They don't work for Bestop, but I do.

You can reach our customer support team at 800-845-3567 or at csbestop.com.

If you read through the threads, you'll most likely spot a pattern: we can get people who are frustrated with our products, but they like our support. Try them.

Thanks!!

No worries at all. I just love seeing old posts come up-- it makes me smile

Anyway.... when I had the top without the door surrounds, I was a bit disappointed with the noise and fit. But once I got the surrounds, the thing is like a factory lid. I use it with the full doors, and it is awesome. I've driven 600 miles with it on, at freeway speeds and it was perfect.

Yes, it's VERY difficult to get on in the chilly weather, but work from front to back, rolling the plastic pieces into the channels. You're digits will hurt, but it can be done.

yep... they definitely had quality issues back in 2007. I bought my mesh bikini back in '07 or '08 and it had snaps that didn't line up with the header channel either, and mine was for a 2-door. Other than that, it fits VERY tight(sore thumb tight) around the door surrounds, but doesn't flap that much anywhere. Moderately satisfied...

I must say, the newer generation is much better. (Mesh bikini) A friend of mine bought one for a 2 door right when the JK came out in '07. I just got one a couple months ago. The header bar is much improved.

And Yes, I had the forethought to let that sucker sit in the sun before I put it on for the first time. Could not imagine any other way. It's very snug and doesn't flap around.

Yeah, and if you would have posted a new topic, you would have been ragged on for not searching.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Am I the only one that had to cut the plastic pieces to get them to go in the channels?? There is a spot on the surround that kept my bikini from snapping into it. I'd post a pic, but don't have photobucket here at work, may be able to when I get home.
