Bestop bikini

What's the difference between the bikini for 97-02 and the one for 03-06?

The header. The 97-02 bolts on the inside and requires drilling. Good thing is I believe you can leave the header when you put your regular top on. 03-06 the header clamps on the top of the windshield frame and has to be removed to put the regular top up.

I believe there is write up on the forum somewhere about how to modify older style to fit an 03-06.

Can't answer that, but you did need to get the matching top for whatever you get. They are not interchangeable that I know of.
