There are plenty of options for soft tops that include frame and work with hard doors. Best top even has a 2 piece soft door that comes with their supertop.

At 1200$s its an investment.

Rampage makes this top

which is like the factory hardware accept at the front where it uses Supertop style hardware. I'm 99% sure you could use Supertop upper half and lower soft half doors with this top.

Never used Rampage anything but soft tops fit crazy tight when new. I have bought 2 new bestops over the years and you have to stretch them they can take all day or all weekend to put on.

I installed a supertop last fall and i pulled muscles in my arms i didn't know i had putting it on. I have not taken it off yet but it now fits nice and tight with no sags. I know when i take it off and put it back on this fall it should go on like a glove. It's just the way a new soft top is if they weren't super tight when new by the time they were a year old the roof would be sagging.

Yeah, I run a hard top in the winter and even though it has been on 3 times it’s still a b!tch to get on in the spring.
I wonder how many soft tops these companies get returned a year because they don’t fit.
OP, soft tops are different for full doors and half doors. Just making sure you know that.

Just picked this up - new for cheap.

I have a set of Bestop round upper doors too I'm planning to use along with my full doors and all fabric doors.

I'll post a write up for install. My kids are pretty active in sports all weekend, so finding time is impossible...

Never cared for the supertop design. Went back with factory hardware and replace-a-top. Doors seal better and don't have to be slammed.

Bestop Sunrider.

I love it. I have had a Supertop which is similar in design and I do understand why some don't like how the doors fit but the flip back top is awesome. I have a Rampage frameless on my sons YJ and its OK although he has a roof rack and therefore never takes the top off (which is why we went frameless).

I use a hair dryer to heat the material at the trouble spots and it really becomes more pliable.
