The Bestop Halftop combines the popular Bikini, Windjammer and Duster in one to completely seal the cockpit from exposure to the elements. In addition it features a fold-back sunroof for instant open-air driving and a zip out rear window that exposes a built-in mesh screen for ventilation. Fitting 1997-02 Wrangler models with a factory soft top, this Halftop application is specific to the factory soft top because it anchors to the door surrounds and utilizes the factory tops tailgate bar to complete the installation. Featuring the patented Bestop Belt-Rail attachment system.



Awesome Top!

I love the bikini/wind jammer/duster appearance that is fully enclosed to withstand weather. Fairly simple install, just make sure you have the sunroof open for the frontman loop strap to be long enough, and have a tail gate bar already. It was not mentioned that it was not included. The top fits really well/ It is tight in just the right spots, yet no too tight that you have to force it to stretch. I love the idea of the rear zip out window with the mesh insert. All in all this seems to be a great top!

5 Answered questions

what is the reason this wouldn't fit on a 2003 rubicon?


Hi CJ CUSTOMZ, This Bestop Halftop only fits the TJ's up through '02 models due to the roll bar diameter being too big for this to fit on the '03 and newer TJ's. Thanks for your inquiry.

Does this half top require any extra hardware or does it fit with factory header ect?

Asked by Jim from Chesapeake , VA on

Hey Jim, the Bestop Halftop comes the top and framework. You will need to have the factor door surrounds and tailgate bar because the top does not come with those. Thanks for your question.
