Although I agree with Bestop for quality, I went super cheap with Smittybilt for $240 eBay and quite pleased. Install is quite easy. Just fold your old top down to the tailgate to expose the header screws. The rest of the top are just held by velcro around the frame. Have your new top header section laying in the same position as the old one before you start unscrewing and just transfer the header to the new one. I do recommend laying the new top in the sun for an hour before install to help stretch the material during install.
