I like the new top, would look great to match the fenders a little better.

Painted hard top

I had mine painted black with car paint when they did my jeep. We primed it then sanded smooth then painted black. Same with fender flares. Love how it turned out. It's also got a clear coat on it to make it shine. What do y'all think.

Same here. I like the contrasting colors. I have a black Sahara with black hard top and I love the way my spice soft top looks on the jeep better than the black hard top. I'm currently waiting for Spring so I can paint my hard top spice.
