My rear window zipper is ****ed, and no one want to fix that around town, so I'm down to replacing my entire top.. I don't have a bunch of money to throw on that right now, so the cheaper the better, BUT, I still want something that has a minimum of quality.
If the majority goes towards bestop with a replace-a-top sailcloth, then that's what I'm going to buy. I know I wouldn't be disapointed with this one, but its still a little too much for my current budget.
I have been searching for reviews for a couple brands, like Rugged ridge
Rugged Ridge 13737.01 Sailcloth Soft Top, Black Diamond, 10-15 Jeep 2-Door Wrangler
Rough Country Replacement Soft Top for 10-15 Jeep JK Wrangler (2-door) | Rough Country Suspension Systems®
Replacement Soft Tops - Smittybilt
I want a factory style soft top, no frameless, trektop like tops. From what I have read, some people liked their top and some didn't. As its based on personal experience, I want to ear from guys who had them on their jeep!
My criterias are simple, As quiet as possible, as tight as possible (anything in the acceptable range), and fukin tough zippers!!!
For the moment, I feel like the RR would be the best in the cheapest..
Another option I have is a 2008 factory top, to fit on my 2012. It comes complete with door surrounds, tinted windows, and seems to be in good shape. The only down side is that it is khaki, would look funny on my red jk.. but could have it for 300$.
