So, $800 for a fiberglass top of unknown quality, with no glass and no latches, and which is incompatible with the factory rear mounting hardware.



Uhm... no.

so the top is $799, and the lexan window kit blah blah blah is $599 regularly. So it knocks off $599.....

I don't see how anyone would think putting up a picture of a rusty bolt and scratched product is good business. They could of at least centered the ******* washer.

Umm, why would anyone buy one when you can get an OEM for $800 pretty much anywhere, and likely for less.

I've got one of those way back and it's actually of a very decent quality. At the same time one of my buddies who ordered one in fiberglass received his top in pieces and never got a refund or anything. Personally I don't really care about rear mounting although it does seem a little weird.
