california top

anyone around here have a CALIFORNIA TOPS – Offroad Tops for Jeep Vehicles is it good? I just recently bought a bestop and am not satisfied with the quality. I know they are supposed to be good but i have had it a month and am already having it get worn spots right through the fabric. I do have it under warranty but love the look of that cali top. Viking has no love for YJ and rockgear is MIA

I have one on my JK and I love it and yes the guy has pissed some people off. In every case I have heard about its been poor communication or longer than normal shipping times that the majority have complained about. I can't remember anyone complaining about a top. They make a great top.

It is pricey but I believe it is because the company couldn't make them fast enough which caused the long wait for some people, about three months for some people. I waited till late fall for mine and I got it a little quicker. With the JK a lot of people complain about having a hard time putting the top up or down. It is easy enough for one person to put the California top up or down quickly or configure as a bikini top or just open the top and leave the back on. It is the quietest top I have had on any jeep. I'm not sure what caused the problem with your top. If you are lookin for a stock type top for your YJ its hard to beat the Sailcloth Replace-a-top. Its made sailcloth and its very durable and very quiet. You should check that out too.

Are you allowed to get one if you don't live in California?
