Jeep Duster

I really want to do this to my jeep. Do they make this for the JK? I really think it would be pretty sweet. How much do you think this costs and what can i do to make it rainproof?

Bestop makes it for jk. I had the top piece and hated it. I never bought the rear window part. I kept the duster and love it.

Why'd you hate it if you don't mind me asking?

My BF has this for his TJ but his is a complete cab cover and he uses it all year long (no leaks...ever). It's great because he can flip the cab part back and BOOM, you are roofless. it's so quick. I got this for him about 5 years ago for his b-day and it was $500-$550

Thanks for spending the time to copy and paste all these links.
I think i may go with the adhoc piece so i can just add as the money becomes available.

i like the the look also but after you add everything up, you might as well by a softop. i chose not to go the 3 piece route because you need to buy a bogus soundbar cap for it to be water tight. enter each product in the search bar for more infomation

i also didnt have door surrounds so i got the trektop nx since it came with everything

It flaps and the straps kept coming loose. It was on a jku so I don't know if it is as bad for the two door

I know the tj and the jk are two different animals but I went with the "adhoc" and its quieter than my soft top and its more water tight than the one that you buy all at once.

Well I have the "BesTop" Bikini and would like the windjammer, but looking at the photos on line it seems as if the seats have to be in front of the cross member to make it look like the photo on line? And mine recline way past that?

I would love some feedback, because I really don't need water tight, but if I could swap door to get good, not great A/C and Heat that would make me very happy. I have the Hard Top on Ice and want to keep it that way.

Here is what I have now, except the rear window "Safari Straps".

You can put your seats all the way back it wont ruin it but you will have a slight low spot right behind your seat

Pros. It keeps things dry, keeps things out of the sun, and keeps things out of the eye from the public

Cons. Water pools on top and it can leak around the rear section of roll bars

and its fine for the rollbars covers (on the actual bar) to get wet?

Mine has been getting wet since feb. of this year and march of last year and some winters I use the wraparound windjammer all year so it gets wet all year, and the dont smell and they arent molded or rotted the only thing is they are faded due to the sun but thats normal
