jeep green, I'm sitting here laughing my rear end off. DA CAPS LOK hahahaha
sandy vajaja lol reminds me of the desert.. Oh **** i have to go i can't take any more , ya defiantly got me laughing my ars off. Carroll out.
just got the cargo top installed and love it, fastback on it's way, packaging was great all parts wrapped in plastic and labeled instructions were clear installation was easy,powder coating was great,box was heavy duty, and the craftsmanship is on point, plus not a lot of people have them here in ft wayne so i like to be different and stand out. Carroll out.
Downside is that this is the busy season for ORH, so if you don't already have your order in, you may wait awhile to get your top.
Best bet would be to call Tim and find out where he is in his production run.
I ordered mine last Sunday - he was currently producing 14 with 10 of them claimed at that point (I became #11). He was hoping () to have this batch done and shipped between the end of this week and next. We will see I don't have a functional top currently, and it's monsooning. I'm tired of carpooling it with the wifey!
He's still plowing through production. He got a little slowed down when he integrated the tailgate bar into the design, but he's catching up more everyday, so my top is finally on his radar again.
Looks like I may be able to anticipate a delivery date sometime around mid-July based on a late June shipping date as long as it doesn't get held up in customs at the border.
Considering I hit Tim up with a warranty claim at his busiest time of the year, I would say he didn't do too bad at all.
So it's been 10 weeks since I first reminded him of my issues, he still didn't jerk me around with a maybe date then fail to deliver on it or anything like that. He was striaght up and told me it would be awhile and I told him that was fine with me since I had come up with a way to keep my butt dry when it rains, so long as more than 5 gallons of rain didn't leak into the Jeep (my fix employed fishing line and a 5 gallon bucket to keep my seat dry)
I'm still in the happy camper camp over here and from the sound of things, I might see my replacement ORH before that thar NX even comes to market... Just sayin...
I'm the exception I guess... Mine came on time but had a few quality issues - bent piece, cheap plastic that cracked after a few months I had to replace, mis-shaped header, etc. My respect for him went when he ignored emails from a then still relatively happy customer. I've never dis-respected him, but if someone asks will tell my story. I expected to get a really high quality top, and that didn't happen.
Comparing Bestop with ORH isn't really fair. Large companies tend to move slower. Still I'd be upset if I had ordered one. When Bestop's NX finally shows up, I'll let a few others get their hands on it first. Hopefully, it'll be a decent top, and if so I'll swap out.

This sounds all too familiar, and I hate to get my hopes up...but he did say before I ordered that he was creating a batch of 14 with 10 already promised...
My e-mail to him:
I ordered a whisper top from you on Sunday, May 29, 2011. I just realized that I never gave you my e-mail address. Please save this address, and I would appreciate any production updates/shipping timelines that you can provide, as you can provide them (I'm currently without a top; carpooling/dealing with weather is getting tough!).
Thank you very much for your time and consideration!

It is complete and boxed up. I have it at my door ready to ship. CANADA POST will be back to work Friday and off strike and I will ship it. It takes 6 days to receive from then. I apologize for that strike. The government legislated a get back to work order which will take place tomorrow or Friday. All is great !
P.S. I redesigned this top so over and over that it is amazing ! ! I will email you some photos in the next few days. I am just boxing up orders for Friday and then I will snap some photos for my web site and email you some. This is one heck of a top.
