Default Soft Top Opinions

Okay, I'm torn between which color soft top I want to get. I'm going to get a Pavement Ends replay with tinted windows but I'm not sure which would look better on my Jeep. Tan or Black? Here's a pic of my Jeep with the hardtop.



The primer parts are gonna be with black Herc.

Yeah, get a bestop. They are the ones that make the OEM tops for Jeep. They are way better than the pavement ends one.

Definately go with the bestop, the sailcloth are really nice for the reduced wind noise.

I really like my Besttop Supertop. Especially if you can get a good deal on one. People who complain about them leaking didn't set theirs up right. Mine has been really tight for around 5 years now...and it still looks great. And the ability to go topless in the Summer is awesome. Oh...did I mention that I live in an apartment so I don't have any covered storage available.

Bestop.

BTW, your heep would look better with a front end on it, regardless of top color
