Is anyone using this bikini top? I need a bikini top for my '04 TJ. This seemed like a decent one. The Bestop bikini top also looked pretty good but the SpiderWeb looked easier and more convenient to install. Would appreciate any comments!
I bought one last year and love it. First let me say, I ordered it off ebay from the Spiderweb company and after about 2 weeks the packaging showed up, but the top wasn't in it. The post office had a note stating the package was "damaged" and this is what was left.....wonderful. I contacted the spiderweb company and they sent another one out with no charge to me! Their customer support was awesome!
I like the top. You can use it many different ways as their website shows. What I liked most about it, was I could have it installed and still put my soft top up over it if I wanted. It also rolls up really nice and you can store it under your seat if you don't want to use it all the time.
I have SW1 and love it as well. It can be left on under any top, and it makes great shade while maintaining the open air feel that we all love! It will NOT keep you dry in anything more than a sprinkle, tho it will diffuse the rain drops....
i bought it last summer when i was driving my TJ on the street more, its more of trail only now, but its a great product.
i bought the full 3 piece one, bikini, wind jammer, and rear seat, worked great on my stock cage, though after installing a aftermarket roll cage, im not sure how well it will fit. should be fine though
I love mine. I used to roll around with my soft top with no windows and what not "safari style" but after I saw one of these I had to try one out. Lol! just don't get caught in a rain shower though, they definitely don't keep out the rain too well.
The only thing I don't like about the one piece SW1 is that if you ever have people in the back seat, the part that dips down will actually be right on the passenger's head. I had a friend who's about 5'4" sit in the back on a road trip and she had to lean over because that part was in the way, it's no big deal though, I mean I think if it was totally annoying, we could've found a way to relocate that part...
Here's a pic to show you that rear area I'm talking about

I just bought a Bestop Safari top and am probably going to return it... I wanted it to replace the soft top for the summer, but the way it straps to the roll cage and door surrounds, it allows for ALOT of water to get in when it rains. So I will probably go back to using my soft top when I need shade or protection from the rain OR maybe look into buying this spiderweb thing, because it looks as if I could put the soft top up, even if the spiderweb top was in use.
