drill in headers

Does anybody have any pics of how to put the drill in style headers for bikini tops? Mine didnt come with any instructions and I'm not sure where it goes. Thanks

That is a really different style of header. I don't don't know if I'd use it. I bought the Bestop no-drill and really like it.

I've herad somewhere that it doesn't work for any wranglers newer than a 2002, but it says in the description that it will work for up to an 06. Should I just exchange it for one of the other no drill ones?

I would. If it were me, I'd go with the Bestop or Smittybuilt.

It's not ours, but if you go to this page, and pick the closest one, the installation instructions might help you.

But I'd suggest exchanging for a no-drill -
CJ owners will drill holes in their rigs just for fun, but most JK owners want to keep things tidy.

A drill-style header won't work for a 2003 or newer Wrangler TJ or LJ. Jeep added a plastic frame over the windshield frame's inner surface that covers up where a drill-style header mounts.
