      Review & Installation Video

      Ryan: The Bestop Upper Door Sliders for a factory soft top are for those of you that have been 1997 to 2006 TJ that has a soft top and also has half doors installed on it that are looking for something that's going to be a little bit easier to open and close than those soft upper doors. These are going to install very easily, one out of three wrenches. They really just drop into place on top of your doors and these are going to add a ton of functionality to your TJ. We're gonna show you how to get these installed in just a second. So if you have a set of factory soft upper doors on your Jeep, you know that in order to open them up, you need to unzip them, which isn't the easiest thing to do while you're driving. If you're coming up to a toll booth, it can be a little bit of a battle. And when they are folded down, they're kind of in the way of your elbow, so not a great solution, at least in my opinion if you're somebody who wants to be able to open and close that soft upper and not just have to be completely stopped, have the door open and you remove the soft upper. So this is going to give you the ability to open and close that window. Of course, the soft uppers as well with the zippers and everything flexing and moving can eventually start to wear out, break down when they start to get old, the windows themselves being plastic can get scratched like the other three plastic windows in your Jeep. There are just a lot of reasons to want something like this installed on your half doors. This is going to give you essentially a soft door here and all the way around. This is going to be a factory black diamond material but it replaces that plastic window with two pieces of sliding glass, so these are going to have latches built into them, they can be latched all the way closed. Both of them. They're gonna seal up really tight with some weatherstripping all the way around here. So perfect seal, almost like you have full doors on the Jeep. Then if you need to open it up to get some air in when you're coming up to a toll booth, whatever it might be, it's very easy, these are just a spring-loaded latch here. You just push on it and pull the glass, you can either pull that front section back or pull the back section forward to open them up. Of course, you are going to get a kit here that's going to include both sides of your Jeep. So this is a piece that is going at a ton of functionality to your Jeep. I think they look better, they definitely work better, they're gonna seal up tighter. There aren't a lot of reasons that you wouldn't want these if you had a set of half doors on your Jeep, at least in my opinion, except the cost. These are from Bestop, they're in incredibly high-quality option for you when it comes to sliding upper doors for your TJ. But because of the quality you're getting, you're gonna pay a premium price. These are going to come in at right around $600 for the pair. If you have the budget for it, this is going to be the best option out there for you. If you don't, certainly there are some less expensive options out there that aren't going to wear as well or seal up quite as tight because the weatherstripping or look as good or whatever it might be, and those are gonna be less expensive sources out there. But if you're looking for what, in my opinion, is the best choice for you, this is going to be it and the price, honestly, is it worth the additional quality that you're going to get. So like I said, these are going to install incredibly easily onto your Jeep, one out of three wrenches, let's show you how to do it. Man: All right, let's get our factory soft top uppers out of the way here. Just gonna open up the door here, grab our window, lift straight up. Now we're going to bring in our new hard upper sliders. Close it up. Hey, guys, that's gonna wrap up my install of the Bestop Upper Door Sliders for your factory soft top TJ. And for all things Wrangler keep it here at

        Best product ever purchased. Looks great! You can now really lock up your soft top and have glass window that just pop out like normal. Every Jeep owner that sees these window wants them! Quieter ride and no more Jeep soft top flaps in the front.

        Slider Windows

        Best thing I've purchased for the jeep thus far. They're really great and cuts down the road noise a ton. I haven't had to worry about leaks or anything like that and they slide in and out of the lower doors just like the rubber counterparts. Oh and it makes it super easy to see and seems to open up the cabin to more sunlight. I keep joking with my friends that it's the best $600 I've ever spent but I meant that fully. 10/10, fully recommend.

        Couldn’t be more pleased with these upper door sliders! Easy to install. Should have made this upgrade sooner!! High quality product offering a more quiet ride and better security.

        Good Doors, not so good seals

        These slider doors are overall alright. The sliders work great, install is super easy, looks good. However, the seals made the door not fit correctly and bulge outside the door jam. I do have a hardtop but the retailer said it would fit. Some modifications had to be made to get a good seal, but overall works well.

        New outlook

        I have a 2003 wrangler with the original top and windows. The door window zippers were wearing out and would jamb. I searched for replacements and came across the door sliders. I checked around and found Extreme Terrain had the best price. I received them after a few days. It took longer to open the box than to install them. They fit great, look great and work like a champ. I find the wind noise is less than the curtains too.

      Just purchased a 2003 Rubicon. It has the slider on the passenger side, but zip window on the driver. Do you sell only the driver side or must be purchased in pairs?

      • We only offer these in pairs, but I'd contact Bestop directly, they may offer them individually.

      I have a 2001 TJ with a Smitty built soft top at least the driver side door window is stamped with that. Will these door sliders fit?

      Will these upper door sliders fit with a factory hard top?

      • Unfortunately, these will not. They are specific to the factory soft top only.

      Helpful (0)

      Will it work with *any* soft top? (Or do i need to have a 'Best Top' brand top installed, for full a seal on the door surround.)

      • Unfortunately, these upper doors are designed specifically for the factory soft top curve at the top. Some aftermarket soft tops will have a different curve there, which is why this will not work with all soft tops.

      Do both sections of the window slide to open?
