        My Jeep has hard top from factory , does this top come with all hardware and/or brackets to attach soft top or will that need to be purchased separate

        • This soft top is a replacement material only, and will need a new factory style frame to be purchased as well for installation. Link for an OEM style frame below.

            Pleased TJ Customer

            I was very pleased with the looks, fit, and ease of installation with the Smittybilt replacement top. I had previously put a Best Top replacement on last time but it only lasted a few years before zippers tore out of the top. I am hoping this will hold up better and the price is half what the Best Tops were.

            terrible top

            This top should not have the smittybilt name attached to it. the worst top ever installed. SO Bad i took the top off and got rained on so that i did not have to listen to the top flap

            Hubby did good

            After a long day at work Hubby worked for 5 hrs getting this top on, once the top was on it was very tight and was difficult to latch, but Hubby did it. Kinda discouraged that I had to pay double for the spice top.

            Couldn’t get any better

            I honestly have nothing bad to say about this top. It fits perfect, the tint is great, it is reasonably quite for being a replacement top and the interior is really nice. I really like it

            Not what I had hoped for

            The top was fairly easy to install, but seems a little loose. More road noise (plastic flapping) than I recall from the last soft top I had. It does look good sitting still, but puffs up when traveling at speeds above 40 mph. I guess for the money it is pretty good. I don't intend to use it all the time so I guess for the money it's a fair deal.

            Decent top for the money. If you want a cheap/inexpensive top then this gets the job done. No special flares with this top. The figment of the top itself is somewhat loose. Make a lot more noise than my previous top. Not to big of an issue though. You can clearly feel the difference in material between this top and the factory top, this top has a lot my play in the material, especially when it’s warm out.

            Good top for the cost.

            The material is really thin, but the smooth texture of the material looks pretty sharp. Be careful when installing the back window tail gate rod. I ripped the material installing mine.

            Replacement top

            Fit perfectly, easy to install. Taking the old top off and putting on the new one only took about a couple of hours. Might have been faster if it wasn't 94 degrees outside. Needed lots of beer breaks.

            Get top

            My new top looks great, it was easy to put on, it stays put when the top is up, and it is as easy to put top up as it is to take it down. I ride all summer with no windows and am having no problems with the top staying connected in the back. My old one was a struggle to put up and the back would conme off and flap while I was driving.

            Great top high quality

            I have a 1998 wrangler sport so basically a very early tj when jeep was still trying new things out and i ordered this top and it was maybe an ich wider then my car and a buddy of mine has an 03 tj and we found out that the later tjs are about an inch wider then the earlier ones so this top is for all tjs it would definitely be a tighter width fit on a later tj but it still fits mine great except for the clip above drivers door will get pinched between my door so my door wont shut sometime but you will not encounter that problem with a later tj but nonetheless its a great top look beautiful and keeps out the water and is a tight fit aside from the width
