Seals inside the cylinders get upgraded, and design flaws get rectified. Cylinders rebuilt by Top Hydraulics perform better than brand new ones, and Top Hydraulics' seals will far outlast those in brand new OEM cylinders. The set we are shipping to you may not be perfect cosmetically, because it has been used before. We do our best to clean up or polish out external blemishes, but what really matters is what's inside the cylinders.
Set of 7 upgraded cylinders, with the best seals available. All OEM cylinders will eventually fail, accelerated by heat and impurities or water in the hydraulic fluid - Top Hydraulics replaces the chemically decaying seals with far superior material.
The full set consists of two main drive cylinders (mounted in the soft top frame), two bow tension cylinders (also mounted in the soft top frame), one tonneau cover lift cylinder, and two locking or latch cylinders (locking down the rear window and the storage cover).

Note: retract the polished shaft on the cylinder before removing the hydraulic line clips. Otherwise, an accidentally slipping tool may scratch or dent the polished shaft so deeply that we need to replace the shaft at a surcharge.
