my wife and i both have the new JL with soft top. love just tossing it back in the first position as I call it (not taking all the way down) for most trips and such. i've had mine all the way down once so far and the back windows were tricky the first time but not to bad once you learn the tricks. as you do it a few more times it will losen up a tad and make it easier to put up and down.put the soft top on today.. gee whiz what a pain in the butt.
But we got it done. I’m not sure if I like it. I am impressed how quiet it is with it on.
The soft top rails just look weird when the top is thrown back. And I don’t like that the windows have to be undone to throw it back. I suppose you get used to it and it should only take a minute to do. I’m going to give it a few weeks and see if I like it. If not then it will go up for sale.
The naked look is much better. But what do you do if it rains? Get one of those throw on covers?
I wish I was located in a climate where it doesn’t rain much but not so here.
