Review & Install Video

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.

    The item looked great and wasn't too bad to install but I recommend a second person to help, if possible. Also, make sure to check the straps every so often as they may loosen a little.

    Communication Breakdown

    I loved the product and installed it tonight. Unfortunately I did not realize that a crucial part was not included, but was and additional purchase. I did go back and read this in the fine print. It would have been nice if this information was a little more prominently displayed when I ordered.

    Good value for the money

    Shipping was fast. Top is a good purchase in this price range. Everything fits as it should, didn't really like the Velcro straps were they attatch to the front of the rollbar right behind the windshield. The rear flaps at highway speeds no matter how tight it is. I would purchase this top again as a replacement or for another jeep.

    Best product at the best price!

    The Smittybilt Extended Brief Top covers both the driver, passenger, and rear completely. Keeps the sun and slight rain off while keeping the inside cool and shady. The material is very durable and strong, while staying light weight for an easy install. Overall, it took about an hour to install the windshield attachment as well as the brief top. Definitely worth buying for sure.

    Top seems to be well made. Install was easy without door surrounds. With door surrounds not so easy. Needs to be a two person job.

    Make sure you have the Header when you buy this.

    I just installed this on my jeep, it is a great fit with minimal noise. Only problem I have found is that when it rains now, the rain drips on me since I can't attach the frame around the door when I had my regular soft top. The other day it rained while I was at work, my back seat was pretty dry, so was the passenger seat, however the driver's seat was soaked. The rain that settled on the roof drained between the roll bar and the door going straight to the seat. Now I have to figure how to jimmy rig this from happening again.
