For those with a Sky Slider ...

I'm deliberating whether to get the sky slider as an option. As part of that decision I thought it would be interesting to survey those w/ sliders to simply ask "if you were doing it over, would you still get it?"

Please only vote if you actually own a KK w/ the slider. appreciate it!

Absolutely. After 5 months and over 10K miles, no worries. It's quieter than you would think for a canvas-covered hole in your roof. Open it some of the way. Open it all of the way. Open it forward. Open in backward. Nothing else is as versitile.

However, there is currently no roof rack option for a Sky Slider. I'm willing to work around that.

I have had over 6000 dollars of repairs done to my skyslider covered by the warranty, but driving it in the tucson mountains offroad with the top back deff makes the hassel of getting it fixed worth while. I have not had any problems since. Even when taking it into touchless car wash, no leaks. I dont think there is anything better other than maybe a wrangler.

Only had mine for about 2 weeks, but having had convertibles for 10 years, it is a great thing what Jeep did to the Liberty. It was either the Liberty Limited or the Wrangler Unlimited but I chose the Liberty because of the ease of opening the top. Push a button and topless you go compared to manually taking the top down on the Wrangler or taking off the top if I got the hard top option. My wife would have had difficulties with the Wrangler. Plus the incentives and tons of novelties that came with the Liberty Limited outweighed the cost of the Wrangler Unlimited with basic novelties and no incentives.

You do NOT want to take these through high pressure washes. Go through the ones that use the "rags" going over your vehicle, NOT the high pressure, as this can damage the seal and not be covered under warranty.
