    This mini build Extended Brief Top in Black Diamond is for those of you that have a 1997 to 2006 TJ and are looking for a Safari style top to add on to your Jeep. This is going to give you an open-air experience by not having any of the three windows or that rear section of the top that attaches to the tub, giving you a very open feel, but still keeping the direct sun and the rain off of you when you're in the Jeep.Whether you're running with or without doors, this top is going to wrap around these sport cage upfront above the two doors, so it is going to keep you pretty dry on the inside of the Jeep. This is going to be, of course, more protective than a mesh top would be. This is going to do a much better job keeping the moisture out and it's gonna block 100% of the sun instead of a mesh top load that would only block part of it.Now this is the Extended Brief Top, so this is going to go from the windshield channel all the way to the back of the Jeep. This is going to cover both the front and the rear seat passengers in your TJ. There are, of course, shorter tops like this that will just cover the front seat passengers if that's something you're interested in.Now there are a couple different versions of these out there from a couple of different companies. There are some that are more expensive than this. I think this one's pretty appropriately priced for what you're getting. You are going to get a high quality piece. It's gonna stay nice and tight on the Jeep, so it's not going to flap around. It's gonna look good. It's gonna hold up well. And I think it's pretty affordable.This top is made of the same high quality Black Diamond material as your factory top, so it is going to match your interior and exterior of your Jeep very well. It's going to come with all of the straps, VELCROs and buckles that is necessary, already attached to it, so it's going to stay nice and tight, and it's not going to flap on the Jeep, which is one of the big complaints that people have with this style of top.You're going to be able to attach this again right around the sport cage upfront keeping it nice and tight. It has these additional straps upfront to keep any water from pooling on top of the top. Now, one thing that is important to note about this top, as well as a lot of the other ones on the market, is that this does require a windshield header bar. So that's something you're going to have to purchase separately, and you're going to need in order to install this onto your Jeep. So you do have to figure that into the cost of installing a top like this.So as far as the install goes, I'm gonna give this a one out of three wrenches. You should be able to get this installed on your Jeep in half an hour or less. And every time you install it and uninstall it, you're just going to get that much quicker. Now, the first step is going to be installing the windshield header bar on to your top, of course, after removing your hard top or soft top. That header bar will attach right to the top of your factory windshield frame.Then you'll work your way from the front to the back attaching all the straps and VELCRO pieces to make sure that this is nice and tight. Now, the first go-around, you can leave most of the straps a little bit loose, just get them in position, and then again working from the front to the back, tighten everything down. That way you're not gonna have any wrinkles and you're gonna make sure that everything fits as it should.This top comes in at just $70, which I do think is a pretty good deal. It's gonna be a little bit less expensive than some of the other ones on the market. Now some of be more expensive Safari style tops will have some additional features, like maybe built-in zippered pockets, but if you're not interested in those additional features, this is going to be a good way to still get a quality top that will save you a few dollars.Now, it is very important to remember, as I mentioned before, that you need to figure the price of that windshield header into running a top like this if you don't already have one. So if you're looking for a Safari style top for your TJ, I definitely recommend taking a look at this one from Smittybilt and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Is there something I should have bought to go with this top to extent it from roll bar to over the door tops ?

    • Installation of the top will require the Smittybilt Windshield Header. https://www.extremeterrain.com/smittybilt-windshield-tj-yj-90104.html

    Does the top use plastic or metal strap hardware? Looking to upgrade from the cheap plastic hardware that breaks when tightening.

    Mark

    • This top would use the J-clips included in the kit for the installation as well as the windshield header. The J-clips would be the same material as the factory material and the windshield header would be more durable and made of steel construction.

      worse since the last one I bought 6 years ago

      the velcro straps on the roll bars do not accommodate padding on the roll bar and they have removed the continuous strip in favor of three smaller sections that love to disconnect when traveling down the highway at 75 mph. I also love how the plastic connectors on the straps will break after spending time in the sun (why I ordered another one) and putting pressure to tighten them to help with the first problem. I also appreciate how they have not come up with a better way to prevent the top from flapping in the back which adds to the first problem like adding a sold metal bar along the back and by adding metal connectors instead of plastic clips. Once again the "upgrades" are so much better than the old version. Value engineering of old designs leads to awesome results!!! Get the engineers back into the design to build something that will last more than one season

      Great for the price!

      I bought the top and the windshield header and installed them today. The fit is pretty good and the instructions are pretty easy to understand. We could not figure out how to get the velcro wrap part above the doors to hook right. It seemed like they were not long enough, but maybe that was because of the roll bar padding that I have on them. It took about 30 minutes to install. It looks really good and does what I wanted, which was keep the sun/rain off me and my passengers. Took the Wranger out for a cruise around the lake the first day and we got rained and hailed on. Everyone stayed fairly dry and the top held up. Water did pool a little bit on the top when we stopped for a bit, but that might be because we didn't get the side velcro above the door to stay. The only downfall I can see is the part the straps run though to make it taught are plastic, the part that hooks to the tub in the back are metal and will hold up.

      Exactly what I wanted

      The Smittybuilt safari top was exactly what I wanted. The Header fits well and holds the front of the top the way it should. The tie-downs and straps for the top are in exactly the right place to help reduce wrinkles and prevent flapping. It is well made and I would certainly buy it again.

      Great summer top

      Easy to install, great protection from the sun, it is not sea-through like the mesh style tops. Superb quality for the price. It protects from sun and from rain if ever caught off guard. Takes maybe 25 minutes to install for first timers. If correctly installed it does not flop in the wind much. Color matches the original soft top. Shipping was free. Would buy again.

      Fits Great but plastic clips broke

      First of all, this is my first soft top. It was pretty easy to install and didn't take much time at all. The only issue I had was with the plastic clips/tabs in the back that are used to cinch down the rear two straps. Maybe I pulled on it too hard, I didn't want it flapping around, but one of them broke off. The fix I used was a carabiner through the loop where it broke off and some ratchet straps. This seemed to work perfect and made the top very snug.

      Box was beaten up pretty bad, but the top was not damaged. No instructions in the box. I finally found instructions online and it wasn’t clear if I needed the j clips or not. Once I figured out what to do, installation was not difficult.
