Bestop, manufacturer of the original Bikini Top, now offers a full strapless bikini which provides complete protection from the elements. This top allows you to keep the rain and sun off you and your rear seat passengers while providing that open-air driving experience. Produced from high quality durable fabric, the Safari Bikini top is perfectly color matched to all Bestop accessories. Installation is easy-no drilling required if you have a soft top on your JK Wrangler. The Safari Bikini will fit with or without sound bar. JKs with factory hardtops will have about a 2" gap around the front roll bar due to not having door surrounds.

    Comments about Bestop Safari Header Bikini Top in Black Diamond:

    The top itself seems to be made of strong material that will hold up like any bestop. However, the advertising line that says, "keep rain and sun off you and your passengers" is a joke, I understand a safari top won't keep all rain out, but I don't expect a light rain to pour in on you from above with the top on. What is not told to us (even when I ordered on the phone with a rep), is you MUST have the door surrounds (stinks for us hardtop owners at [$] apiece!) or you will have an almost 3" gap between the top and the doors. If I had known this, I would have gone with something else... Also, instead of cutting the top to fit exactly onto the specific model jeep, bestop uses gussets of fabric to allow for a "Custom fit" which translates to tons of wrinkling and a terrible looking top...

    • Q:

      I have a 2008 JK Hardtop 4 door. I am confused by the drilling requirement. In previous questions it states no but in the product description it says you do not need to drill only if you have a soft top. I will only use it during the summer and put the hard top back on for the winter. Will I need to drill anything to mount this top with the quick attach header?

    • Q:

      I have a hard top on my Jeep now. Do I have to buy a channel to go across the windshield to mount the soft top? Is their drilling involved or is there a nondrilling application available?

        You will need a windshield channel to install the soft top. If you are buying a complete new soft top with the hardware it will come with a quick detach channel no drilling required. If you are just installing a Bikini top for the summer you will need to buy a channel. #BST51243-01 $47.99 this is a quick detach no drilling required channel. http://www.4wd.com/search.aspx?kw=quick+detach+channel
