Jeep Wrangler Bestop OE Style Soft Top Replacement Bow & Frame Kit (2007-2017 JK 4-Door) Review

October 11, 2019


This is for those of you that already have
a soft top installed on your Jeep. The frame is bent or broken in one way or
another, but the actual canvas of the soft top is in good shape and you just need to
replace the frame. Or, if you have a hard top installed on your
Jeep, you found a great deal on a soft top but you need a frame for it, this is going
to be a good kit for you. Today we’re gonna talk through the installation
of this frame kit, which is a very simple one-out-of-three wrench installation. There are a lot of parts that come with this
kit, so the install might take you two hours or a little bit more, but no major modifications
or drilling necessary to your Jeep so it’s still a very easy one-out-of-three wrench
bolt-on install, and we’ll talk more about that in just a second. Now, this is going to include everything you
need as though you didn’t have a soft top on your Jeep at all. It’s going to have all of the frame work,
but just not the soft canvas pieces. So, if you have a hard top, if you have a
soft top, you’re looking for a complete replacement, Bestop offers that where you get the frame
and the soft top together. Bestop also offers a replacement top that’s
just going to be the soft canvas pieces and the windows, without the frame. And then, they offer this, which is just the
frame without the soft canvas pieces. So, we and Bestop have you covered, no matter
what you need for your soft top, whether it be the frame, the whole top, or just the canvas
section. Now, this is going to be an OE-style frame,
so it’s going to look, function, and install just like an OE frame, but it’s going to be
less expensive than if you were to go directly to a dealership to purchase a brand new frame. As far as the construction goes, as I said,
this is just like an OE frame. It’s going to function, look, and be built
just like one. It’s going to be a metal frame covered in
a powder-coat finish. This is going to have your header, your frame,
all of your door surrounds, all of your brackets, everything that you need to install the soft
top on your Jeep, except for the top itself. This is going to use all of your factory mounting
locations on your sport cage and on your tub, so there’s no drilling or major modification
needed, and you’ll be able to bolt your factory or factory-style soft top directly to this
frame and use it very easily. Like I said, this is going to be a very easy
one-out-of-three wrench installation. It may take you around two hours to get this
installed, especially if you’re installing that soft top on the frame because it’s a
couple of additional steps. But, it is going to be bolt-on, so it is going
to be very easy without any major modifications needed. Just some hand tools, and you can do this
in your driveway. Now, the first step in this installation is
going to be a little bit of assembly. There are a couple of parts that come in the
box that need to be bolted to each other before you actually put anything on your Jeep. From there, you can install all of the brackets
on your Jeep if you don’t currently have them installed. Go ahead and bolt the soft top to the frame
so that you can very easily put that top up and down in a factory fashion. And then, finally, put the actual frame assembly
on to the Jeep. Again, very easy install, but there are gonna
be quite a few steps. Make sure you follow the instructions. Give yourself a little bit of time, and you
can get this done in your driveway. This soft top frame is going to be pretty
fairly priced at $600. Now, you’re going to get a very high quality
soft top frame that’s going to install just like a factory one. It’s going to include all of the parts, all
of the brackets, everything you need to get it installed, and I do think it’s worth the
price if you’re looking for a brand new soft top frame. So, whether you have a soft top installed
on your Jeep, the canvas is good but the frame is beat and you’re looking for a brand new
frame, or you found a great deal on a soft top but you don’t currently have a soft top
frame for it, this is going to be a really nice option for you. This is gonna include everything you need,
and it’s going to operate and look just like a factory frame. So, that’s my review of the Bestop OE Style
Soft Top Replacement Frame and Bow Kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right

  1. Most repetitive video I have ever seen in my life, you literally repeated the exact same sentence 11 times, but in a different way. Not sure how this is a review considering you didnt really talk about the pros/cons; rather you just said it comes with all the parts.
