A regular Bikini top is fine for the front seat occupants, but what about those folks in the back? A Safari Bikini Top keeps everybody covered while riding the trails without your soft top. Safari Bikini tops have extended length and install over both the front and rear seats for stylish protection while enjoying an open air drive. A must-have for Wrangler 4-door owners.
Product came quickly. Quality material and installed in minutes.
I was looking for sun protection and protection from a possible pop up shower. This should do the trick. IMPORTANT: Before putting it on, place the top in the sun for about 20 minutes. This will make it more pliable to insure a proper fit. It also makes it much easier to install. Otherwise you will curse as it flops in the wind. A drawback: Top does not cover rear seat completely. Also wish the straps were longer.
I'm not using the door surrounds and it still fits good I don't have any excessive noise everything seems to fit perfect I love it
Very nice top, but a little tricky to install. You need a least 2 people to get it on. one to hold the front of the top in the header and the other to pull it tight and strap the rear. Once it's tight on the header, the rest of the install is easy.
Top has an excellent fit and looks great . Good quality fabric, similar to that of a factory soft top. Keep in mind that this top requires the plastic door trim panels to fit properly (the ones that come with jeeps with full doors). Very happy with the purchase.
Love it. Fits great. Exactly what I was expecting to get.
Very dry even in the south Florida torrential rain. Keeps the front seat completely dry. Way better than I would have hoped for. Only con is that two of the cheap plastic clips snapped during the install and the flimsy plastic tightening buckles don't hold tension at highway speeds, so the top loosens and then flaps. I would buy it again but take it to have the attachment hardware removed and replaced with stronger pieces that do the job of securing it better.
The first installation is a bit difficult. The front of the top does not easily wrap around the edges of the windshield. Once in place, however, it never moved. I'm pleased with the product.
Sharp looking - drew many compliments the first day out with it. You definately need two or more prople to get this thing into the track and hold it while someone tightens the straps. Once you get it on and tight it performs well on the highway with little flapping. The velcro attachments over the front side tubes are sloppy and do not tighten well but it does not really affect the performance. No regrets buying this.
Shipped free and quickly. I had a difficult time getting the plastic tab on the front of the top to stay in the groove of the required bolt on header, BST51238-01. The instructions said to do that first but doing it by myself, the top kept slipping down and out of the channel. I found by centering and using two large spring clamps at the corners to hold the top in place, I could lay the rest of the top in position, attach the rear straps around the rear seat belts anchors. With a little tension on the rear straps, the plastic tab slipped into the channel and stayed there. Once I figured that out, it took about 10 minutes to finish the installation.
Will this top work with full size hard doors? I have a hard top now and will I need the header bar #51238-01? My jeep is a 02 tj wrangler.

No nickname, the Bestop Safari Header Bikini Top works with full doors, and yes you will need the windshield channel when converting from a hardtop. Thanks for the question!

I have a 2012 Sahara Unlimited. I want to remove the hard doors and top. Will this bikini top fit or will it need anything more than the windshield channel.

I have a 2012 4 door JK Sahara Unlimited. Can the front part or all of the bikini top be rolled back & secured for full sun exposure, without taking it completely off?

Hey CJ, the Bestop Safari Bikini Top and Windshield Channel would only be able to be fully installed or fully removed. Thanks for your question.
