I ordered a new top off ebay. ( smittybilt ) for $239 incl. shipping. Me and me wife installed in 2 hours at 50 degrees outside. A real pain getting it to strech but it fits and looks great. I would say it's about as quiet as the bestop we removed. I would recommend it at this point. We'll see how long it lasts.

I've heard the Smittybuilt top is hit or miss. Some have found extra fabric and others have been EXTREMELY happy with it. Seems you're in the latter camp and keep us posted about it holds up!

I have heard the same thing about all smittybuilt things really. Mixed reviews, good luck though great deal if it all works out.

I will keep you posted. My jeep is bright red and had a hammered old spice colored bestop with duct tape patches. I just bought the jeep 3 weeks ago. This new top was a great improvement. it's black with tinted windows. It actually looks like a nice jeep now.
