Hey, guys. Today, I'm here with the Bestop Targa Style Bikini Top in Black Diamond, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So everybody loves taking the T-tops off their Wrangler, putting the soft top all the way back to enjoy that open-air driving experience. However, the sun can sometimes become overbearing and be very harmful to you and your skin, as well as to the interior of your Wrangler. This Targa style bikini top will be for the JK owner looking for a high-quality sunshade to offer full sun protection, as well as any light protection for any popup showers that might happen. This is made of a black diamond vinyl material, very similar to the factory soft top. So unlike other mesh materials, this will offer complete coverage. If you were looking for a partial sun to reach the inside of your cab area, Bestop also does offer this exact system in a mesh material, if that's what you were looking for. At the moment, this is at a very reasonable price for what this is, at roughly $75 at the moment. Compared to other vinyl sunshades on the site, this will be one of the only options that does not require a windshield channel but still offers complete coverage all the way around. This will work with both the two-door and the four-door models. And you can keep this installed all of the time, while putting the T-tops back on or putting your soft top all the way back up so you really never have to uninstall this.Bestop is also very well known for their high-quality products and this one can attest to that. And this will also come with a limited lifetime warranty to keep a little bit of peace of mind. Install is very easy at one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You will need a couple of hand tools but it's nothing you can't get done in your driveway in about a half an hour. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for this install were a quarter-inch drive ratchet, a quarter-inch drive small extension, a T25 Torx bit, and a 10-millimeter socket. So after your T-tops are removed or your soft top is pushed all the way back, we're gonna start by installing this bracket in between the Footman loop and the windshield. So you will need a T25 Torx bit and a ratchet to get your Torx bolts out and sandwich this in between. So once that's out, we can reinstall this with the button facing out. You can do the same thing on the other side. So I did put a small extension on there to make my life a little bit easier since you do have this trim piece so it is a little bit tucked away. So now we can attach one of our straps to our roll bar. We will have to remove the 10-millimeter bolt here and sandwich this in between. So now we can do the same thing with our buckle attachment and attach it right to the center of the roll bar, right next to where we took out our hard top tie down. So I am using a 10-millimeter socket to remove that bolt and we can reinstall that. We can do the same thing on the other side.So our next step is to peel back the adhesive on our foam strip and attach it to the top of our roll bar right here. Just make sure it's not interfering here, which looks like we're in the clear. So, like I mentioned before, this is made of a black diamond vinyl material so it's a little bit heavier weight than a mesh material that you may be seeing on the site. This is gonna be a very similar if not the same material to your fabric soft top. This is also gonna be UV treated so it's gonna resist any fading from sitting out in the sun. So now we can throw this on our Wrangler. So in order to keep the top in place while we attach the back, I would attach this to the windshield with the brackets that we installed, so you can just button those in place. For the middle strap here, it is just gonna be a Velcro piece. We didn't have to attach a bracket to this Footman loop so we can just wrap that around and secure that down and move over to the other side. So after we're done attaching the front, we can work our way down the line and attach our Velcro straps. So if you have a soft top and you have door surrounds, you can hook the Velcro strap through the door surround, pull it through, and Velcro it on top. If you have a hard top like we do, we're utilizing the metal hooks. All you have to do is thread the Velcro through, you are gonna hook this into where your door surround would attach, and then you can pull that through and Velcro that on top. So, personally, I really like this attachment method. It keeps the bikini top very flat and prevents it from flapping around compared to other options which will have bungee cords and which will attach all the way around the roll bar, which can kind of bunch up and make the bikini top look a little funky. But this is gonna really keep it tight and look very clean. So now, on the back one here, if you do have fabric covering up the hole in your roll bar, you can either poke a hole in your fabric or it will still technically attach so you can just press up against it and the pressure will actually keep it in place. If you have a door surround, this may be easier. But there will actually be a hole back here. So while we're back here, we can feed this back portion through to the other side of our roll bar. Now we can do the same thing on the other side. So after our front straps are attached, we can attach our back straps. You will have to loop this through and then down behind, then you can tighten that down. Then you can move to this one. What I do like about this one is that you can unbuckle it and do it that way. So after you're all finished attaching everything, you can go back and adjust all your straps and make sure that your bikini top is tight. What I really do like about this is that it's very clean, it sits very flat, and it actually covers the whole area. So other options that will come with bungee cords or straps, kind of similar to this, they won't cover the whole area, the corners will still be open and still let that harmful sunlight through. But with this, it will cover all of those corners. So even though this doesn't have a windshield channel to seal the top, it does keep the integrity with that bar there. And if you're looking to put your soft top or your hard top back on and keep this still installed, you definitely can. So I will show you how to do that in just a minute but all you have to do is unbutton the two Footman loop buttons and then you can fold it back. So you can reattach your soft top or your T-tops back onto those Footman loops. So, like I mentioned, all you have to do is unbutton that. So once those are unbuttoned, you can fold that back. You can fold that back, button that into place, and you'll be able to reinstall your top and keep this on however long you want. So that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install on the Bestop Targa Style Bikini Top in Black Diamond, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.
