    Hello everyone!
    I am new to this forum and I recently bought an 02 wrangler sport.
    The topp that came with it is a "brand new" rampage top.
    Not only is the top very lose, but the zipper is broken on the back window.
    Now I can't get the back window in.

    I am looking for recommendations for a good tight fitting top that is user friendly all the way around.
    Thank you in advance

    I tried to go cheap on top. Bought rugged ridge first, returned and got a rampage. Had your same problems and they came unstitched. Bought the more expensive best top. No issues.

    Fixed the looseness problem the first time I took the top off and put it back on.
    My top is a rampage.
    Guess I will check into best top.

    Thank you for the pointers!

    As far as the windows fogging....run down to your local motorcycle shop and get a can of the spray on plexiglass cleaner we use on windscreens and face screens on our helmets. Use a clean microfiber cloth. (NO PAPER TOWLES!!!)
