Yeah, the cost is much higher. Even for a Bestop, it's $2,500. That's what I paid for one on my YJ as well, but that was a different situation. I'll try to ride it out as long as I can, but last night I read somewhere that the latest delay with the hardtop is 16 to 20 weeks. I ordered my JK in February 24, so it isn't terribly long yet, but if I don't get it until 20 weeks from today, that's too long. That's into the 08 model year. The truck I traded in on the Jeep is dying a slow miserable death, but it's my only vehicle and so I still have it until the Jeep gets here. I would hate to have to put it in the shop for a repair because of a total break down while I'm waiting for the Jeep to come in. The longer I have to wait, the higher the likelyhood that that is going to happen. I'm going to try to wait out the factory one, but I would like to get it before Christmas. I was just curious if anyone had purchased a Bestop for the JK yet and what were their impressions of it, besides the increased cost ($600 to $700 for factory option compared to $2,500 aftermarket).

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
