New and improved XHD Replacement Soft-Tops from Rugged Ridge are now available with 50% thicker glass! Each Fabric Soft Top is specifically designed to easily fit the factory original soft top hardware. Simply take off the old top and slip on the new. It's just that easy! These new designs feature reinforced stitching on the heavy "pull" areas as well as heavy duty 30 mil thick glass! All XHD Soft Tops feature durable vinyl coated polyester and cotton fabric that will last the test of time. All sewn seams use marine grade thread to make sure it does not deteriorate or discolor in the sun. Each seam is literally "welded shut" with durable heat seal tape to keep moisture out while keeping the original look of the top intact. Attaching the Rugged Ridge Top is easy with the factory original "belt rail" attachment method; simply tuck under the rail and go!
Strong good windows but piping that attaches to back and tailgate is flimsy
Purchased this for my partner's birthday gift and of course I had to be the one to also put it on. The top looks just like the original (minus the tears and holes that the old one had). Easy to put all the pieces together and directions worked just fine. The one reason I give it 4 stars is due to the extreme tightness that the top had due to it's newness. We spent an hour just trying to stretch it into place. I know that it will eventually loosen up, but this seemed to be way too tight. Hopefully it loosens up enough that we'll feel safe taking it off to enjoy the weather.
We at Rugged Ridge apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced. We invite you to contact us directly, so we can resolve the issue to your satisfaction. If the product is defective, our policy is to replace it. We hope to hear from you soon. Soft tops are available in different materials, and the material used dictates performance. This particular top is made of a high-performing vinyl-coated polyester. While vinyl is highly durable and relatively quiet, it is not ideal for every driver and every application. An alternative material to consider is sailcloth. Sailcloth is more expensive than vinyl, but some Jeep owners prefer its sound characteristics. Mike James Director of Sales and Marketing
This top is nice if you drive 45 mph or less anything above that and it sounds like your driving thru a hail storm don't even think about talking to anyone on the pass.side. OH,and by the way if you buy it and are not happy you are stuck with it cause they won't exchange it if you have installed it. Don't buy cause you won't know it sucks till its too late.
I have a 2005 Wrangler and the top is a Khaki Green, the color shown is a shade of brown and I want the closest color to original. Please advise.

Carl, the Rugged Ridge XHD Replacement Soft Top with Tinted Windows will be the closest color we carry to your top. Thanks for the question!

Hi, is the clear window included with the door skins? I am assuming it all goes together. I have to replace the factory top. This top will work correct on 2003? Thanks
Asked by Mick from Hanover Pa on
Mick, the Rugged Ridge XHD Replacement Soft Top with Tinted Windows includes the upper doors which have the windows in them. It's made for 03-06 TJ's that have the factory hardware for the soft tops. Hope this helps!

My original top is described as 'sailcloth'. The khaki color is no longer available from the OEM. I want to keep the original color, but also want that premium material. I note the term diamond is often attached to sailcloth. Is this material the same, similar, or something different?
Asked by Rick from Florida on
Hi Rick, The term "Diamond" is referring to the shade of the color, it replaced the duller denim look in 2003 but has no connection to if a top is sailcloth or not. This upgraded XHD version from Rugged Ridge is as close as you will find to the Bestop Sailcloth. Thanks for the inquiry!
