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.

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?
