Maximize the versatility and comfort of your Jeep Wrangler with an Extended Top. Smittybilt tops are crafted from the most durable components, and designed for a hassle-free installation. With a variety of colors available, along with convenient and functional features, Smittybilt has all the Soft Goods you need to help make driving your Wrangler a truly gratifying experience.
No fault of your own but the manufacturer looking to safe a few dollars has plastic hooks to clasp on the the body of the jeep. Got only one good use out of it and that was all. Was patient enough when it was back ordered for a few months. Needless to say Smittybilt needs to change a letter in their logo. (Certain this barb has been used before) Again, need to state no fault of your company but of the manufacturer.
The top does not fit well and flaps in the wind so bad that it would wear a hole in your rollbar wrap. The matching header isn't any good either. No videos on line or with Smittybilt to help fix problems. Looking for a better product.
I first waited two and a half months for this to be delivered because it was on back order and nobody bothered to say so when I ordered it. When it did show up, in November, I noticed the box said it was for a 2010 even though I specifically ordered for a 2012. I called 4WD and they said it should fit a 2012 without issue. I was very careful to follow the directions but the thing simply sags in the front and there is no way to tighten it enough to keep it from doing so. The back of the top is longer in an attempt to cover the rear seats but there is no bar to support the back portion of the top so it flaps wildly when you pass 45 mph. I tried to tighten it but the seams were starting to pull at the point where the straps connect. I removed the top and repackaged it for return. The next day I decided maybe I had done something wrong and would give it a second shot. Same deal...the thing simply does not fit. I emailed 4WD to get an RMA. They said the manufacturer insists that the 2010 top will fit a 2012 and that I just need to tighten it down more. Since the seams were already pulling I didn't think tightening more would be a wise idea. When removing the top from the front channel bar for return the snaps came apart, broke, rather than simply unsnapping. All in all this is a poorly designed and cheaply produced item. I have purchased two Smittybilt items for my Jeep and both have had poor fit and finish. If they spent as much time designing quality into their products as they do taking great staged photos to sell them the products would sell themselves. The only good thing I can say about this experience is that 4WD returned my money without too much hassle.
