Correct Bestop bikini top for 2013 hard top .

Placed an order for the Bestop # 52580 Header Bikini Top, Black (07-09 Wrangler JK 2 Door) as it was listed for 07-13 on the venders site. They didnt have any listed for 10-13 now after looking at Bestops site I found they do have another part number 52586 for the 10-13. So will the 52850 work with my 13 hard top model and full doors or do I need the 52586 ?


# 52586

This Bikini top attaches to the sports bar - it does not require or attach to door surrounds.
Requires installation of windshield channel #51243, available separately

# 52580
The Bestop Header Bikini attaches to your windshield with a special channel that requires no drilling.
Requires installation of windshield channel #51243, available separately.

If you're running a hardtop on your Jeep right now, you'll need to get a Header Channel to use the bikini top. The header channel will allow the bikini top to attach to your Jeep's windshield frame. As for the tops themselves, the reason they have different versions for the 2009 and down, and 2010 and up is the factory door surrounds are different.

I have seen people run the 07-09 version on a 2010+ Jeep and it worked, but it fit really poorly. I would recommend returning it and getting the 52586.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions. I'll be glad to help.

get the one for 10-13's. I put on the bikini for 07-09 and I have a 2010. It sucked! It didn't fit right on top and I got drenched every time it rained. Just recently sold it cause I thought there wouldn't be a big dif in the tops but apparently there is.
you can see where the top doesn't fit to the door surrounds

Remo,

I actually used your classified post on JKFreaks to see how it fit on the 10+. So, thank you for posting those pictures up!

You're welcome, I was a little upset it didn't fit good. I like the way the top looks

Yea the bikini/windjammer/duster combo looks great. Are you planning on getting another combo to run?

Remo,

Yea, that's one down side to the combo. You do loose a good bit of storage, which lets face it, Jeeps don't start with a lot of that. Then you loose use of your back seat which can also be kind of a pain.
