The Bestop Header Bikini attaches to your windshield with a special channel that requires no drilling. It also features reinforced edges to eliminate flapping and comes complete with industrial-grade buckles and webbing, and color-matched fabric. Bestop�s distinctive mesh fabric is mildew and tear resistant for added durability. Mesh fabric allows open air feel while reducing UV rays and heat inside the cockpit. Heavy-duty buckles and fittings for long life. Strength tested thread and webbing helps eliminate flapping.
I bought this even after reading the previous reviews because the picture showed it installed WITH the door surrounds. I also bought the wraparound windjammer so taking off the surrounds was not an option. To my relief, I was able to install this top with only a few minor tweaks. I removed the sunrider top clamps off of the door surrounds to give me access (4 screws) and then attached the Velcro side flaps AFTER the top was in place. So far it all fits, time will tell if it stays in place.
Great for keeping out of the sun. Bought what I thought would be the best quality and although it appears well made it does not fit as advertised around the door surrounds
This top does not fit a 2012 or a 2013 JK!! You have to remove the door surrounds and with the doors on it looks down right horrible. DO NOT BUY THIS TOP!!!!
Will this top work with 2014 jk wrangler that does not appear to have door surrounds? I only remove the front freedom panels and leave the back of the hard top on the vehicle. I would like something easy to throw on in the event of rain, without always having to carry the front hard freedom panels with me. Do you have to remove the windshield channel to put the hard pieces back on the jeep? Lastly, if you go with a bestop safari top with the sewn in windshield channel, can you install it with the back of the freedom hard top still on the vehicle?

Hello Jenny, the Bestop Header Bikini in Black Diamond part# BST52586-35 will work with just the rear of the freedom top installed, but you do need to have a windshield channel installed as well. The channel will need to be removed if you want to put your front panels back on. Thank you for your inquiry.

Can this product be used with CRES #S/B571035? I own a 2010 JK and I am looking for alternatives to my soft top. Also, can it be easily removed if need be?

Joel- Thanks for the question. Yes the Bestop Header Bikini in Black Diamond is compatible with the Smittybilt CRES. It can be removed quite easily.
