Do you love it or wish you had the hard-top?
In the South it’s almost too hot to truly enjoy a convertible and I am worried it will be nosier.
Please help me decide.

I love mine. Paired with hot heads liner and sunscreen, I’ve used it more than any other hard top Jeep I’ve owned in the past. It’s so convenient that even on hot days I find myself using it in mornings and evenings which is great cause when it’s hot, just close with a push of a button!

Does the liner fold up with it when you open the top?

Yes(y). Here is a video by dieseJL showing the process:

I ordered it on my build. It was the only thing my wife insisted on when we ordered.... and the color Firecracker Red, but she is a redhead so that was a given.

My Jeep had it as part of the build. I wouldn't have ordered it myself if doing a custom order but I'm glad I have it and would get it again based on my first 2600mi of ownership. I also did the hot heads liner and it definitely cuts down on some of the noise in the cab. I don't think the one-touch increases wind noise in the cab as most of that comes from the flat windshield and A-Pilars, however I do think the one-touch increases noise from other sources. Noises from passing heavy trucks, or noise from echo when going through underpasses seem to pass through the roof pretty easily.

I absolutely love how easy it is to open it either partially or fully and watching people have to fumble with the hard top t tops looks like a lot of work after I'm doing pressing the single button once. I use it more than I would have thought, especially after the road end and turns to trails.
 
I love my skytop. It's 90% of the Jeep experience with 90% less hassle than removing a hardtop. Bottom line: because it's so easy, you'll end up having the "topless" experience more often. If you live somewhere warm enough to keep the hard top off year round, that would be the exception.
 
I didn't get it since I am in Chicago and was worried about how it would perform in winter. I also want to cut down on interior noise on highway as much as possible. My Jeep is also a family hauler and my wife isn't a huge fan of sunroofs, so I figured it wouldn't get as much use relative to the drawbacks above.

If it were just me, I'd probably get the skytouch though.

We probably will never take the top off. I wish Jeep offered a hard top with a true sunroof option.

You should absolutely get it
 
I didn’t opt for the sky one touch and this 392 XR will be my first ride without the traditional sunroof. All my previous and current vehicles have either regular sunroof or the panoramic version and I use them frequently during non-winter seasons in PA. I always like the natural light via the sunroof and it doesn’t make my window tint look too dark. It feels great with it tilted and the rear windows cracked a bit on highway.

I love the concept of sky one touch but concerned about highway road/wind noise since it’ll be my daily driver. Also I wanted to have more roof strength/rigidity in the event of roll over (hope it will never happen to me and everyone else). Water leaking is another small concern to be honest. And I’ll buy the hothead headliner for the hardtop to have better sound/temp insulation.

So I’ll say it depends if the 392 is your daily driver (with family and kids) and where you live. It’s a cool option.
 
I honestly think that not having the Sky One Touch is a mistake. Mine is my daily driver and I use it all the time. I drive on the highway and the noise is not an issue.
 
Echoing most of the comments here, the One-Touch is perhaps my favorite feature of my XR. I’m in TX and use it daily.

One of the most loved mods is the Sunrider top. Jeep has it as an option these days, but I bought mine from Bestop a few years back. Use it with my hard top and love it!


Also, the 1-touch can be removed if you’re itching to go fully topless. :)

 
I went with the sky top for 2 reasons. One for convenience, but two bc I don't like the rollbars with no pads. After having a TJ for so long with the pads, it just looks weird to me for them to be naked. The sky top leaves the outer frame around the bars so they don't show. I see they do make roll var covers for the JL. Can I put them on with the sky top?

First off, I love the Sky One Touch! My only hesitation getting the Sky One Touch was optionality to remove the entire top. I thought that maybe I was sacrificing this (though I still decided to get it). I have used it at every opportunity as the weather has been particularly nice for this time of year. I would not have done this with the hard top. And I did test drive the V6 Rubicon a couple of years ago both with this Sky One Touch and the hard top. I didn't notice any difference in noise, but this could be different in the 392.

Has anyone removed this on their 392 yet? I was just wondering today if this could be done, and I assumed that it could be with some skill. It doesn't seem terribly difficult from the video although I can see maybe only doing this a couple of times max as I would be concerned with realignment and possible leaks (might be unnecessary concerns).

That said, does anyone know if the regular soft top could be put on here if one were so inclined after removing the Sky One Touch? Now I'm curious.

There is an aftermarket sunroof option for the hard top that I saw recently but don't have a link for it.
