New owner--after market soft tops?

Where is the best place to locate and buy an aftermarket soft top for a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited? Dealer wanted $2,200 installed.

I live in South Carolina---may be a year round soft top. Any idea as to who can install it if I don't want to?

https://www.jkowners.com/forum/modifi...ia-tops-4.html is my choice.
Marcus River City Offroad - The Wheelin Man's Friend is one of the most respected sales guys on jkowners.com

Why do you want aftermarket?

Why don't you want to install it?

Look on Craigslist for a used OEM top; they're the best option unless you want all the convertible bikini stuff that Bestops and ORH tops provide.

Also, the installation is a piece of cake. Literally all the tools you need are in your glove box or affixed to the ends of your arms.

I installed the Bestop Trektop Hybrid Pro a couple weeks ago---and love it. It took 3-4 hours---but is just what I wanted.
