Viking Soft Top.......... Again
 
I think Iam going to pull the trigger on this, last time I said I was not going to, but some things have changed to my benefit, so I just need to firm up the extra parts that I need.

Bestop Tailgate Bar Kit TJ 97-06
Quadratec PN 11033.301

Bestop Header Windshield Channel
Quadratec PN 11122.02
Bestop PN 51238
I thought I would include the Bestop PN so I could confirm that this is the "no drill" header? And that I could also confirm that this will work with the Viking top? Bestop states something to the fact that some channels will not work with some tops, and I want to make sure that this is the correct channel.

There have been some door surround kits on Ebay, so if the above parts are good to go then I will get them ordered and get a set of surrounds from Ebay.

The Viking top will replace my 2002 Sport factory hard top, so I just want to confirm that I have the correct parts. I see that Viking has updated their site because now there is a $30.00 charge for shipping. I should have bought earlier!

All help will be appreciated. Thanks again, Scooby

how much of a discount can you get just wondering if its better than the discount I can already get and since its just a short drive I'll pick it up
but if you could get a better discount and free shipping I want to know

can you get a discount on other stuff to like front bumpers or air compressors?

if he has the hookup he better let us know! :D ;)

Just an FYI, the discount code is no longer valid. They decided to eliminate the discount but they do have free shipping on everything. Depending on what you buy the free shipping will make up for the amount of discount you were getting. If you'd like to know who it is send me a pm and I'll give you the info.

Still waiting for a review on those tops. Definitely like the way they look and the utility. Just wondering how well they pulled it off.

Ive been running a Viking Top for about a month. It took about an hour to install the first time, very easy, actually, and would have taken less time but I read the instructions as I went along, for a change.

The fit is excellent. It is quiet and there is virtually no flapping. There is a small bit of wind noise above 60MPH but no more than with my previous sailcloth top. It's been in high wind, freezing cold and pouring rain so far and no leaks, drafts or problems.

It's a clever, well thought out quality product.

BTW does anyone know where to find discount codes for quadratec?

Post pics with your new top :)

thats what this other guy says
and I was told that the side windows dont bow out like the factory ones do so you get a tight fit all the time



I just wish I could get it in tan like my factory one is
allthough I was told how to get it that color but its kinda a hasle
