Bekini Top/ Windjammer/ Duster to replace Hardtop

Hello all... New to forum and first post... Expect delivery of a new 2008 Wrangler 2 dr hardtop in a few weeks and will travel from Long Island, NY to St Aug, Florida. early Jan... In florida, plan to remove and store hardtop... Want to use the Bestop Bekini/ Windjammer/ Duster to keep out the weather when necessary... Anyone have experience using that combination??? If so, would like to know ease of installation and removal, space required to store the 3 pcs when not in use, ability to open tailgate with duster in place and effectiveness of the combination when traveling in the rain??? Thanking you in advance for your help in this matter... Bob C.

Half-top

I have plenty of experience with these items, and they are very easy to install, and once you get used to it you can take the bikini off and put it back on in about 3 minutes. When off it doesn't take up much room at all. The windjammer is more difficult to take down and put up. .... on the other side, the windjammer does not cover the whole outside, .... there is open space between the roll bar and the door, (if that makes sense), and if the rain is coming in just right it gets right in, ..... and the bikini lets small amounts of water in though the sides, .... this was not much of a problem most of the time, ... but two times the elements successfully turned the jeep into a swimming pool.

I was a little upset because I paid $350 for these pieces, ... but the jeep looked really good with them on.

St. Aug. is a nice area. Best of all, no shoveling in the freezing cold!
Sorry you couldn't find the site. It's www.offroadheros.com/. Customer service said more tops on there soon. Good price on my 2 door top.
Good luck!
