I believe I have all the hard ware that goes with it also. Even have the quilted winter liner for it. Its very well built even compared to best top I think having seen both. Zippers are top quality and the material is thicker than the best top I have with the new 90.

I live in PA, but would be very interested in your top. Do you have pics? How much do you want for it? Youcan e-mail me at jsklenar@comcast.net

whiteyj Decisions.....decisions.....That flip top is knid of tempting. I have a full length safari rack on top so out of the question for my rig. The Bestop sail cloth top has been one solid top for me.

jsklenar Thanks for all help. I think I am just going to buy a new Bestop. Now super top or flip top?

jgano23 a few years back my husband had the fastback top for his yj. he didn't have any problems with it and it seemed like a solid top, but they do have a bad reputation so i'd be careful. IMO, i'd go with the viking top.

Geoff@Bestop You know, I am kinda partial to Bestop tops

But also check out Pavement Ends. Same engineering, slightly lighter fabric, and cheaper.

You might also be able to get a Bestop Replace-A-top, and reuse the hardware.

But there's a reason quality tops cost some buck - whether they're from us or Viking.

If you just like that extreme fastback style, well, you must have shorter dogs than me.

Cheers!

If you're looking for a frame less soft top look at the Viking Fastback. I've had one for a couple of years now and it has held up fine.

or

Viking Soft Tops, convertible top, fast back, safari top
