Ordered last Sept, got to take delivery of my J30 top at Ursa Minor today. Long day of down and back to Portland, but was fun seeing the shop/meeting John and shooting the shit about how he started this company.

Looking forward to making a review vid from the perspective of a retired auto technician - doing my own wiring and John was cool about giving me a greatly reduced installation rate.

Congratulations! The Ursa Minor is definitely the way to go.
I get more envious every time I see a finished install.

Thx. Best part - 24mpg down, 24mpg back. Zero discernable mpg hit.

I envy you (can't wait for mine), I ordered mine early January 2021...hoping to get it before November for a 7 day Utah excursion by the Maze district. John said maybe by end of June (finger crossed).

Whats your overall height installed?
I will check later - but I can barely (but fully) pull into a standard garage door size garage. That's on a Rubi, too, which sits a little higher than a sport or sahara. Rule of thumb is normal size garage you should be good to go.

Rad - yea they're slammed. John wasn't incorrect when he said they couldn't build em fast enough at this point. It's definitely a pain to wait, but will be worth it. I have zero issues with mine. I'm waiting on a nicer day to shoot a review. There's a few floating out around on youtube but none from the angle I want to take - materials and construction from the perspective of a retired tech. There's good things to be said about these things, and a few design areas that could be improved (but don't amount anywhere near a complaint.)
