Smittybilt Hardtop Reviews?

Does anybody have one? Thinking about getting one for my 04 Sport. Next to impossible to find an OEM hard top around here. They are priced very reasonably at $1699 online.

I know a lot of people give them bad reviews but those people seem to review them without owning one. Was hoping to find some people that actually have bought them.

Thanks

I don't have any info on Smittybilt tops, but like most (if not all) of their stuff is imported from China. I'm in So. Cal and OEM hard tops are all over Craigs List out here. Have you tried that?

I troll CL daily, but have a very limited market out here. Jeep may get sent to WA state where there could be more available, but I won't be there to install it.
Would cost a fortune to ship one here from CA, just to turn it around and ship it back to the NW Coast though bolted to a TJ.
