hardtop to softtop question?

Ive got an 08jku with the 3piece hardtop and want to change to a softtop. Does the Quadratop replacement top come with any hardware? I like the Bestop NX but at $950 on amazon (black top not kacki) im hoping theres a cheaper option.

I got mine at Bestop factory outlet.


Edit:
Never mind....I was thinking of a Trektop NX. That link has Supertop NX's (with rebates) and other parts as well. So maybe you can find something.

Yeah try Bestop Facoty Outlet Store. I got a Supertop NX for $775 after rebates. That was for a JKU as well.

To answer your Quadratop question, I don't think it comes with hardware. Bestop does make a hardware kit though. If I remember correctly it is around $400.

The Quadratop doesn't come with any hardware, it's just the fabric. There are a number of soft tops out there for you to choose from.

Bestop has 2 different NX style tops. First off is the Supertop NX, which is a factory style soft top. It comes with all the hardware and fabric necessary to install it on your Jeep.

The other NX option is the Trektop NX. It has a unique fast back styling and is loaded with features. You can run it as a full soft top or as a safari bikini top. It also has a Sunrider feature, meaning that you can fold back just the front portion for a quick conversion to open air driving.

We have both tops available to ship out next business day. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to help.

Free shipping on orders over $200. I thought about having a vendor price match my order, but it was such a good deal, I figured it would have been a loss for them. (I caught a super special sale or something).

You may want to check Craigslist first. At least in my area there are frequently individuals posting unused factory soft-tops for less than half than what you'll pay online as they came with a dual-top option that they never plan to use.

To my knowledge the 07-13 Jeeps can all use a soft top from any of those years but you would need matching hardware for the soft-top from the specific year. For instance I got an unused 2010 top for my 2012 and although the door surrounds and rear window changed for the 2011-2013 soft top it works fine on my 2012 because the seller included all the parts.

If someone is selling a top to you there should be the top (wrapped by a protective vinyl sleeve that you discard after installation), and a box with the door surrounds and rear window bow and another box containing the vinyl windows and rear window clips.

The dual top option came with the soft-top connected to the sport bar so you will need to the 4 bolts that attached the bows from the seller's sport bar. If someone is selling a top they may not remember them because they are under the wrap on the angled down tubes of the sport bar.

Hope that helps.
