    I'm looking to buy a rag top for my 73 cj5. I have looked at the Best Top/Supertop on the Morris 4WD site.
    Bestop Supertop Black 51595-01
    Does anyone know of a better top available, without being custom made?
    Thanks
    Tim

    Supertops are awesome...I love mine. It's 18 years old & just starting to show some wear and tear.
    The rail mounting system is miles ahead of the old snap type, the doors are larger for easier ingress/egress, and the 2 piece doors and removable sides & back make it very versatile.

    AFAIK your only choices today are the Bestop Supertop, the Bestop Tigertop, or custom.

    Rub a little paraffin on the zippers and the work better. I did this on my 73 and it helped.

    This. Or a bar of soap.
    There is zipper lube available from the Jeep dealer that comes in a squeeze bottle with with a brush built-in specifically for applicating to the zipper. The stuff is sticky gorilla snot but sinks in and works well. I won some in a raffle and tried it. A little goes a long way.

    Some of my zipper pulls broke on my BestTop. I attached black 3M zip ties and left a loop..
