Bikini top question..

im aloud 1 stupid question a night so here goes. my TJ is a 98 model and has a soft top. do i need to buy a header bar for my bikini top or am i missing something here. i do not see anything that the bikini top would hook into but everything i see says if you have a factory soft top you dont need a header.

I have a 98 w/hardtop so I needed the header and it's just a channel the the bikini top slides into, so if your factory top uses a channel you should be good to go.

Hope this helps

my soft top doesnt use a channel. It has 2 hooks that hook into the windshield frame behind the sun visors

The hooks on your soft top are part of the header. I don't know for sure, but I'd say you need a header for your bikini top...

I agree you will probably need the header for the bikini.

you need a header channel. there are two types. one you have to take off and one that you screw into your wendshield and it stays on the other you have to take off every time you want to put your soft top back on.
