We are looking for a good quality twill soft top (full). We are also looking for a good quality twill Surrey top.

Things I have learned so far:
1. Chris (Badger) makes excellent tops, but it will be 6-12 months before I can get one
2. There are two main versions of the Badger tops:
- Gutter kit
- Fabric door seal
3. I don't have all of the original NAS hardware that I need
4. I already have an Alpine Bow installed
5. I'm pretty sure I have the belt rails installed (pic attached)

Our D90 arrived with the fiberglass hard top fitted and it also came with a BesTop soft top & windows in a bag. Unfortunately, the only loose soft top hardware included was a tailgate bar. Also, the included top has damage here & there (I'm not sure if it's repairable).

Parts I'm looking for:
- NAS Header Bar
-- The only thing I can find is a ROW header bar on RoversNorth
-- It doesn't have a snap like the NAS does (I'm guessing that's a problem)
- Tailgate bar kit (or replacement clips/hardware)
-- While I do have a tailgate bar, I don't have the plastic clips that go on the tub
-- Is there only one type of bar?
-- e.g. Can I use the BesTop bar with a Badger top and Exmoor clips?
- Horizontal Bars / 5-stud Rails (pair)
** or **
- Gutter Kit
-- The only thing I could find that looks right is the 90" Xs Drain Channel Kit
-- RN Model #: EXT220-15, price $594.62
-- Is this what I want?

I'm also looking for a good quality top. I have seen used Badgers (full soft top) going for around $800 on here, but I have missed out on them.

I would consider buying aftermarket, NOS, or used for all of this stuff.

Please let me know what you have.

Thank you!

Hi Brian-

How much for everything *except* the truck cab top?

My kids enjoy riding with me too much...

You can send me a PM if you prefer.

Thanks,
Mike

Still waiting to hear back...

I bought a header bar from another member and it was shipped today.

Cheers!

I think I’m going to hold off for a Badger. Please let me know if you have one for sale.

I got my BesTop repaired & it’s cold in Utah already (so no rush)!

Thanks!
