Each kit includes doors, latches, bows and all necessary hardware. When folded, all hardware and the top stay together. Snaps are concealed on the top for a smooth look. In most cases, snap locations match factory-installed studs. New snap studs are also included. Click-shut doors have twist style handles. Side and rear curtains roll up safari-style for maximum shade and ventilation. Adjustable foam-covered bows provide a skin-tight fit.

The classic Tigertop™ is a tough, durable replacement for your aging soft top.

  • Easily attaches to vehicle with reinforced snaps for a clean, custom look.
  • For appearance and durability, the premium fabric maintains shape in any temperature.
  • Fabric is mildew-resistant, contains UV inhibitors and is offered in factory original colors.
  • Hardware on select applications is treated & powder-coated for rust resistance for long life.
  • Roll-up side and rear windows for convenient ventilation.
  • Heat-sealed vinyl windows meet U.S. and European regulations.
  • Industrial strength thread ensures durable soft top construction.
  • Kit comes with soft top and hardware. Some models include one-piece doors.
  • All Bestop soft top parts can be replaced individually, extending the value of your purchase.
