Soft top replacement

Was curious I need to buy a replacement soft top and was looking at getting a smittybilt because its a little under half the cost of say a best top. I was wondering if anyone has bought one and how they hold up and if it will last more then a few years. Any help is appreciated.

Is it your only top? Is it your DD? Do you park outside? If two out of three are yes then get a little better quality top. It's cheaper for a reason. You should get OEM style and sail cloth for the best overall value. (I know it's money, but if you can wait and save for it you will be happier)

I agree with the above poster. I bought a payment ends replacement top 4-5 years ago. It's only used in the summer, so I've got about 2-2.5 yrs of use out of it and I'm getting ready to replace it this spring because all the stitching is deteriorating.

It is my only top and it is a DD and it does stay outdoors. I appreciate the advise. And I think I'll save up and get a better top.
