Did you have any trouble during the inspection with your tires being past the flares?

A lot of stiching has come undone but the main problem is the piece of **** zipper on the rear window/the corresponding zipper on the back of the top itself won't hold at all, is binding, and now that I've got it rigged on there it won't come undone save ripping the pull off. This is my 2nd bestop that's done this and I will not be purchasing another one.

My bestop had a rear window zipper problem too. Honestly I've been really happy with my rampage frameless.

I've had the opposite experience. My besttop and zippers lasted 5 years without issue...I've already busted 2 zippers on my rampage top since march but they've been great about sending me new ones at no cost.

Hm. I feel like soft tops shouldn't even get reviews because they vary so much.

I'm not going rampage because the reviews have been vastly different.

Time to try a new contender...stay tuned

I like my rampage, though it isn't my year round top.
