You'll need door surrounds, a windshield channel bracket, and a tailgate bracket.

From Rampage Products website:
NOTE: Requires Windshield channel, factory soft top door surrounds and tail gate bar. If the soft top is replacing a hard top application, these parts are required and can be purchased separately

I love mine, real tight fit the first time but it looks great and is super tough.

No problem!

Windshield header
http://www.quadratec.com/products/11120_1001_07.htm

Door surrounds
http://www.quadratec.com/products/11132_9530_07.htm

Tailgate bracket
http://www.quadratec.com/products/11033_301_07.htm

Those are exactly what I bought...you may find them cheaper elsewhere, don't remember where I got mine. I'm sure other brands will work but I KNOW those work!

Amazon is cheaper than Quadratec and some stuff even qualifies for prime if you have it.

I'm sure it is...was just giving those as a reference. I wouldn't buy from Quadratec either

Quadratec is great for finding what you want and then shopping around for a cheaper price. They don't even give free shipping.

Exactly. But you can get free shipping if you time it right.

I did buy my QRC bumpers and winch from them(the only place I could get them) and shipping didn't cost me a penny.

To the OP...you're going to want a warm day, at very least one other person but preferably two, and a good hairdryer....it was about 75* when I did mine and it was still less than enjoyable.

Second link for door surrounds says it includes tailgate bar, so no need for buying that separately...

2012 JK sold. Currently 2004 TJ Rubicon.

You can get free shipping from Quadratec when you go through Google...

Use Google shopping to find a product from Quadratec. It will then take you to the Quadratec site. From there, when you add it to your cart you will see that shipping is free.

I have been looking at new frameless tops and I'm torn between the Bestop NX and the Rampage.

I already have a Bestop windshield channel for my Bikini top that looks the same as the Rampage, are they pretty much the same?

Thanks..

IMO the Bestop is the way to go. I know some people in this thread have been happy with their Rampage tops, but Bestop makes a really solid product with a great name behind it. The Bestop Trektop NX also comes with all the hardware necessary to install it.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote!

I'm super happy with my Rampage top...fits awesome, looks great, and it's tough.

All I can say about the Bestop is that I hope it fits better than their soft doors...

Save your money and get a Bestop Trektop NX. I bought the Rampage and it didn't fit right from the start and the zippers broke really easily. The Trektop fit perfectly no stretching needed, all the parts were included and the sun rider feature is amazing during good weather. If I ever buy another top it will be a Bestop.
