Help on Soft Top Choices Please

Looking for opinions on tops. Bestop Sailcloth, Bestop Trektop NX or should I just go with a cheap Smittybilt? I am an average height female and my TJ has a 4" lift. I need something that is easy to work with by myself. So many options and this is my first top to buy.

When I replaced my soft top the first time I went cheap...(pavement ends) it lasted 5 summer seasons, 2.5yrs out in the elements before the stitching dry rotted.
I just bought a sailcloth replace a top. The material is twice as thick and doesn't feel like i can just rip right through it.
I'd suggest not going with the cheapest options
