I voted for the Black Viking soft top. I just bought a well used OEM top in Black and got away from Spice. I like the black look better on my Jeep. I just need to buy a replace-a-top before next winter.

I have a green Sahara and just bought a black soft top and I think it looks much better than the spice.

I just snapped a pic in my garage. I will get better ones if you are interested.

i told you, you damn man. buy a black viking. are you selling the hard top?

why didnt you just lsiten to me to begin with. you know i'm right.

or how about this.

500 bucks and you can have my black OEM soft top with hardware, only 6 months old, and i'll buy a black viking because i'm not too much of a ***** to ***** about it not matching my spice interior.

a spice wiking would look like ****. literally.

Ok..... so I've started shopping for the Black Viking and soft doors. I suppose I should start rattle can-ing my interior now.

Spice. I don't get all the obsession with black, and I think spice look good with green, which is what I have.

If you go with the black top....which does look much better than spice (I switched), you can use black Duplicolor Vinyl Dye to change the exterior color of your spice doors to black. This way the outside (black) matches and so does the inside (spice). A $5 mod that looks fantastic.
