Refering to the pic with the top off, is that gray material a cover for the top or something?

Looks great. I got mine in black too...love it!! Anyway, how long does it take to put down the soft top once it is on? I assume you just don't roll it back...can't be that easy? Is it a 1 or 2 person job?

the gray material is a storage boot that covers the soft top when it's in the down position. if you're a tj owner and bought yours with a dual top, it kind of looks like the "temporary" cover that the soft top came in but much sturdier, made of a nicer fabric and has a clean fit.

dropping the top is a one person job that can be done quickly in about 5 min. or, if you take the time to wrap up the top in the storage boot, maybe closer to 10 min. i will have a complete write-up on this shortly

hmmm, i don't know if they'll let me take the doors off but guess i can always ask. as far as the weight goes, i would bet these are heavier especially if you have power window. there's a lot more door than the tj's have.

Actually, I'm pretty sure I saw a quote from a Jeep engineer a while back that said that the power window hardware is actually lighter than the manual window hardware. But, that said, I would guess that the JK doors with or without power windows would be heavier than the full TJ doors - they just seem to be a bit larger overall.

More plastic though, so they could very well be lighter

Does the rear window have to be taken out to fold the roof into the boot? I know the side ones will have to be taken off.

The manual tells you to completely remove the rear window, and I'm sure that would be best if you're worried about scratching it from folding or rolling it up. But in my box of soft top goods, came 2 loops with snaps on the ends. There was nothing written about them, but just like the TJ, they snap above the window. I rolled my window up and slide the loops over to hold in place, then folded down. I'll suffer the scratching, too lazy to remove the window completely.
