Doors & Windows

2-Piece Soft Doors

My 2-Piece Soft Doors are not fitting in the door opening properly, what should I do to fix this?

It is common that your 2-Piece Soft Doors may take a bit of adjustment to fit properly. With the door open, place your hands on the top of the soft door and pull downward towards the vehicle. Do not worry about breaking the doors as Bestop doors are produced using heavy-duty tubular steel. Adjust as needed. Also, Bestop offers adjustments on the pivot pins to assist with a better overall fit.

 

Door Kits

Sometimes at highway speeds my soft upper doors pull away from my soft top allowing wind into the vehicle, what can I do to stop this?

It is common that your Soft Upper Doors may need to be bent inwards in order to get a better sealing surface with the soft top. With the door open, place your hands on the top of the soft door and pull downward towards the vehicle. Do not worry about breaking the doors as Bestop doors are produced using heavy-duty tubular steel. Adjust as needed. Also, Bestop includes round collars with our door kits. Using these collars around the door pins will help with height adjustment. For 2-Piece Soft Doors, Bestop offers adjustments on the pivot pins to assist with a better overall fit.

 

Upper Door Sliders

Can I purchase replacement parts for my Upper Door Sliders?

Unfortunately, the Upper Door Sliders come in a cassette and can only be sold as individual finished doors. If these cassettes are disassembled, it is very unlikely they could be reassembled correctly without the appropriate tools; therefore, we are unable to sell replacement parts for them (i.e. glass, latches, weather stripping).

If you believe you have a warranty issue, Bestop offers a one-year Limited Warranty on its Upper Door Sliders. Please reference your installation instructions, contact your place of purchase, visit our Limited Warranty page, or call toll-free in the U.S.A. and Canada at 1-800-845-3567 (International Customers please call U.S.A. 303-465-1755) or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.

For product still within its warranty period, please call your place of purchase regarding any warrantable issues. For product beyond the set warranty pariod, contact Bestop for further instructions.

 

Windows

One of my windows has a small dent or impression in the vinyl - how do I get it out?

We recommend that the window be exposed to direct sunlight for a period of 3 days. Heat and direct sunlight make the vinyl more pliable and in many cases will remove or reduce minor dents and small scratches from the vinyl window.

 

Windows are not covered under warranty for cold cracks.

Bestop Soft Tops

 

If I'm missing a part from my new Bestop soft top kit, what do I do?

Do not return the product! Call the place you purchased your Bestop soft top from, and your missing part will be sent to you.

 

Does Bestop offer soft top colors that will match my original soft top fabric?

Bestop offers a wide variety of fabric colors and is the factory supplier to DaimlerChrysler Jeep®; therefore, our fabrics offer factory original (OEM) quality and a perfect color-match to factory original fabrics. Bestop also offers many unique fabrics. Visit our Fabric Swatches page to view the variety of colors and fabric types available.

 

Can I get replacement parts for my Bestop soft top?

Yes. A majority of parts are available and can be purchased directly from Bestop or our distributors. You may call toll-free in the U.S.A. and Canada at 1-800-845-3567 (International Customers please call U.S.A. 303-465-1755) or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information or contact any of our Where to Buy distributors.

 

What is the life expectancy of a soft top?

The life of a soft top varies depending upon a variety of factors including usage, whether it's garaged, regular cleaning, regular maintenance, etc. In most cases; however, a soft top will last from 3 to 5 years.

 

How long does it take to install a fabric soft top, if I have never installed one before?

At optimum temperature (above 72° F)*, following are the times it takes the average person:

Replace-a-top™ - up to 1.5 hours
Supertop® - up to 3 hours
Sunrider® - up to 3 hours
Tigertop™ - up to 3 hours
Halftop™ - up to 2 hours

 

*Note: Below 72° F, the fabric may contract an inch or more, making it more difficult to fit to the vehicle.

 

Can I custom order a soft top for my vehicle or order one in a special color?

Unfortunately, as much as we'd like to, Bestop does not do custom work orders. Because there are so many different vehicle styles and fabrics, Bestop would be unable to accommodate your request in a timely or cost effective manner.

Truck Accessories

 

Where do I measure my truck bed in order to determine which BestRail™ Channels fit my vehicle?

When measuring for BestRail™ Channels, the length of your truck bed will determine which BestRail™ Channels you need. To properly measure the length, make sure to measure from the inside of the front of the bed to the inside of the tailgate.
