Can just the piping be replaced around the outside edge of the top, or does the entire top need to be replaced? I put mine down in the garage yesterday and where it bends, it split open the piping...grrrrr..... WickedMike, I'm getting closer to be just a Dodge owner!!

No, the canvas is in showroom shape. I treat it 3-4 times a year with 303. When I bought the car, the trunk well had rub marks from the top. So that piping was rubbing on the truck. I put really slippery tape in there to keep the wear to a minimum. But, it apparently decided that it was time to just split.

We had the same issue with the piping separating from the top due to "rubbing" in the trunk. We were able to find a sail maker who, with waxed thread and a sail maker's palm, was able to whip-stitch the piping and top together. It's not a perfect fix, but he only charged me $25...much less expensive than a new top.
