Smittybilt tops? Good or bad?

I've had the same top on my jeep since I bought it, when I bought it I came with windows that didn't match the top and they didn't zip properly and i used to keep them in but for the past 3 months I haven't had my back 3 windows in at all, rain or shine because its too much of a pain in the ass to deal with. It's starting to flap in the wind from being stretched out. So looking around smittybilt has the cheapest top, are they good quality and have a good life span? Just want some feedback from someone who has experience with them. Or even if you have recommendations for other brands around the $300 range I'd like to hear about it

I put one on my 97 that I was selling because the original gave out. The zippers rattle. The material is thin and was no worse than the factory top for noise. If I was to keep it I would have spent more. You can get them with door uppers for under $250 shipped to you. Would I put one on a Jeep for 24/7 365 day usage.....no. But I am in Wisconsin, and seeing that you are in Florida, were you would have it down WAY more than me, it may be worth it.

Iíve had a Smitty top on my 99 for 2 years now. Full AZ sun 365 days a year. Currently going through its 2nd monsoon season and it seals up good and doesnít let the rain in. As it was said above the material is thinner than say bestop. For the price ya cant beat it. My only complaint is that the zippers arenít as smooth as on my last bestop...they tend to hang up as you zip and unzip the windows (even after running a bar of soap or wax over them they are better but they still hang in spots).
