Your factory tailgate bar will work from the pavement ends.

Youll need the drilless header bar from Bestop, and door surrounds.

The top is excellent. Large windows, tint, and storage compartment for the sides and rear window when you want to run just bikin top.

Id highly suggest it, it also can be had for under $250 on amazon. Its very tight and doesnt flap in the wind as well.

The Rampage Top may be Completely Falling Apart right outta the Box!

ALOT of us have had Problems with them.

If I had to do it over, I'd just Stick with the OE Soft Top.

Links?

My and others I know that have this top absolutely love them. Great fabric strength and as long as you dont try and install it in the cold and or over tighten things you wont rip the seams and zippers out.

Mine is FAR better then the worn out framed bestop top that was on my Jeep. Once its tore up from trail riding, ill be buying another.

Another Leaky Rampage Top? - JeepForum.com (my problem with it)
Leaking Rampage Frameless Soft Top - JeepForum.com
Rampage Fast Back bowless soft top review (replaced Viking fast back) - JeepForum.com (where most of the problems are Listed)
The Top is also in the "Mods I'll NEVER Do Again" Thread as well.

I can go on Forever with Finding Threads about Problems.

...and when you DO have a Problem, 9 outta 10 Times Rampage will come up with every Excuse they can as to why it Broke or Malfunctioned due to USER Error. They don't Stand Behind their Products.

I got mine from Amazon, had a problem, Contacted Rampage. The Top was Defective OUT OF THE BOX. So that means it left the Factory Defective. Rampage wanted ME to Pay to Send it back to them.

So I Contacted Amazon, told them the Problem. I didn't even Ask for a Replacement. The Reply I got from them was a Prepaid Label to Send it back, and a Tracking Number for a New Top being Shipped to me. Nothing short of Excellent Service from AMAZON.

When Rampage found out I Contacted Amazon, their Attitude Changed REAL Fast towards me, and they pretty much Wrote me off after that, and didn't want anything to do with me anymore. Wouldn't even Respond to my E-mails.

So yea, that Company won't be getting anymore of my Money.

Sorry if I went OT to the OP, but I'm just letting you know what you could Potentially be in for with this Top.

When I buy a top, I plan on it getting torn up.

Just the daily stresses that happen to a soft top can be immense. But a soft top leaking, some threads coming out would hardly be an excuse to call blame on a poor product, which is alot of what im hearing. And also the maunfacturer.defects from the box seems to happen hit and miss which is just about anything made across the pond.

Nonetheless the customer support I am hearing of seem rough, and thats no way to treat a customer. Thats no joke.

I really like my Rampage top so far. I do plan on spraying some waterproof sealer like the stuff used on tents just for extra protection.

You may be interested in the bestop trektop nx a little more expensive, but comes with everything you need ie... Door surrounds, tail gate bar. I've had mine since November and had it on in off almost daily since( live in Texas cold in morning hot in afternoon). Once you learn the right order to install and take off can be done by one person in under 5 minutes.

Mine Flaps as well, on the Support Bars above my Head.

I think if I Wrap some Felt around the Bars, it'll Stop the Noise it makes.
