Willing to ship? Is it the newer version with separate front and rear sections for the top? Can you post photos or a link to the top?

What year is the top? Single roof panel or split? Is there a tailgate bar or no? Do you have the cargo top tonneau cover as well? Do you have the door surrounds? Does the portion above the door have velcro or plastic tabs?

One of the reasons at least one pic is required in your for sale ad is so people know exactly what they're getting. Pics would fill in a lot of blanks in your ad.

Not sure of the year. It has a single roof panel. It does not have the Tailgate bar. I don't have the cargo. The portion above the door has velcro. I will send out pics today. It does not have door surrounds.

You're unsure of the year? Tim swapped from single to double panels in 2009, so that top's got to be older than April of 2009, which is when he made the swap to double panels.
When was it purchased from Tim?
Did you receive it second hand?
How you keeping the top on the Jeep without door surrounds? These are a pretty key element to the top since Tim's design will not function with the OEM surrounds as far as I know. This is why he includes them. Plus, it would just flap all the hell over the place without these in place.

My pre 2009 had steel bars that replace door surrounds and the top secures to them with velcro, this one should have the same i assume.

Christ.
The same guy bitching is the same guy pleading the single panel was superior in another thread. Now it's awful?
Slippery, we keep missing each other on the trail but just go look at it and decide for yourself. You seem somewhat local to the seller. I would get it myself if my ORH top wasn't only a year old. Tim changes the top every 4-6 months. He'll even tell you that himself.
I personally, like the guy. He'll tell you things will change again soon.
Mad scientist, he is.

Are we reading the same thread? I'm trying to see whether or not this is the product I think it is.

Maybe I was wrong. I thought you were against ORH changes that went from full roll over to half roll over.

Again maybe I was wrong, but I think not.

It has the steel bars. It came with a jeep I recently purchased. I am assuming by all the posts that it is pre 2009.

The steel bars surrounding each door that you velcro the roof panel onto and then slip the plastic tab from the side window of the fastback rear into on the side of the door are Tim's version of door surrounds.

Based on your posts, it certainly sounds like you have a pre-swap top.

How's the clarity of the rear window holding up?

Yep, you were wrong. Not sure what might have given you the impression I like the two panel top better than the single panel design, but I'll simplify my position on that since it seems to bother you so much. Here you go, just for you:

Single panel top= GOOD
Simpler design, rolls forward for open air and back to button up in seconds, has fewer parts to break/lose, looks perfectly fine when rolled forward since it employs velcro and not stiff plastic tabs and secures right to the footman loops when you're running with the panel rolled forward. An all around better design.


Multipanel top = BAD
More complicated, has more parts, takes longer to install/remove, plastic tabs for door surrounds look like dogshit when rolled forward, will leave you wondering where to put the other panel when going topless, has an obnoxious center bar where the two panels meet that adds time to the installation/removal process, needs a stack of washers to align correctly and will make you want to drop kick a kitten.


We on the same page now?

The top has had relatively little use, so it is still clear.

The pages in my book demand reading comprehension.
Say again, over.
