Biggdoggy44 Thanks again, appreciate the heads up!

Music_man, on a narrow two lane road, and apparently right front went onto the shoulder and I over-corrected. At least that's what I'm told. I have no recollection of it or the next couple of days. Went over at least twice down an embankment, ended facing the opposite direction from where I had been travelling.

On a positive note, no frame damage, just the tub, hood, fender, glass, and driver's seat.

CoyoteOn2 QUICK NOTE :
For the Rampage, you already have the required Door Surrounds and the Rear Window
Lower Bar, ONLY the Header will need to be obtained.(about 45 bucks)
I think with the Softopper, you are provided with everything needed, (not positive) be
sure you check that out.

I have NO experience with the Soft Topper, so ANY opinion on it would only be conjecture on my part. But have read reviews on the NX that seem to rate it high on a list of considerations.
Your other question regarding the Header → NO ..... It takes the NO DRILL
Just more insight to add to your confusion.............
The only thing I'd like to stress → BE SURE YOU spend the few extra dollars and purchase the Sail Cloth Version, NO MATTER WHICH Top you decide to go with, and NEVER use WINDEX or any AMMONIA products on the Windows.

CoyoteOn2 You will most likely get as many opinions to that question as there are answers to the Shoe Size someone wears......
With that thought in mind, here's my opinion → I run the Rampage Frameless Soft Top, in the Sail Cloth version on my 2000 tj. I've run it now for a little over two years, both with, and without the Windows, as well as completely TopLess. It's had a lot of on and off activity. IT STILL HOLDS SHAPE, AND DOESN'T SAG. In the Winter around here, it has had as much as 8 to 10 inches of Snow resting on it. I'm pleased with the Top, as well as with it's functionality. I have heard others hate the Top, and have also read some nasty reviews on it. But also great reviews as well.
Here's a shot or two taken about a week or two ago with the Top, in both modes.

Choices .... I know can sometimes be OVERWHELMING... ► so have some relax, maybe a Beer or two, and it will all of a sudden come to you as to what you want to do.

Hancock10 I would personally not go with frameless...I think most of them look saggy. Their are a couple I've seen that look good, but for the most part it looks like a blanket thrown over. You can find some cheap frames on eBay. I had to replace mine as well...spent no more than 500 on both frame and top.

Soft top replacement?

Rolled my TJ last year, and just took the top off and discovered some issues...need some advice.

Not only is the frame for the top bent, but the stitching around the frame has ripped through. The issue then is: Do I go with a frameless top or replace the frame and all?

Don't have a hard top, and I live in WA so it has to be watertight. Goes without saying that I'm trying to keep the cost down too, so I can only do this once.

Any advice?
