Probably quadritech. I believe they make the OEM ones. But I thought they all did honestly, I just ordered a smittybilt for mine, I'll let you know Tuesday when I get it.

OEM sailcloth is the way to go. Much quieter and stronger material than other material.


EDIT: OEM top DOES have the roll up rear window. Sorry if I misinformed anyone. Thanks BM!

When I first bought my jeep last year the soft top was all torn and the supports were all snapped. The first thing I ordered for the jeep was the quadratop premium sailcloth complete and this kit comes with the quadratop cloth and the best top supports and headers it was very expensive but it was COMPLETELY worth every penny because the soft top is super quiet and everything is built with quality parts and it has held up to me betting it up offroad and yet no scratches after a full year and it still seems like its brand new. Every now and again Ill completely wash my soft top with the best top soft top cleaner kit which cleans up the top super well. And it has the 2 zippers in the rear window so that you can roll up the window which I will do when I have my doors off but dont want to take down the soft top...btw all the zippers are heavy duty and have yet to seize up on me

Well I will be darned....

I have always removed the rear window completely not seeing any provision to roll it up...didn't realize the loops are attached to the frame on the inside to hold the rolled up top always wondered what they were for. Learned something new today, even after owning jeeps for 10 years plus

My new top came in today, a Smittybilt complete OEM replacement, and the rear window has two zipper pulls and the straps to hold the rolled rear window.

Some year OEM tops didn't come with the straps. My son's OEM Khaki top didn't come with straps attached so I made some up to sandwich in-between the soft top and the snap on the bar.

1998 White TJ with a whole lotta stuff...

Mine have the loops, but I use 2 Velcro straps around the rear bar so they will hold the window up out of the way. Also to prevent the roll from shaking around and grinding dirt into the plastic.

My Bestop RAT (replace a top) has two zippers. I thought they all had two zippers?

Without two zippers, you wouldn't be able to roll up the window.
