  • Bestop | Part Number: BST52581-35
  • Coverage:Front and Rear
  • Color:Black Diamond
  • Fitment:Direct Fit


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.




2009 Besttop Bikini top

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

Nice alternative to a full top

Uses the door surrounds and a quick detach header. Easy to install looks great

Quality piece

In place of a soft top it works great. With the door surrounds it keeps rain out just as well as the factory top. It's a well made piece, and it fits well. It's easy to install and remove.

Need better description

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...

How is this product different from Extended Brief Top, Summer Top Bundle? Im Looking for a top that will shield from Sun and Rain and I can run with or without doors.

Hey Rich, this Bestop Safari Header Bikini Top attaches differently then the Brief top and the bundle comes with the windshield channel to mount this product. Thanks for your question.

Answered by JordanC extension4833 from United States on

I have a 2008 hardtop and I'm looking for a top for the summer to provide some shade but also be water resistant. Are these tops water resistant and if not what would be a good top that's fast to put on and take down and that is water resistant?
