Soft door uppers, all brands the same?

I got a new soft (supertop) top today from a friend... it is spice, my upper doors are gray...

So I need new uppers, and I noticed Mopar/Bestop/Rampage/Smittybuilt all make them.

I think Mopar (expensive) and Smittybuilt (same price as others, but bad reviews ) are out of the running. The Rampage are cheaper than the Bestop. Anyone know how similar they are? Recommendations? Best place to buy? Quadratec looks like it's a good price

I ordered the Rampage ones (they come with the frame), but returned them once I shut the door. The gaskets are thicker and caused them to stick out past the top.
I then purchased the pre-sewn on frame Bestop ones (about $100 more) and they fit perfectly out of the box.

My rampage ones stick out, as mentioned above. this allows them to "seep" moisture inside when it rains: water constantly drips down the inside of the window. Also, this was my second winter with them on, and they started leaking through the fabric seam below the window. Needless to say, they'll be replaced before our next rainy season. I have been thoroughly unimpressed by Rampage's "R-A-T" that came with my Jeep when I bought it (the top & hardware was clearly brand new when I bought the Jeep). Rain & snow goes in through the back at the base of the rear window zippers, the left tension strap tore thru the rivets last summer, and the right is now down to one rivet holding it on. Add in the leaky door uppers, and you have a very nice collander-style top for your Jeep!

" ... Nobody said it was a good plan. It's like somebody went through an actual strategy and replaced every instance of the word 'tactical' with 'balls out.' ... "
