    Soft top boot recommendations?

    I’m removing and selling my 3rd row setup which will allow me to fold my soft top as designed. The RH4x4 bar wouldn’t allow this easily so I’d just pull the entire top to go topless.

    I bought the top used and there wasn’t a boot with it. My brief searches show several options, most of which have questionable reviews. Seems like the Mopar version is the best liked??? It is pricey though compared to the others. Maybe a good reason for that? Suggestions? Thanks!

    Soft Top Boot recommendations

    Disclaimer: I am not in any way affiliated with the following company. They just have several products that I have been interested in for a while.

    JTopsUSA.com: they've got Made in USA boots in a variety of colors. Based in Texas according to their web site. Maybe check them out? I haven't purchased anything from them yet- fair warning. But a boot and sun top are in the accessory column on my build wish list, so I've been searching around a bit myself.

    Thanks! They look nice and the price is way better. Need to do some more reading and find some reviews, hopefully.

    For the time being, a couple of bungee balls and Velcro straps are being used.

    Is your soft top a factory top? I am just curious because I am looking for a soft top right now, but I also have the RH4x4 bar.

    Yes, it’s factory from a ‘14 I bought used.

    Edit: This is where the interference happens with the RH4x4 bar and factory soft top.

    I guess it's the "Super Stocker" build

    I got the mopar boot for my 2011 JKU. Works well. Pain in the ass to get in on perfectly, but with practice it is manageable. Adds another 10-15 minutes to top-down time.

    What’s the purpose? Just keep it clean/protected?

    Well, I was looking for this as well. It’s a cleaner look, IMO, but my bungee ball and Velcro strap setup just survived 20 miles at 70 mph. Didn’t budge a bit.

    If my top is down or off over here, there is dust getting inside on everything. For me, based on internet pics, just looked cleaner (not as messy as in soft top material messy, not dust)with a boot. Sounds like a bit of a PITA and I could spend my money on something else.

    I only have the hard top. Fortunately where I live I can take the top off about now and leave it off until December and too cold. I typically run topless and doorless. All spring, summer, fall

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
