I do not want to step on a vendor or anything but why would anyone want a bestop. There are so many posts complaining about them. I thought most people were happy going badger or even Rn for the money.

We have had tons of calls from people looking for the Bestops to replace the one that was factory on there D-90. It took us over 10 years but we have finally got hooked up with them as a supplier. They are good tops for the money no they are not a Badger top but they are a good top that will be in stock and ready to go once we get the first shipment in.

Cheers

You mean just the top panel with no sides or back?

That is mainly for trucks that have lost there top and hardware but still have the belt rails on the truck.

when they came from rover they came with an alpine bar (why I dunno), the stiffener things near the b-pillar, the 5 snap door bars (again, why?), and roll cage pads, but I am not sure what AB's direct from besttop will come with, for that price I assume it will include the tailgate bar and the windscreen bar, but I will let Eric answer.

rover also used to sell just the top, no windows, which way back when I was a parts guy I had a D-90.com special on at $800 or $850 IIRC and given that $949 is with windows and everything you need if you just have a ripped top, it seems like a fair deal for those without 2200 for a badger. Personally, when I read this I thought $949 was without windows but on a reread, it includes them.

I am out of the office till Monday so I do not know at this time what they come with. I will get a list from Bestop and add it to this thread. Also Ron thanks for the help in trying to answer. I don't the mid 90's dealer side of the top story so that was good to hear.

How about us tickford guys. Does bestop make one? I personally do not want a belt rail type top. I like the old school snaps.

No luck on that. Only the belt rail style will be available.

Sorry

Once I get the tops here I will have them get some photos of what is included. Bestop couldn't give us a list.

We do not have a firm delivery date as of yet for full tops. They are taking extra time to get it all retooled correctly. We should see them in late April. As we get updates I will post them here. Once we receive the first shipment we will have constant stock but this first batch is taking extra time.
