    OK i finally saved up the $600 for a new softtop and STC is gone! Bestop sells a snap top, but it also lists for $200 more than the fastrac top that STC sold. Somebody please post a a message saying it's all going to be alright. What's the word on a new manufacturer selling the top?

    I'm pretty sure they are gone for good. If you have one of their tops, treat it right, it might be the last of it's breed.

    my plan is if it gets too torn up a custom appolstry place could probably build one pretty easy with a template of an old one vs having to design from scratch

    That's my new plan too. Luckly, mine is only 2 years old, but I've got a couple spots where the seams are starting to split.
