Zipper repair or new top?

Bought my 08 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited used this past winter. When I went to take off my back window recently, it was out of line and jacked up on the right corner (on the top side of course - couldn't be on the window side). Had to jimmy rig it to get the back window off. It appears that some of the plastic teeth were bent and a couple had snapped off. Any suggestions on getting it repaired in the mid-tn area or am I better off just investing in a new top. Seems like the second option would be such a waste for just a little plastic zipper when the rest of the top is fine.

Ill be honest with ya. My 97 had the same prob I've looked for repairs but I have not found anything so in my opinion ull be better off buying a new top. So far the cheapest NEW top I've found are from best top but if u want used go with Craigslist
