It looks like the viking fast top with the straps and the shape around the top sides for the rear seats Where the top meets the windows above the rear seats).

Thanks to SuperWade2 For the 1 Year Upgrade!

The black one in the latest pics and my Avatar is the Viking Fastback Sailcloth top that I got from Zach at A to Z Fabrication (who I recommend as a good guy to deal with).

viking fast back soft top

I've had a Bestop Supertop, a Bestop Bikini and an OEM Hardtop sitting on a cart in my back yard. I'm planning on running this top all winter and I'm guessing that I wont' miss my Hard Top at all. I run no top most of the summer/fall, and this one is nice that I can zip out the windows and have the "safari" like top.

Sold my OEM TJ Hardtop today....It had been painted from original Tan/Spice to Black (Krylon Fusion Rattle Can) and had been sitting on a cart, under cover in my back yard for almost a year. Posted on Craigslist. First guy that responded, came to look that night, came back with the TJ and Cash a couple days later (Today). Probably the smoothest Craigslist transaction I've been part of.

Helped him take down the OEM Softop (first time it had been dropped) and install the Hardtop.

Sold with a Bestop HOSS Cart/Cover and Hard Top Hoist in exchange for (9) $100 Bills... Not Bad I think and $$$ to go towards my 35" Goodyear MT/R Kevlars once someone has 5 of them in stock!

$900 for a hardtop, hardtop cart/cover and a garage hoist? You let that guy steal it from you!

I can't find a hardtop alone for less than $950 around me.

But other than that, can't wait to see the 35s

I don't know...I would have rated the condition as "so-so", so yah, I could have started a little higher, but for a 11+ year old top with rattle can paint (which was mediocre at best), and a rear window that maybe wasn't 100% water tight....I felt OK with $900 and at least he didn't try to lowball me (that's what I was asking)

Oh, I can't wait for the 35's either (Damn Goodyear and a nationwide back-order), and I have some $$$ tucked away for the Savvy Rear Bumper, Tub Rails, A new Currie Front Track Bar and I might swap the tail-lights to Savvy too! (nothing really wrong with the ORO's, and I'll probably sell them, I've just decided I like the Savvy better)

Yea, I decided not to pull the trigger on the ORO's in case I decided I wanted the Savvy's...My only issue with the Savvy taillights is they aren't protected and they are expensive.

you should have gotten a diamond plated back thing. It would have looked sick. My neighbor has a 89 jeep and it has the diamond plate. Looks sick

Please elaborate on "aren't protected", and I'm not sure if ORO's have dropped, but last I looked ORO Litedots were about $180 (I think I paid $200 for mine new) and Savvy LED setups were about $200... So +$20 for OEM Shaped Aluminum vs. Round Plastic.

Oh don't get me wrong. I love the look of the Savvy's and the price is perfect in comparison to an ORO litedot.

By not protected I mean if I back up into a rock, that $200 taillight is gonzo. I have backed my crappy taillight guards into a few things hard enough to bend and dent them (and also the tub behind them) but that is the price to pay, atleast it wasn't a wicked $200 tail light. I'd hate to crack and break something like that.
