Rampage Bowless Top Spice
 
5 Attachment(s)
Figured I would post this up because I found it very difficult to find any pics of the Rampage or any bowless tops in spice.

Review of the top: I love it. At full highway speeds its much quieter then factory, at 45-50ish with windows down it is a little louder but not loud enough to bother me. I installed on a 80 degree day, and would suggest doing it on a 90 degree day. I ended up losing the sun towards the end when I needed it most. I am going to let it stretch out for the next week or two and then start practicing taking it on and off, so that it will not take me an hour to put it on when its raining/about to rain. Did it myself and when I got to the back window zippers, the last step I could not get it on. Luckily my neighbor came walking by with his dog and he helped me complete the job.

All in all worth the money, very satisfied and I could see how you could easily rip it or break the zippers. But nothing different then doing the factory ones for the first time. If you have to force it too much you are probably doing something wrong and if you break a zipper you were probably too lazy to go back a few steps, remove everything and start over doing it properly (this happened to me once during install and instead of forcing it I started over and had a friend pull the fabric while I zipped).

Oh yea and most importantly on the review, it looks bad ass!!!

Looks good man. I've been looking at the bowless tops too.

It does look good. Do the straps on the outside flap very loud? Been thinking of getting one for mine too. Thanks for the thread!!

No not at all. The only 'loudness' is when windows are open and the top above front seats flaps a little. On my old factory softie I had to turn the air on when windows were up to keep the 'cabin' pressurized so the top wouldn't make a bunch of noise. But with this top no need. I believe it's due to some leaks but the leaks do not allow water in as I have already driven it through a couple big storms and it has sat in a couple storms too with no water leaks. Def happy with it.

Thank you! I would recommend it! But def have someone with you to help pull fabric to completely zip the zippers. And def do it on a warm/sunny day.

Thanks Kevin! You can always do seat covers, paint your dash/doors and then bedline the floor tan! Next I will be painting the dash (following dragonii's directions in his tired of your interior then change it thread), and then will be pulling out the seats and carpet and doing a tan bedliner on the floor.
