      Specs. The Windshield Channel by Rugged Ridge mounts along the top of your Jeep Wrangler's windshield frame to give you an attachment point for tops and briefs. This particular channel is made out of aluminum, which is lightweight, tough, and is immune to rust. The two pieces included are both coated in a black finish, which helps them blend in with the Jeep's overall look, and adds extra protection as well beyond that already offered by the aluminum. The materials are high grade for rugged road and outdoor use.

      Construction. Rugged Ridge's Windshield Channel is engineered for quick and efficient fitment to the top of the Jeep windshield. However, some minor drilling is needed for correct installation. The channel consists of left and right pieces and comes with all necessary hardware. Protected by a 5 year limited warranty, this component helps with the installation of summer briefs, roll bar tops, and other toppers.

      Application. Fits 1997 - 2002 Wrangler TJ models.

        Windshield Channel Flop

        I am not impressed with the inside the windshield channel for this top. it causes the top to buckle at the windshield and creates a bad look from outside of the front of the vehicle. I have ordered a new soft top with the true windshield channel and I can't wait to get it on the jeep for a better look.

        I installed this on my 1997 jeep tj with a roll cage cover, that I also bought from extreme terrain, and it worked out verry well.
