Well some of you may know I was one of the first guinea pigs for the Bestop TekTop. I did not like the top at all and sent it back. I didn't like the hardware, or the design of how the rear window used a c-channel fit the window to the top. I could also tell right away that there would be problems with pooling water without buying some extra bows. But I did LOVE the look of it.
Well before the TrekTop had even come to market I was looking at the "Off Road Heros" top and got REAL interested when they came out with the Combo-Top.
But I was scared to order because of all the bad I had read about either with the top or the manufacturer, so I held off.
Not long ago I noticed Phil from Trail Duty was running this top and then learned he sold them. Well, I thought this was my chance to try the top since I could order it from Trail Duty and with Phil's excellent reputation I knew i would be able to return it if it was defective or if I didn't like it.
I have now been running the top for a week and I have this to say...
I LOVE THIS TOP.
Now, I am still waiting for the combo portion to arrive and am just running the full top right now.
The top was easier to install than the TrekTop, the Hardware was better then the TrekTop and it fits WAY better. It rained today and there was only a little bit of pooling over the back seat but not even enough to sag the top in the least. The top is so tight that there is no way for it to sag.
There is no flapping at all, not even at 80mph. The rear window was moving a bit, but no flapping sound at all and I am sure that it is my bug deflector causing the air disturbance.
The only thing the TrekTop and ORH Top has in common is the fact that you have to velcro the rear window to the tailgate. That wasn't a biggie for me but I know it is for some.
This past weekend the South Florida Jeep Club was invited to park its members Jeeps on the grounds at the Homstead Miami Rib Fest and I had the ORH Top on for the show. The top sets off my rigs look perfectly and EVERYONE from Rib Fest attendees to fellow club members just couldn't get over how good the top looked.
I would like to thank Phil from Trail Duty
for carrying the ORH line and being invaluable when it came to making me feel confident that I wouldn't have any problems.
Now I can't wait for the combo section to arrive and run SUT Style!
