Weathermen are calling for mid 60's here on Thursday. I think I am going to see some topless drivers.

Cant say for sure but I can tell you that my bestop header worked with my rampage frameless top. so I would guess they are somewhat universal.

if your Soft top is factory, its a built in header. For the aftermarket tops you would have to buy a header and they usually work with various brands of aftermarket.

Wow, we hit 90* in Orlando over the weekend - set a record.
Monday AM (after a cold front) woke up to 45* and it felt great.

It's too early for "summer".

No I have a bestop. So is it safe to assume I can use my bestop header for a bikini top?

I would say yes as long as your top doesn't screw to the windshield channel.

On Friday morning, I had to shovel 5" of snow. Today, the temp reached the low 60s... so I had to drop the top:

Quick question about using your soft top channel for the other tops, would you not have to unscrew the soft top and screw in the bikini or windjammer top to it??? seems to be a pain to keep swapping out the tops. Unless I am not understanding the question......curios

All the tops other than factory slide into the channel. Only the factory one screws in.

Thanks for reply, just to clarify, other than soft top, you install the header channel and all the other tops slide into it. Take it off only to use soft top with the latches on it. Correct?

Well the doors were actually made by my son in his metals class his senior year in high school. The tubes were bent by Tomken Machine here in Buena Vista Co. They are a bit time consuming to build but they have the design. Talk to Jeff and tell him that you seen some doors on Doug's red Jeep. www.tomken.com They are all friends of mine at Tomken.

So I have another dumb question. I've had the jeep since November so I'm new to the soft top thing. But when y'all put a bikini top on do you take the soft top completely off the tub. Or just run with the soft top down with the bikini to on.
