What is a good soft top company?

I am thinking about getting a new soft top and I was wondering if there are certain brands I should avoid and others I should buy. Any suggestions?

Bestop is pretty much King of the hill.

I have actually just put a set of new tinted bestop supertop skins on my 91 yj. This is the third supertop I have had, and I can say the skins I just received are much poorer quality and not as good as the old ones. The fabric is alot thinner and seems to be much looser on my yj. My old skins were much tighter the only reason for the replacement is the windows were pretty rough. The old supertop skins lasted years they were on my old jeep for a few years then placed in my garage untill I purchased this yj and were on it for over a year. So I just hope the new skins last as long as the old ones did. I guess every company is making things cheaper to try and make more profit these days. ps. this is my opinion on a recently installed product and good luck THEJAG5 on whatever you decide on. ps I can post a pic if you want

More like trying to keep the same profit margin. No doubt, production costs have gone up a bit and this is one way the can cut the cost to avoid raising prices to the customer.

Best top makes the oem top for jeep. Just found this out recently. The patent is up or something like that. That is why you can now by the factory equivalent (even better IMO) in the SuperTop NX
