decision on Summer top combo

I'm looking at getting one of these summer top combos. I have a hard top and I'd like to be able to open up the jeep easier in the summer. I don't have the cash for a soft top or even the Trektop.

The Qudratec one is cheaper than the Bestop one. Do you guy think that the Quadratec combo has a lower quality material than the other or it's cheaper just because Qudratec makes it so they can sell it for less? which one would you get?


QuadraTop™ Bimini, Clearview Windstopper & Tonno Cover Combo in Black Diamond for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door - Quadratec


Bestop® Bikini, Duster & Windjammer Summer Combo for 10-13 Jeep® Wrangler JK 2 Door with Factory Soft Top - Quadratec


Thanks for the help

The Bestop looks better judging by only the pictures, but the material looks the same. Again, I'm judging by just the pictures. Its only a $70 difference though. Cut out some 'crap' in your life for a few weeks... Eating out, drinking alcohol, joy riding... And that $70 is made up very quickly.

I actually have the money for either one. If I go with the Qudartec one I can get a couple other small things I want to put on the Jeep but I don't know if the Qudratec one has the same quality that the bestop one.

Here's some pics of besttops. It's for 07-09 and I have a '10 so the top doesn't fit to tight

Question...whats the benefit to getting this set up versus a regular soft top? Why get the jammer, duster and bikini rather than just a softop instead? Not trying to be a smart a$$, genuinely just don't know what the draw is. Is it just looks or is it that much easier to go topless with this set up. Thanks!

Ehh no real benefit, I have the reg soft top too. I've just always wanted one of these tops. It will be easy to take off when I want to go topless. Just a bunch of straps you undo

I want it because:
I like the looks. Kindamakes it look like a truck. With I could get the Brute, but $80k for a vehicle is more than I will spend. My first house cost that much!
I dont really need a rear seat
No matter how much I clean, the plastic windows seem to get dirty and/or scratched making my Jeep look old in comparision to a hardtop/fulldoors of the same year.
Tonneau cover hides view of things in the back and is cheaper/easier to use than say a Tuffy deck even though it lacks the abilty to fully secure items.
