Jeep Wrangler 1997-2003, Replace-a-Top™ Black Twill Soft Top by Bestop®. Tinted Side and Rear Windows. Does not Include Doors. Is your soft top torn, tattered, and faded, with cloudy and opaque windows? If the factory support hardware is still in good shape, upgrade to the finest soft top you can buy for your Jeep, with 30 oz. triple layer Black Twill fabric previously only seen on high-end sports and luxury models like Camaro, BMW, and Rolls Royce. This material is thicker, softer and smoother than ordinary tops, with a more finished interior and 40-mil thick vinyl windows, the thickest on the market, with 31% tint. Bestop is the original soft top supplier to Jeep, so you can be assured that your new top will fit and look perfectly.

No matter how well it's cared for, after many years and miles the average soft top will become weathered, evidenced by cracks, tears, and fading of the fabric, and clouding and yellowing of the windows. If you're feeling drafts and moisture as you drive down the road and you can't see out of the windows very well, it's time to replace your top. If your factory support hardware (bow assembly) is still sound, take the opportunity to upgrade to the finest replacement top you can buy. The Bestop Replace-a-Top Matte Black Twill Fabric-Only Soft Top is made from material heretofore seen only on high-end sports cars like Jaguar and Lamborghini, and high-end luxury cars like Rolls Royce. Bestop is the original equipment soft top supplier to Jeep, and the Black Twill Replace-a-Top is made to the same original factory quality specifications. With a Black Twill Replace-a-Top, you'll get original factory fit and looks that are superior to any other top on the market.

The Black Twill Replace-a-Top brings a level of refinement never before available for a Jeep. The 30 oz. fabric consists of 3 layers, the exterior Black Twill, a center butyl rubber layer, and the interior cloth backing. The Black Twill is soft, smooth and wrinkle-free, and contains no PVCs, while the interior cloth backing features a unique textured finish that will create a more finished cabin. All 3 layers combine to reduce noise for a quieter ride and improve insulation, for a warmer cabin in the winter and cooler driving experience in the summer. The top is constructed using 135-gauge polyester industrial strength thread and the seams are finished for lifelong durability.

The 40-mil DOT (Department of Transportation) windows, the thickest windows on the market, are extended surface heat sealed for strength and protection from climate extremes, and have a 31% tint to help keep the interior cooler in warm weather. Premium quality YKK scoop count zippers are used for easy window removal and installation.

The Bestop Matte Black Twill Replace-a-Top comes with detailed, illustrated instructions to guide you through an easy installation that should only take about 1 1/2 hours, even if you've never installed a soft top before (at temperatures of 72°F or higher, below that temperature the fabric may contract somewhat, making it more difficult to fit to the vehicle). It's covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, the only top you can buy with a warranty this strong.
