    Buffering was only when freedom panels were removed right? Why would you remove the freedom panels in the winter?

    I read through the JL forum thread on that and it seems like it's an issue that dealers will fix.

    No, the buffeting is happening with the freedom panels on and the windows all closed. I think the explanation is bad seals on the freedom panels themselves.
    Here is a post where someone just added some insulation around the panels to create a better seal:

    @BestopTeam I had a product idea. Someone may have proposed this already but the one thing I don’t like about the Gladiator’s soft top is that it sits up high on the roof. I know the logic of not letting it sit down along the top of the bed but I’d like to see a top that has three stops. One would be the sun rider position. The second would be the back top of the roof. the third would let the top settle fully down to the top of the cargo bed.

    You can’t really do an NX top for this one but that’s a product differentiator to try for IMO.

    What about the tonneau cover over the bed. How weather resistant is it designed to be. And since I ordered the LE I will be in need of a Premium Soft top. How soon do you anticipate that they will come to market?

    What's even better, I'm practically down the street from Bestop. When I get my Gladiator, I'll be happy to test if for them.. ;)

    Hey all,

    Thanks for the top idea Sgt, I will pass it along to our team :)

    No timing on NEW products yet... However some of our JL products will work with the Gladiator, as i mentioned before.

    Keep us updated on the arrival of your Gladiator Sgt, if yours arrives before our we might need to borrow it:CWL: Don't worry, we send it back with a few upgrades when we do ;)

    Still wondering how well the roll up tonneau cover keeps water out of the bed.

    Hey Cassie from Bestop this is your Sunrider, right?
