Rampage top replacement fabric only

So bronco graveyard has advertised replacement fabric for rampage tops at $349 (and an extra 10% off right now) - our frame is perfect but fabric is shot - has anyone bought one of these?

Back to the top...

Not familiar with it myself, but I would imagine it fits where it's supposed to. Might depend on who's making them of course. If they're somehow sourcing them from the manufacturer, then they should be perfect.
Traditionally Rampage and all the others never sold the replacement tops at all (for Broncos) without just buying the whole thing with hardware. Maybe they've relented?
I can't even find reference to the Bronco tops on their site right now, so can't confirm.
Probably a quick call to Jeff's will let you know if they have it made special, or if the Diamond material was available from Rampage.

Either way though, make sure that dude is nicely warmed up before you go trying to install it!

Good luck

This is the last post I can find regarding replacement fabric for the Rampage soft tops, and the link is no longer working. I checked all the usual vendors and don't see any advertising the replacement fabric. Anyone know an option to get it these days?

Thanks!!

I have the BGY replacement top . They told me they have rampage build it with heavy duty zippers and thicker fabric for them . I can tell the difference in the fabric but not the zippers ? My old rampage top came apart at all the seams and where the zippers were sown in the black tread turned white and rotted .I think they might not have used outdoor thread by mistake some classic bronco members got replacement tops but not me they did not respond to any of my requests

I am lucky to live 15 mins from Tom’s and stopped in to ask about just a top as I had the hardware and they happened to have one. They had to replace some missing hardware on a previous order. I got lucky but it may be worth asking some vendors if they happen to have just a top laying around.

Thanks for the input guys! I will call around. My Rampage fabric has held up pretty good for around 5 years, but it is the seam stitching that has completely disintegrated.

The vendors should jump on this. There are a lot of old Kayline and STC tops out there with good frames and bad fabric. The Rampage top should fit these old frames.

I just called around to all the vendors as well as Rampage and no one sells this anymore. Seems like Rampage stopped offering it a few years back so no vendor can get it this way, and any extras they had lying around got scooped up by folks luckier then me already! Unless anyone has other suggestions I may take mine in to an upholstery shop and see what it would cost to redo all the seams with a sturdier thread since that seems to be the main issue.
