Duct tape that tear and save up a little longer to get a good quality replacement top from Bestop. In my strongest possible opinion, Smittybilt's tops that are 100% imported from China with thin fabrics aren't worth installing.

That's sucks. I havnt had any problems with mine. My zippers work well even cold weather.

Atthehop If the top is still in good shape why don't you have a patch sewn in.

Kykid Sry last response was short. I got mine from eBay as well and I have the tinted windows. Got mine for two hundred with free shipping. Alot of people are gonna hate on the smittybuilt top but they don't own one. I do and have posted several times on this issue. I wasn't sure about it when I clicked buy it now, but have been very pleased and I would recommend it to anyone on a budget. No it's not the highest quality top and there are minor flaws. Mine has never leaked or failed in any way as of yet. The windows are very dark at night and seem pretty sturdy. For me it was easier to put up and down as opposed to the factory top as far as latching goes. I have owned several tops including factory and the smittybuilt top has held it's own since I purchased it. If you need a decent top at a good price then get it. I also recommend the rugged ridge tailgate window bar. It came with a tailgate weather strip and makes a firm seal as well as eliminating rattle that might be caused by the spare tire bouncing up and down. Hope this helps!
