    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hi. I'm Dave for extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation video for our Bestop safari top with windshield channel included. It's going to fit JKs, 2010 and up, and it's gonna be made specifically for the 4-door JKs. I do give this a one out of three wrenches on our installation rating guide. You're gonna need some simple hand tools, no drilling, which is nice, and you should be complete in less than 25 minutes. And we'll have that install for you, coming up. If you've been looking for a solution to have the top-down feel but still having coverage from either light rain or mostly the sun, a safari top is a great solution. And since this one is specifically made for a four-seater, that's gonna be nice that you, the passenger, and your riders in the back of the cabin are going to remain comfortable, as well, and also still experience that open-air effect. The first thing that I hope that you have noticed about this particular safari top from Bestop is the fact that the windshield channel is included. It's steel construction and it's a part of what you're going to get in the box. It is made of the same top-quality material that you would expect out of Bestop. It's gonna be mildew resistant. It's gonna have that good give to it so it's gonna be easy to put on and off. And, let's face it, with any soft top or even a bikini top, the more you get used to kind of teaching yourself how to put it on and take it off, the easier it gets over time. Like I said at the beginning of the video, I give this installation a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Now, you don't have to do any drilling, but you are going to have to use some hand tools and a power screwdriver if you like. It should take less than 25 minutes to be able to get your top on, and that's one of the reasons it garnered the one out of three wrenches. The first thing that you'll want to do is, obviously, take the soft top that you have presently installed and just fold it away. Now, you wanna remove the sun visors, or at least get them out of the way, and that's where you're gonna see, and just double-check, that the wind channel that you have is gonna fit into place, and you wanna make sure that it lies perfectly flat. And then, you want to be able to lay the rest of the safari top across the cabin of your Wrangler. The next step that you're gonna do is, right around the windshield channel, is that you're basically gonna look for the hook that's there. And then, you're gonna do some simple removal of screws that are already there and putting in a couple of ledges that we have included with the kit. That's what the windshield channel is eventually going to be secured by. The next thing that you'll wanna do is to be able to start adding your straps into place. The nice thing about these straps is that you're first gonna start, with most of them, with snaps. And then, you're going to be able to make an adjustment to ensure that you have a nice tension on your safari top so that it doesn't flap if you're doing any sort of highway driving or doing faster than off-roading. It's a nice way of ensuring that it's going to stay in place for you. After putting your straps in place, you're going to have a cable that you're going to be able to use and secure, which is going to give it some extra stability to keep that flapping down to a minimum. If you've been doing a little price comparison out there, you know that Bestop is known as one of the premium soft top makers for aftermarket gears for Wranglers, and one of the things that you need to keep in mind with this particular soft top if you're thinking about investing in it is the fact that it does have the windshield channel included. In my opinion, that is a nice thing to have, so that when you get it home and you open the box, that everything you need, along with detailed instructions, will be included. So, there's nothing else that you have to buy, and let's face it, some of the other items that are out there, you may get the top home and not realize that you would have needed that windshield channel. Here, again, as long as you have a rig that's 2010 and up, JK, and 4-door, you're gonna be set and ready to go. So, if you've been looking for a solution to those kind of inclement weather days, let's face it, when the season changes, sometimes you may keep having day after day of afternoon rain showers, or you may have some days where the sun is just beating down, but you hate the idea of constantly putting your factory soft top up and down, over and over again, or multiple times throughout the day, a safari top is a really nice solution because it'll keep that direct sunlight right off of you, or it'll keep any light rain that you might incur, but at the same time, still give you that nice open-air feeling. And since this is for the four-passenger JK, it's gonna be nice to be able to offer that same convenience for everybody who may be riding along with you. I'm Dave, and that is my review of the Bestop safari top, serving JKs, 2010 and up, for the 4-door version, and you can check it out on extremeterrain.com.

    I have a 2017 Black Unlimited Hardtop. I keep reading that this product is designed to work with the soft top door surrounds..? Will this work with my jeep or will I need to purchase additional hardware?

    Ove

    • The Bestop Safari Bikini Top is designed to work with OEM door surrounds. The top will work without door surrounds, however, it would not have the tightest fit. Since you currently have a hardtop you will need the door surrounds to ensure a tight seal.

      XTJosh

    Does this top attach the factory soft top door surrounds and create a "watertight" seal? Just like the OEM Soft top? I see lots of comments that you require the OEM Surrounds but I am not sure why, it seems that the top attaches to the roll bars. If it does I think this would be a great solution to be able to leave on all summer!

    TJPowell

    in the Customer Photos 2 jeeps have no door surround so you can use it with or with out surround? thanks

    • The Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel would require door surrounds for proper fitment. Using this item without the door surrounds, would resort in drooping and loose fitment.

    • The Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel is designed to be used with the OEM door surrounds. Without these, the top will not achieve the correct tension.

