Be careful here, unless you are buying an OEM reskin. SuperTops are proprietary meaning once you get one, you have to stick with it. Supertops do not fit or match anything factory. A seriously high quality product tho, probly the best in the business.

I have the "stock" style best top on mine and it's awesome, worth every penny. Make sure you have the correct channels/mounting hardware.

I have a Smittybilt on mine now. seems to fit fine. make sure what ever brand you get, put it on in the afternoon and let the top sit in the sun and warm up. it will stretch better and fit better.

What about Brand new Frameless / Bowless Soft Top for Jeep Wrangler YJ (Fits model years 1992-1995)

Softopper, the Manufacturer of the original retractable pick-up truck topper is in production of these great looking functional versatile Soft Tops for the popular Jeep Wrangler YJ.

Saw this on eBay. Any one know about these. I'd like opinions before I buy.

I want a frameless.

We have a stock style Bestop and it is great. When it wears-out, I'll replace it with the same unit.

This is completely wrong if you have hard doors. I bought that kit from Softtoper and it was totally bolt on. Everything I needed was included. Door frames came in the kit. Been on for a few months and absolutely bullet proof.

I've had my smittybuilt over a year now rain and snow it's still in good shape fits tight though. You definitely want to let it set in the sun before you try to put it on

My Jeep has 2 year old Smittybilt upper doors which are perfect still, so I just ordered a full Smittybilt replacement top to match them. Hope the full top is as high quality as the upper door skins. They are the exact same as the Bestop on my Jeep now, zippers, fabric, everything....can't tell the difference in any of it.
