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.
