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!!!!Helpful (4)

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.Helpful (4)

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.Helpful (4)

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.Helpful (4)

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 perfectlyHelpful (4)

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.Helpful (5)

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.Helpful (5)

Rugged Ridge Header
It's fine. Works. Kind of time consuming to mount. Two people helps a lot.Helpful (6)
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.
