    Bought a new aftermarket top for my daughter's jeep, the top flaps pretty loud now. What is anyone using to tighten it up?

    They can all be a bit noisy but if there is a really clear flapping going on the most common cause is the BOWS not installed/adjusted correctly allowing too much slop in the top. (cough...poetry is strictly accidental)
