    Can I buy the J-Hooks only for this No-Drill Windshield Channel? the previous owner of my Jeep stripped out the threads making them unusable.

      Jeep named Lucille

      No additional modifications were necessary. The windshield channel bolted on without a hitch and the top was easy to slide into place. The straps are well placed and fabric stretches tight. No flapping or noise. Good value for a summer time top.

      Outstanding Product

      I'm always concerned about ordering products off line. My windshield channel and top went on "EXTREMELY" easy and the fit was perfect. I would highly recommend Extreme Terrain to meet all of your customers off road needs.

      Besttop Wind channel

      The wind channel fits perfect on my 03 TJ and installation is very simple. I had no issues installing this by myself. I have zero complaints about this product. Everything is well made on it and it doesn't feel cheap at all.

      windshield header

      I must say, I was freaking out trying to find this piece. I called one company that would remain nameless. They had me on hold for 10 minutes and than hung up on me. I than called extreme, the man Mike was very polite and understanding. Since I had not owned a jeep in like ten years. He helped me a great deal. I ordered the par. the part was here in three days installed in less than 10 minutes. Well worth the buck and this company has now earned all my business. the item went in place with very little effort. It is perfect fit. the bolts that came with the bar worked perfect. Could not have done it easier! Thanks Howard
