    Hey there,

    We don't do 1-offs, but we have a place that we recommend. If you shoot me a PM i can send you the details.

    Code 1 was done in our Michigan office by two engineers on the weekend, it was a labor of love for them and turned out great, unfortunately the way we do production it doesn't allow us to custom orders like Code 1.

    Hi Cassie @BestopTeam

    We were wondering if the soft tonneau cover can only be opened by lowering the tailgate?

    Thanks for being so responsive!

    Yes, you would need to open the tailgate, there is some tension that holds it in place and makes it difficult, if not impossible to open without opening the tailgate.

    Hope that helps!

    Nope :) We decided to do Core doors for JK first, then JL which also includes Gladiator.

    @BestopTeam Will you make a boot to fit over the open soft top and zip up to keep the top from flapping while driving on long trips? Or short trips for that matter?

    I emailed Suntop to ask if they were developing a soft top for the Gladiator and got this response:

    Hi Rob,

    We’ll surely make a top for the gladiator, but not only. We have already a complete project on the paper.

    Unfortunately in Europe it will be available late 2020 and we’ll wait that date to develope all the parts.

    They appear to be based out of Italy and sold in North America by Extreme Terrain. I don't have any experience with them other than seeing the product online but it does appear similar to the Off Road Heros top, which i currently run on my JKU. http://www.offroadheroes.com/index.html

    For the soft top? You shouldn't need a boot, it will be similar to our other tops :)

    If you guys make a tan top, I'm ordering a white gladiator, if not, I'm ordering a red one.

    I'd prefer white/tan!
