        Great Buy!

        So easy to put on and remove for the days you want to go topless! Tested the top out on our beach trip. It held up great at high speeds (80 ) and kept us dry in the middle of heavy summer rain storms.

        Great Safari Too

        This is a quality safari bikini top. We purchased it fir our daughters Jeep for the summer. It looks great, creates needed shade and the wind sound is minimal. Highly recommend.

        Satisfied yet again

        The quality and fit of BESTOP products is second to none. I had purchased other, less expensive brands in the past and soon found they were sub-optimal. This Bimini top fits perfectly, looks fantastic, and was a breeze to put on. If you are looking for a Bimini top for your Jeep, buy this one, you will not be sorry

        Modify you must

        it is very obvious a person that does not own a jeep designed this top and did not test drive it. attachment to header was as expected. plastic strap attachments had to change out with metal connectors. 1st test drive 6 miles the trailing edge was flapping uncontrollably in the wind. On the way back to the house I had to pull over due to the trailing edge was flapping so bad. Fix I placed an oak plank across the role bars and cut to fit. attached the trailing edge to the edge of the plank by folding over edge of wood and placing 12 screws with washers thru the fabric. Replaced plastic attachments with metal and installed. Test drive was perfect. Half the product was great the back half was a pain in the jeep.

        Great top for the money

        I wish the straps were better though, they are cheap nylon and withing the first year at least one had broken, I have had the top for over four years and it is still in perfect shape. The straps are either trash or nearly trash at this point. I wish they made the straps as well as the top because it would last forever. Usually the top is on for 7-10 months a year and like I said it is holding up exceptionally. I am surprised that in the videos it does not mention re-tightening after being in the sun for a while to minimize flapping.

        Great Value w/ Minor Issues

        The top is extremely easy to install and looks great. The only mark against is the rear hooks. The quality there is lacking and kept me from giving 5 stars. Replace with carabiners and you will be good to go. Initially I had major flapping above 60 mph. Re-installed the hooks in the furthest hole back and tightened. No issues since. Good value for a great look.

        Great top

        This top was exactly what I wanted. The install was easy, and it keeps the rain off of the interior during the summer months.

        Bestop top

        Top is a good fit easy to install and take down is quick also. Changed out plastic clips with alum carabiners because top would not stay tight with the plastic clips.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      An earlier question asked if door surrounds are required and was answered no. Is there a negative though if you do not add door surrounds or does it work equally well with or without?

      • The Bestop Header Safari Bikini Top, Black (10-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) will work with or without door surrounds because all the door surrounds do are create a seal around the door to keep moisture out. The bikini top will work great with or without the door surrounds.

      Are door surrounds recommended if your using it on 2016 Wrangler JK 2dr purchased w/ a factory freedom top?

      • Hello, the Bestop Header Safari Bikini Top, Black (10-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) does not require door surrounds to be installed, but it does require the Bestop Windshield Channel (07-17 Wrangler JK) that you can find on our website here:

      Helpful (2)

      Does the windshield channel need to attach to the top when the windshield channel is not on the Jeep? What I'd like to do is keep the windshield channel attached to the Jeep, and then quickly attach the top to the windshield channel when needed, without detaching the channel from the Jeep.

      • You can leave the header installed even without the top being installed. It does not need to be removed with the top.

      Will this keep the rain out?

      • Hello, the Bestop Header Safari Bikini, Black (10-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) is water resistant, but please take in consideration that this Bikini top does not seal as regular Soft Top, so under very high torrential rain you may witness some drops get in.

      Helpful (1)

      I have installed my bikini top, and am wondering what the center straps with clips are for? There is a flap with two straps on it with hooks of some sort. Can you clarify. They are not mentioned as a step in the directions.

      • I believe you are referring to the side tension straps that mount to the beltrail, which would be step 6 in the install guide for the Bestop Safari-Style Header Bikini Top.
