Whew, thanks for your post, I bought the wrap around windjammer not noticing that it required the speaker cover thing. I will be making my own setup now knowing that the speaker bar cover isn't worth a crap.

Why could they not make the windjammer functional without the cap?? I know why they don't but am angry they don't. All they had to do was put a couple straps on it, which I intend to do. I would not be upset at all if it did not meet up against the speaker bar completly but still worked better than I have it now. Guess this will be my last bestop product.

I've bought my last product from them. I'm still trying to fix the $850 soft top I bought from them.

I could only hope that someone from Bestop management reads this, because there customer service must not relay this info to them about their crap!

Must have some big problems over at Bestop...

Usually, it seems the first time the word "Bestop" Hits JF, there is a response on here quickly.

Anybody know what's up?

I'm no genius, but I don't think it would be hard to find a whole bunch of outa work textile folks to help Bestop get their "stuff" together.

Nuff said for now.

Best Top??

Just brought my new Unlimited Sahara home yesterday. I love it! Would love some advice to a new forum member for a good quality bikini top, or something like that. Out here in Seattle, I could get caught in the rain with my top off!

Thanks in advance!!

As for the bikini I purchased, to be fair I have no issues with this Bestop piece.

Come on guys...give Bestop a break. Do you know how hard it is to get a good translation from Chinese to Spanish?

Hopefully he'll log-on soon and stop by for a visit

My bikini is actually really nice too. At 4wheelpart.com I got it with a free header so you may want to look there to save some money. When I got it I was very happy with the quality, that is what made me decide to get the duster/windjammer to go with it. One thing, the directions suck, you will want to look at some pics on here to get an idea of how it is suppose to be installed.
