I have, I've used a rampage frameless top and I don't like it because opening the rear window isn't very convenient. I like the factory style top because it's pretty easy to unzip the rear window if I need to grab something back there.

Because the hard top is nice to have in the winter and the soft for summer. It's easy to change tops and lost of us do it.

To me it makes perfect sense. I never fit the hard top but keep it if I ever intend to sell it.

nemo963 My jeep came with the hard top, a soft top, and a bikini top. Looks like you have everything listed there as far as I can tell. I ran my bikini and hard top most the summer, I did throw the soft top on a couple times for long road trips (wanted to run topless but liked the idea of being able to pull over and put the top up if it started raining.... luckily it didn't). I suppose if you have the money and its something you want than go for it. I probably would not have put the money out for all three (love the hard and bikini tops) but since it came with all three it's come in handy a couple times.

New to the soft top.

My 97 Tj came with a hard top but I am planning on getting a soft top for it too,

I know Iíll need the top, frame assembly, door surrounds, and a tailgate bar, tailgate bar brackets, and soft top bow brackets(for the roll bar), and screws that hold the bow bracket to the roll bar.

I plan to buy a Quadratop, I already have door surrounds, a tailgate bar, and tailgate bar brackets.

My jeep didnít come with tailgate bar brackets or the soft top bow brackets

driver side bracket # 55175803 passenger side bracket # 55175802 bracket Bolts (4) # 6036311AA bow bracket to roll bar screws (4) # 6503267




Am I missing anything? I donít know if there are any other special brackets that Iíll need to mount the frame & soft top








This is the bracket I'm missing ^
