Sorry to be the Debby Downer but the Sunshade is sold separately. Look at it like this, now you have two things to look forward to.
So long, money. I didn't want you anyway.

Yep. I've been stalking Cassie from Bestop (not in a take me to court way) for that Sunrider. Had it on my JK and loved it. You won't be disappointed on either.
Has Cassie said when it will be ready? Any updates as of late?

"Please don't take frustrations out on Besttop," he says, barring no relationship to them. I suspect they are busier right now than the proverbial Lucille Ball in the chocolate making factory producing soft tops for their number #1 client, FCA, on the new JL. Unlike FCA, I suspect they don't have people to outsource their business to, which is very craft/skill intensive, at reasonable price, without compromising quality.

how's the wind noise level in comparison to the freedom panels on the JK? Even being in CA with no random thunderstorms, it's nice to have a quick option to button up the top to thwart potential thieves...

I like the idea of these on a JK but IMO on the JL it's uneccessary as the freedom tops are so ridiculously easy to remove. In fact the new tops are likely my favorite feature added to the JL next to the improve ride.

I thought this too until someone from Florida (read: frequent afternoon thunderstorms) pointed out to me how you don't have to pull over and get the Freedom Panels out to be protected from rain. Again, as I stated prior, if you're driving on the highway right into a storm headed in the opposite direction, you may have little time and opportunity to pull over between "storm discovery and storm drench."

I love this product, but as a NYer, I do agree with you @1quick1 that it may have less applicability for me.

Sigh: so few products to buy, so much money.;)
