bikini top questions

well.. i think here in Florida winter is about over (to most people it never started, our lowest temps this year were only in the 35's)

Its time for a new bikini top. my dad used to have a bikini top that only covered the front part of the jeep. im thinking about one that goes over the top & rear.

questions:
1.if you've had both what do you like better?

2.do you still get as wet with the full bikini top as you do with the front part only one?


This is what im looking at:

Replacing random parts on hunches spurred from other vehicles and peoples experiences with them is the safest bet.

I never had the safari top, but I can tell you wind/rain get's sucked in from the back and get's pulled forward. To truley stay dry, you'll need a Windjammer. I ran one for years and in the summer it's all I run, unless the forcast is for days of rain, then I throw on the soft top.

I had both. go with the safari top. More shade for your passengers in back and will keep you dryer. Still you will get some rear water suck up from the rear but it's a Jeep thing.

yeah im not to worried about the water. i go mudding at least once a week so i have to wash the inside out with a hose anyway. im more concerned about climbing in a sokeing wet jeep that ben parked in the rain all day. thats never fun =/

is it possible to like jerry rig that back part of materal that goes over the back seats to fold up or something so its like a half bikini top and half safari top?
