Choosing The Best Jeep Soft Top For Your Vehicle

One of the coolest things about owning a Jeep is its versatility. These vehicles are not only off-road beasts but also give you a chance to install lots of custom modifications to create a unique Jeep build that will leave heads turning as you cruise by.

As the weather warms up, you can take your driving experience to another level by adding a soft top on your Jeep. Trust us, nothing compares to the exhilaration of feeling the sun on your skin or the wind rushing through your hair as you take to the great outdoors.

What To Consider When Choosing A Jeep Soft Top

If you’re planning on going topless often, then a soft top is perfect for you. Compared to hard tops, soft tops have a couple of advantages namely:

  • They’re easy to remove and install- in case of sudden weather changes.

  • They are portable so some can be easily folded up and stored in your Jeep.

  • Their light materials make them perfect for warm weather and certain outdoor activities.

popular Jeep accessories are available in a wide range of materials, colors and styles so you’re sure to find one that suits your vehicle and needs. With so many different tops to choose from, how do you decide on the right one for you?

We at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive decided to help you out. Here are some things to consider prior to your purchase:

  1. Which style or look are you going for?

Your choice of soft top for your Jeep will depend on whether you want a traditional, factory style, square-box top for your vehicle or a frameless, fastback look (the kind that has slanted rear windows).

  1. What’s your lifestyle?

You also need to consider how often you’d want the top off. What is the weather like in your area and is it practical to have a bikini soft top that only covers the front seats or a safari top that provides more coverage. These might not offer a lot of coverage if you’re off-roading in dusty or muddy trails.

  1. How easy is it to carry and install the soft top?

If you’re off-roading in Moab, you know how quickly the weather changes so you need a soft top that is easy to remove and pull back down and one that’s also easily portable.

  1. Is the soft top a matching fit for your Jeep?

If you’re replacing a soft top, check that it’s a match for your Jeep’s existing hardware. The framework for a factory soft top isn’t the same as the one replaced by a custom dealer so watch out for that.

  1. Which other accessories do you want with your soft top?

Another thing to consider is the kind of window options you’d like with your soft top. You can choose from zippers, Velcro or easy-slide fastenings for your windows. You also need to decide whether you want windjammers or dusters along with your soft top.

If you’re looking for a soft top for your Jeep, visit one of the Dixie 4 Wheel Drive shops in Moab or St. George. We’ll be glad to help you out.
