fix or throw away?

my soft top has atleast six tears(all on the corners of the plastic securer things) and i was thinking about fixing it.... would it be easier to fix the rips or just get a new/used top for it?

i'd say get replacement fabric for it, but save the current top to reuse somewhere else. i have pieces of my old top that i use to sit on if i leave the top off when it rains. handy material to have around.

You can buy just the top itself and reuse your hardware if it is still good. If you want to replace the hardward as well, it is very easy to do (relative to most projects, it is however still a Jeep... ) You can look at several different places for the tops, I would check 4wheelparts.com, 4wd.com, 4x4rockshop.com (seems to be cheaper on most things), or quadratec.com. Any of these sites will have what you are looking for. Good luck!

I got my replacement fabric from quadratec....which included front half-doors as well for a bit over 400 i think. it is EXTREMELY easy to put the new fabric on the hardware. just remove some screws, pull the old fabric off....replace the front screws and fold the new fabric onto the hardware. took me and my roommate like 15 minutes.

Just watch your local boards or clubs. Someone is always getting rid of something. No reason to pay that much for something brand new unless you really just want a brand spankin new one.
