Freedom Front Panels with Windjammers & Dusters?

Anyone know if you can use the 2 Freedom Front Panels (without the back hardtop) with the Windjammers (the piece with the window that goes behind the drivers & passenger seats) &/or Duster deck covers? I really want to take the back hardtop off, but want to still be able to use the Freedom panels in case it rains, etc (seems like we've been getting a rain storm almost everyday when I'm at work anymore ). Here's what I'm referring to:

Bestop Windjammer, Black (07-13 Wrangler JK 2 Door) 80031-35 - Free Shipping over $75!

and:

Bestop Duster Deck Cover, Black (07-13 Wrangler JK 2 Door) 90033-35 - Free Shipping over $75!

I don't really care for the Bikini tops, so that is why I'm wondering if these pieces would work with the Freedom panels. I don't have a soft top, just a hard top if that matters. Thanks.

Anyone? Also, can you leave the back seat in when using the Duster Deck Cover? Or will it 'flip up' & destroy the cover?

I've never done the panels with a jammer but it would work if that is what you are asking.

As far as the duster, as long as you did something to hold the seat down it would work. A simple sinch strap thru one of the seat eyelets and hooked to the cargo tie downs would be sufficient

I haven't seen anyone who runs the Freedom Panels like a bikini top, but there's no reason it shouldn't work. The Windjammer attaches to the roll bar with 4 straps, and they won't interfere with the Freedom Panels.

The Duster should fit just fine, since there is no soft top hardware on the Jeep to remove. The back seat should fold down enough for you to keep it on the Jeep. Just throw a bungee or cinch strap on it and it'll stay down.

I hope this helps! Let me know if I can answer any other questions.

I have ran the freedom panels without the back on. You just have to flip the little brace down on the back of the panel when you go to install them. Make for a nice hard bikini top. No clue on the windjammer though, I dont have one of those yet.

correct, you can use the Freedon panels as a sorta Hard Bikini Top... yes there is a small piece that you have to flip down before remounting the Freedon panels...
anything beyond that shoudl work, duster, windjammer etc.

You got a pic? I have a 2013 2-door and I can't seem to find it.

Thanks for all the help guys.....I'm still debating between doing the windjammer & dust cover with the freedom panels or just buying a Bestop Trextop NX....decisions, decisions.

I'm bumping this 'cuz I'm curious if anyone's done it yet. I've run my freedom panels as a bikini before but never tried it with the wrap around windjammer and duster. That'd be cool as hell.

EDIT - Can't be done with the wraparound 'cuz it needs door surrounds. Is the regular windjammer watertight?
