Bowless top

Is anybody on here running a bowless/frameless top on their YJ? I'm tired on the heat my black hardtop traps, and need some relief while still having some security. I'm looking into a bowless top because it just seems easier to take down and maintain. Could anybody recommend a brand? I saw some from a company in Colorado that I was planing on buying, but I figured I should see what you guys have to say first. Thanks!

I am. Got one from Rampage. Love it! No problems at all. Easy on, easy off. Window panels store in a zippered compartment inside the top so you always have them with you.

I do not have one yet but have herd a lot of good and a lot of bad, the bad is not going to discourage me because the ease of it all and the storage compartments for the windows sold me in itself. Here in mi you can't running topless all summer so it's 3 days on 2 days off and then top back on for another storm and I love having the top off but on and off all the time gets to be a real PITA

If you got full doors you will need to go with the softopper the rampage top will not working with full doors. I love mine and it comes with all the necessary hardware. The rampage does not it requires some of the factory hardware.

Sorry I thought the second pic was of just the roof on but it's just a bestop safari top. I don't have any of just the roof on and it will be awhile before I can, my windshield frame is off I had to replace the windshield and straighten the frame and do some welding on it.

Ok I got a question! If I go with the rampage which is for the square half doors I have to use my old hardware, no problem there it's all in good shape. If that's the top I need to get how do you still use the same door surround hardware because mine is attached to the center bow with what look like plastic plugs?!? What keeps the door surrounds in place if you remove that center bow? Or am I just all wrong?
