eBay half top?

I am kinda considering changing my top setup, and I like half tops. Anyone have this eBay top kit or seen it before? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JEEP-...QQcmdZViewItem
Thanks guys

That looks like a link to a Besttop bikini, windjammer, tonneau cover set, not a half-top. The only one of those that seals in a YJ is the tonneau cover over the "bed" of the Jeep. If you see inclement weather on a regular basis, you probably want to look elsewhere for a top. I know that Besttop makes a true half-top for the TJ's, but I don't know about the YJ's.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I'd be careful with that one, looks like it doesn't seal and not a true half top.

@White93ARB:

buy a real halftop like BILLG has it.

often the shops call tha halftops, but that are only a combination of bikini, windjammer and tonneau cover. and that´s not really water-proof.

Here is a link to quadratec to buy a true halftop.

I looked at the one from Quadratec and couldn't justify the price diff.between it and the ebay one.So I ended up with the one from ebay.So far it is doing a good job.I can buy 3-4 of them compared to the Bestop one.Don't get me wrong the Bestop one is probably better made but for the price I went with the ebay top.
