One of the finer things about driving most Jeeps is the ability to drive in sunny weather and drop the top to let in some fresh air and views when you want. The existing top on this 1998 Jeep TJ Wrangler had seen seven long years in the Arizona sun and weather. The cloth was still mostly intact, but some of the seams and other areas were starting to fail.
Bestop offers factory-style replacement tops as well as multiple variations, depending on the Jeep model. There are options whether your Jeep had an original soft top, hardtop, or no top when you purchased it. There are fastback versions for some, and ones that eliminate the top bows so that removing the windows converts it into a bikini-style top.
Along with the various styles, Bestop offers several types of fabric to suit your budget and needs. Higher-cost options use fabric of increasing quality and durability, all the way up to a 30-ounce twill fabric that is thicker with a softer feel. It’s combined with thicker window panels as well. The combination retains more warmth in the cabin in colder months, while not adding to interior heat in hotter months.
