Had I seen this post last week I would say yes very interested.. but when my paycheck cleared on monday I ordered one from softopper. I've had my LJ for 3 years, and have only taken the hard top off a hand full of times. After I heard that there was an option in my price range I jumped at it. The shame of having a hard top on all summer was killing me. Lets see how the quality of my new top is, but hopefully I won't be interested in your top for a while.
sailcloth is a MUST, factory door surrounds would be nice but also remember the factory LJ surrounds have the goofy clip on them so you can use the sunrider feature. this may get in the way of the rampage style frameless top so its not a deal breaker for me. cost is a MAJOR issue for so the 500-ish price is also about my cutoff range. tinted windows are also a major plus but not a must. header pre-attached to the top as a 1 piece unit is a MAJOR MUST. it doesnt need to be a factory clamp style but needs to be permanently attached to the top material. rear side windows and back window needs to be removable as well. another thing I REALLY liked about the original viking top is the window storage "pocket". again like the window surrounds, not a deal breaker but would be nice
And the only thing I would add is, after removing doors and surrounds, could you make the windowless top still work.

Special ordered my Rubicon Unlimited in 2004, when I ordered it you couldn't get the dual top option. This is the only thing I regret not getting. When Thor first mentioned a LJ version I was all over him, I have emails going back to 2006 with him over this top. So yes, I will buy one when you produce it. I will product test one if you wish. But please make the darn thing already!
