i love fixes like that

Don't know. I don't shop online. Don't think they would sell a full Bestop sealed halftop for 35-40 bucks.

Oh BOY!!! This was a rough day. I put 2oz. of Lucas fuel injector cleaner in the fuel tank along with 8 gallons of Mid-Grade fuel, and drove it 50 miles, OFF ROAD, up hills, down hills. In other words, I charged my battery. Had a great day. Thanks.

That is for the basic bikini top. Then they remind you you have to get a windshield channel to use it.

Also the photo you see there is a jeep with a bikini/duster cover and wind break.

The Bestop Half-Cab top is a full top that is enclosed. Retails for $650 "ish".
