    I've heard the same thing. It's a shame, because it looks like they make a decent product.

    The product is excellent, specially compared to all the offerings out there. Great product but the owner, who is an awesome guy (Tim Taylor), had several issues getting the product off the ground and produce enough to meet the demand. He was a one man workshop, and finally was able to expand the business, so I think a lot of people had issues in teh past but he gave everyone a heads up on the long wait (which is definitely worth it if you are not in a hurry). It is easy to jump on the band wagon for people that have no actual experience with the actual product, but the quality of his tops put Besttop and other mass producing company tops to shame.

    The demand on his product is huge and I am glad that he has not sold out his product and design to other companies that would end up making them in low quality in China or elsewhere. I like supporting small businesses with quality products as much as I can, it is something that sadly is going away in this day and age.

    Cool story. I'm sure he told it to you himself. Juxtapose that with the many, many documented complaints where the guy takes the proceeds from the newest customer purchase to buy the materials to start working on existing purchases, and where he did not tell people what was really going on or even get them the tops they had paid for with 9 months or more.

    ORH had the same business model as Benchmark Designs. If you have been around for any amount of time at all, you will understand the point.

    Edit: ...and if memory serves, this guy was a Canadian making the tops in Canada.

    No worries. I am glad that he was able to turn the business around and still being able to produce one of the best tops out there. I never met the guy, but was able to exchange emails and he was a straight shooter throughout the whole process, and the top kicks ass.

    Going back to the topic, I have a top that is almost new for sale for anyone looking for one, no wait or drama needed.

    Thanks!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
