I installed a sky convertible top on my Edition 1. It replaces front sky panels and the I-bar. I drove it 75 mph closed and the wind noise isn’t much different from sky panels. Drove 55 mph with it open and it doesn’t move. There are Velcro safety straps that wrap around the mechanism if you plan to drive 60+ with it open. So far I like it. Operation is so easy compared to sky panels. Struts on the sides will take some getting used to. This is a GMC accessory.

Looks good and better engineered than aftermarket ones I've seen on Jeeps/Broncos. Are you able to open it one handed at a stoplight, or does it take a lot of work to open?

The Bronco
Def nice thanks for sharing, but dont think its 2K nice....
The Bronco-equivalent is $1390 from Ford or $999 direct from Bestop, but sticks up when folded open instead of the z-fold the Hummer top has, so seems logical the Hummer one would be a bit more. Agreed that a $1,500 price point feels more appropriate where you can get a full Jeep or Bronco soft top for $1,449 or $1,849 from Bestop.
