If quadratec is close, find the best price online, then go to the warehouse and purchase from them, they price match and they have awesome customer service. Their shipping prices suck, and sometimes their prices on their items could be better, that's why I say find the best price.

Good luck!

Also, you need to decide if you want to drill in a header, or get the one that clips in where your soft/hard top latches in.. The drill in style will leak a little, but you can quickly put on the bikini, where as the non drill you will need to take it on and off to put on the soft top and it sort of bolts in and is a little bit of a pain, but not a big deal.

I got mine from windrock - I went with the 'clamp' style after having the drill in style before...the drill in one leaked all over my dash when it rained from 2 places. You could fix it with silicone but I decided I liked the clamp one better anyway. it adds 5-10 minutes to the put up/take down process, but I leave it on unless I am going to the full top due to really bad weather. You will learn to check the weather reports for the next day! Mr. Green
the clamp style seals much better because it seals very similar to your factory top.

That sucks...I've got a black safari top for a drill in header that I'll probably be selling soon.

I like quadratec because of their no BS return policy. I ordered my $450 half-top through them and somehow ended up with a returned unit. Didn't fit well at all. (Obviously why it was returned) I called them on it. Rep didn't even question it, just said there is another on the way out today and we'll dispatch a UPS pickup for the old one, please use the return label enclosed on your receipt.. we are truely sorry!

Now, my experience with Telico4x4 was complete opposite. Any damage or returns, customer pays the shipping. My whole story was questioned from the beginning. My soundbar came with a bad speaker, the guy told me to mail the whole soundbar back and they'll get me a new one once they received it. After a few phone calls, I got them to do a speaker exchange alone, still with my shipping and attitude. Instead I ended up going to best buy and got better units for $20.

Quadratec may charge a little more, but I've found it's worth the extra $10 to get better service. I've heard of story's where people have returned items a year later with no problems.
