Rampage half top

My OEM soft top was getting pretty thread bare.
Out of the box, parts that were supposed to connect were an inch or so apart but, a hair dryer tricks the fabric into thinking it's still July.
Overall, I'm pleased with the product.

Think I'll wrap the exposed rollbars with black plastic.

Do you need to make use of factory soft top hardware for this? I have the same sport-bars, and a hard top. For the summer I'd like to pickup a soft top so that I don't have to fight with the hard top over and over again, and can stay dry if it rains (It's a little tricky by myself, and my girlfriend is 5-foot-nothing and no help at all).
I'm trying to figure out the cheapest/easiest way to accomplish this.

Yes, the bows, the half door frames and the rail system and the windshield channel.
It uses everything the OEM soft top uses.
A new hardware set is around $250.

Hey bud,This may be a long shot b/c I seen this was posted in May...but is there anyway you can take a pic of the bows from the inside? I'm doing a custom setup and wondering if this top would work for me and my rig. Thanks in advance...

The Rampage half top is just like the OEM soft top from the windshield back to the first bow. (except that the windshield footman loop is used with a strap like a bikini top)

The spreader bars from the first bow to the second bow are not used.
The second bow is slid forward right behind the roll bar, the top rests on the bows and not the roll bar, just like an OEM soft top(see pic at top of thread).
There are straps & buckles to secure the second bow to the roll bar .
Two footman loops are provided to secure the rear window to the floor and straps attach the lower window to the roll bar.

The package is basically three pieces:
A rear deck cover that uses the soft top belt rail system and snaps to rear window.
A plastic rear window that zips onto the half top.
A half top that mimics the OEM soft top using your own soft upper doors with OEM square corners and small usage of the belt rail system just past the doors.

No rain leaks. I had to make bows for the deck cover and roof to keep the water from pooling.

p.s. What is snow?
