Thanks!
I am taking pictures and will write up a post once it’s on. I can say right off the bat that the quality is excellent and it is built like a tank
Pictures Please or it didn’t happen.

Yep something happened in transit but the top looks untouched, there was a vertical 2x4 near where it was cracked so I think that is what saved it

Be really really really picky. That thing is too expensive to settle for craptastic shipping. Hopefully there is no misalignment damage for the closures / top scissor supports.

Jeez... I'd be freaking out. I'm freakin out FOR you. Jeez.

Promise more photos tomorrow just got home with the Jeep and J30 is on!!!! I will start off with it was worth every bit of the wait! The fit and finish is excellent! I ended up having the top delivered to a off road shop and I am glad I did the crate was huge and I would not have been able to offload it without a forklift. The fellas at Mount Zion mounted and wired it and did an excellent job. I will take detailed pictures of anything anyone would like the wiring was straight forward and everything works..... pretty sure I am sleeping in it tonight!

Was the awning bracket installed by UM. Does it feel sturdy? I’m guessing there is hardware on the inside for the brackets. Can you take a pic of that?

Has Ursa Minor shipped any JL units? I seem to remember people saying they were expecting theirs that they ordered, but that’s been over a year ago or more.
Did you do any research? Their Insta is loaded with delivered units


There's an outfit (can't remember the name) that sells something similar but only fits a custom extended Wrangler Unlimited body. IMHO it's ridiculous. The departure angle is reduced and the one I saw had tiny bench seats in the back as if it was an RV. Going head to head with Ursa Minor with standard JLU fitment would be more profitable. They would have 1000s more potential customers vs owners of the custom extended Wrangler. All they need to do is get rid of the 6 month waiting, under cut the price and it's game on.
This is an imported unit from a company out of Lubbock. Good luck trying to get a hold of them. I’ve been trying for months


That thing looks good, but is shockingly expensive. Plus at 265lbs, it is not exactly light weight either.
For that money, I would just go with an alu-cab with their 270 awing.
265 minus the 120 the current hardtop weights


I wouldn't expect Ursa Minor lead times to go down anytime soon. Looks like they are making a Bronco version that might be a factory option. Guessing Ford will require some sort of guarantee on delivery time frame.

They’ve said they plan on the Bronco, but have made no plans as of yet. I would be worried about it being a factory Bronco option as this is what has pretty much killed AEV for jeepers

Hopefully I will have pictures to post soon:like:
Talked to John just a bit ago and our top should be crated up and shipped tomorrow!
So excited for you. I’m in the list for a December delivery, but I might push it back to May so I can ship my jeep to Oregon (no sales tax) and make the ride back to CO a nice planned road trip.
