Price: $623.00
Pros: Quality
Cons: Can't use back seat without removing the entire top.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As with all of our other purchases of Bestop products we are very happy with the quality. We love the look of a Halftop and this is a perfect top for our Jeep since we don't use the rear seat very much. On those nice days when we do want to ride with "the top down" the fold-back sunroof is awesome and if we do decide to remove the top, deinstallation/installation is done in 5 minutes flat.

Price: $800.00
Pros: nice look improved heat and stereo sound top opens up
Cons: price too high installation was a hassle not good for rain (pools) cant use backseat poorly made (china)
Recommended? No

Comments: i didnt like it at all besides the looks. its starting to feel like a safety hazard driving on I75 with this thing on. installation was such a hassle, i had to drill too much and do my own directions so itll fit. i cant even use it in the rain, cause it collects pools of water real quick which makes the ride even worse (stretching the fabric) and i cant even use the backseat

im sending it back to get my 800 bucks, not worth the hassle.

Comments: holding up so far.

I think they should put a think insulator inside (underside) of the tops to reduce noise and flap. Think of a really thick Truck Windshield Sun Screen (the type you put in cars during the summer to reflect heat). I am going to try that on my safari top and see how it works.

Bestop Halftop 1992-1995 YJ
Price: $390.00
Pros: Seals cockpit better than bikini/duster/jammer combo.
Cons: Relatively Expense
Recommended? Yes

Comments: -I got a good price on this from an ebay store, but the retail price I've seen is $500-$600.
-Installation is a little bit of a pain.
-The installation instructions have a few glitches; the door surround brackets which bolt to the top of the belt rail are pictured backwards; the step which addresses the measurement from the top of the windshield to the top of the tailgate is stupid--you can't change that measurement without screwing up the angle of the windshield and the top of the door.
-Requires supertop rounded corner doors or full hard doors.
-The overall design is very nice. The tonneau portion is very tight and you can tension the center to create an arch which sheds water well.
-The flip top is cool, but I think the design of the door surround seal to accomodate the flip top is sloppy, and could be a lot better.
-The rear window with mesh screen design is nice; keeps leaves and debris from blowing in while parked. The mesh is a little more difficult to see through.
-Overall though, it seals up the cockpit pretty well, better than the bikini/duster/jammer combo, and the flip top gets you quick open air driving.
