Pros: Good fit
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After a lot of reading on the forum I knew that the Bestop was the way to go. The installation was easy and straightforward. The fit is good and it looks stock. I also replaced the half door tops. My only recommendation here is to fit the fabris over the half door frames when it is warm out. I did mine in late October. Had to take them in side and heat them with a blowdryer .

Pros: Good top, came installed on Jeep when bought it. Easy to remove, no additional hardware.
Cons: Sags, flaps on the sides, and has been a pain to clean (probably because the last owner never did).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It is obviously old, so I cannot hold any cons against Bestop.

Price: $499.00
Pros: Easy to Install, looks great. Quieter than factory top in my opinion. Rear corner plastic is segmented so you wont have the notorious issue with the corners wanting to pull out near the rear window.
Cons: I'm not a big fan of the 1/2 door skins being held on with Velcro.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I couldn't wait a few more months til it got above 70 degrees outside to do the install. So I decided to let the top get to room temperature inside the house and brought it out when it was time to install it (28 Degrees). The install was flawless.
The windows and fabric don't seem as thick as the factory material. But then again I've never had a jeep with a brand new factory top, so the old OEM material may of only seemed thicker due to old age.
I do have an issue with the 1/2 door on the driverside wherethe seal in the rear upper corner doesn't want to line up with the surround. But it appears to be an easy to fix issue where I can readjust the velcro and/or use heat to mold the seal.

Comments: For the OEM top on my '98, it's in pretty good condition. No rips, tears, cracks, etc. after 10 years of use. The thinner material on these early year tops is a little noisy on the highway, especially if it's a little windy out.

Bestop TJ Replace-A-Top
Price: $436.00
Pros: Factory look at half the price
Cons: Its good, but cant compare to the Factory Top
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I went with the Denim top over the Sailcloth and with Tinted Windows.
DONT TRY TO PUT ON WHEN IT IS UNDER 70 DEGREES. Very hard to do. Its much easier in warmer weather.
The back window zipper doesnt cooperate. It zips more than halfway then gets stuck. Seems like a design flaw in the way they attach the zipper to the window. It looks like it is mis-aligned. Doesn't fold as nicely as OEM.
Overall, the 2nd best option to replace your old top.(1st being factory)
