Im trying to pick out my next soft top and i was wondering if Rampage made quality soft tops?
If you own a Rampage soft top please leave some feedback on it.
Also the new bowless soft top from Rampage just came out and i was wondering if anyone has purchased one yet? If so how is the quality, construction, and fit?

Thanks for any input!

Yeah I want my next soft top to be bowless, and preferably not Bestop (I hate my bestop supertop). Rampage was one I was looking at so I'm curious what people think about them to.

The bowless is the Viking. Viking sold the rights to Rampage. Correct above, they have not hit the street yet.
I just talked to a lady in customer service at a major retailer and she claimed that they were getting a huge shipment of the bowless rampage tops this past friday (3/12).

Let me know if you end up buying one. I was looking into the Viking top and wanted to make sure this one had the same quality before I bought. Good luck

Rampage soft top

I Purchased a new rampage Black Diamond Soft top for my 99 TJ in December of 09. I didnt want to put it on in the winter but really had no choice.
It just seems to have alot of sagging and doesnt seem as tight as my old one. Rampage keeps telling me that heat will take the wrinkles out.
We have been haveing some pretty warm and sunny days here is the eastern part of Texas and i have intentionly parke it in direct sunlight but it still has the wrinkles. Also where it fits over the header bar it is all wrinkled up.

i cant afford to toss it and get another one but

you would have been much more satisfied with bestop had you spent the money and purchased a quality sailcloth top. as the old saying goes "You get what you pay for"

The retailer i was talking about was 4wd.com and sure enough every time i call them they tell me that "the top will be in by the end of that week or the end of the next week" and "would i like to place my order now?" I tell them ill call back until they are actually in stock. Well after calling for a month getting the same answers over and over I gave up on them... If they cant give me an honest answer i dont want to deal with them.

I thought i got lucky and found one of the few remaining viking soft tops from A to Z fabrication and placed my order online but when i called to see when to expect it they told me that the viking tops are no longer available and since i placed my order ill be receiving the rampage top (and an undisclosed amount of money back which kinda worries me). Anyone have any experience dealing with A to Z? They keep telling me that they will keep me informed on the shipment and arrival/availability of the rampage top but im the one that has to keep calling and checking up on it. I dont want to hound them but i hate having ~$700 in limbo that i paid for a top that i wont be getting since the Rampage replaced the Viking.

A to Z told me earlier this week that the tops should have cleared customs yesterday (3-26). I just dont want this to turn into another 4wd.com run around.

Any reassurance about A to Z would be comforting.

The tops are already available, you can get them from Thor at winchline.com. The price is $425 and they come in black or spice. Mine is on the UPS truck for delivery as we speak :thumbsup:

**Correction** The Black Diamond top is now on backorder. Thor sent out an email last week saying the new rampage top would be limited availability and the next order wouldn't be in for another 2-3 weeks. Guess he wasn't kidding. When I spoke to him the other day he said they were "flying off the shelves"! :eek:

Got mine yesterday, JC whitney has them for $380. I won't be putting it on for another week or so though as I am not quite ready to take the hardtop off.
