KP Texan My Jeep had a brand new Smittybilt top with tinted windows on it when I purchased it last month. I know Smittybilt has a bad reputation around these parts but, to be honest with you, this top seems to be very well made! The material is thick (I actually compared it to a coworkers factory top), the stitching is well done, and the zippers seem to be very heavy duty. I've already dropped it a few times for the nice weather and it's pretty easy to work with (gets much easier once you learn the tricks). I think Smittybilt may have gone through some changes with their tops recently and this may not be the one they were selling a year or two ago. Had I bought the top myself, I probably would have given into the fear that "everything Smittybilt is crap" and purchased a Bestop, but I really have no complaints with my Smittybilt right now. These are just a few thoughts based on my own experiences!

Oh yea if you haven't had a top with a sun-rider feature before your going to love it, and if you like the bikini top feature, take the windows off and you pretty much have that feature.

Well good luck

tomkaren Supertop NX will be sailcloth. It is NOT out yet. We have it on order and hoping it will be available for shipping soon.

Neil F. The diamond and denim is the pattern and yes, the denim looks a little more gray than the diamond.

Road_House I thought on was just a darker black. But that's just a guess.

lets see the black diamond i believe was what was used in the newer models (03 and newer at least) so you'd want to go with black diamond since you have an '05

Need help picking soft top

Im looking into getting a soft top and need some help picking one out. I thought I was dead set on the rampage frameless top but recently have been considering the bestop sunrider or supertop because they are easier to drop (whereas the rampage frameless top needs to be removed). I really prefer the look of the rampage because of how smooth it looks without the cross support hardware. Money really isnt all that important in my decision, I just want a good product that Ill be happy with. If there is a better option i'm missing or anyone has advice on these tops I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks
