Bestop Jeep Accessories and Soft Tops

Replace-a-Top™ Black Sailcloth Soft Top (79139-01) by Bestop®. Tinted Side and Rear Windows. Does NOT Include any Hardware. 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 this heavy multi-ply Sailcloth fabric with cotton backing. It dramatically reduces outside noise for a quieter ride than a vinyl denim fabric soft top, and enhances insulation for warmth in the winter and a cooler ride in the summer. 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, you can upgrade to this Sailcloth Replace-a-Top. Bestop is the original equipment soft top supplier to Jeep, and the Sailcloth Replace-a-Top is made to the same original factory quality specifications. With a Sailcloth Replace-a-Top, you'll get original factory fit and great looks.

The unique, heavier, Sailcloth fabric makes one of the quietest soft tops on the market. The secret is in the unique multi-ply fabric. Each ply plays a different role, but together they reflect road sounds, absorb wind noise, and prevent buffeting to create a silencing effect that must be experienced to be believed. The heavier, multi-ply fabric also increases insulation, for a cabin that stays warmer in the cold winter months, but also feels cooler in the summer heat.

The top is manufactured using industrial strength thread for solid, durable construction and all seams are sealed so they remain water-tight. The 30-mil DOT (Department of Transportation) approved windows meet U.S. and European regulations, they're heat sealed to prevent leaks, and available with a 31% tint for a custom look. Heavy-duty zippers are used to remain durable even after many removal and installation cycles. If replacement door skins are included, they attach to the factory original door frames with Velcro.

The Bestop Sailcloth 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). The Sailcloth top is backed by a limited 2-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.
