Dual top group

I have a chance to get a 4DR X,S Package, Power group with the Dual Top group.

I thought I read some negative things on this a while back. Is it ok to get , or should I just get the Soft Top?

Thanks,
Bob

I have had no problems with my tops. Not one drip with the hard top, easy to remove front panels. Put on soft top yesterday, fits like a glove. I drove it topless yesterday before putting the soft top on. I will see how it goes with the soft top, I may keep the hard top on for a couple more months out of the year, depending on how much/hard it is to put the soft top all the way down.

It is such an inexpensive option for what you get. We had no leaking problems and all in all, it is quite easy to switch back and forth. The only difficult thing is storing the hard top in the summer. Other than that, give yourself the best of both worlds.

Its by far the best deal out there on the hard top. And what better than one that comes with a warrenty with the rest of the jeep. I love my hard top and my soft top.

thanks

thanks for the quick reply. I was a little nervous about it. Feeling much better now. It's in the 80's now so I don't think the hard top will last too long!!

Sounds like I'm getting a decent deal, I will go over the invoice tomorrow before I sign anything. MSRP >28 , out the door for 25.

Thanks

For areas where you get snow etc I think the dual option would be great. Here is SoCal the soft top works just fine.

Yeah, I would be hard-pressed to buy a Jeep and NOT get the dual tops. I have not had any problem with the hard top per se, but I did have a leaky rear-window wiper hose problem that took a while to get fixed, which was determined to be a manufacturing defect.

I hope to put my soft top on this weekend (:

We've had no problems with our dual tops. In fact, I can't imagine owning a JK without both. My wife drives a TJ and also has both.

I'll also jump in and say that we have had no trouble with either top.

Very glad I got the dual top group with my X.

Just took the hard top off this weekend and put the soft top on - total operation took about an hour. Since then I've put the soft top up and down a few times w/o any problems, and usually in ~5-10 minutes. The only problem I'm having (and it's a minor one) is figuring out how to best store the side and back windows when I've got the top down.

I should add I've had no leaking problems with either top - we've had monsoon like rains recently here in Ohio and I've had no leaking at all with the soft top.

Both my tops are solid with no problems. I would only get a soft top if I was in a year round warm climate. Where you are i would get both. No brainer!
