Right what I needed
Good materials with the right price! I was looking for a top that can be easily installed and uninstalled (as I live in a tropical area with sudden storms) and still feeling a “freedom” sensation.Helpful (1)

Well built, quality materials. Install it on a hot day after it has sat in the sun for a bit. I have a cage kit on my JK and the back of the top fits nicely over the additional rear loop.Helpful (1)

Bikini Top Unlimited
Arrived within a few days. Sturdy material, easy installation which I did myself. I had read reviews and was concerned about how well it would stay on as well as noise. I am pleasantly surprised. Rarely needs tightened up, and noise isn’t a factor unless I have all doors off, and then it’s minimal. Very happy customer!Helpful (1)

A little loose in the back
I really want to like this top. I used it today the the first time. The South Ga. heat made it stretch a lot it got loose and I stopped to tighten it three times.Helpful (1)

It installed easily, and looks okay. The issue is that the back of the top doesn’t stay tight. After a couple days it will begin flapping in the wind. I wish it would have maintained a firm fit for longer.Helpful (1)

Great top option!
This is a great safari top that fit my 2013 JK perfectly. The design minimizes wind buffeting and provides great shade and decent weather protection while still giving an open air feel. I run it with half doors. When the weather is bad I drop in Mopar soft door widows and the front seat is completely weatherproof. The straps do loosen up slightly over time, but a quick tug snugs everything up easily.Helpful (1)
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?
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
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?
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.
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!
The Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel - Cable Style will install utilizing both cable springs and straps. You can use an aftermarket door surround, but this may alter how water resistant it is.
Is this product available for order without the windshield channel? I already own a header that I use with another Bestop bikini top.
Yes, you can purchase this top without a windshield channel here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-header-bikini-top-jk-5258335.html.
I have a 2018 2 door Jeep wrangler JL. I was wondering if this top will fit my car?
This will not fit JL models.
The difference between the two Bestop Safari Bikini tops is that J20410 ( MPN# 52584) requires a windshield channel, while J20825 (MPN# 52594) will have the channel incorporated already.
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.
Hello, this is for the Bikini Top only. You can find the Duster Deck Cover here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-duster-deck-cover-w-jk-9003335.html and the windjammer here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/bestop-windjammer-jk-8003135.html
The Bestop Safari Bikini Top w/ Windshield Channel, Cable Style, Black Diamond (10-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door) requires factory door surrounds for proper fitment. The door surrounds are found if you have a factory soft top they are the piece that goes around the doors to allow the doors to properly seal shut.
Simple installation for anyone.
