    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.

    Helpful (0)

    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.

      Must have...

      I missed the must have piece to this header. I first bought the cover on Amazon. Front wouldn’t stay down, buckle broke... Bought the header and the cover. Fits like a glove. Love it.

      Smittybilt windshield header

      This was easy to install and worked good. The foam seal didn’t stick and fell off when I took it out of the box.

      Smittybilt header

      Perfect fit. Bolted right in where the hard top clips in. Just a couple minutes to install and I was ready for the Smittybilt extended brief top.

      I recieved what I asked for.

      Smittybilt Windshield Header fulfilled exactly as promised. Light be durable construction with quality materials. Easy install; just be patient while alternately tightening the two retainer bolts and it should snug down into correct position. Correct fit to prevent leaks during a few heavy rains at highway speeds, although I am not sure that matters when the rain is rushing in around my open-air brief top.

      Needed for soft top

      A header is required when placing any type top other than a hardtop on your Jeep. It provides the front attachment point to the windshield. The fit and finish of this header is excellent. There is no assembly required, just remove the packaging materials put the header in place and tighten the bolts to hold it in place.

      Sparce instructions

      The instructions don't tell you that you don't have to remove the rubber gasket at the top of the windshield frame. They also don't tell you that the two bolts have to be tightened ALL THE WAY DOWN or the header will come off. Otherwise, it is a well made product at a good price. It does the job!!!
