Default Jeep soft top help

<p>Shopping for a soft top for my gf's TJ. Don't want to join any jeep forums yet and enter that black hole.</p><p>It has a factory hardtop, and never had a soft top. What do I need to put a soft top on it. Currently browsing craigslist and found this:</p><p>Jeep Wrangler TJ stuff!</p><p>He has&nbsp;said so far:</p><p>

</p><p>You will need door surrounds.&nbsp;They go above your door and keep the top tight above you. I sold mine already. They go for $60</p><p id="691">
</p><p>Is this a good deal? I don't really know how the soft top even works lol.</p>

Do yourself a favor and buy a new one from Bestop.
A bikini top will not keep rain out. It is more of a sun shade. You want a full soft-top.
I switched tops every winter and the Bestop hardware is very easy to take on and off by yourself. I only had to drill 4 small holes for the rear flap, everything else bolted to factory locations.
Also, once you have the hardware you can buy replacement tops cheaper.
