OE Soft Top vs Rampage Frameless

In Terms of putting it Up & Taking it Down / Folding it, which one is Faster / Easier?

I would Think the Frameless, but I'm not sure.

The frameless (Rampage, Softopper, Trektop) do not come off or are put on easy. They are meant to be a full to with windows or a safari. The OEM is designed to fold down. You would have to bundle up a frameless somehow and suff it some where.

So then the OE Soft Top would Fold Down Easier or Faster than it would take to take Off or Fold Up the Frameless?

It kind of depends...would you run the safari top that the frameless offers or want to remove it completely?

On Days that I'd be going to the Beach (Taking Jeep On the Beach), I'd take the Frameless totally Off.

Other Days when I'm just Riding around, I'd "Fold" the Frameless, so it's just a Roof.

Whereas with the OE Top, I'd be Folded Every Day.

At the End of the Day, the Tops would be put back "Up" to Enclose the Interior.

The OE would definitely be nicer on the beach days. It is not a quick task to remove the frameless and then put it back on, but if you never intended on removing the safari top, the frameless would be faster. With an OE top you will have to take out the windows before you put it down. With the rampage using a safari, you only have to remove windows and you are done.

So I guess if what I am saying is, if you are looking to have an open top, go OE and if you dont want to have an open top often, then go rampage.

Also, why would you put the top and windows on at the end of every day?

So it basically Sounds like a 50/50 Mix for Both Tops. Each One has it's Pro's & Con's.

Jeep stays Outside. No Room In the Garage. That space is Taken Up with the Quads, Lawn Tractor, and Boat.

Yes both tops will have their ups and downs. It just depends on which perks you like better and that will better suit you.
