Do you have any info for it. Theres nothing about a new style model on Bestops page. Just the old model.

Are we talking about the Bestop Halftop setup? I'd love one and would run it all year if I could ensure no water would pool up on the tonneau. I just need to build my trunk to have the tonneau rest on it so it can't pool up.

wraparound windjammer

I'm not talking about the halftop. Go to Quadratec's website. click on Bestop accessories, thats where the windjammers are. you'll see the new wraparound style windjammers. what that means is that the entire cockpit is enclosed.of course you would be using a bikini to go with it

I read where someone was really criticizing that particular new product, he said it was extremely difficult to get it installed so it wasn't wrinkled and ill-fitting appearing. I think Bestop is the best so that one review I read was surprising to say the least.

You're right, the only product that was similar was made by Steelhorse but it was only out for a year or so before Steelhorse went bellyup 5-6 years ago. I have one of the ones made by Steelhorse. Similar in design but with thin fabric and medicore-at-best construction quality. Bestop is the only one making this kind of product now, one that wraps around the rollbar for a more weatherproof design.

I think I will try it.My jeep is totally a two seater. Since were on the subject bestop, did you see where they have come out with their version of the frameless soft top? think of Viking and you get my meaning. I spoke with bestop and they told me it's only available for 07/08 JK'S.

Haven't seen the frameless top Az but then I gloss over any catalog pages that talk about stuff for the JK.
