I think the Supertop requires different hardware entirely...whereas the Sailcloth fits over the factory hardware.

I have always thought that the sail cloth was a thicker material, less noise inside the jeep? Hopefully someone has had both and can give better insight.

Do you have a sock top? The supertop is Bestop's own top and will not fit the factory frame. If you have a factory top, you want a Replace A Top fabric. Sailcloth is heavier than the standard replacement fabric and is better and quieter.
