I like what you said about it being wear and tear. I've had mine almost a year now, and not a single major issue. Still love the top, but even in the first week or so I noticed little things and as time went on small things happened. Like you said, nothing to make the top have any failure. The top has its uses. I guess it just depends what you want in your top. It's my summer top because of the storage feature and being able to run the bikini top, and paired with Bestop's two piece soft doors that I just slide in my rear area, I can have everything with me for those longer trips and feel at ease for the weather. Going back, I would buy this top again because its what I needed. But if someone is looking for a year round top, the Trektop sounds like it would be better for that. I still couldn't be happier with my top for the nice months during the year.

Hello,

Just installed the top on my 05 Lj and have a few questions. Where do the two metal Rods go?

Also my windows will not seat into the tub rail. It's almost as if the windows are too long. I am aware this is likely caused by installation error but need to know how to fix the issue.

Also where the top seats into the header channel. There is a gap on the very edge on both the driver and passenger side of the vehicle. Enough of a gap to see into the vwhicle. Please see pictures

Any help.

Where the windows go into the tub, push in and up on the very bottom edges with your fingers. It should shove them the rest of the way up into the tub rail. The gap up front is normal, mine has it too. No rain gets in it, and if you have the foam strips installed ( I didn't when I first installed mine because it was so tight, give it time) there will be no wind noise either. If the foam pieces aren't in, I got a lot more turbulence noise. And the metal rods are plastic if they are what I think your talking about, and they go in 4 little triangle pockets above your head, from windshield to middle rollbar, each rod end goes in a pocket. Just bend them abit and slip them in. They don't really do anything but keep water from pooling in the middle of the front section when it pours rain. Hope this helps.

The front just seems a little off. The wind noise is so loud I can't hear when I get to where I'm going. Is it that loud with everyone's top? I read some people say its quieter than te one replaced

So after having the top for a few years now, it's starting to fall apart on me. One of the rear straps has broken, twice, but been repaired. And just recently, the stitching at the bottom of the rear window (where it attaches to the tailgate bar) has completely come undone. Anyone know if you can get replacement windows for the top? Searched google but couldn't find out.

Had the rear strap break apart again today, for the 3rd time. Looking at other options in frameless tops now. I loved this top for the last couple years but it's going fast now..

frameless

I really like this top a lot but since I've had a couple of stitching problems I've been through hell and back. Whrn it happen I emailed back and forth with Jake a few times and he said no problem my warranty will cover that since it wasn't even 2 months old yet. Now for the fun.... a week and a half went by and I havent received anything yet so I called him.. the lady that answered the phone was vary nice and apologies multiple times and foward me to Jake. He also apologies a few times and reassured me it was being sent out that day. Here I am still waiting and it has been over a week. I have had to pull my carpet out of my jeep now because of the rain getting in the hole and this weekend is 85 degrees and I cant take my top down because it wont go back on if I take it off and I cant drive with both windows down because of the wind in the jeep will cause the stitching to tare more and eventually my windows will gall out. I aldo dont have A/C in my jeep. So needless to say my family and nyself are going to hate driving in my jeep.

Does anyone know someone I can contact at rampage that will help me get this problem fixed? Im tired of having to dry water up on my floorboard after it rains. Im just waiting for the rust to start poping up now. Plus thier is nothing like having a brand new top on your jeep.with a big hole in it.

Try calling the reseller and demand either a refund or replacement. If you didn't put something through it and it's just the stitching falling a
apart it's obviously defective.

My experience with soft tops is that they rarely last too long; especially if they are left outside. I like the look of this top and would probably buy one even with the bad press. Furthermore, the guy from rampage seems to be helpful to forum members.
