Lightbulb New top time, comments wanted.

Okay,

So I finally made up my mind and want to buy a new top for my white, 92 Samurai.

After much consideration and thought, I want to go with a white top, just seems every other white Samurai in the country has a black top and I want mine to be a little different.

Now here is my problem, Which manufacturer to go with. I really want tinted windows as well as removable windows (zipper). Is there such a monster being made at this time? Any and all comments and help would be very much appreciated.

Hope you are all having a great weekend,
Dimitri

Thanks for the link. I took a look and they do not offer on their site the sip out windows. I did send an email to Rampage about their tops, but have not yet heard back from them.

The search continues

Hey, did ya make up your mind yet? We had a blast on South Padre Island driving the Sammy all 26 miles to the Port Mansfield cut every day! Used a Breeze-O-Top Safari, and a cheap Jeep cover from Ebay at night to keep off the dew. OEM White top barely held together for tow home Working on using 6mm Socket Head Cap Screw to replace Phillips head that are so freeking hard to hit !

My personal experience... I just bought my first Samurai in Dec 2011, it came with a well broken-in, Bestop Sprint top. I got a bow from a junkyard and a Rampage zip-out window top in March of 2012. I've put it on a couple times & it's a really, really nice top with tinted windows. Any top or lack thereof looks great on the right Samurai. I almost exclusively roll with the Sprint top. The wind sheer & noise, by comparison, are just fantastic on the Sprint top. I don't use a back seat & when I take the 160lb great dane to Starbuck's, I remove the whole top. I can also open the rear window & be back in the car in 30 seconds. I'm a Sprint top kinda guy. Also, I bet the black top will look great on some black wheels. My white Tracker w/ Black top came alive when I put some black 15x8's on it. Just my 2 cents.

Hey guys, Thanks for the comments/replies.

Still looking to see if rampage makes a white with tint... zip out window top. No luck on the email, I will try to call them tomorrow.

Funny story Joe, I have a black sprint top and it just does not do it for me... But everyone likes something different so no worries.

Default Rampage 98635

Black with tinted fixed windows on Amazon for $170, Ebay $140, both free shipping.

Only one comment on Amazon claiming loose fit over bow and "flaps a lot"

Any have experience with this brand/model?

White Sammy with new BFG 32's, black tinted Vent-Visors and 5" tint on top of Windshield

I've had the Bestop Replace-A-Top and currently have the Rampage Black Diamond top with zip-out windows.

The Bestop is a better fitting top.

I really love the Rampage's zip out windows though.

I would prefer a white top as well, but Rampage does not list one with zip-out windows.

My Rampage review is here;
