Hope this helps! If you have any questions please let me know.

The above is true for the original factory top. Note 01-02 there was a mix of tops. Some were 4ply (even thicker) sailcloth

If the OP is looking at Bestop Replace A Tops,


Standard Replace A Top with is a thinner material like what was offered 97-02. You can get that in denim or diamond. Denim is listed for 97-02 and diamond is listed 03-06


Sailcloth Replace A Top is heavier than the standard and generally what is recommended. You can get sailcloth in denim or diamond. Denim is listed for 97-02 and diamond is listed 03-06

97-07 and 03-06 will fit any year frame so get which ever you want.
