Bestop makes an excellent factory type replacement. When u order from Bestop direct, or Quadratec etc, make sure u r ordering a full kit with hardware: bows, screws, frames, etc...
You may be able to find someone selling one from their Jeep on eBay or something, but you get what u pay for so be careful. It may be weathered and used or not have all of the hardware u need. IMO I'd buy one from Bestop. Good luck!

not a car...
Start here > Jeep replacement soft top application guide - Quadratec
Then you can shop around. I'm planning to pick up the Supertop NX before too long.

Attachment 138423Here is the Besttop Trektop NX, purchased from North Ridge 4x4 for $650.00 with free shipping, three day delivery. Breaks down to a bikini when you remove side windows and back window. Comes with everything you need for install. The install is kind of tuff but the top strectches out after a few days and is easy then. I replaced the Best top tail gate bar with a Mopar bar and it works very easy.

Does the supertop nx come with that crappy tailgate bar or is it OEM style?

I had to keep an eye on amazon, they go in and out of stock a lot. Seems like every other week it was out of stock.

They've been OOS for 2+ weeks now. It's in my cart and I check my cart every day. I'm on the fence with the trektop nx but I keep one in my cart waiting just in case I ever change my mind so I know when they are in or not.
