I've seen a couple posts on the material(don't remember if it was here or another forum). I forgot what it is technically called but it is not fiberglass.

We don't make the factory hardtop, but I'm pretty sure meyers is correct.

jasaus, I misread these posts, and thought you had a JK.

In 98, the OEM top might be fiberglass. I would think all aftermarket tops would be.

In any case, I must defer to the wisdom of others. I fixed a fiberglass canoe once, and made a right mess of it.
