Looking to add a soft top
Got a 2 door '08 JK with hard top. Looking to get my hands on a soft top but will need hardware too. Anyone have a recommendation on the best aftermarket product? Anything to stay away from?

from what ive seen so far no one is making a complete replacement top for the jk yet, to go from hard top to soft top. the dealer could get evrything for $1700.00 little pricy for my blood .

I just checked on and they have at least two that I saw. Both of them are Bestops, one is called the Trektop that is frameless for less than 600 and then the Supertop comes with all frames and hardware for a little less than 1000. I just put a Supertop on my YJ and love it. Im not too sure how that frameless Trektop would work though. It looks cool, like a Hummer soft top, but it doesnt seem very practical with no frame or hardware. Hope this helps you.

I got mine from the dealer. Had my kid install it, it was a nightmare at first but once he figured it out, it isn't bad. If I had to do it all over again, I think I would have gone with best top.

The instructions that came with my jeep top were minimal at best.

Toadstepper, where are you located?

Since Bestop is the one that makes them for Chrysler, I'd recomend you buy their Supertop. They make the OE stock one, and the aftermarket Supertop one, that is really no different minus a Bestop sticker. You can find new/used ones on craigslist and ebay, but if you don't feel like waiting, buy from Quadratec or They come with all the instructions and a install dvd, hardware, and everything you need...really not too hard to do at all.

we just added a soft top to our 4 door but it came with it- we bought an '07 back in august but we had the dealership put it on b/c I wanted it done correctly and I am single mom. we have not been able to take it down because we got alot of rain today but i am sure it will be down tomorrow- they only charged us an extra $300 for the soft top when we bought the car.
