With age, exposure, and use, hardware/bow assemblies can rust, parts can be dented or damaged in collisions, and hinges can become loose or bind. All these factors can combine to make the top difficult to use and make the hardware/bow assembly a poor candidate for reuse if a new top is to be installed. In the past, you may have had to repair such wear or damage, but now you can just replace your worn out hardware with Bestop's OE Replacement Style Bow/Hardware Kit. This kit meets or exceeds all OEM requirements and can be used as a foundation for installing factory or Bestop Replace-a-Top soft tops.

The hardware in this kit is manufactured from carbon steel and engineered thermoplastic polymer. The carbon steel parts are powdercoated for a great appearance and long term resistance to corrosion and damage. The kit includes the header (windshield channel), top arch, quick release bow knuckles, bow mount adjustment plate, door surrounds, tailgate bar, and retainer clips.

The OE Replacement Style Bow and Hardware Kit comes with everything required for installation, including detailed, illustrated instructions. It's covered by a limited 1-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Bestop® has its origins in Boulder, Colorado in the early 1950s, where founder Thomas Bradley first began manufacturing soft tops for Jeeps during slow periods at his auto upholstery shop. From such humble beginnings Bestop has grown to become the world's largest soft top maker, producing almost 200,000 tops each year, as well as a factory original supplier of soft tops to Chrysler, Suzuki, Isuzu, GM, and Toyota. In fact, Bestop has been the original equipment manufacturer of all Jeep soft tops since 1986. Along with soft tops Bestop is a leading provider of Jeep and truck accessories like bumpers for rock crawling enthusiasts, electrically powered running boards, retractable bed steps, seats, floor liners, and vehicle storage and cargo carrying accessories. Bestop combines the expertise that comes from almost 60 years' experience with cutting edge and innovative design and engineering, and manufacturing that meets or exceeds OEM quality standards, to create the finest Jeep and truck accessories available.

Bestop warrants its product to be free from defects in material and workmanship, for the terms specified below, provided there has been normal use and proper maintenance. This warranty applies to the original purchaser only. All remedies under this warranty are limited to the repair or replacement of any item or items found by the factory to be defective within the time period specified.

If you have a warranty claim, you must retain proof of purchase and submit a copy with any items returned for warranty work. Upon completion of warranty work, if any, Bestop will return the repaired or replaced item or items to you freight prepaid. Damage to Bestop products caused by accidents, fire, vandalism, negligence, misuse, Acts of God or by defective parts not manufactured by the brand, is not covered under this warranty.

The terms of Bestop warranty are as follows: all "Soft goods" manufactured by the company (using primarily vinyls, plastics and/or foam): 90 days from date of purchase.

Any implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose created hereby are limited in duration to the same duration as the express written warranty. The company shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damage, including, without limitation, damages resulting from the use of the product on repainted surfaces (non-factory original paint) and fading and paint coloration differences resulting from the product’s shielding portions of surfaces from exposure to the sun and elements while other adjacent surfaces remain completely exposed.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
