I ordered the Bestop Safari Bikini Mesh 4 door top. This top is absolutely the worst piece of junk! It is so poorly constructed that the snaps donít even properly line up with the header. Donít even try to use it with the door frames as it is so tight in can only be installed at 80 plus degrees, and is impossible to remove without pliers, even in the sun. Talk about a rush to market. Wait for something much better. Instructions for installation might as well be written by my 3 year old.
I TOTALLY DISAGREE!!! We installed ours yesterday and it fit on perfectly. The ride is great with it on - no flapping or extra wind noise. I found it pretty easy to install. The only only thing that needs changing is the strap sizing. Either too long or too short to go over the padded area. It was a simple fix, however. LOVE IT!!!!
Did you use the door frames or just strap it to the sport bars? Maybe my top was just poorly manufactured. However, even your statement about fastening straps being too short or long seems like major production issues for a company like Bestop where you would expect quality control.
I can't figure out where the looped thing is supposed to go on the sides of the door?? mine always flaps up while going down the road and looks like it's about to fly off. so far i gotta agree it's a piece of sh**!
The whole bikini duster windjammer upgrade has been a disaster and I am very unsatisfied with the approximatley 400 dollars i have spent on it. Starting with the header.... that was a piece of crap..arrived compltely disasembled......directions were not very good either..wound up with spare parts not even mentioned in the directions (two rubber stopper bolts). the duster.. ordered the khaki and got black......and 20 days later still have yet to receive the windjammer.. i think i will send weverything back tommorow and save up for some new wheels.
P.S. I can spell.... just a terrible typer and it is late
BestTop might be having problems with there QA in China where most of the stuff is made. I bought a Trail Cover and it was 5" to short on the sides that clip into the rails. I went back to 4 Wheel Parts and pulled another one out of the box and it fit perfect.
Yes, it lets in the rain but not as much as no top. And at speed you hardly notice the rain... well, except for what coats the inside of the windshield. But that's because of the backflow blowing wind in from behind the Jeep.
I use the doorrails (which means the velcro straps aren't need, they're tucked underneath, and I don't have any flapping.
Basically I like it because it cuts down on the sun shining in my eyes on the way home but still gives me that "topless" feeling. It also works well in the woods when wheeling by keeping the leaves and branches out of the cab.

[QUOTE=SunDevilJeeper;11097300]im running two old school KC daylighters and some baja lights, all pointed in one spot. the KCs are positioned to be exactly at the side mirrors of a vehicle 20 feet ahead and the baja lights are positioned up a little so they hit the rear view mirror perfectly with the brights.
