The Rampage Frameless Trail Top installs over the original equipment factory roll bar for a snug fit without the need for additional bows or support hardware. This unique design allows for larger side windows and improved visibility with removable side and rear windows that quickly convert the soft top into an open safari top.
Like the other reviews, the top is EXTREMELY difficult to install initially, particularly the rear window-even after allowing it to "loosen" up at 90 degrees for a few hours! During the third removal of the rear window, the zipper tore-I DID say it was tight. I called and after sending pix, was given another rear window, what I didn't notice was that the zipper on the left side of the rear window-on the side panel-had torn also. I just used it as a Bimini top until I re-installed the HT. VERY noisy at 50+ in the front. I will NOT re-install it again, just chalk it up to a bad experience. I did not experience the "sag" others speak of. Actually very well made, just too damn tight!
I purchase this top for my 04 Rubicon about 2 1/2 yrs ago and have not had it off since, except to clean it. It is simple to install and I LOVE the fact that I no longer caught out without the windows when it decides to rain!! It has been easy to maintain, MUCH MUCH easier than the other 3 tops I have had for my jeep!! It takes about 1/2 as much effort as the rugged ridge and best top that I had before this one!! I do have issues with the zippers on the back window, but that is MY own doing. Locked my key in the jeep and had to break in through the back window, in the middle of winter!! I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a replacement for the factory or aftermarket soft top!!!!
Top is good quality. My only complaint was the instructions, they are very poor and dont give you much help as far as installing it goes. Top is very quiet on the interstate and doesnt flap. I also looked at the Soft topper brand but am glad I went with the Rampage.
Had this top on a 99 TJ and loved it! However I got rid of the TJ and got a new JK and as soon a I saw they finally made it for them I was on board! Its awesome to be able to store the windows without just stuffing them behind the back seat and scratching them! Super easy to install (15-20 mins including removal of previous top). I am experiencing some minor leaks though around the header channel. Nothing serious and it does not occur when actually driving. But all in all great product!
Zipper ends disintegrated. side curtains ripped at seperation at lower plastic insert. rear window, upper securing strap ends need to be cut on a diagonal to expedite installation.(poor design) Rear, top tie downs don't like the sun.(wrong material) Curtain/window storage system is a pain to use.
The first time you install it, it take a while. you have to stretch out the top, adjust it, re stretch, adjust again, etc. It was right around the 70 degree mark so i had to run the heater to help soften the material. After the first time it is simple to adjust. Since i have an 05 LJ, I wish the top would come in more colors than just black. Also, i believe because of the curved end caps on the required windshield channel there is a ton of wind noise at the front cover. I am used to wind noise in a jeep soft top, just not from the front corners.
The fact that it is cheap is great but I wish I went with some better built. Forget about folding the back and sides in on itself because you would have some major sag. I ended up putting my own cross beams in the back just to tighten it up. Also hooks that connect the top to the rear dont fit well and I have had to bang them in. It is also extremely noisy, even for a Jeep. Just the safari top is great however and that works great. If you can keep you Jeep indoors with just the top on it isn't bad. Still, you have to be careful with it and make sure everything is in place when putting it together.
The straps dry rot quickly and are made of poor quality material. For the price this product should have lasted a lot longer. The top just started to slowly fall apart after a year of use. No replacement available and now having to buy another top. :(

I really like the design of the top and how it looks. it was a little hard to install at first tho. I bought the sail cloth and it was kinda a pain to make it stretch, over all the top is sweet. looks awesome super quiet and I love that I can now hide the windows in the top when I take them out. The only thing I don't like is the after market windshield channel I got. I don't think it was a rampage but it didn't contore to the window. the ends raised up about a half of an inch. so I drilled holes used a self taping screw and it lays down now lol. with the top on u cant see the screws and with the top off u still cant. I used a little black touch up and they disappeared. over all I love this top. it looks awesome its super quiet on the road, even at 90 mph on the freeway u get almost no wind noise. over all I would def recommend this to a friend.
I purchased this product but need to know what hardware is essential to place this on my 2017 Jk Sport Unlimited. I have a hard top and am using this for the summer season. Overall really impressed with the product just can't wait to put it on and have no idea what is needed. Thanks!

Does this come with the upper door skins? If not, I haven't found Rampage brand upper door skins. What brand would match the material/color of the Rampage top?
Asked by Gulf Coast Girl from Biloxi, MS on
Gulf Coast Girl, the Rampage Bowless Soft Top does not come with upper doors. You can find the matching ones here: http://www.4wd.com/eSearch.aspx/Rampage?N=1z13x1fZ16vi3Z1z13yvg&Ntk=primary&Ntt=upper+door Thanks for the question!
