Another Soft Top Thread

Couple questions about the Bestop Supertop....

1) For the guys that have bought them, where'd you get them? (best prices, etc)

2) I'm probably heading up north next year, to a place where it got to about -50 celcius (about -16 F I think...). How will these things hold up to that sort of weather?

3) How do they fit in w/ stock hard doors? Are they relatively rain/snow resistant?

Thanks in advance

So what made you decide on the Bestop. I was leaning towards the Kayline (STC)?

Looks like it fits the tub fairly well/tightly and I like that you don't have to drill into the body at all (have enough rust problems as it is), but I guess the Kayline is like that too?

Also, from the pics on coolcruisers.com, it looked like there was a lot more windows on the Kayline then in the Bestop. Most of the soft tops I've ever dealt w/ have the windows going sort of glazed/foggy before the other material has too much problem.

So, basically, didnt' really base the decision on anything

I've seen Helocat's Kayline Soft Top and it's a really good design. Really easy to take on and off in about 5 minutes time. The only downside that i've heard about them is when wheeling, the aluminum railing thing gets bent real easy especially if you do a lot of wheeling in forests.
