nregas1 I have the Bestop Sailcloth RAT. Money well spent IMO. And yes it is much quieter. I switched from my old OEM canvass top (98 vintage) and drove the hwy immediately and could tell a major difference. Nice quality stuff too.

Lev and Odhinn both have the sailcloth if I remember correctly. I don't really notice an improvement.

I would rather have the two seat option instead of the full soft top.

Walkeraviator I am going to save and spring for the Best-Top Sailcloth Replce-a-top with tinted windows. I prefer the OEM hardware over the supertop hardware, and mine is in great shape. The downside is price. The top I am going for is about $700 shipped. BUt I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for".

mud707 I was told once that pavement ends and best top or actually the same company but different manufacturing divisions or something. Pavement end I think is manufactured in Asia somewhere. I know when I ordered my windshield channel for my bikinni top the picture for best tops and pavement ends were identical even had the same jeep pictured, but pavement ends was $15.00 cheaper. When I recieved it I compared it to my brothers best top one and it was identical.

RIPBiker13 You can get them from best-top FOR best-top. They won't fit the OEM top.

Warpman89 I bought a Bestop and it was easy to install and had no trouble with it. You can get replacement tinted window skins through bestop I believe.

RIPBiker13 Where can I get tinted windows for my factory top? and how much?

Levinoss Both are quality tops

Jma20a i got a pavement ends top a few months ago and i had no problems with installation. best top is a little better quality. i got mine for under 300 due to the fact that i have full doors and it was only $10 more for the tinted windows.

soft-top recomendation

Ok so I was going to buy a hard top for the Jeep but some things came up and now Im just going to have to get another soft top. Its been raining quite a bit down here in Texas and my windows wont zip together all the way and the top is starting to leak. Ive looked at pavement end and bestop soft tops. I need to get one soon as soon as I can and I need recomendations on which brand I should go for. Best prices I have found on these tops.

Pavement Ends: 299.95 with upperdoor skins
Bestop: 449.95 with upperdoor skins
