Early Badger-made RN soft top for sale!

Hello D-90.com team!

I'm looking to sell the fabric door seal-style top that my 94 NAS D90ST came with a year ago, as I've replaced it with a Badger-II GK (Gutter kit) one.

(Let me add yet another gratuitous plug for Chris at Badger and his awesome products, customer support and general good-guyness. I couldn't be happier with my new B-IIGK top.) Now back to this one for sale!

I'd rate this used top as a 8.5 of 10. It's one of the original Rovers North-offered tops, designed and made by Chris at Badger for their catalog sales a few years ago. Since that time, RN have been making them somewhere else, from materials and to a standard that many believe is not as nice for nearly the same price as a real Badger top.) The back left rear panel shows the weathered embroidered RN logo, which Chris was able to confirm is one of the ones he made.

The top is in pretty good shape, and completely usable as-is, but the rear center vinyl window is starting to separate from the left zipper, and the windows show a little crazing as can be expected. They're still transparent and can be seen through, but are not perfect. All zippers work and straps are present to affix it to your NAS ST using your rollbar, doortop snaprails, side belt rails, tailgate bar and windscreen toprail. (None of those parts come with the top, but should be present on any stock, full-cage NAS D90ST that is not using snaprails.) The top was mounted on my 94 which has belt rails and tailgate bar.

I mentioned the eventually-needed window zipper repair on this top to Chris when I ordered my Badger-IIGK from him, and he said that he may be willing to repair the zipper for the buyer should I sell it. This would be at buyer cost and you would need to ask Chris nicely! You could also take it to a competent sailmaker or convertible top shop, and they should also be able to help, but don't expect Chris's obsessive work.

Photos were taken while it was drizzling a couple months ago, but those are the only photos I have of it on the truck, taken a few days before I installed my new top. Since removing it, itís been carefully stored in a dry garage. I'm hoping to clean out a garage a little before I re-deploy overseas next month.

RN sell their current, non-Badger-made (cheaper quality) version for around $2k on sale, or about $2300 when not on sale.

I'd like to get $900, including CONUS (48-state) shipping.

(I'll also consider talking trades with someone who has a good/newish R380 for when I swap out my fading LT77 and 4.6 hop-up.)

Please feel free to ask any questions!

Thanks for your interest.
Murph

I'd be all over it if I didn't have to buy the belt rail kits as well...

Belt rail through RN is 82.50 and tailgate bar is 84. I think you can get these cheaper. I used the belt rail kit and bought some snap screws so I could still use my tickford or tonneau on my top. These top seal so much better than a tickford.

Thanks for the bump Clay, and for the rail cost info for interested parties needing rails for use on 94 D90s without them already.

I'm also open to working trades, an I'll brainstorm and see if there is anything I can use beyond the aforementioned R380 that one of you guys might have and want to trade.

Thanks for the pm'ed offers from several of you, as well as the recommendations for selling the top from a couple more folks.

One last post and a lowered price before I list it on Ebay. I'd like to find a good home for the top without the Ebay headaches before I deploy overseas again next month.

$750 shipped to lower 48!

Bump!

My deployment departure has shifted to the right a month. I had a couple of guys interested that couldn't complete their purchase before I was initially supposed to roll.

Still out there and still interested? I have about three weeks to get it to you!

Not sure why this came up on top of my list of postings, does this mean that the top is still for sale ?

This looks like a post from 2008.

Yep, the top is still available. The original post was from about eight weeks ago.

I stopped trying to sell it as I started traveling for training and my departure approached, but as the date just shifted back a few weeks so I now have an opportunity again.

Thanks for you interest!

!

Yes, back when I was deploying on ships, my Dad used to refer to them as "pleasure cruises". Now that the trips are to places sandier and land-locked, my family refers to them as "adventure travel".

Just saw your PM, Gustavo, and you beat out another buyer by 35 minutes! Talk to you soon.
