New cheap soft top for Rubicon

Just ordered a Sierra off-road soft top for my '05 Rubicon. It's the trilogy twill material and is there newest material that is supposed to be quieter, thicker (45oz) and has a very nice black backing. We will see? My OEM top is still in great shape but for the 229.00, I will give it a whirl and keep my Mopar top for a spare. Anyone have one? I will let you all know how it checks out after I put her on.

Ive never even heard of it.
Get lots of pics of the install, and take good notes.
We love write ups of new products.
Good luck.

With Bestop quality supposedly dropping since the moved south of the border, the bar is being set lower which opens the market for more budget soft tops becoming viable choices to purchase. Quadratec now has their own as well.

A lot of "made in the USA" products are outsourced to Mexico.

To most people, that would make them NOT "made in the usa".

So? This product was made in the US and then they moved and their product quality has gone down.
Personally I prefer made in Canada but I am biased

Just like when Optima moved their battery manufacturing from Colorado to mexico. The quality went from top of the line, to the bottom and many stores/corporation's will no longer sell them...
