    Review & Install Video

    This is for those of you that are looking a hardtop that's going to give your Jeep completely different look. From the outside, you're going to have a taller top with additional windows across the top of it, which will give your Jeep more of that safari or even Range Rover look. From the interior, that additional headroom and the additional windows, and the light they let in is gonna make your interior feel a lot more open.Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this top which a very simple one out of three wrench install. You are gonna have to give yourself around an hour and a couple of friends on hand to help lift this top, but we'll talk more about that installation in just a second. Now, because this top does look so different from factory, this is going to be one of those love it or hate it mods. If you do decide to go with this top because you like the aesthetics, you should know that you are going to give up a couple of factory style features that a lot of the other aftermarket tops at this price point will have, things like a rear wiper, rear defrost, and rear washer. But if you really like this look, you're not gonna get it from a lot of other tops, so this is gonna be the one for you.As far as the construction goes, this top is built in the way of a lot of other aftermarket tops. This is going to be a honeycomb style fiberglass, which helps to get weight down a little bit and also keep strength up. But because this is a one piece top, the whole thing still weighs 350 pounds, and like I said, you're definitely gonna need some help getting this on and off of your Jeep. Now, because this is a one piece top, you are going to lose out on that factory sunrider feature. You're not gonna be able to pop the top off just over the front seat passengers and have that open air driving experience. This is going to close you in permanently until, of course, you remove the entire top. This is going to have the same DOT approved safety glass on the side windows, and it does come tinted right out of the box at 31%, which gives your Jeep that nice dark look. The top windows here are going to be a plexiglass plastic material, of course, being curved, but cheaper and easier to build them in that way. And again, those windows are really what's gonna give you that open feel on the inside along with the additional headroom. Those windows let in a lot of additional light. As I mentioned before, a couple things that this top doesn't have that some of the other hardtops on the market are going to have is that rear wiper, rear defrost, and rear washer. Those features, to some of you, are gonna be really important to others, you're okay giving it up for the very unique looks of this top.As I mentioned before, this top is going to be a very simple one out of three wrenches to install. You're just gonna need some hand tools and about an hour. But because it is a one piece top that weighs around 350 pounds, you are going to have to have a couple of friends to help you lift it into place. The first step in the installation is, of course, removing whichever top you currently have installed on the Jeep, whether be a hardtop or soft-top. From there, there's a little bit of hardware that you'll need to remove from the top of the windshield frame that's there to normally hold you hardtop or soft top in place. You'll remove those loops and install the loops that come with your new top. After that, it's time to install the top, which is really just a matter of lifting it onto the Jeep. Once it's installed, you'll use the included hardware to bolt it down to the tub rails in the back. And finally, use the adjustable clasps to clip it into the new hardware at the top of the windshield frame. Again, just some hand tools and about an hour's time and have some friends around but this is an easy install.This top's gonna come in at right around $2800. And you've been shopping for hardtop, you'll know that most aftermarket of even OEM tops are gonna be right in that area. Let's face it, these are big pieces, there's a lot of material there, they're gonna be a little bit expensive. But for the price, you are going to get a very unique look from this top, even if you have to give up a little bit of that factory functionality, by not having the rear wiper, washer, or defroster, or that sunrider feature. So this is going to be a very unique looking hardtop that's going to give you a different style than a lot of the other aftermarket tops on the market. So that's my review. This is Smittybilt Safari Hardtop fitting your four-door 2007 and up JK that you can find it right here at

    Big Safari Style. Get your 2007-2018 4-door JK Wrangler noticed with this one of a kind Safari-style hard top. The signature raised roof design of the Smittybilt Safari Hard Top allows for an extra 5" headroom and creates a unique overland look. Integrated into this Smittybilt Safari Hard Top are four "portal" windows, adding to the Safari/Overland style and of course allowing more light into the cabin. The top uses a mildew-resistant carpeted headliner that does an excellent job at reducing ambient road noise. In fact, this hard top is quieter inside the Jeep than the stock top.

    1-Piece Design. The 1-piece safari-style hard top design adds extra 5 1/2" of head room and the unique overland design makes it stand out from other 4-Door JKs.

    Modular Design. Hand-crafted right here in the US from honeycomb fiberglass, the Safari Hard Top is engineered to provide excellent strength without extra weight. The top comes painted with a black textured finish that is UV-treated to resist fading and sun cracking.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Hi! I've read many reviews about top leaking water. Can drip panels be installed or is there any fix to this known issue with the top?

        • The Smittybilt Safari Hard Top does not have drip rails, but drip rails can be added.

        Helpful (5)

        How is the noise reduction with this top? Any information on how this top ranks for safety against some of the heavier hard tops, like the Freedom Fastback one-piece?

        • The Smittybilt Safari Hard Top will reduce wind noise significantly over the OEM soft top and premium soft top, however you will experience similar levels of noise to that of the OEM hard tops. No aftermarket hard tops have undergone any standardized safety tests that would allow comparison.

        Hello; Does the stock glass rear window fit this top? If not, can the window be drilled to accept the stock wiper?

        • The factory rear window would not work with this top, we would not advise drilling the glass or the top itself.

            Grab a Tube of Silicone!

            I installed this top on a 2015 JK unlimited. The top arrived with a small dent in the passenger side rear-most upper window, but wasn't worth the trouble of pursuing an exchange. As a great majority of reviews on the safari top state, the upper windows leak like you wouldn't believe. Ultimately, the space and practicality this top provides outweighs the trouble of having to effectively seal the upper windows. Furthermore, I have never recieved so many compliments on my Jeep than I have since I installed this top. It really is sharp.

            Cool Style, Poor Construction

            Purchased this fall of 2018. The four skylights were loose and popped out this winter. Was able to salvage and re-apply at my own cost. Front clip to secure to windscreen cane damaged; sent in a warranty claim and still waiting on replacement part. Gasket on rear window failed permitting water to leak into back of Jeep—a very big mess! Submitted a warranty claim and still waiting on replacement part. This top does look cool but without rear wiper or defroster, the rear window can become unusable after severe mud, rain or snow. For the same price, you can buy three piece OEM top. American Fastback has a similar top but twice as expensive before shipping. The ability to add safari rack with predrilled holes was a major plus. Very easy to install but you will need two men and a small boy to put it on. If it takes you more than an hour to install, please turn in your man card and gun to the lieutenant.

            Safari hard top

            The safari top is made poorly and the side glass does not stay sealed.They sent new glass to replace the faulty glass but I had to pay to get the new glass installed. Then they still wasn't staying sealed so they sent a new top and its currently on now. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THE NEW TOP BUT I GUESS I'M STUCK WITH IT NOW. THIS WAS A VERY TIME CONSUMING AND A VERY EXPENSIVE LESSON LERNED. I WILL NOT BE RECOMMENDING THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE

            Love it

            Going from a soft top to this, I couldn't be happier. Lots of additional space, and I get stopped everywhere I go. Looks great and it isn't something you see on the road everyday. Would highly recommend. It's a one piece top so you either have it on or off. It weighs 350lbs and I installed by myself in under and hour, though I would recommend getting a couple people to help you install it.
