    I am thinking of buying a new top from New Life in VT. Do any of you have this top? Are there any options or variables to this one?

    Thanks

    I bought mine from ODcloth.com - weebee webbing.

    Overall I'm happy though there was about a 4 week wait to get it. My biggest complaint is that something is amiss with the snaps and they are terribly difficult to snap/unsnap to the point that they rip out of the top if I'm not careful.

    I've heard bad stuff about every top out there except the one from new life. So far, all I've heard about the New Life one is good stuff. I just wanted to hear it from an actual owner. A pic would be nie too.

    I'm in NC so I will definately get the roll up top. I am looking forward to seeing pics of yours. How much did you have to pay for the roll up version?

    I e-mailed NLR last week and haven't gotten a response from them yet.

    I am hoping to get one this week so I can get rid of the tarp.

    Default Different Yokes for the Differentials?

    I have done business with Judith at New Life Resources before. She does outstanding work. She took my ripped, shrunk, tattered 7 piece original top from my 51 cj 3a and made a perfect copy of the original. It fits and looks great. She is in Bakersfeild Vt. I just got into this 715 thing and already know she will make my top for it. As price, you will not find a more resonable price top for the quality. One thing is, she is very busy as she does all the work herself, be patient it is worth it. nlrm@together.net that is her email she does not have a web site.

    I've heard good things about NLR. I know the wee-bees and well...my mommy always said if you can't say something nice....
    Anyway some folks around here have gotten tops for other mvs from NLR and have said they do good work. Just my $.02 worth.
