Rovers North/Badger Soft top with rails

I am looking for a RN/badger soft top for my '94.

Winter is creeping up on me here in colorado, and I REALLY don't want to be cold again this winter.

Which do you want, Rovers North or Badger Coachworks? They are not the same.

I want a soft top that doesn't suck. Rn one is cheaper. So let's start there.

RN ones DO suck although not as much as the bestop.

And most notably from my point of view, fit. RN tops are too big and the windows won't stay put at speed. They pull out of the belt rail at the bottom.

Agree - my 90 came with a RN top and it's a bit big over the front seats. The area around the doors isn't bad with ST doors but doesn't line up with SW doors for some reason. Last trip to VT the window pulled out at speed although after I reattached it, it stayed fine the rest of the way.

Recently had Chris install a Badger II with gutter kit. I love to meet the guys who do the work. Calling it amazing quality and craftsmanship doesn't do it justice...

Now we come across the problem, there are at least half a dozen other people who are looking for the same thing.

I see those around once in a while. That production stopped in September 2005. I saw one of the Rovers North tops locally and I am not impressed.

If your top has an embroidered label that says "Rovers North by Badger Coachworks", then it was made by us. If it has a patch sew on that says "Rovers North", then it was not made by us.
