Hi y’all. After having a Jeep and FJ Cruiser Ive now pulled the trigger and finally gotten the FJ40 I’ve been looking for. Only real issue is that it needs a new top. After much research it appears this that the primary options available for soft tops are SOR, Bestop, and Relik. Looks like the other vendors are either out of business or have super long wait times so I’ve ruled them out. Id like something that works with the original frame/hoops that I have and the jeep esthetic of the Bestop isn’t my thing so I’m mainly interested in the SOR or Relik tops. Am I missing other vendors that I should look for? Also anyone have a good local shop in the North Alabama / Middle Tennessee area. I’d rather support local whenever possible.

Thanks y’all.

Thanks a bunch for responses. Very much appreciated
She should reply in a day or two, I included her in the conversation (@Julie2006). She is super busy but was able to knock out a Trail cover for me in less than a month. She can be found on FB. Her bread and butter business is boat stuff (Anchor Stitch of Easley, SC #864-307-9650)

8 months…. wow. I’ll contact them as well. but that is my fear. My plan was to do a soft top while I pulled together things for a hardtop. May switch to plan b and keep using my worn out top.

Buy her top it's worth the wait.
The others are usually good but if something is "wrong" there is no customer support.

@miller may be interested in your old top fabric. He posted a WANTED ad not too long ago.
