These windshield channels are needed for installing brief tops if Jeep does not have a factory soft top windshield channel.
it was difficult snapping the sun cap to the header.
At this time I have only used this windshield header for about 3 weeks but it was very easy to install and is very stable. The price was very reasonable compared to other similar products. It seems to be working well and hope to be saying the same thing over the next couple of months but only time will tell. That is the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. If it holds up long term defintly a 5 star item.
This windshield header gets the job done. It is not as tight a fit as you would expect from something made for your Jeep, but it does get the job done.
Not too hard to set up and seems to create a tight seal when installed. First time I set it up, one of the snaps that the top connects to actually broke off. Decided that it shouldn't make a significant difference in the operation and will probably be easier to try to fix rather than pay to ship it back and get another. A little dissapointed but as this will not be a daily use item (off road and beach days only)I am not as worried.
Had a nice little V shape out of the box; welded in the middle. Would not conform to the shape when installed and the installation scratched where it attaches. My experiences with smittybuilt has been 0 for 3. No more for me.
will this windshield header work with smittybilt part number 946xx top.

Does this require any drilling to install? If not, how does it attach?
Asked by cm from va on
Hello CM! This Smittybilt Quick Detach Windshield Header Channel does not require any drilling. It comes with latches that attach to the footman loops on the inside of the windshield behind the sun visors. Channel sits on top of the windshield and the latches hook on the footman loops and you push the latch handle down to secure the channel. Thank you!
