The Exo-Top is an innovative new design that for the first time ever combines the joy of top-down driving with the utility of a roof rack, taking convenience, function, and style to new levels by allowing Jeep owners the ability of conveniently lowering, raising or removing the soft top with ease without having to unload gear from the roof-rack cargo. By combining the soft top and roof rack, owners can experience a Jeep to its full potential for camping, off-roading, or any lifestyle hobby they may have. This new top also features an innovative Sun Slider retractable function which allows the top to slide back with the release of just two latches, creating an open-top experience for owners without the hassle of getting out of the driver seat. Integrated into the 350-lb. capacity roof rack is an advanced externally suspended soft-top design that fastens using a series of Velcro straps along the perimeter bars of the roof rack. The pulling force applied by the Velcro helps to tighten and shape the soft top. The Exo-Top features a patent-pending design that is a direct bolt-on application with no drilling required for installation. Note: Additional parts are required for installation: windshield header, tailgate bar, tailgate retainer right and left side (kit part # RUG13516.10).
My rating of this product is 4.8 out of 5 stars. (Excellent) Overall I am very impressed with the Rugged Ridge EXO-TOP. It's a head turner for sure. I'm getting stopped by Jeepers all the time asking about the top. I am now an expert in removing and putting the top on because I've been asked to demo it so many times. It seats well and does not leak. It is as quiet as the factory soft top. If you are in the market for a roof rack, I highly recommend this product.
Hi, I have a 2013 JK Moab edition with no body modifications. Does this soft top come off completely without removing the rack or does it only open in the Freedom Top area?
