Wow! That’s amazing! I thought Kansas through Colorado to Utah to Kansas to Florida to Kansas to Missouri to Kansas to Oklahoma to Kansas to South Dakota to Kansas to Arkansas was a lot

With all that metal, I would assume that it’s going to make a lot of noise when driving around day to day. Rattle, clank, rattle, clank.......

True?

No, it is insulated where the lid and removable pieces touch the other metal and the pins are snug. You’ll get a hint of a squeak here and there but it’s dead silent fir the most part

I think so. In what is now my fourth Wrangler, I have always run doorless and/or topless in warmer weather and had the issue of limited secure space. This solves the problem and you can pull a few pins to have your open space back when you need it. What do you think?

Cool product but MOPAR's likely to be undercut in price and overcut in quality by aftermarket on this.

Then there's FCA's desire--FWIW--of getting people to think this about open air driving:

not this:

Question: "Should this Be a Factory Option?"

Answer: A Big Hell Yes!!!! Just seeing the Slipstream just addressed a big concern about securing stuff. And this may have given me a new way on how to hook up a rear video camera to record tailgating dumbasses.

The only question I have is how much weight can the covers support.

I watched the video...... do I understand correctly that the top (hardtop) has to be removed for this installation?
