Which top should I buy?

I am deciding on these two tops. I like the fact that the sailcloth is really quiet, but the twill is supposed to be the strongest Bestop yet. Money is not a factor I this case because if I go with the sailcloth replace a top, I will have to buy hardware and am not worried about a few hundred dollar difference. In your guys opinion, which top do you feel would be better in general, again do no take not take the price into consideration .

these are the tops
Any opinions reviews or experiences will do. Thanks!

They sure make the twill sound good. I would wait for the product to be out for a while. Durability might be an issue.

I know. It's as if I have to buy the twill top, haha. But the sailcloth would be my next choice. The fact that both are a lot quieter is a big plus. I want to wait, but I also need a new top terribly bad. My current top is only going to last me a few more months.

I just got my first Jeep. A 2004 Ruby. It has a Sunrider top. It's gonna need replaced. Are these Bestop soft tops better than the factory Sunrider? An do they come with all new framing? I folded mine down today and it seamed a little difficult.

As long as it's not a replace-a-top, they come with all new framework

The twill sounds very interesting. I'm looking at that as my next top when my current wears out (hopefully many years from now...)

Hahah that's what I'm saying. I find it very inticing. I found it on 4wd.com for just under 1,300. and it qualifies for free shipping.

Looks like a win/win to me. Same type fabric as on the high-dollar cars, made by the same company that makes the original Jeep soft top. Supposed to be more flexible in cold weather (never see any of that here...), etc.

I hope to get many more years out of my current top (Softopper, only a few months old), but that one looks very enticing.

Well I live in Pittsburgh so we can see some decently cold days
