Default Best replacement soft top?

Soft top is getting pretty ratty and would like to replace it. I have had some friends get some that are more leather type, mine is more of a thick hard canvass type, not sure if it is the original or not. Who sells the best aftermarket replacement tops for the samurai?

Bestop makes great replacement tops.

I've got one on my Sidekick, we use them on our Jeeps at work.

the best replacement for a soft top is a hard top!

I went through the same thing a couple months ago. I ended up going with the Rampage top, black with tinted windows. I really like the top, but I am not totally sold it is the best on the market. If I had it to do all over, I would try the best top if it had the tinted window option.

I bought a Rampage from Amazon last month. I installed it in the cold and I thought I would never get the snaps to snap, or the bow to set. It was so tight I had to use a bottle jack to get the bow to set and I am not weak. The sun has stretched it some but be prepared, mine was very tight. I am scared to take it off before summer.
The construction and materials is better than any of the other two soft tops I have ever examined, one being a 1989 Jeep and the other being the ratty old top it replaced.

I put a Bestop on my '87 last year. Very happy with it. It's holding up to our winters good. Good quality. PK
