Yep. They said I don't have to replace the rails or the windshield retainer on my current system.So they are sending you an entire new top? I would say that is good customer service.
I still don't have a great seal with their two-piece soft doors but it's better than what you have going on. I bent the door frame to push the top of the door against the top more to get what I have now.Ugh. I'm really hoping that's not the case here.
I've never considered getting half doors, but I started considering it now to see if the soft upper would fit better with the top.
That bugs the hell out of me too. I mean that just goes to show how little Bestop has done to make their tops work on all Jeep models. The ad even states how they designed it so it’s easier to close the tailgate. So frustratingMy biggest bitch on the Supertop was the rear window mechanism. Close the tailgate on the channel with the window unzipped, reach through the open zipper to latch the tailgate, then zip it all up. That has got to be the worst design of all. It works on a Wrangler with the tailgate latch handle on the outside, but not on a Scrambler.
Not saying the full length Velcro seal on the old Kayline tops was any better, but it was less frustrating for the most part.
If I had kept Copper, or decided on a full soft top for Red, I would have had to come up with something more user-friendly. I started a side-hinge tailgate conversion but never got further than mock-up stage.
Better by a cost factor of three or so.That bugs the hell out of me too. I mean that just goes to show how little Bestop has done to make their tops work on all Jeep models. The ad even states how they designed it so it’s easier to close the tailgate. So frustrating
What’s the company in CO that is reproducing the other soft tops? I wonder if they’re better.
It looks to me like Rhinyl and b-dco are the same company. Both have the same address.BD Co is just the distributor for Rhynil Products. Looking at their website, it looks like they're pretty exclusively into the International Scout businees these days. May be worth contacting them directly to see if they even make Scrambler tops any more.
