People generally defend their purchase no matter what. Many people happy with the SOT, would've been happy with a regular hard top or soft top because it's theirs. Kind of like how a car looks better when you're the owner of it. Not to mention this isn't anything complex, you don't need to own the top to know there's potential downsides. Kind of a silly comment to make, most people here did a lot of research prior to purchasing.The overwhelming (all but one, I believe) negative replies are from folks who don’t have the SOT. I personally love it. Every top option has pluses and minuses, but the ability to open and close the top whenever I want, in just a few seconds, is priceless. I’m willing to bet there are lots of hardtop users who want to remove their top in nice weather, but pass, due to the storage/hassle. Like many have said, if I experience problems after the warranty is up, it can be removed to install another top option.
Good thing you didn't buy a vehicle that was designed to be modified! Do you have the same perception of the rest of the mods that people here discuss?For anybody to say it'd be okay to just buy another top down the line, I think that's blasphemy but to each their own.
Replacing a $4000+ Power Top because it isn't working isn't a modification. I guess when you change out your battery after 3 years, that's a "mod" to you too.Good thing you didn't buy a vehicle that was designed to be modified!

If the V6 is blown, that's a replacement, not a modification. Regardless, like your original comment, this is a false equivalency. 3.6 to 392 is an upgrade. SOT to any other OEM top is downgrading. To buy a $4000 upgrade and be okay with it failing after not so long is stupid and wreaks of blindly defending your purchase without merit.Or drop in a 392 when the v6 is blown? Yep, that's a mod.
With 40 years of law enforcement, Just when you thought you seen it all! NO! you didn't!There's a chance that they'll be cut, but the butt-end of a knife could definitely be used to break your window.
It seems extremely unlikely that someone would climb up on top of a Jeep to start cutting through an SOT, especially since it's probably not obvious that it's a cloth top to the casual thief. Put on 37s or larger for 2+ more inches, plus a 3" lift and you reduce that visibility even more.
Sorry, here's a you tuber doing it:I can't seem to find those posts. Mind pointing them out?
So if I understand correctly you won’t buy something because you are unsure of how long it will last. But in the 4 years since it came out there have been no major issues with it so far.Replacing a $4000+ Power Top because it isn't working isn't a modification. I guess when you change out your battery after 3 years, that's a "mod" to you too.
