The Bowless Top from Rugged Ridge is the most versatile Jeep soft top of the market. It allows you to convert instantly from a full top to a summer brief, and eliminates the need for the bulky OE soft top frame. The Bowless Top fits snuggly over the factory roll bar for a more aerodynamic “fastback” look, but retains your factory door surrounds and tailgate bar to provide an air tight fit. Convert to a summer brief by simply unzipping the side windows and stowing them in the rear window storage fold designed into the top. The Bowless top is made to the same specifications as our factory replacement tops and features: reinforced stitching on the heavy “pull” areas, as well as heavy duty 30 mil thick DOT approved window glass, durable vinyl coated polyester and cotton fabric, and all sewn seams use marine grade thread to make sure it does not deteriorate or discolor in the sun.

Comments about Rugged Ridge Bowless XHD Soft Top:

Good top without the bulky factory hardware when folded down.

This is a good, solid choice for a replacement top. It allows re-use of some factory hardware, thus keeping cost to a minimum. Nice fit and well thought out design allows this top to be used as a full bikini top with a storage for the windows. Design also includes two zip pockets for small item storage. Quiet at low speeds, some whistle/wind noise at highway speeds, due to old-school header attachment system.

My only complaint, with all the top advancements, you would have thought that for the TJ model they would have used the compression latch header system or given you the option to reuse your factory header latch system from the old top. Instead you are left with the old school windshield header. While it is simple and easy to use, it can rely on two people to install it and often during the worst time. There is a reason this header style was redesigned!

    I was more impressed with the Rampage top, because of the protected storage of the windows.
