bestop bikini for JK 4 door question

Hi, I just ordered the bestop bikini for my 2011 4 door JK. I know that once it is in place, there still be a gap between the doors and the bikini and if it rains water will get in. Somewhere I read or heard that there is something that can be added to close this gap between the doors and the roll tubes where the bikini is attached. Is this true? Whats the name of that item and where can I get it?

First off, do you have a soft top? If so then you already have the 'door surrounds' (the something that can be added to close the gap) and those should make your jeep fairly water tight. I have a hard top and the bikini does leave a gap that allows water to get in. If you have a hard top like me you can purchase the door surrounds, but I think they are kind of pricey. Hope this helps.

Thank you!, I'm on the same spot, mine is a hard top. I'll check the prices for the surrounds, thank you for the information.

They're about $89 ea.+ 40 for a pair of bolts to fasten them to the roll bar..... Mopar prices... Iirc. Check Quadratec, and morris 4x4 to verify. Also you can check with your dealer, they probably aren't much more expensive, if any. Ebay, CL etc sometimes have them too... You should get mucket seals as well if you're adding door surrounds.
