need bestop help

Hey guys Im thinkin about ditching my soft top which I dont like and only ever put on to keep AC in durin summer and the occasional rainstorm. Im thinking of getting a besttop top like this

Bestop 52532-35 - Bestop Header Safari Bikini Tops for 03-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

and the wraparound cab curtain which ive been fond of for a long time but am still a bit worried I wont be able to get my seat back far enough



This setup is mainly so when its super hot I can use my ac and keep it contained in the small space (I had a homemade cab curtain that gave out and it made a large different with keeping the AC in

My questions are is this the same kinda fabric that is pretty waterproof? (like my stock top?

Are these two items compatible? They both mount to the soft top door surround right?

How far down does the cab curtain extend?

Im hoping this setup will be great to keep AC in and keep the occasional rain storm out of the cab area
Thanks a ton!!!

They are made up of the same material as a stock factory soft top so they are pretty water tight.

a TJ owner can confirm how the bikini top wrap around windjammer attatch. I have a YJ

The cab curtain extends down just short of the floor.

I would consider a rear tonneau cover as well to contain the ac, if you use your back seat then consider this one....
All Things Jeep - Zipper Tonneau Cover, 97-06 Jeep Wrangler w/ Factory Soft Top, Channel Mount, Rampage Products

Look at this thread for pics of the zippered tonneau...

What kind of soft top do you have? Would you be interested in trading? I have the bestop safari top and driless header that goes with it.
