I am looking to replace my leaking soft top. I intend to switch from khaki to black so I need the top and upper half doors.
A few questions:
1. For Joe Average Consumer how hard is it to re-skin your OEM hardware? On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being easy, 10 being difficult).
2. I have considered going with a framelss (Rampage or Trek). Are the issues I've read about with the Trek tops ironed out? Specificaly the rear bow not staying in place, some screw for the sun rider part loosening and being lost and stitches comming loose.
3. Any reported issues with the Rampage tops? I read some reviewers mention zippers or zipper pulls breaking. I saw two versions are made? One called a trail top or something, I need one for a DD.
I've been out of the jeep scene for about 5yrs, are the smittybuilt and pavement ends tops any good? Last I knew those companies didn't have the greatest reputation but times change...
