    Ryan: The TruShield Replacement Soft Top with Tinted Windows in Black Diamond is for those of you that have a 1997 to 2006 TJ that are looking for a replacement soft top that is just the soft materials and the windows. There are gonna be a couple different categories of soft top when you're shopping for soft tops, replacement soft tops which we're talking about today, and again, that's your soft top material and your windows. There's also going to be a complete soft top that's going to include all of the frame, all of the hardware. So, if you don't have a frame or if your frame is not in good shape and missing stuff, maybe you wanna look at a complete soft top. But of course, they are gonna be more expensive because they include so much more. And finally, you can look at non-factory style soft tops. Those are going to be your fastback style tops, your hybrid hard top soft tops, a lot of different options there. So, again, this is just a soft material designed to go on a good working order soft top frame that you already have. This is going to be a very simple one out of three wrench install but we'll talk a little bit more about that in just a second. So, when you are looking at these replacements soft tops, you're really going to be looking at the quality of the material and the quality of the construction. And Bestop is going to do a very good job of building a quality soft top that is still going to be a little less expensive than some of the others. Now, you can step up to some really high-quality materials. Materials that are thicker, have additional layers. They're gonna wear better, be a little bit quieter. This is gonna be a little bit more of a basic black diamond material that you would have seen on a TJ as it rolls right off of the assembly line. So, it's not going to have a lot of additional features, a lot of additional frills. It's just going to be a good basic soft top. So, this soft top is going to be that black diamond material. And again, it is designed to be just like a factory soft top and go right on that factory soft top frame. So, it's going to have all of the same look and all of the same features as a factory soft top. This does include some 30-mil thick tinted windows, which is a very nice feature. The factory tops on your TJ probably weren't tinted and it's very difficult to tint the soft plastic. So, getting them tinted out of the box is really nice, keeps it a little bit cooler, and it gives you a little bit more privacy inside the Jeep. But other than that, if you know what a factory soft top looks like, that's what you can expect from this. This is very, very similar to a factory top. No surprises here, it's just an inexpensive soft top that's going to directly replace your existing factory top and do a good job. This top is gonna run you right around $270 and I do think that's gonna be a pretty good price for what you're getting. It is a quality direct factory replacement top. Again, you can spend more for a top that has additional features, is built of a higher quality material, but if you're looking for just a basic replacement soft top, this is gonna do a nice job at a fair price. Now, a member of the install team will show you how you get this installed on your TJ. Man: The only tool required for this installation is a Phillips head screwdriver. However, I used an impact with this Phillips bit. So, to start off, let's get our factory soft top out of here, get our windows out. Now, we're going to release our corners here, flip them up, and you'll see that we have some snaps here. We'll undo those. Our bow just fell backwards, that's fine. Again, we're gonna bring this up, bring both of these up. So, your top should look something just like this. We're not gonna release the center bow yet, we're actually going to release our header panel and do all the screws that secure our top to the front. So, on the top here, there are 10 screws securing our top to the header panel. Let's go ahead and remove all 10. Get that soft top out of there just by pulling back on it a little bit and just freeing it up. There you go.Can put this panel back into place up forward. Now, we can go ahead and remove this center Velcro section and get our old top out of here. So, now we have our new soft top in hand and the new one is gonna go on the same way the old one came off. So, we're gonna attach to the center section right here with this Velcro. Make sure that your front is going to be oriented in the front. Lift up this Velcro, start wrapping it a little bit. You should be able to slide it down and get that final placement. So, this isn't going to be exact here. We're just gonna get it around this bar so you can work on the front. All right. And, we can come back to this in a little bit and make sure that all that Velcro is seated. Right now we don't want it tight so we can move it around. So, let's go ahead and get the front where that needs to be, get the header panel back up. Gonna start tucking our top around our new piece here. Make sure that's folded like that. And there's the corner of our top, just gonna sit right. So, here is the backside of our top. You can see that there are a couple channels here already cut out. And this plastic piece here, that's gonna line up perfectly with these screw holes and then you'll see that the spacing is a little closer here, that is for your center. So, let's get the center. When you're doing soft tops, you always wanna work from the center out. And I did drill some holes in this so I can get my hardware through it. All right. Now, we're just gonna go down the line and get all these screwed in. Now that we have our top attached to our header panel, let's go ahead and secure the side little channels here. Do that on both sides. So, now that we have our header panel and center section hooked up, we're gonna bring up our rear bow. So, we're gonna attach our snaps to the rear bow now. Now, we're going to attach our corners here. I like to just push down on my bow here to help me out. So, let's go ahead and attach our windows. They're in the same spot as our old top. So, just get the zipper started up here in the corner. So, what we're gonna do now is attach our tailgate bar to our back window here. It just slides into this channel just like the old one came off. We're gonna have it in there nice and even. Looks good there. So, now let's install our back window. We've got our new door bar on there as well. And make sure that bar here is in place. That's gonna wrap up my install of this TruShield Replacement Top with Tinted Windows for your Jeep TJ. And for all things Wrangler, keep it here at extremeterrain.com.

        will I need the additional Mopar hardware for replacing factory top?

        • If you are replacing the hardtop with this soft top you will need Omix Hardware - 13308.04 and Mopar Hardware - 5517588AI, 5517589AI, 55176738AA, 55176739AA, 55176736AC. If you are just replacing the windows and fabric on your original soft top you can retain the factory hardware.

        Hello...It says that this top will fit the TJ unlimited...I just want to verify before I purchase because I have a 2004 unlimited which is an extended length, but the photos show the regular length. Will this definitely fit my jeep?

        • This replacement soft top is only designed for use with the standard length wranglers. For an unlimited you would want a top such as this linked to below. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-xhd-soft-top-w-tj-1373135.html

        Can the section of the top above the driver and passenger be flipped back without flipping the whole top down?

        • This will just be replacement fabric, and will retain your OEM frame and hardware. This will not add or remove any features.

            This top was so easy to install, took maybe 10 minutes with the frame off the jeep, once on everything lined up and fell into place, zippers zipped easily and quality is awesome.

            Better than expected

            It took me just 35 minutes to remove old, and completely install the new by myself. Probably helped that I have had the old one on and off so many times. I laid the new one out in the sun here in Florida while I removed the old, and it was like a like a wet washcloth. It was a perfect fit, didn't need to stretch and pull. It did take a little more effort to push in the head bar latches. No need to attach a pic, my Jeep is the same color as above, and looks the same. Not quite as thick as the original, but its half the cost.

            Great Soft Top for my 2006 Wrangler TJ

            It says for it to be at least 72 degrees for easy installation. I agree with that, but it was only in the 50's when my top arrived. I took everything out of the box and allowed it to warm up inside the house for a couple of days until it became flexible. I then took it outside starting with the top and then with the windows one at a time. I do not recommend doing it this way, but it is November and I needed a top for winter. Everything turned out great. The fit was perfect and it looks great on my Jeep.

            Soft top

            This top basically fits, but the side windows hard plastic that fits into the bottom metal channel dose not fit right so it comes lose when driving. Also the top itself is not as tight and flaps while driving, making an already noisy ride almost unbearable. The thickness of the material in both the top and windows seams to be half the thickness of the original top. So overall not happy, should have spent the extra money and bought the original replacement top.

            Great Affordable top

            It is a little thinner than the factory original top. It went on easy, fits and looks great. I really like the tinted window look on this. Gave 4 star on quality due to it being thinner time will tell on how good the quality really is. I put the top on when it was 60 out so had to fight with a bit to stretch it. The directions recommend 73 degrees when replace it. Even with weather an pulling off old top it only took me 1.5 hours to install.
