Cheapest Place That Has A Rampage Inc. Cab Top?

I found this one here:

http://www.tellico4x4.com/product_in...ducts_id/26670

Says its not waterproof but it has to be better then no top at all so who has it the cheapest?

Looks just like the Bestop version which sells for about 3 times as much.

I wonder what parts of it leak?

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

I have this on my jeep and I haven't noticed any leaking. Granted I haven't driven with it in heavy rain yet, but so far it seems fine. The fit and finish is not that great IMO, but overall I'm fairly happy with the product.

yeah it drips very little and not all the time though! it drips were it seals together the top and bottom but that also could be because Iam not putting it together tight enough. overall great product i would buy one again or if i get another jeep.

Is the toneau separate from the rear window? Its hard to tell from the tellico pic. It also needs the main OEM hoop and door surrounds, right? If you have to carry around all that hdw, for only a 2nd hoop extra (folds with the first), you get a full top with a dry interior.

I'd like to see someone make a simple door hoop that clips to the front roll bar strut (like a TJ setup) and not need a main hoop (use the roll bar) for main top support. That would make minimal hdw to pack if you want to have the top handy when mainly topless.

SO it's for sale, or trade for a soft top!!!!

JeeperDon it's a three piece system and it does utilize the existing hdw minus the rear hoop. So you have the top, the rear/window, and the toneau cover.

IMO I would rather just retain the full soft top as it fits my needs better, but if you're looking for this type f top then I think this is a really good alternative.

I'm still looking for nirvana in a cab-top. If I had a wish, it would be for a frame less no hdw setup that would include door panels. I'd like it to hook to the windshield channel, use the roll bars for support, and have built in soft frameless doors (I have a snaps+zipper design in mind), so it does not require you to have doors.

I want something that is compleatly soft only, zero (minimal at best) hdw to take on/off when going from enclosed to fully open. If I had a sewing machine that could handle the fabric and clear panels, I'd make my own.
