Re: Rock Gear Tops?? pros&cons
I have their fullback top for my CJ-7. It's great, I can't complain. It's easier to install and use that the Bestops IMHO. The only thing to warn about is the top relies on the rear "family" bars of the '94+ Wranglers to hold the rear of the top. Unless you've added them in, you will need to purchase their bolt on bars, which I did not like. I wound up using parts from an old bikini top to make my rear supports. I plan on adding in the rest of the roll cage this winter anyways, so it's not a big deal.
You asked for pros and cons:
-You can either stow all the windows in the top itself for the safari look, or you can unzip them all and run just the summer top portion.
-There's a net on the front of the top to hold stuff.
-High grade materials are used. Once you see/feel the material you'll know what I mean.
-No support bars (well, see above) to deal with. Even the bars they sell to complete the rear portion of the cage are bolted in - they do not fold, so all you have to do is throw the top over, slip it in the w/s channel, and put the strips into the side rails.
Anyhoo, I will never go back to the overpriced Bestop tops.
