Need soft top/bikini top help..

So I bought this used bikini top, guy said it was for a YJ. But now I'm not so sure. Maybe I'm just missing a part. No idea where the front piece connects to the windshield. Provided pics for assistance.

Did your jeep come with a hard top? If so you are missing a "header channel" not positive but pretty sure.

Don't know about a YJ, but most bikinis that I have seen require a windshield header. Either a "drill style" or a "no drill style". The header attaches to the top of the windshield frame and the front edge of the bikini fits into it.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

Look at Morris 4x4 or quadratech (free shipping) and look for a windshield header for your model.

4 Wheel Parts isn't a bad option. I already had the header from the aftermarket soft top when I bought my bikini top, but I priced it at close to $20.

I actually had a header on my old windshield frame now that I think about it. Got into an accident a few months back and my head went through the windshield though -_-.

Something like these?

Second one is made specifically for bikini tops, and apparently isn't interchangeable for soft tops.
So should I go with that?
