            1 1998 Wrangler - jerryc

            Not right for my jeep

            I bought this product to ( hopefully) give me more of a good look and for my new top. First I installed it on my jeep and the total piece pointed up in the air and wouldn't seal correctly so I put my new bikini top on it thinking maybe something would work after the install the bikini would not stay where it was supposed to plus the big jap from the bar. I tried for 3 days to get it to work properly to no avail and ended up going down the road with it and it tore a hole in the new top I had bought to go with it. So I decided that this was not for me any longer. So I reinstalled my old top and will not by anything like this again. I'm done spending my money of something that doesn't work right.

            Good Product

            Didn’t realize this was needed when I bought my RR bowless top, had to use a ratchet strap for a month until I got this in. Easy install. Really solid product.

            4 2003 Rubicon - Jeffrey Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

            windshield channel leaks air

            It fit in to place good but seems to let air in between the window frame and the channel while driving. It's lacking a seal towards the middle of the channel to keep air from flowing through. I had to add a foam stripping to help seal it from air leaking through while driving.

            As advertised

            Good fit, so far so good. Would have been nice if directions described how tight to make it. I.e. a torque setting. Made it "snug" and worked fine.

            Simple no drill installation and can be used with several different tops

            This windshield channel was the absolute easiest add on I have ever done. It is built and painted to look like an original part of the vehicle and can be used with several different tops.
