stuck in a soft top pickle
 
I currently have a pavements end top and am missing the tailgate retaining clips and bow brackets. Also I have a tiny hole right above the driver seat. Also im looking to get the genright rock sliders with the integrated dimple dot step at the same time when I order everything. So I was looking at different options. Want to do this sooner than later.

1. Buy the missing pieces and fix/ patch the tiny hole and use the saved money on the new rock sliders ( total would be around $520)

2. Buy the best stop bikini top, wind jammer, and duster cover which would be less than buying a new top. But would I lose the sound of my stereo a lot? Then on top of that get the new rock sliders ( total would be around $750)

3. Buy a rampage frameless top and the new rock sliders which would cost the most ( total around $890)

Just wondering what you guys think.

Ive read alot of good reviews about the frameless tops. Especially for their 340 dollar pricetag its cheaper to get that than to replace yours. Plus youll get a safari top out of it for the summer with the windows off. When my time comes to get a new top i think im going with a frameless version. What sliders are you looking at?

Was looking to get the genright rock sliders off 4wd hardware

I ended up going with option 3 so I don't lose out on my stereo and like the frame less tops. Also I used a promo code that gave me 15% off item and free shipping and it came out to less than my predicted prices. By using the code I got them for $787

Nice! When my top goes out ill be getting one of these. Was your install like everyone elses? Tight and slightly hard to get on?

XwXCHADWICKYXwX 05-16-2013 08:06 PM

Absolutely. I put it on as the sun was going down so it got cold which didn't help. So just got it on enough to work because it got dark. Then waited until it baked in the sun for a while the next day then stretched it out some more.

Sounds consistent with everyone else haha. It looks really cool though! Ill def be buying one come time for a new top. Which sliders did you go with? And when are you going to install those if you havent already??

Got the genright sliders with the integrated dimple dot step. Not too sure when I'll put those on. Going to 2 different camps for the next 2 weekend's and work full time during the week so not much time right now
