Best top help

I'm going to buy a new best top for a 98 sport
what's the main diffrences between the replace a top and supertop and also the sailcloth top.I have had the replace a top but I busted it and all thezippers are worn.
Is there other tops around the same price that offer the same great value?
Also I have half doors and I want clear windows

Replace-a-top uses your factory hardware. It has all the fabric and windows (side panels).
Sailcloth is a premium Replace-a-top. It has heavier fabric.
Supertop is VERY similar to a factory top, but includes all the necessary hardware.

You can look at the bottom of this page for images to help identify your hardware (factory, Supertop, etc.).

At 11 years old, you might want to think about replacing the hardware. There's a lot of stress on those bows, and they do wear out.

Other options? There are no other tops available anywhere. You must buy Bestop.*

Clear Windows: you have your choice of tinted or clear. Stop by our web site. There's a different part number for each.

*OK, tha'ts not true. There are others. We have a discount brand "Pavement Ends" that I think is worth looking at. Rampage and Rugged Ridge sell tops. There are a few others, but check with your vendor to make sure they can still get them!

Personally I'd get either the Best Top Replace-A-Top or the Best Top Sailcloth top, those are the only two I'd use since I have done a lot or research on tops since I've had this Jeep,and I mean research in real time, not just surfing websites, I have actually spoke to people who I know have replaced their tops, not just on Jeeps either other vehicles too. Everybody both on the computer AND in real life have told me to get one of the two and to stay away from Pavement Ends, and other tops.
I am finally on board with obama's hope and change thing. I now HOPE that when its all over I have at least a little CHANGE left.
