This is the top that made Bestop famous! Jeep owners wanted a complete soft top replacement kit that did more than the factory top. Bestop took its OEM fabric design and developed adjustable frame hardware that folded back behind the rear seat, and added the BeltRail attachment system. The Supertop® Classic was born. It set a new standard when introduced nearly 30 years ago. And today, it's still in demand as a premium quality replacement soft top that folds back like a true convertible top.
the instructions where very unclear on how the bows and frame went together. The top once installed is a great top but if you are looking for a top to remove/ install quickly this is not it. I bought it to take hard to off when i went on vacation. It ended up being more of a pain to take off than the hard top would have been; so I ended up just leaving the top on and taking all the windows out. I would recommend this to a friend but I would explain what they where getting into.
The top is a great buy for a Jeep Cj5. It fits perfect and is easy to install with the proper knowledge and tools. It looks great on the jeep and has many great features like the two piece doors and zip out windows. It keeps rain out and makes the jeep a quieter ride. I get the most enjoyment out of the top on sunny days with the doors off and the windows out. The only con to this top is that during installation I didn't know you had to bend the doors where the top piece connects to get a proper fit between the door and the top.
Easy to install.Fit is really tight.
The Bestop Supertop in black denim for the CJ 5 is the best top I have ever used on my Jeep. It allows you to take out the window and store them when not in use which adds to the life of the top. Also it uses durable heavy duty zippers that hold up over time. The weatherstrips on the door and the belt rail seal the top like no other CJ top can. I like the 01 vinyl because it cleans easily and stays looking great. The adjustable bow assembly makes putting it up and down easy and keeps the top nice and tight. I highly recommend this top.
The Supertop with Tinted Windows without Doors in Black Denim is a great upgrade to any CJ8 Scrambler. The tinted windows give a nice custom look while providing security to what you are hauling. It comes with all of the hardware you will need to install. It lays back easily or just fold back for the safari look. The rear bow assembly is adjustable to tightened the top. A great feature is it will work with full steel doors, Bestop 2 piece doors or YJ steel half doors with Supertop uppers. It is easy to install and take off.

I bought this top for a 1977 CJ5 that previously had a hrd top on it. I opted for the denim finish, which is just a pattern embossed on the top, but it looks very good. The top came with all the screws, nuts, washers, and even snaps for a tailgate, if you need them. The bows and body trim pieces had a nice black finish on them. The instructions were clear and easy to understand, but take your time when doing the installation. I had to loosen the top up when I was done in order to loosen and push the windshield frame forward a bit so the top of the door frames would fit properly. All in all, not too hard of a job and it looks Great!
I bought this top midway through summer because I wasn't getting my hardtop off enough because it weighs too much and is too awkward to take off by myself. I really wanted to be able to have my top off whenever it was nice out. Buying this top was the worst decision I've ever made. The installation instructions are terrible! There are very few pictures and the few that they do show, they don't designate what side of the jeep you're looking at. None of the parts (close to 170 altogether) are designed for left or right either, so you are left guessing where certain pieces should go. The suggested three hour install time is a complete underestimate. I had a friend who installs car parts all the time and he was baffled by the instructions. It took us well over 14 hours over 2 days to install. Once we finally got the top installed, it did not fit properly. The major issue was that there was a large gap between the top of the door and the soft top. We even took it apart to make sure it was put together as the instructions directed and the problem still persisted. After getting replacement parts from bestop and installing them, nothing had changed. I ultimately decided to return the top because of all of the water damage my jeep. I ultimately decided to return the top because of this. The quality of this product is very poor and it looks cheap when you finally install it. If you're going to buy a new soft top and need the hardware, spend a little more money and you'll get a better looking top, easier install, a lot less parts, and no headache.
The top was easy to fit on the whole installation process was very informative and easy to understand.
Does this top come with replacement snaps also
Asked by Ed from on
Hey Ed, the Bestop Supertop with Tinted Windows without Doors does not use snaps to mount and will eliminate the snaps on your Jeep. Thanks for your question.

Will this top work with a 1976 cj5 with a fiberglass body?
Asked by Jon from Pa on
Hi Jon, This Bestop Supertop with Two-Piece Soft Doors fits fine on the CJ 5's with the fiberglass body. It's very complete with the channel attachments, bow assemblies, fabric, windows and doors. For the thicker fiberglass body we recommend obtaining some longer sheet metal screws to install the body channels, such as a 14x3/4 inch screw, also 1/4 inch flat washers (25 of both) and a 7/32 inch drill bit. Thank you for your question.

Does this kit include spare tire cover?
Asked by Mark from Rogers, AR on
Mark, Unfortunately the Bestop Supertop with Two-Piece Soft Doors does not come with a spare tire cover. The tire cover is available separate and is dependent on tire size for correct fitment. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
