If you own a Jeep Wrangler with a soft top, chances are you will need a top replacement every 5-7 years. Sooner or later, the OEM soft top will rip, tear, or just fall apart. It's the nature of the beast, especially if the vehicle is kept outside or in a damp climate. When replacing OEM soft tops on your Jeep Wrangler, we recommend Bestop. For more than 60 years, Bestop has been Jeep enthusiast's top choice for CJ and Wrangler replacement and aftermarket tops. If you're looking for a top quality replacement for your worn out OEM top, here are your best options.
Bestop - The Top Choice for Soft Top Replacement
First up is the Trektop. The Trektop is the popular "frameless" top that gives your Jeep a fastback style look. The Trektop also converts to a safari style top, and can store the windows in the top "deck" of the top when not in use. The Hybrid Soft Top Version, called the Trektop Pro is pictured above. This version is made of Twill and has hard windows and supports, like the OEM hard-top, but gives the appearance and function of a traditional soft top. The regular Trektop NX is seen below. The NX top is made of Sailcloth and like a traditional OEM soft top, it has no plastic supports or glass windows. Both tops give your Jeep a unique look, with top-of-the-line Bestop quality! Prices range from $679.99-$1599.99. Standard and Twill Trektops qualify for a mail-in Bestop $50-$100 Rebate through March 31, 2017. See individual product pages for more details.
Twill vs. Sailcloth: A Material Difference
This is a common question we get. What is the difference between Twill and Sailcloth? Twill is a heavier, softer fabric, while Sailcloth is much like a standard OEM soft top. Twill is a close match to the MOPAR Premium soft top, and has a much darker tone than Sailcloth. Sailcloth is a more rigid fabric, and is usually a few shades lighter than Twill. Because of this, Twill will dampen more noise than Sailcloth (weight: heavier fabric vs. lighter fabric.) Sailcloth is the more economical of the two, coming in at a lower cost. But, if it's in your budget, we recommend the Twill. The higher quality and heavier fabric will last longer, and will quiet down your ride a bit as well! See the two color differences below. Trektop Pro Twill is on top, and the standard Trektop made of Sailcloth is shown beneath.
The Bikini top is the perfect choice for summer. Shown below with the duster (rear trunk area cover) and winjammer (clear rear window). These accessories are ideal for the warm months when you may want some protection from rain showers, but don't want to run a complete soft or hard top. Bikini Tops are available for a variety of Wrangler models, and both 2 and 4 door Wrangler JK/U models. Pricing starts at $59.99.
When it comes to completely replacing your worn out OEM soft top, we recommend the Bestop Supertop. If you're on a budget, check out the Replace-A-Top! The Supertop is made to OEM specs, while the Replace-A-Top is made from high quality sailcloth. These tops are available in a variety of colors depending on the model, and with or without tinted windows. Pricing starts at $799.99 for the Supertop and $520.99 for the Replace-A-Top. See the Replace-A-Top shown below.
