Replacement Soft Top on Ebay??

Need to replace my softop on my 97 TJ. Has anyone purchased one off Ebay? Looking for some feedback on replacement tops.

Since you'd be spending a bit of cash, I would go to a parts place to buy one - in store or online. That way, if there's an issue, you have recourse. With eBay, returning or exchanging is like pulling teeth. Oh, and you won't get your shipping cost reimbursed in any situation. On some smaller or less expensive items, eBay is great.

If you insist on Ebay, make sure to pay with Paypal. They will "try" to help you resolve any issues. And besides (with eBay) if you buy a used top, how scratched will the plastic windows be?

I bought my Bestop from 4Wheel Parts because they (often) have sales or deals.

I got mine on Craigslist. Buy local. Anyway it's too big to ship, plus you want to be able to inspect. Be patient and you'll see some.

If he just needs the replacement fabric (re-use stock bow hardware), then they aren't too bad to ship.
