bikini tops question??

If you do not have a soft top, or door surrounds that go with a soft top, can you still use a bikini top without the surrounds? I know you need the header bar, just wondering if I need the door surrounds also. Thanks in advance for the help

Yes you can. I ran mine for a little over a month without one last year. It is fine but a little pain in the rain. When I got out and it looked like rain, I would have to make sure the tops edge was over the door seal so water wouldn't rush in. When you shut the door the door would tend to caught and push the edge of the top behind the door so I would have to pull it back over the door so not to leak. Well, not to leak as bad, lol

The Bikini they made for the 2010 (and I'm presuming newer) have no attachmnt points for the door surrounds. The 2007-2009 Bikini slide into the horizontal portion of the door surround.

They actually sell two different types...one for door surrounds and one without. I ran one made for door surrounds on a TJ and the front seats were always dry in pouring rain.

Run mine without. I don't mine much but it can let water in some but really only in VERY heavy rain. I usually only take my hard top of once a year and use the bikini as needed.

So basically, if I wanna make sure to stay dry, order the one that goes with the surrounds, or if I don't care about getting a little wet, go the without route. Thanks everyone, gonna try to get it ordered this week. Any brand better than the other, or are the all similar?
