Soft Top Question

Hey does anyone have the VIKING Offroad Fast Back Soft Top... looks pretty slick, converts from full soft top to bikini top and has storage for the windows. Doesn't need the factory bows to keep taut... I just hate to buy anything without getting reviews.

I just put mine back on yesterday.
Impressions:
1. too expensive ($600 ish??)
2. loud at highway speeds-I've never had a factory soft top, so I can't compare
3. not really easy/quick to put up windows
4. I broke a plastic cam buckle on the back strap, but was able to replace it with something sturdier I had laying around
5.The Bestop windshield header can be a PITA (the "fixed" nuts spin)
6. Going completely topless takes alot of time, much easier to remove/replace a hard top.
7. Looks really cool!
8. Seems completely water tight

It's kinda like a dog that's that not well behaved. Sometimes I'm really pissed at it, but I love it anyways

After reading reviews on the Viking, it seems there are good and bad things about it and also the OEM. I ended up ordering the Viking sailcloth top yesterday, hopefully it will be here next week.
