Did your windshield header come as a 2 piece or 1 piece? Mine is a 2 piece and the only complaint I have is that it leaks between the two pieces. They're as close together as they can be but I still get water through the gap during a moderate to heavy shower. After this winter I was planning on trying a weather seal of some kind when I put it back on this spring. Other than that I love it. Nice write up too!
Mine came with a 2 piece header but I didn't use it. I had a header from the factory soft top already installed so I used that. Might try some RTV or something to seal it up.
I do have a problem with water leaking at the top corners of the windshield where the door surrounds stop. It might just be the uppers I'm using but I can see out of the corners there and water leaks in pretty easily. Anyone else with this problem?
ProvinT13, the Bestop doors don't work. The rear corner of the top of the door is a different shape and doesn't seal. The door sticks out too far to the back.
Does it seal at the doors? It looks loose in the pics, but it could just be the pics.
I have a cargo rack on mine that bolts through the side of the tub. That makes putting the side curtains on my Supertop on difficult because of a lack of clearance between the retaining strip and the rack's support brackets. How far out does the side curtain retainer stick?
I like this setup. I would think that Supertop two piece soft doors would work, since my soft doors work on a hard top or on my Supertop. Thanks for the write up. I may look into this later on this year.

It seals well. The seals on the door are the finest thing 1987 had to offer and they need to be replaced. As far as uppers go, I haven't tried any of the soft uppers except the factory ones. They will not work for sure since they have the squared edge as opposed to the rounded factory hard door style. I still love it.

I am new to this and would like some direction. I have 95 with hardtop. full doors.
was looking for a frame and soft top and would like one that folds back to spare tire
but unable to locate one. Does anyone make a complete folding top for a YJ. If not
then thing softtopper might be way to go. thanks
It's pretty bad on the highway. I tie my zipper strings around my grab handles to keep them pulled in. There is too much pressure on the back of the uppers so it pushes them out and makes it so I have to slam my door. Not really ideal.
