A new YJ Soft Bikini Top???

I have a question, I think someone on this forum mentioned the Bikini Top by California soft tops (http://www.californiatops.com./productframeie.html), it is totally enclosed to protect from the elements, however its $350. I am wondering if anyone has this for there YJ and how the quality of it is. Is it worth it to replace my current Bestop Soft top? It isnt sold in Quadratec so all I have to go by is there site. Any help would be appreciated.

93 YJ w/some mods

If you look in the new JCWhitney catalog, Road Ends (I think) make a new top similar to that top for considerably less money. Check it out, see what you think.

The forum at Jeep's Unlimited had a huge writeup about CaliforniaTops (manufacture'd 3 hours north of where I live) where some people were quite disappointed with the product and the way the owner treated them.

I have heard both good and bad reports, but haven't personally dealt with C-Tops to give an opinion.

Well first, the company I was talking about was Pavement Ends, and second it is actually Rock Crusher that makes the top similar to the one you're talking about. They sell a top/tonneau combo, but for some reason they have the tonneau for CJ's, YJ's, and TJ's, but the top boot only for TJ's. Don't ask me why.
