Seriously? That top is light. Unbalanced?Hard tops are the worst, nobody really wants to hang a fragile fiberglass boat from their ceiling. it’s too heavy, its unbalanced, and we shouldn’t need tools to remove it. The cheap, minimal hardtop soundproofing is for some reason an option. The rear sliding window is still manually operated. The rear window as a whole can’t be folded or removed for carrying extra long items. At the VERY least, Freedom Panels should have been designed for safe, padded on-board storage.
Sarcasm, right? Gotta be. It's funny.
Put the panels in the bag, stash them in the back seat, or in the back of the truck. Easy. Not unlike the T-tops of the Camaro we had. Now those were heavy and if you messed up, you'd break one.
Gotta be a joke as these are hardly fragile.
I can take mine off, and even put it back on, in minutes and I'm old, with a bad back and arthritis.
Seriously, I like the panels because they do work as they do. I'd not want it any other way. Any other sections would add complexity and the possibility of malfunction, leaks, ill-fitment and so on. IMO, this is the best of both worlds.
One healthy person can unbolt the rear section and take it off by themselves in 5 minutes, 10 tops.
I don't want more sections, more seals, more fitment issues, more leaks, more noise that comes from more pieces.
My Chevy had a manual sliding rear window - I guess I fail to see that as a shortcoming of these trucks where they tried to keep the top simple and light. I thought Jeep people liked simplicity?
