Anyone Have a Sierra Hardtop and 1/2 Doors?

Just wondering if you guys thought this was a good replacement option.

I'm not that keen on the 1/2 door tops, just don't think they look "quite right".

The Sierra model doesn't have the wiper or defroster. I can probably find a factory replacement used, but higher price.

Anyone have these, how do you like them? Pics?

I've had experience with three aftermarket hardtops. None of them fit or sealed like the factory top. The factory top if free from cracks is worth the money.

If you are talking about the half top doors with the sliding window glass, I actually like those - for the topless days, you still have the open feel of the lower half doors, and for the weather days you have a quiet glass window that opens far enough for tolls or fast food. As long as the doors match the top, it looks good.

Interestingly enough, the OEM top at wholesale pricing is almost the same price as the aftermarket ones, plus the wiring stuff.

The doors are pretty high dollar, so might look at options there.

Thanks for the info.

I have a Sierra top and halves. It was brand new when I got the Jeep. It hasn't held up well. The tops gelcoat is crack all over. One of the sliding windows started to separate after a year and had to be glued back together.
