        Great Product!

        I’m really satisfied with the quality and fitment for the price. The only snag in the installation process I had was with the existing holes that were in the windshield were bigger then the ones I needed for the included screws. I grabbed a few slightly bigger screws from my shop and it worked perfectly. The bikini top fit just perfectly in the groove so definitely a 5/5

        Worked perfect to hold my bestop bikini top in place, holes were predrilled due to a soft top being on the Jeep before.

        Good rubber seal kit

        Kit works great, adhesive actually sticks! No instructions with it, wasn’t sure how to use the “tool” to cut out the holes for the bolts. Blade wasn’t sharp enough for the rubber. I used a drill, good to go. Make sure you add the corner rubber pieces for the top!

        It works

        I got this for my bikini top for my 93 and when i went to out it on the screws didn't work, because the screws were to ''skinny". Once I finally got it installed I was driving and the bikini top came loose but i quickly tighten it.

        Works great!

        Works great and very easy to install. All you need is a cordless power drill with 1/8inch drill bit and a Phillips head screwdriver and you're good to go

      What's the difference between this one and the factory? I need one to work with soft top and bikini top

      • The channel is a bit smaller than your factory channel, unfortunately it would not work with the soft top solely the Bikini top.
