Your factory soft top can be a hassle to put up and down. Now you can lose that big bulky soft top frame and have a top that goes from full coverage to open air cruising in minutes. The XHD Bowless Soft Top is the most versatile Jeep soft top on the market. When fully installed, it fits snugly over the factory roll bar for an aerodynamic "fastback" look, but retains the factory door surrounds and tailgate bar for an airtight fit. To convert to a summer brief, just unzip the side windows and stow them in the rear window storage fold designed into the top.
But while this top is versatile, the clever engineers at Rugged Ridge designed it to be less complex and easier to install than competitive brands. It fits better, uses fewer straps and no center bow, requiring only 2 Velcro side straps, one center adjusting strap, and 2 rear straps, with all straps inside the top for a cleaner appearance. The rear window either rolls up or can be used as the storage flap for the side windows. No extra pockets or complicated securing devices are required. Side weather protecting foam is attached to the top, where competitive brands have the foam separate from the top, creating a potential missing part.
Like all Rugged Ridge premium soft tops, the bowless top is constructed from premium quality vinyl coated polyester and cotton fabric for long lasting durability. All sewn seams use marine grade thread to make sure it doesn't deteriorate or discolor in the sun, and the stitching is reinforced on the heavy "pull" areas. Each top includes a pair of handy zippered side pockets for map and accessory storage. Notorious leak spots behind the doors have been covered with a special rail flap to keep the weather out.
The Bowless Soft Top comes in your choice of Diamond Black or Spice Denim, and includes detailed installation and operating instructions. It's covered by a 5-year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
