Time for new soft top

My soft top on my JKU is 7 years old and the rear window zipper is jammed upped. So I figure it is time to get a new one. I am looking for a fastback or NX style top. Does anyone have any experience with the Rampage frame less top? It looks sort of like a Bestop NX, but has two straps in the back. What are the straps for? Is the Bestop NX worth the extra $500 difference? Any other brands I should consider?

A pal of mine has one. Durability, well it can't be compared with soft top with frame or with hard top. for $500 I would consider other brands or just get the same soft top what you have right now.

Go with Bestop, while the Rampage is a good top, for the money i would go with a trektop NX, tight fit, and good color. Rampage windows look like crap after about 4 months

I have the ORH Top. It's just over 3 years old and it's started leaking in new areas (it's always leaked in the back, now it's leaking over my head).

I'm going to go with the TrekTop NX Twill. Saw one in person and it was real nice. My roadster has a Twill top and it cleans up nicely! I'll keep the old TrekTop around for bigger planned trips where I expect damage.

I just purchased a Trektop NX for mine and its a nice top for the money. I paid $595 shipped for the black diamond version, and I like it better than the OEM soft top I had.

Install was a breeze.
