Update: dealer was able to cancel first order with freedom and I got the one touch with the 2nd order - simply easier and no stupid hardtop to deal with - Alreadyhave my LJ hardtop and that's enough.

$84k build will be sweet:)

I ordered mine with the freedom top and now I'm wishing i had gone with the sky one touch

I called my dealer and they said my build is approved, they said we could cancel it and re order with sky one but they can't guarantee it will go thru because they were allowed 5 total and therefor I would lose my $2500 deposit.

So dumb, should have thought this out better. Really disappointed

That is dumb
I really wanted the sky one touch but I couldn’t get past the fact that the back window stays the way it is when the top is down

Thankfully they were able to help and pull some strings and get what I wanted.

So thankfully I cancelled order 1 and now I'm pushed back a couple weeks with order 2 but its ok I'm happier.

Someone needs to make a quick disconnect rear window - can be done just have to unbolt and bolt it - not the easiest but better than dealing with a huge top. So I'm happy now I'll be a SOT owner

Agree completely with the quick disconnect back window. Probably the reason Jeep doesn't have it is because of the potential of back flow of carbon monoxide into the cabin of the vehicle that could be deadly.

And also because having a quick disconnect would make it easier to get the rear window stolen.

I debated this sooooo hard...do I want to hang my roof and rarely ever take it off or have the one touch and use it more, but be limited because the top stays on forever lol...I went one touch but totally get why people didn't at the same time lol

I too battled the decision and much like the reasons you covered, I chose the one touch also for my 392 build. Can’t wait to get it and see how well I enjoy the top compared to standard hard tops I had in the past.
 
I"m assuming the hard top will be much quieter than the one touch?
Any one have experience with both?

Yes, from my experience working at the dealership. The Sky One Touch is by far the easiest to use, but you do get more road noise with the top, especially if you get one with a Hardtop Headliner. It's not a huge difference, but it is a noticeable difference(more so if you planning on adding wheels/lift/etc). I believe the biggest decision would be whether or not you'd like to take the full top off, and/or have an option for a soft top.

One-touch:
  • Not recommended to remove it, because it's very hard to put back on, and may not ever line up right
  • Very easy one touch back and forward
  • Window remains at very back
  • Top comes with you, so if it needs to go back on in a pinch, it can be done

Hard Top:

  • Can easily transition to a soft top
  • Will take more time to remove and put back on
  • Entire top removes for complete open air view
  • In most cases, will have to be left at home
