Bestop is the original soft top manufacturer for wranglers. If your in the market for a new one quadratec has a pretty large selection of soft tops.

Since you are going to need frame and fabric, get the Supertop NX which is a factory style frame. It has all the parts you need.

I was curious what your issues are with the Bestop Super Top. I was looking at tops and wondering if there would be an advantage to the Full Super Top frame or get the Replace-a-Top and keep the factory frame. Any comments?
thanks

There is the Supertop (Classic) which is Besto's own franme. Most do not like it and does not work as well as the factory. The Supertop NX is like the factory frame.

FWIW, I recently replaced an OEM soft top on my '02 (original?) with a Bestop Sailcloth R-A-T. The wind noise has been cut down so much that, now, I can actually hear my radio and hold a conversation on the interstate without turning up the volume much or shouting; and I can't hear for Shinola for the ringing in my ears.

This does not directly address the OP's question, sorry for the drift. YMMV, and invariably will...
