        Will this work with the smittybuilt soft top 9970235

        • The Smittybilt Windshield Header is designed for installing Bikini tops only and would not work on the full replacement top.

        I just bought a smittybilt combo soft top to replace my bestop soft top. Do I need a smittybilt windshield header or can I use the old one?

        • More than likely yes. We haven't tested this exact combination, but more often than not they do need the same brand header.

            Windshield header

            Easy install, holds top on well. I don’t think there were any instructions that came with it but not difficult to figure out how it attaches.

            Very well made and finish, Easy to install

            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.

            Works like it should

            Would prefer they create a product that you can leave on all the time and be able to switch between hard and soft top without removing. But it works for its intended purpose. Too bad my order for my bikini top got canceled and now I have a bar with no bikini top.

            Work perfectly and fits great. The windshield header held very tight onto the jeep and there was no leaking of air.
