    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

        Does the extended top install with full door surrounds and sound bar in place? Basically if I'm removing a soft top from a stock 2002 X with full doors and want to know prep work.

            This is the second Smittybilt product I have bought for my TJ...and I am done buying their products. Yet again, I can't get a good seal on the velcro straps as they are about an inch short. If I take off my padding, they are then too big. Had the same issue with the cargo net. Thus, I am getting some pretty bad sagging on the top and it looks pretty bad. I need to find a fix without buying a different one.

            Exactly what is was looking to accomplish, easy to install and fit well. It took about 20 minutes to install with the bikini top. Provides enough shade so you're not burned to crisp on a sunny day and still gives you the open air feeling while riding the beach.

            Great value

            This Brief Top is the best I’ve used so far on the 2004 Wrangler. Instillation was a breeze and the quality of the top is obvious from the time you open the box. What I like best is once all the straps are tighten down the top stays in place while driving down the road, very little to no movement and hardly any obnoxious flapping noise.

            I love the top. It's better then putting the soft top up without the windows . Less noise. You do have to order the windshield rail to install the top.

            5 2004 Wrangler - Severe Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

            Smittybilt Extended Brief Top

            The top works great, exactly as advertised and at $72 bucks a real bargain. I found that putting the 'hook' on the side of the tub next to the roll bar worked better to keep it from flapping at 75 MPH than on the back of the tub. I live in AZ, would love to see this in white or silver fabric for the heat, or black / gray / white cammo for a little style, but very happy with the product and X Terrain service.

            Nice Top

            Top is made of a quality material. Fairly easy to install once you get past the edge that goes in header. After being folded in half in the box the plastic channel insert is rather difficult to get to stay in channel if doing by yourself. By the time i moved to other side it would pop out. Im sure after being installed for awhile the kink will be gone and installation by yourself will be a breeze. Just be sure to have an extra set of hands on 1st install and it will save you some headache.

            good top

            Before purchasing this top I had a Bestop, very similiar design, but not the same quality. The Smittybilt is a thicker material, was much easier to install, and connects to the tub so it stays in place. I had to modify the the Bestop so i could drive it on the highway. I would definitely recommend.

            Bikini install

            It took me a few extra minutes (with a second person) to install. I also cheated and attached the rear first (loosely). Just enough to keep the top in place. It was a tight fit in places, but once installed, it’s awesome. I had one back in the day that used to flap like crazy, and this one has hardly any noise to it I’m very pleased
