This is my issue. the TJ is a 2000, and i am always careful when going topless, zipping up, and unzipping
But some passengers aren't and when they unzip a window, i can hear (and see) the stitching getting ripped out. So what i've been doing to avoid having to spend money on a new top, is i've double/triple layer some plain old thread with a sewing needle and go to work re-stitching the area needed.
Has anyone else used anyother material besides the regular old thread..like a light fishing line? I would have thought that stitching would have been made from something more durable originally..But it look like nothing more than a thicker thread.
