That's weird... I literally have not had a single problem with my top. If it doesn't look like its going to zip up, I just adjust it around to make the zipper closer, and I never pull the rear straps down super tight. Just tight enough to hold.

Hopefully getting the rampage top today. Amazon has them for cheap, plus we have credit there for selling my books, plus they have free one day shipping. So hopefully.

You get door surrounds and a tailgate bar? You'll need those.

Think he's assuming you didn't. The top really changes the look of the jeep as a whole. You'll love it.

I was just making sure I didn't need some special ones. And yeah I saw a white tj with a black top at Walmart. It looks good.

Might as well update this. The new Rampage top arrived. And my dad said it doesn't look like its the same color as my old one. Which sucks because now my door skins may not match. Which means I'll have to buy need ones. Sigh. I hope it's the same color. If its advertised as "Spice" I think it should look like "Spice." But we will see.

Should be putting the top on either tomorrow or Friday. Then I have about a week off before summer classes start. Gonna work that week and more than likely buy bumpstops with the money.

Looks rad man. Don't see too many rigs with the spice frameless, but I dig it with the green. Now add some aluminum

Thanks guys. There is a slight color difference, but I think it's because mine was faded.
