As to your issues.

The rollbar strap on the duster are actually to be used with the factory softop hardware in place. If you notice in the rear corners the duster collapses in to the tub corners because they do not have the hardware there for support.

For your second problem you might not have the jammer pulled down tight enough to the floor for the duster to snap to it. I have 2 military ALICE bags on my back seat folded and can still snap my duster to the jammer.

As for your sight issue I can't help you there as I have no problem seeing out of mine. I have always leaned more to the passenger side to look out the back and use my mirror with a blind spot one as well.

I will take pictures tomorrow of mine and post them. The only one I have now is not a very detailed one.

When did you buy yours? It's possible that the issues mentioned have been addressed by Bestop in the year that's passed since the post you quoted was made. This thread was revived by a spammer or other trolling type

Yeah I guess I should have looked at the dates I keep doing that
I got mine in March of this year though but they may make 2 versions of the jammer I am not sure.

I went to the 4wheel shop here in Jax and the one he pulled up was for use with the factory soft top hardware in place.

I know Bestop does make a 3 section cover that is 1 or 2 pieces with the duster and jammer as 1 piece or it could be all 3 as 1 unit but over $500 I can get a full top....

Instead of starting another thread, I thought that I would bring this one back. I'm running a safari top and a duster. I'm also running a Rockhard harness bar that is similar to this one that I "borrowed".



It leaves gaps, even larger than a regular TJ windjammer, because it is located farther to the rear and the Windjammer has to bend around it. It is also creates a minor PITA with my Carbeau retractable seat harness. The JKs are wider and I am wondering if. a JK windjammer might close those gaps up a little. I know that I will still have gaps but, I am only wanting to close them up a tad. I ran this entire warm season without a windjammer and can live with how I handled it. Just very curious if, anyone has tried using a JK windjammer on a TJ.

You could maybe post over in the JK section and get someone to take measurements of one, that could help. Good luck
