I think its actually pretty awesome, i'm sure there are drawbacks as with anything else. Having taken a 4500 mi roadtrip through the western states and National parks last year with my two kids-we were able to fit everything we needed under the tonneau cover, but would have been awesome to go topless through yosemite etc. We ended up taking the front tops off and strapping them in their case on the top of the tonneau.

Just the ability to remove the rear window makes this a buy when it releases for me. Wonder if it actually will come to production.

That would be amazing. If it comes to pass, hopefully it will be compatible with earlier Gladiators.
Maybe if you take a sawzall to your rear panel that has the rear window and roof in one piece vs separate sides and rear as the one in the picture..

If flipping the soft top open is the man bun, is moving all the hard top to the back the mullet?

I'll order as soon as available assuming it's compatible with the existing models. I don't care about putting them in the bed but my garage isn't big enough to store the rear roof section so it'll probably never come off at this rate.

Wasn't that called a Chevy avalanche?
Didn't last to long!
GM is bringing the midgate back. The new Hummer EV and upcoming all electric Silverado RST both have one. Maybe it won't last too long again. 😆

Everyone thank the Ford Bronco for this. LOL.
Bronco owners can thank Jeep owners for this. We've been asking for a modular top since at least 2007 (4-door JKU debut). We can thank Ford for actually building it and forcing Jeep's hand.

I would be more interested in door storage in the bed. I can already put my freedom panels in the bed and I rarely remove the back.

I'll give this a simple "neat".
Personally, I don't feel the need. I hang my doors on my garage wall, but couldn't you just use the plans for one of the 2x4-built door holders and set it inside the bed?

If you never use the truck bed for anything, or don't want to lift just the rear part of the cover to access something in the bed (which you'd never be doing anyway as the top would take up the bulk of the bed)
Cool, but makes it less usable as a real truck.
Speaking generally, if the gladiator is being used as a "truck" the top will be fitted. I canr think of too many times that I'm doing "truck stuff" that I wouldn't have the top on.

It also makes it so you can run a safari style hardtop if the rear quarter panels and rear glass panel can come part. Assuming there are attachment points to secure the top panels only to the roll bars in this situation.

Yes! On hot summer days, I loved driving my JK's with doors off, windows out, but top up for shade when the sun is beating down hard. This would be a great feature for the JT.

You have OEM liner? Debating that or Hotheadz.
Hotheads!. I have the OEM liner on my Rubicon Gladiator and I put a Hotheads on my wife's Overland. The Hotheads with the sound assassin is a better replacement.
