I tend to baby my Jeep as it's garage kept, but I'm sure you will not even see issues if left outside. Fairly stout material.
Yeah mine is pretty babied and garaged as well so it should look good for quite a while. Thanks again 👍

Sorry if I missed it. But can this be left on if the rear hard top on a JLU is removed? Or does it need to be removed as well?

Thanks!

It's not designed for that type of use. There is a clamp/mount that holds the back of the Sunrider to the hardtop.

Mine is set to be delivered tomorrow, but I will be out of town for a week, so...I guess I have another project when I get back home. I'm in the mud a lot, and will only have it on maybe 3 months out of the year. So I went with Black diamond. Not being a dark black may actually work in Sting Grays favor.

Been meaning to post this for about 3 yrs now.. :like:

Just wanted to mention that the 16 fl. oz. container of 303 Fabric guard has plenty enough product to do the Bestop Sunrider. Actually, with the 16 fl.oz. container, I can do 3 coats to the SR (letting dry say an hour between coats) and then trash the container.

Yes, I know it is less expensive buying the 32 fl. oz. bottle but, I wonder just how well the product stores, after the seal is broken on the bottle. I only apply bi-yearly so... anyway, with that said, I buy the 16 fl. oz. from Amazon.

So, received my Sunrider about a month ago. Took delivery of the Jeep yesterday and made an attempt to install the Sunrider. Unfortunately, the plastic piece across the front of the top was broken when I pulled it out of the box. I reached out to Quadratec (where I purchased it) and they said to go right to Bestop. Bestop said to send pics and proof of purchase, which I’ve done. Hoping they can get the replacement part out soon.

They are a top notch company and are always quick to resolve issues.

You're going to love it. :like:

Install went smoothly. Z clips were a tad annoying. Initial thoughts are why isn’t this a factory option?!?

We have one on the jk...this is a must have for the jlu. We've had the twill top on our jk year round for almost 4 years...still fits and looks great.

I too have the creaking noise from the clamp on the speaker bar behind my head when the roof is closed. It’s driving me crazy. I added some felt pads to it but that didn’t help. Can anyone offer some ideas?

I just noticed this the other day, does not seem constant but it does get your attention.

I even took the top off and cleaned all the seals again and reinstalled and torqued to spec and still there.

Unfortunately it’s normal. The top contracts and expands with the weather and this one area seems to be affected by that. On mine, it’s noticeable when extremely cold and goes away once the temperature is above 45-50.
