Soft Top ID

Is this a stock soft top? Came extra when I bought my 90.

The Bestop would be the factory(stock) top?

You could not be more right, I did it for the first time and it a pain to say the least.
Any suggestions as to what it would be worth without windows in like new condition?

Thanks Keith, you would not believe how many pavers we put in. The driveway was over 7000 sq feet. I am not allowed to park any of the Rover on the driveway because they might drip.

I have the same top.. stock bestop belt rail and yes - I'm not happy with mine either. They're tough to get on and off largely because they shrink..mine has 1-2 inch gaps at the doors and tailgate. Assuming yours is in good shape and you have the windows, you could prob get about $500 for it - based on what they seem to go for on here. I use mine as a surrey and think a few people do the same.

Just curious, what top do you run instead?

I would say if it is really nice $400 as it does not have windows.

if your asking me -
a good bestop (after the BII arrives in 6-8 weeks or so) (hate to rate it above 7.5 but its pretty decent and presentable with 1 tear around the spare tire carrier, which i am fixing, and 2 small (less than 1") rips on the seams, also will be fixed) and one that is fit only for making a surry out of only.

both have winders (i'll sell the second top san windows and sell them seperatly).
