I have a Softopper frameless and love it. Make sure you get the one that uses the factory door surrounds as the one that uses the Softopper surrounds is reportedly not that great.

The only negative I have with my TJKini from SpiderWeb is that at night you can't really see the stars. During the day this past summer, though, I loved it as it kept things cooler, was a good...

It's my daily driver so as much as I love the CJ look, I just couldn't see that being a long term DD. While I almost bought a YJ back in '00, it was only because it was cheaper than TJ's at the time...

It came with the nut inside to screw the pin into, keeping the sway down to almost non-existent.

Personally, I'm just not a fan of any rack that uses the frame to hold it. A 2 hour trip to the...

That's a loaded question - there are several factors that will determine it. What kind of soft top? I know you say new roof skin and rear window but a Rampage skin is going to be valued much less...

Softopper for me. Frameless, easy up/down and can store the top behind the seat so there's some cover to put up in case of a shower.

I tried to avoid replacing the factory unit ('97) by using a variety of the bluetooth adapters - both FM modulating, cassette, aux in (took a bit of rigging for that). Had issues with all of it. My...

Toadyeller, someone already corrected you on the Sport and it's 6 cyl. The plus for the Rubi version is better axles/gear ratio and the lockers - I wish I had gone that route (have a '97 Sport).
