My 99 jeep had a hardtop only and I bought a complete rampage kit, all the hardware needed. It was a ebay purchase for under 500. The bad parts about a rampage top are the door surrounds are pretty cheesy. The door just presses against the top, no real good seal like with door surrounds. The other thing is with a window open the top bubbles up from the wind pressure. not sure if that is a problem with other brands. But the good thing was I paid about 300 less than a best top replace-a-top.

I think it probably comes down to a money thing...you get what you pay for. I see aot of hardware sales on my local craigslist. If you get the hardware you can get the top alot cheaper, the whole kit gets expensive

if you only have a hard top you will need the frame and crap which can be pricey. Why not go framless? I think they look awesome! 109535 - Rampage Products Frameless Trail Top with Tinted Windows for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

I personally really like the Rampage model for the window storage in the top. Here in FL we get random rain so it's nice to have them with you. When winter gets here this will be my purchase.

Bestop Supertop.this kit came with all the framework i did shop for price.
I Just put mine on this summer annd I love it.

and while your shopping check out Spiderweb. I love mine, i have a five year old daughter so I went with the super trailmesh, full cage, 2 piece top and 2 inserts for the back. I now drop my top still get sun and wind but under the shade I bet its 20 degrees cooler or more under the shade. I was caught in the rain (you will get wet) but because this does not need a header i just popped my top right over it no other changes that was nice. My daughter loves it. And with the heat in Georgia lately I love it too.

All Things Jeep - SpiderWeb Ultramesh ShadeTop for Jeep Wrangler YJs, TJs, LJs, 1995-2006 - Bungee Cord Shade Top - NO Windshield Channel Required!
All Things Jeep - SpiderWeb TrailMesh 2 piece ShadeTop for Jeep Wrangler 2 door TJ 1997-2006, No Windshield Channel Req'd.

I was in the same boat as you. My Jeep only came with HT. If yours didn't come with any of the ST hardware, then the trektop NX is the way to go. There is a review thread going around on it that covers the rear bar issue when in safari, but I'd buy it again in a heartbeat

I did not even know of the sunrider, till I opened the box
I like that idea of the 3 hole bracket,
You can adjust the assembly Back and tighten the fabric. I think it will come in handy a few years away when the top gets a little stretched from age.
