You are in SC. Why not go with a safari top, wrap around jammer, and deck cover until you can save enough $ for a trektop or replatop from bestop? Thats how I ride all year round. Winter it makes it better for me at least since the cabin is smaller and when I need to use the heater it is a lot quicker.
I have had the Smitty top and the stitching sucked, the zippers were plastic and flimsy. Not well made at all and the CS was worse.
4.0L, 5spd, 4.25 Zone lift, Currie Anti-rock, Trutrac D30-D35 w/4.56 gears, MCE GEN I Flares, 35 angler MTRs, Engo 10K# winch, rear disc brake conversion.
My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.
