GoldenSahara00 Hell this stuff is too complicated for me. Cut the fabric off then!

tec498 These are aftermarket soft uppers. The problem is that when you buy them you have to buy the sliders with the frame and all, you can't just buy the fabric and windows. All of the locks on the windows no longer work and the fabric is shot so I just want to go with zippered windows now, I just don't want to buy the frames if I don't need to.

I was under the impression that these were aftermarket sliding soft uppers not oem soft uppers.

GoldenSahara00 That's surprising to me. Stupid design IMO if you must cut them. I have no idea I always had had soft upper zipper windows.

He has to cut the fabric off.

I have a Pavement Ends top. I recently stored it after 7 months of use in Florida, but it appears to be of decent quality.

tec498 Yea, I'm thinking I'll go ahead and cut one of the old skins off and if it doesn't work I guess I'll just have to order new frames. Is there any specific frame that may be better than the others?
04-03-2012 09:34 PM
GoldenSahara00 From why I see they should work. Depends on the frame under the skin.

tec498 Here are some interior and exterior pics of the uppers. Also, does anyone know if Smittybilt tops are better than pavement ends?

GoldenSahara00 Pic of the sliders please.

New soft top and upper door frame question

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to replace my soft top with a pavement ends replay top. I know this top isn't as good as a bestop replace a top but I only drive my wrangler 1-2 times a week so do you think it will hold up reasonably well or is the quality really horrendous?

Also, I have bestop soft upper sliders that leak and the fabric is at the end of it's life. I want to replace the sliders with zippered windows but I want to know if I can use the frame from the sliders or if I need to buy new frames.

Thanks for the help
