    If I install this along with the Rugged Ridge Mesh Summer Island Topper, Black (10-17 Wrangler JK 2 Door) can I still use the soft top withour removing the mesh topper and header?

    • Unfortunately, the Soft top and the Rugged Ridge Mesh Summer Island Topper will use different windshield headers so they would not be able to be mounted at the same time. You would need to remove the Mesh Top header to utilize the soft top.

    I have a 2016 Wrangler Willys, It is a 2 door hard hard top. I want a bikini cover to put on after taking the hard top off, I ordered an Island mesh but it is for a soft top, Didn't realize that when ordering. So I need to return it and get a cover that will fit a hard top. Could you please let me know what I need to order to make this a complete fit.

    • Hello, if you would like a top that will remain in its place even after installing the Hard Top, you would need something like the Barricade FullShade Top (07-17 Wrangler JK 2-Door) which you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-fullshade-top-jk-J101176.html This is a Shade Top, and that is the only type of top you will be able to install to remain under a Hard Top.

    how do I know if I already have this roll bar windshield header?

    • The Rugged Ridge Summer Brief/Roll Bar Windshield Header (07-17 Wrangler JK) would be over your windshield channel. This header uses snaps, when looking at your channel it would have holes for the snaps toward the cabin area.

      Horrible

      The retainer arms to hold the bar down, don’t even hold it! It’s missing the j-hooks as the instructions say! Also you can’t even drive it without them because it flies off and hit me in the head!!!!

      Soft Top Bar

      It does not fit my soft top very well. It isn't flush to the jeep and I can not snap down half of the snaps.

      Poorly designed

      The Rugged Ridge Summer Brief / Roll BAr Windshield Header was a complete disappointment. The hardware does not secure the header to the jeep. The header detaches while driving. The rivets holding the male snaps to the header are too long preventing the cover from attaching. I will have to fabricate parts to make it usable at all. All in all a waste of money.

      Does not fit flush to my windshield frame.

      I have a 2015 Wrangler JK and the windshield header does not match the contour of the windshield frame. There are "gaps" in the fit on each end of the header where it does not lay flush. Also, the windshield frame at the top appears to be straight, but the header has a bow to it. I thought they sent me the wrong product. I called and they confirmed it was the correct model number. I ordered another just to double check they did not send they wrong header in the packaging and I found the same problem.

      The header was hard to install. It should have a hook on the bottom bracket to hook it to the d ring area. It will slide back if not set perfectly

      Snaps/Shape not effective

      The bar is slightly bowed so it only comes flush with the rubber right in the middle of the windshield, making it easy for wind to pull it off on the highway. Snap also very difficult to attach top to bar. Lastly, the connection to the top with screw down clamps not very effective if you plan on using this top as a regular summer top, on the high way it gets pulled off the top at moderate speed.

      Missing Parts then leaking

      The product was sent missing the gaskets, and when they were finally sent, the product allowed leaking. I was so frustrated with the experience I ended up just putting my hardtop back on.

      Not good fit

      Snaps on header did not match with snaps on top. Way off. I had to go purchase more snaps and drill new holes to add snaps in correct placement with top. Also the header did not match curve with windshield area where it is to fit. Has gap and not best hold on inside. Broke loose first time I went on highway at 60. Only use it and top up to 40mph off road. Bad fit not happy.

      Product is defective

      Unfortunately, I received three defective headers. After speaking to someone in Rugged Ridge's owner company they determined that a manufacturers defect made headers with a bow in them that will not line up with the windshield of the jeeps. Thankfully, Extreme Terrain kept working with us and the returns were easy enough and they paid the shipping. Sadly, I'm still without a summer top and will have to look at other brands.

      Needs to settle in?

      The Island Top snapped onto header piece with no issue. Attaching the header to the windshield mounts posed some challenges and left the outer edges up about 3/8". I'm able to squeeze them into place, but the supports seem to lack the ability to hold them. It's been on for just under two weeks, so I'm hopeful once the top stretches a bit the metal will relax into place.

      Rugged Ridge Summer Brief/Roll Bar

      I am displeased with the quality. The casting that are used for the summer brief snaps were not good, and some of the snaps would not fasten. The alignment could have also been better.

      Very poor quality

      The instructions were vague and the few pictures were low quality and no color. once I finally figured out how to put the thing on. It's not secure. It slowely comes off. You have to constantly re-tighten the header just so it doesn't come off while you are driving. It also has scratched up the paint on top of the wind shield bracket. If I knew it was so bad and unreliable, I would have never ordered it. The fit is also off. where the brackets meet the windshield is a little too wide so it won't sit securely.
