New TJ Soft Upper Windows/frames

Im selling a brand new set of dark tan windows with frames. These came from the dealership with a new Jeep in 01 or 02. I recently purchased a hardtop locally and these were in the same storage unit, so I bought them as well. They have never been used (still have cardboard over the insert pins). They are in a bestop canvas bag and the windows say bestop, so I assume they are aftermarket (might be oem but no sure). They are 324.99 from quadratec plus shipping. Price $200, don't want to ship so Im willing to meet within reason. I live near Bristol TN/VA, an hour from Boone NC.

Would you reconsider shipping? I'm in western, AR; it's a little too far to drive for this item.

Thanks

Come on buy these...free bestop canvas storage bag with purchase. Would love to trade for some adjustable rear lower arms or adjustable front track bar or spice or black carpet.

I currently have one of each. The Bestop says " Bestop" in the clear vinyl window. The factory window has some numbers and a warning to wipe only with wet cloth, but does not say Chrysler or Mopar that I can see. There is a significant difference. The most obvious should be attachment to the frame. All factory units I've seen are sewn on the frame. After market units are hook & loop (Velcro) seams holding the skin on th frame.

Thanks for the responses. These are most definitely sewn on to frames, but say Bestop, not Mopar.

Some dealers put what they call factory on there vehicles and its not factory its a dealer add on. Like some chevy trucks that are custom built on the lot are added on once they leave the factory and hit the dealer. Some dealer have deals with big name vendors such as the chevy southern comfort package.
Hope that this helped you I would say it is a factory dealer add on. Good luck!

Sounds like the factory replacements made for Chrysler by Bestop. If you look on the Bestop web page they show a "Mopar" OEM top; however, those tops are manufactured by Bestop. The way I found this out is by calling Bestop to check on dark tan door skins. Dark tan skins are not shown on their web site, but are available only in the "Mopar" OEM version, however, there is a 4-5 week wait to get them because they have to be manufactured in that color. It seems there were suppliers (or one supplier) of soft tops during TJ production and now there are authorized suppliers (or one supplier) of "OEM" replacement parts for TJ tops. Apparently, Bestop is that post-production Mopar top supplier.
