it was difficult snapping the sun cap to the header.
The windshield channel screwed right down into the existing holes along the top of the windshield. I did have to buy bigger screws because the holes were enlarged from a previous channel but other than that the channel installed easily and works well.
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.
i have 1997 tj with hardtop, will this header 90104 work and what bikini top would i use.

Hi Britt The Quick Detach Windshield Header will work fine on your Jeep. S/B933 to cover the front seats or S/B936 and whatever color you would liketo cover the front and back seats will work on the Jeep. Thanks

Hi Rubicon 11, Yes, This Smittybilt Quick Detach Windshield Header is what holds the 946xx style extended bikini top onto the windshield frame on the JK Wrangler's '07 and newer. Thank you for you inquiry.

A quick detach header is part of the folding soft top as part of the hardware as the bow also is part of the folding top hardware.So what is this windshield channel header or without the header ending .So the windshield channel is just a seal between the window and the header that is screwed to the soft top ?
Asked by trying to get the right part bob from spokane,washington state on
Hello Bob If your Jeep has the factory hardware the top is attached to the channel with screws. If you are going to use a bikini top you would need the Quick Detach Windshield Header to attach the bikini to the windshield frame,. Thanks
