Soft Top comparison

I have a Bestop OEM replacement top. I need new rear side windows. The kits are $240ish. I'm thinking about replacing it with a new one with a Smittybilt or Quadratec top. I'd have a new top at not much more of a cost of replacing the Bestop windows.

Thoughts on the Smittybilt or Quadratec tops? Or should i just replace the windows because the Bestop is just that much better. (Bestop is in good shape, just a bit faded.)

Thanks,

John

Which top do you have, sailcloth or standatd weight? The Quadratop is the same weight as standard fabric. There are some posts on the Quadatop. Do a search.

I just replaced my original sail cloth top with a new sail cloth top (Bestop).. The original lasted over 8 1/2 years and was still in good shape, in fact, I sold it on eBay for a bit over $175, and the buyer was thrilled with it.. perhaps you would want to stick with known quality..

Looks like its standard weight cloth. Bestop 5118015

I'll search out Quadatop and see what people have to say.

Thanks!