    I have a 2017 Wrangler (4-Door) with a hard top. I am looking for something to use in the summer months (mainly May to September) that will allow me to remove easily and put back on in the event of rain. Essentially I would like to store my hard top away for those 5 months and strictly use this bikini top. Will I have to purchase anything else since I only have the hard top (meaning anything for the doors)? And will this shield the inside of my JK in the event of a HEAVY rain storm? If not, can you recommend something else that will?

    Ambs

    • Hello, This black diamond Bestop Cable Style Safari Bikini Top would be a great fit for the summer months. You don't need any additional hardware, its a extremely simple process to take on and off, and it will provide great protection from that harsh summer sun. This being said, when looking at a bikini top, there really is not a way to keep the interior dry from heavy rain (especially at speed) . This would definitely help out, but rain would still come in through the sides of the roll bar where the top does not cover. I would highly recommend a Barricade frameless 2-in-1 Soft Top. With a fully enclosed design that quickly converts from a full top to a Savannah top you get the best of both worlds. Taking you from ceiling to sky in seconds and eliminating the need for the bulky OE soft top frame. The Barricade frameless 2-in-1 Soft Top can be found right here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-frameless-2-in-1-soft-top-black-diamond-0717jk4door.html

    the picture shows a cover over the cargo area, the top and enclosed behind the cab area but i don't see any mention of it in the description. Is this just for the top only? I like the cover for the cargo area and the back cover behind the cab area.

      Review from Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel - Cable Style - Black Diamond (10-18 Wrangler JK 2 Door)

      Great Bikini top

      I read all the reviews prior to buying this and most were bad. I read about the flapping issues and after driving for a few days I had no flapping issues at all until today hahaha. The right rear strap had come loose and it flapped like crazy, up and down over and over and was really loud, but when I got home I re-tightened them using pliers to insure a tight fit but unfortunately this is just one of the things I have to deal with with this top. I carry needle-nose pliers with me for this. Today I had to drive through 2 downpours and there was leaking on the left side onto my left leg and arm, and the left side of the dashboard but that was the only leaking so far. Other than that, I like the top and I'm happy with it. I use it with another brand's clearview windstopper and tonno cover.

      Top Does The Job

      Top does what it is intended to do, however it is not nearly as tight fitting as I had hoped. It could use a couple of straps/cables going down the length in the center to tighten

      Excellent quality, just enough coverage

      If you're looking to stay 100 dry inside your jeep, this is the wrong top to have on your jeep. That said if you want a very airy feeling while staying 99 dry even in very heavy downpours, this top does an excellent job of doing that. The top also does a good job of keeping the inside temperature inside... mostly. The straps that connect to the frame, unfortunately, are simple tension locks and aren't buckles/clips, so every time you install/remove the top you're re-threading the straps. A bit of an unfortunate oversight, but, easily fixable with a sewing machine. Overall, a well made top. Would buy again.

      Just what I was looking for

      It is a perfect option for an easy way to get some shade and don't get all the rain on your head. I was able to store it underneath the back seat. Once you figure out how it works and you leave the straps on, doesn't take more than 10 minutes to put it on and not even 5 to take it off.

      Go (hard) topless!

      Great alternative here in Florida to enjoy open air driving regularly. Great fit although directions on sound bar tie downs could be more clear. Took just an extra minute to figure it out. Have had it several weeks now. Poured today in Central Florida. Hard the hard top doors on and stayed totally dry even without the soft top inserts which I don't own. Great quality item that not only blocks sun but helps keep the rain out.

      Review from Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel - Cable Style - Black Diamond (10-18 Wrangler JK 2 Door)

      Poor fit, hastle to use, but does keep rain out.

      I bought this top wanting a bikini top that works with the door channels to keep rain out. It does do this very well, I have no issues with rain leaking into the front seats like I do any other bikini top, HOWEVER, the top does not fit well at all. It is a solid inch too narrow at all points. It does not wrap around the door channels fully, it slips off constantly and getting as tight as possible starts an endless war between which side gets the most material to actually go over the channel. The back section that goes down the sport bar is even worse. The rollbars have a padding that isn't the most stable points, so the top constantly, and I mean CONSTANTLY comes loose and slips down between the sport bars. I am having to re-adjust the top at every other stop so it doesn't slip off the bars and start flapping violently in the wind. Its getting tiring to do this constantly and once again, the top itself is not wide enough to wrap around the entire bar and keep from sliding away, by a solid inch or more. I tightened the top so tight, it started to bend the tie downs, and it still poses a problem. I've emailed Bestop about this issue and received no response what so ever (this was over a year ago), and as far as I know, this problem has not been addressed. This is the second top I've gotten from Bestop with fitment problems (first was a very badly fitting replacement top for a 95 YJ).
