2dr soft top question

Hi everybody,

I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive soft top that would cover the backseat passengers from rain and sun for a 2 door JK. All the safari tops and fast back tops (nx Best top for example) seem like rain would drain on the passengers backs. Really would like to avoid the sunrider style, anything in between? What do you suggest?

Thank you

The back of the nx extends to the rear slope of the roll bars, it won't drain onto passengers.

For that situation I usually just leave my top up and remove all the windows.

What about something like this?

Not sure, still seems like it would be close. REALLY would like to keep my kids dry, anything that extends a bit further?

Not that I know of, but I just googled "wrangler extended bikini tops". See what that turns up for you.

I take it you have a hard top? Look at soft tops, they provide the kind of coverage you are talking about, imo.

Keep this in mind when looking to keep the rear passengers out of rain. When you have the back open and the roads are wet, your tires will kick water up into the cab. On really wet roads, the inside of my windshield we be covered in water. The defrost cranked up protects a bit.

Your riding in a jeep though. These things happen and they are fun!
