soft top

I have an 01 that needs a new top. I have started looking on line at them and see there are a few to choose from. Do you have any suggestions?

Smittybilt is okay for the price.(eBay approx $250) but their rear window zipper issues for me is a turn off. I sold the original one after Smittybilt sent me another one after I called and complained. Low and behold I can sense that same issue began to surface. What I do now which most don't recommend is unzip the rear window to the corners, keep the tailgate bar intact then roll the window up to go topless.Got some light creases but I'll take that versus a broken zipper pull anyday. Once summer rolls around, the ST comes off and I'm putting the CRES net back on.

I just ordered a sierra offroad soft top. Not too many reviews so it was a gamble, but a cheap gamble. I'll do a write up once its on. I also got a whole new bow frame from bestop, I figured at least that part would be quality.

Just put the bestop trek top nx on yesterday and it looks sweet! The sun rider is bigger and easier to use than OEM. I would definitely recommend. I love that all the zippers are straight (I.e. no curves) BC I feel like the curves on the OEM back window are a pain in the butt and are a weak point. If you get this top definitely find the how to video on YouTube and watch multiple times before attempting the install.
