    Bestop sucks. They make you jump through hoops when you have an issue. Let them move, hell they can move to China for all I care. I'll tie a Tarp to my roll cage before I ever buy a Bestop product.

    Did I say Bestop sucks, If not let me say it now. Bestop Sucks!

    What a load of crap. I hope that Jeep stops putting their tops on new vehicles, but I doubt they will. I need a new top for my jeep, but I won't be buying it through them. Now if all of the 4X4 shops, mags, internet sales places would boycot them, it would at least be a piece of mind for the workers there that the US is still supporting them. I went to Bestop and gave them a politically correct view of my feelings.

    here is what I asked on their website.


    I have used numerous Items from best top. Now I need a new top with tinted windows, Do you know of any other company that will still make thier products here in the USA. I cannot support you since you will be closing your AMERICAN PLANT, to help out a foreign countries economy. This is the same with Gold Tip Archery.
    Been ridin' instyle on Brads since '90-08 now stuck behind desk, please shoot me..
