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.

Windows are available separately. Give me a call at (951) 277-4949.
