soft tops

im looking for a soft top where the only things i will need to run them is the header, tail gate bar, and door surrounds.

i came across the viking fast back soft top while i was searching:
viking fast back soft top

are there any others like this top?
and does any one run this top?

i have a hard top that i do not plan on getting rid of, the soft top will be a spring/fall and mild summer type top.

There is the Bestop Trektop that is like the Viking top in the since that you don't need anything other than what you listed.

Though the Trektop's side windows aren't removable, as the Viking Top can be converted into a safari top and can carry the windows with you safely.

But the Viking top is more expensive when your coming from a hard top and doesn't come with the tailgate bar, door surrounds, or the header and you would need to buy them separately. For someone who has a soft top all you would need is the header. You could try and find the door surrounds and tailgate bar from a wrecked wrangler near you.

But it sounds like you will be using them for a long time in the warmer months you would probably like the easy ability to remove all the windows quickly.

i run a viking top and i love it. as zybeon said, u can take your windows off and use it as a safari top and then store your windows with you. but you will need to buy your door surrounds, header bar and tailgate bar

if best top would come out with one like the viking, where the windows can just unzip and zip back in i would buy it from them. i like the idea of the viking a lot more because you can literally strip it down and have the safari top.

It's a valid point, and has been passed along.
