    We don't have any plans to come out with a bikini top at this time. For now we will have our hands full redesigning the rest of our products for the JLU! :whew:

    We take pride in manufacturing and supporting the people/economy in our new hometown! We are signed up to help sponsor our first Jeep® event and have added multiple new people in manufacturing!

    Our top is super quick to install, once you get the buckles set up the first time. Out of the package they need to be adjusted from packing position, but when you take it off after that, you only have to loosen the straps a little bit. The straps clip on and off with our signature, military grade compression buckles which literally take seconds to clip and unclip. I'd say once you have some experience you should be able to get it installed in ...maybe five minutes? It's SUPER easy, in my humble opinion!

    Stored, you'd just roll the top as you're taking to off the roll cage to make it easier to reinstall. Our metal rods that make up the support system in the front and rear require it to be rolled versus folded, so it would look like a tube, I guess would be the best shape to describe it.

    As for the rain... it is mesh top, rather than solid vinyl so water will inevitably drip through. At 30-40 MPH the shade does help keep water out, but once you stop for a stop sign/light, you will DEFINITELY get wet.

    Thanks for your questions! I hope this has helped answer some of them!

    We have the JL again tomorrow to run through final fitment testing. We want to make sure we get everything exactly right. We are on track to start shipping on the first, just want to make sure the patterns on the CNC are cutting appropriately and the tops made with those blanks are perfectly fit!

    Thank you very much!

    I just checked your order. I see it is for a black, placed on April 12th. There are several orders before yours, so we can't guarantee that it will ship May 1st. That is the day we will start shipping, and we will do our best to get everything out as quickly as we can, but we have to fill orders in the order in which they were received.

    Thank you very much!

    I live in Seattle and so rain is always a possibility! I like how your cover goes all the way out to the roll bar widths. Do you have any plans for a more water tight or solid vinyl version? -Even if not 100% non drip, it would go a long way to keeping the hard top off longer.

    @VinnyV2 We don’t have any definite plans right now. Our first priority is to bring all our current products up to JL spec. I can definitely add your name to the list of those who’ve requested a vinyl top.

    Thank you very much!

    Do you plan to offer the JL shade top in the Toxic camo? I didn't see it as an option on the web site.

    @JTopsUSA Is there a rough estimate of the ETA for the 2-door JL shades? August or September, maybe? I know it has been a waiting nightmare even getting a 2-door delivered.

    How do you stop the sag in the front section with the freedom panels in? I love the shade with the top off or the freedom panels off, but when installed with everything back on and buttoned up the front sags because there is nowhere to tuck it or attach it to.
