Ah, that makes sense then. Hell a set of superdoors costs more than anything anyone could steal out of my Jeep anyhow. Locking a soft top equipped Jeep to keep people out is futile and will cost you whatever's inside AND the ruined top when they realize the doors are locked and go through the top instead. Locking the doors onto the Jeep to keep the doors from being swiped makes sense though.

I completely agree with you. I did not buy the top to prevent people from taking anything, I bought it more for "out of sight/out of mind." That is also the reason I got a top with tinted windows. It is so easy to get inside that trying to prevent it from occurring would be impossible. I do not want anyone just easily taking my doors though, so I do like the locking feature.

Great looking jeep. Do you have pictures with the top folded down? Can you take it off completely like the older tops? Is their extra door frame hardware that stays on when you remove the top?

Thanks

There is no extra door frame hardware that stays on the jeep. It all comes completely off. I do not have any pictures of the jeep with the top down yet. I will post some when I fold it down for you.

Look on my post yesterday and see some pictures of my cj7 w my super top doors on in a few I believe
