        What's the difference between Bestop Safari style bikini top and Smittybuilt bikini top

        I have a 98 TJ with a Bestop Trektop NX Soft Top installed. Will the Bestop Windshield Channel Drill in Style for Bikini Top interfere with the operation of the NX soft top or can I leave the channel installed and put my Soft top on?

        I have a Smittybuilt header bar (Item J16173) will this Bestop Safari work with that header bar?

        • No, this top is only designed to be used with the Bestop windshield channel. You can find that item here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-windshield-channel-tj-5121001.html

        I have a 99 TJ hard top. Do I have to drill a windshield bracket on to fasten this to? If I do, do I have to remove it at end of the season to be able to put hard top back on? The no drill one. How does it fasten? Is there flapping noise?

        • You do not have to drill a windshield bracket for the bikini top if you use the Bestop No-Drill Windshield Channel (J16163). It will fasten with J-Hook brackets mounted to the windshield retainer.  The Windshield Channel will have to be removed to reinstall the hard top.  Here is the link to the Windshield Channel: https://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-windshield-channel-tj-5123801.html.

        Does this Bestop Safari-style strapless bikini top tuck into the door surround channel with plastic tabs like the OEM top?

        • This top is able to be tucked into the door channels if you have them, or hug tight to the roll bars.

            Review from Bestop Safari-Style Header Bikini Top - Black Diamond (03-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ)

            Pain to get on.

            This was a huge wrestling match and ended in sore fingers to try and get the corners of this top to bend into the header. I’m not exactly thrilled with how the corners and front sides look. We did manage to get it one after days of it sitting in the sun to mold into the right shape. It is pretty tight and not too noisy. Good quality material. I question how long the straps will hold up.

            Very nice top for the price

            Do not try to put this on right out of the box. Make sure you let it sit in the sun for about 30-45 minutes to soften up the plastic strip that slides into the windshield channel. Otherwise, this top installs in less than 10 minutes. The instructions are about useless, so just watch the install instructions on YouTube. I find watching the videos a little easier to follow anyways. The quality seems pretty decent, but time will tell as it sees more time in the sun and such.

            Best Bikini Top for Coverage

            Very happy with the coverage of this top compared to my small one. Wish I would have bought this one first. It keeps the direct sun off of the kids in the back seat, but still let’s the breeze in. It’s a pain to install just like any bikini top, would recommend 2 people.

            Great Top!

            Very easy to install. We mostly cruise around with the top down so this is great to keep in back in case of rain. Doesn't replace a full soft or hard top but definitely worth the $60.

            Could Be Better!

            Top looks great but as most customers have mentioned the corners are not easy to keep from popping up. I don’t understand why the Velcro straps are so short. It seems that it would help if they were just an inch longer. Still hoping it will work itself out. The bikini top fit perfectly after about a month and of course with warmer weather.

            More difficult to install than you might think

            I like it now. But installing this thing was hugely frustrating. It is very difficult to get the plastic thing into the windshield channel, especially on the ends where the channel curves downward. Ended up heating the plastic with wife's blow dryer which made it flexible enough to jam in there. Some of the stitching looks as if it might pull out someday.

            Replacement top

            I had my first bestop for almost 18 years! So when I went to replace it finally I had to have the same one. I changed the color from spice to black diamond but otherwise everything is the same. Great customer service on the phone! Installed the top just as it should be. Looks amazing. However when driving down the road above 40 mph it wants to release the sides and flap loudly and excessively. I contacted bestop and they said it needed heat. Not sure what they mean by that. This was not an issue with my previous top. It snapped in and life was great. So we shall see. I am concerned with the “flapping” tearing the fabric. Otherwise I am 100 satisfied and it looks amazing.

            I had to secure it down with paracord and zipties. Passenger side kept flying up, even with additional securing. Get something different.

            Great top and easy to install.

            I purchased this top and the no-drill header together. Installation for both was very quick and no hassle. This top is great for when you are out on the trails and want an unobstructed view of your surroundings (in canyons etc.). It comes off in 5 minutes and reinstalls in 10.

            Not exactly what I wanted

            I have a 2006 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. I expected the top to cover the whole jeep. It barely covers the backseat. The corners do not curve and stay in place. Be sure to let top sit in the sun to heat up, it really does help with installation. I called Extreme Terrain to place my order, so that I could be sure that I was ordering the correct top. I am not certain if that is the way the top should fit or if the salesperson ordered the wrong one. The fabric does seem durable.

            It's a Jeep thing.

            Top looks great, very nice quality. Install was alittle difficult, but that may have been my fault. I went from a hard top to the bikini and I had to order a extra mounting bracket after the fact. Definitely something to keep in mind if you are planning on switching from hard to soft top. But we'll worth it.

            Bestop Safari Bikini Top

            I bought this to replace my Rampage top. The straps ripped on that one after sitting in my garage for 6 months and only being a year old. But this one seems more solid, the nylon is quality and the top itself is very nice. Got rained on and it didn't leak through. Attached to my windshield channel in minutes. I had to remove the padding on my roll bars to install but I've never hit my head on em anyway lol.
