Custom Fit Tops
When searching for an aftermarket Bestop Jeep soft top, identifying the existing hardware on your vehicle is an important step in deciding what kit to purchase. Some Jeep soft tops are designed to fit over your factory-original hardware, some over previously-purchased aftermarket hardware and some come with all the hardware required for the installation.
Examine the following pictures for your specific year, make and model to determine if you have the factory-original hardware, Bestop aftermarket hardware or hardware from another manufacturer. If your hardware does not match any of the provided pictures, it is not a Bestop or factory-original system, and installation of a Bestop aftermarket top may require the purchase of an entire soft top kit, rather than just a fabric replacement.
Factory-original hardware is sufficient to install a Bestop Replace-A-Top or Sailcloth Replace-A-Top.
Bestop Supertop hardware is an aftermarket application. To replace the fabric soft top, purchase of a Supertop Replacement Skin is required.
