    I placed my order for an Alpha roof rack on February 22 - I still do not have it. If you are planning trips around having these racks from UpTop I would not recommend doing so. Right now I am at 10 weeks and counting for just this one piece. I also placed an order on March 26 for a TRUSS bed rack and I don't expect to have this until early to mid-summer maybe early to mid-June perhaps?

    They are working on them I am sure of it, however, the lead times are very, very long. Yet, so are everyone else's lead times so it just seems to come with the territory.

    Apparently there’s a delay in Softoppers shipping too. I got this in an email from them on my order:

    “Please be advised that due to a major metal shortage in the US, this is causing extensive delays in shipping our product.

    Unfortunately, we do not have an anticipated shipping date currently for all Softopper models. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

    If your items are out of stock, you will be emailed within 5 business days the time range of when we expect to have your items back in stock. Your order will then be shipped in the order it was received based on the availability of the clamps necessary to install the Softopper. All orders of accessories and replacement parts will have the normal processing/shipping times of 3-5 business days.”

    Yeah it took me about 3 weeks to get my soft topper. Best package to come home to though.

    I am looking at the truss rack for over a soft top. Since this will be above cab height and stick out past the cab sides, anyone notice any wind noise/whistling from all of the little holes?

    Curious as to why 'Fresh Air' when UpTop positions it as only for Alpha and not required for Bravo? Have Alpha on order as part of my build - endless Covid waiting of course. Just trying to figure out if I even need FreshAir or just eliminate the 3rd bar outright and go. I will only be mounting boxes up there so I probably will be fine just to mount them to the 2nd bar w/o FreshAir, skip/eliminate/span third bar (or gap where 3rd bar would be), attach to 4th or 5th bar for back of boxes. Done.

    But in your Fresh Air install, on what appears to be a Bravo, you are taking out the 2nd bar looks like (not 3rd).

    UpTop Alpha:
    https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0...oma_2G_3G_ALPHA_Instructions.pdf?v=1614011528

    Fist post. Sorry for the 'in the weeds' question - just racking my brain (while endlessly waiting) trying to figure out with very sparse info online. Curious as to why you did what you did and/or if anyone can confirm how FreshAir plays out on Alpha - validate or torpedo my thinking above. Thanks.

    I ordered the Bravo. At the time their website mentioned that if you have a sunroof to note it in the comments. I noted it in the comments. This is what I had delivered. Maybe ask the guys @upTOPoverland about their evolution for this feature and they could tell you "why" it came out this way at that time. It's just an option. If you don't think you need the option, then don't get it?

    Thanks man - make sense. I have seen the lines (Bravo and Alpha) iterate over time via images and its not clear what is V1.0 vs. 1.X or X.X or what model year or whatever.

    I set mine up a tad differently in that photo.
    And I do use the cross beams for central support. I do think it stiffens up the bars a lot. Also if you just remove the 2nd bar the gap
    Is huge so if you load stuff on your roof it’s kinda a pain. I use my rack a lot and I suggest getting the fresh air if you have a sun roof.

    Edit: this is an alpha

    Thank you. By far the clearest pic of FreshAir on Alpha I have seen.

    How are the scene pods supposed to sit on the bravo rack? Is it supposed to be level with the bottom of the rack or level with the hole for the pod? I can barely force them to fit.

    Working on a case to hold the bluetooth relay module for the scene lights.

    It will also act a junction box for the lights. The idea is run 2 wires to the box and then the relay module will control the lights as desired

    Any news on when we can realistically expect the snorkel to go live? I’ve been holding off for a while to get one, but the wait is getting a little tough with the need for one. Any tips are appreciated!

    Ya I second this!

    that in house fab one that you can get from sloop imports is looking real nice these days and the rumor is they will fit with the UpTop alpha

    I am still waiting for confirmation of that

    but I really would rather the UpTop snork if it’s coming

    Also, I created a second wind fairing to help reduce wind noise against my front mounted bins. Worked out well with the Fresh Air option:
