This is not your fathers OEM Hardtop

Bought this cap a year ago because I do not need all the extras of a factory hard top and I only had the soft top that came with the jeep when I bought it. When fitting it to the jeep I found the top corners of the doors bind and the gap at the front of the doors are a good 1/2". You have to slam the door to get doors to shut. The front of the roof over the wind shield does not sit down far enough. Then when rains the doors leak and gets the dash and the seats wet from the water splashing inside hitting the door panels and I had to re glue the rear tailgate window molding after 2 months because it started sliding off the window. I tried contacting the dealer to see if I overlooked anything to help the way the top should sit but never had gotten any response. Expensive mistake.

Leaks water and lacks attention to detail.

I ordered this product because of the price and two peice design. Product looks great and is of heavy duty construction in comparison to the OEM version but this hardtop lacks attention to detail. It comes carpeted and tinted glass so that's a plus but The fitment isn't like OEM quality. Mounting holes to the body didn't line up great so I had to buy thinner diameter bolts to compensate. Rear glass bottom molding section came into contact with tailgate when attempting to close the door. I had to drill the hindge holes bigger to adjust the glass further up to clear the door. Also the type of glass they use has a wavy aspect to it when viewed from a certain perspective, looks cheap. Finally most important, you can't get a tight enough seal to keep the water out when it rains. The overall design of the top just doesn't allow it. It leaks from all four corners and was driving me crazy. In the end, I went ahead and purchased an OEM hardtop off someone and it was the best decision ever. I wouldn't recommend this product. Go ahead and spend the extra money on the factory top, you won't regret it.
