block and force air more evenly across the windshield.
A flexible gasket/plug to cover the gaps around the tailgate hinges.

As much as I like buying made in USA stuff, these two items would be perfect for Chinese eBay and Amazon sellers that specialize in simple, cheap plastic things.

A way to High mount a CB. Like the one over the rear view mirror on the JK.
I know the post is almost a month old, but would this satisfy what you are asking for?

Based on video clips from SEMA, it looks like Rugged Ridge will be selling wrap-around door sill guards too.
Hopefully without a conspicuous Rugged Ridge logo...

Clearly a superior product and the Mopar ones should have been designed exactly like these Quadratecs. That said, I won't be buying due to the overzealous Quadratec logo. No logo or a simple "Wrangler" would have been acceptable to me.
I don't think the Quadratec logo is too noticeable on the sill guards. Their floor mats are far worse.

Legally they can't make auto up windows. When they first came about some manufacturers had them on the door sills, and you pushed down on them to go up. Well some kid was standing on the sill, hanging out the window when he stepped on the button and choked himself in between the window and the surround. So auto up was banned entirely and you have to pull up on the switch for it to go up, because that's less likely to happen by mistake.
? My TRD Pro and my Suburban has auto up

LED light bar hoop/winch protector that attaches easily to JL stock steel bumper. Similar to this.
