Don't know if you can get them anymore but Offroad Heros 1.0. It rolls up and down so you can have open sky or cover in about a minute. The surrounds come off quickly so it can really be opened up if you have the doors off. The only thing you can't do is get it quickly.





Oh yeah, still no leaks.

BEER Helping me do stupid things to my JK since 2007!

How about "None"? Go topless or go home...

Seriously, the factory soft tops are pretty slick once you get used to them--but they don't have any visual cool factor. It's hard to beat a $150 Safari top from Besttop for simplicity, sexiness and replaceability--as long as you don't mind getting wet when it rains. If I was going to spend money on a fully-enclosable soft top, Offroad Heroes would get my money--they just look COOL!

First of all, sell that stupid hard top. Its 1000.00 just sitting in your garage. You know that its a pain in the ass to take on and off. Don't No Jeep Need A Hardtop. Then get the OEM soft top for bad weather. Now, stay with me.... get 2 Best Top brand bikini tops. A solid one for light rain and a mesh one for a bit of shade but great air flow for the nice summer days.

Spring through fall I run the mesh top but keep the OEM soft top under the protective boot on the back of the Jeep to keep the top clean and safe. The windows are all rolled up in a small storage bag that I toss in the back. If we get bad weather I zip it all up - takes less than 5 minutes. If we are just getting some rain over night I toss the trail cover on.

Recent JK sighting in such trim.....

Well, that's how I roll - and chicks dig it

Search craigslist for a stock soft top. I got lucky and found mine, in great shape and with tinted windows for $200 on there.

i believe tim is still shipping the original version of his 4 door top at off road heros.

the two door should be receiving a make over this month.

get the orh top. dont sell your hardtop unless youre that strapped for cash or space. mine sits in the garage about 10-11 months out of the year, but theres no way in hell im selling it.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.

I have a trek top and like it, but would get the offroad heros if i had to do it again. I like that you can configure it in different ways. If that company would try to take care of business, they would probably sell more tops.

I could never get rid of my hardtop, we get to much snow and cold weather in nevada from november- april and I don't like freezin the balls off snow wheelin

So it sounds pretty unanimous that you guys love the offroad heros top I think I might be goin that route now, i'll just have to reconfigure my power tank mount since I got it on the back of the roll bar with the clamps
