Personally I am going bestop free on my Jeeps. All I would tell anyone thinking of buying is to try it all on before you buy if you could. Otherwise its like a gamble. They aparently do not give a crap about the Jeeper. So you have to watch out for yourself. Remember you work hard for your cash and the economy isnt the best. Any business should be kissing your arse for your business and not letting something like this take away revenue. Doesnt make sense to me.

So that was posted 9/22/10 and guess what, 12/Nov/11 I have just received the soundbar cover with the J hook sewn in the wrong way!!

I am in Australia and by looking at the customer service that's provided by Bestop I would guess I have no chance in Hell of ever getting this sorted out!! Don't forget that I had very expensive freight just to get it here, so I am one pissed off customer and guess what I'm a Jeep Parts supplier too and you have just hit rock bottom on my list of products I will be importing and selling in Australia!!

I now wish I read this thread before I purchased this CRAP product.

I really want to get rid of my normal windjammer and get the wraparound/soundbar cap but this keeps me from it.

LMAO....Didn't this start with your last JK?, I looked back through the thread but couldn't tell.

Either way, after this fiasco, they won't get any of my money.....

Your new ride is damned awesome, and your work is first class...
