Jeep Tops at a Glance
When it comes to selecting the right top or your Jeep, you have a lot of options. This article should give you a quick overview and help you determine which type of top is right for you. Whether you drive your Jeep through snowy New England winters, or just cruise to the SoCal beach, there is a top that is the right fit for your lifestyle.
- Hard Tops
- Soft Tops
- Super Tops
- Bikini or Brief Tops
These are the best winches for your Jeep!
Winch Capacity (Rated Line Pull)
The first important consideration in choosing a winch is the winch manufacturer’s line pull rating. This is a combination of the mechanical capacity of the winch and the tensile strength of the line on the drum. The important part to remember is that, unless otherwise indicated, rated capacity is based on the first layer of winch cable (the one closest to the drum). Typically, there are three or four layers and that first one has the “lowest” gear ratio and the most pull.
How much pull is enough? The rule-of-thumb minimum is to take your GVW (that’s Gross Vehicle Weight, not curb weight) and multiply it by 1.5.
