Soft top question

I have a 12 JKU and I'm looking for a summer top. I have a hard top so I don't have door surrounds. I don't want to spend too much and I'm really looking at a bikini/Bimini type top. What kind of options do I have since I don't have door surrounds?

Spiderweb shade trail mesh. Best $100(ish) you'll spend.

You may be able to find a super cheap one on your local Craig's List.

Check out Craigslist or kijiji depending in where you live. I'm actually purchasing a complete soft top from a local jeeper for 400 bucks!! Minus 2 roll bar mounting brackets haha but still that's a deal.

What are door surrounds? I am looking for a soft top also. Was going with a factory soft top, but still open for suggestions.

The soft top needs something to attach to, so it can seal around the doors. There's a plastic thing that wraps around like an upper door sill that allows the top to attach and seal. Without the door surrounds, there's like a 2" gap and your top will be flapping all over the place.

You don't need any hardware for bikini tops or Bimini tops
