Bestop or master top

I have a 2010 2d wrangler and am wanting a new soft top. My Jeep has a factory soft top and has some wear and problems with the rear window zipper. I am looking at a twill top as it will be used year round. My question is this ; is the Bestop $350 better than the master top. I want to go as close to Oem as possible. I donít mind spending the extra money if itís worth it. Thank you in advance

Bestop makes the OEM tops for Jeep. Their replace-a-top skin kits are an exact fit for your existing hardware, so you don't need a complete top.

Can't get any closer to OEM...

Ive always gone with Bestop- as stated, they make the OEM so you know you are getting the right fit/etc. somewhat related, but I just bought a new set of door surrounds for my JKU- I shopped and researched and bought the Bestop kit even though it was a bit more $$. It fit perfectly and installed with absolutely no issues, and mated to my existing top perfectly. Good quality from Bestop.

I have the Mastertop tonneau, windstopper and bikini tops and they are a good, solid set of items. That being said, I have not seen their tops. I got to agree with the others here that Bestop is probably the only way to go if replacing a complete top.

I just installed the Bestop replacement top in the twill. It is heads above the factory Mopar top.

Again, Bestop makes the OEM tops for Jeep and has for 30 years. They ARE the factory tops.
