Why not a Bestop "1/2" Top for 03-06?



What has to be modified on an 03-06 Tj for the Bestop 1/2 top to work?

Bestop claims this 1/2 top for 97 - 02 Tj's "seals" the cab as opposed to the windjammer etc. available for the 03 - 06 which does not "seal" the cab. Seems they're only available for 97 to 02. Is it the sound bar that the 1/2 top won't accommodate on the 03 - 06? The windshield frame? Door surrounds? Anyone know?

I had one once for my '01 and it leaked like crazy and nearly ruined the interior of my Jeep, it was so bad that I took it off and sold it. If you are looking for a half top to keep the interior of your Jeep dry, this one isn't it. If you just looking for shade, there are other less expensive options available.
