ajtudor I recently got the bestop safari top and I love it. Windshield channel was about $20 and the top was $80. Same channel can be use with a bikini top if you decide to change. Make sure you get the right part numbers because there are different mounting method. Bestop is your best bet.

flounder35 If you're dead set on the safari top, so be it. However, I just purchased a "combo pack" if you will from quadratec that had the bikini top (covers the front seats), wind jammer, and duster top for the back for about 250 shipped. I love it, it is a bestop. My buddy bought a bestop at least five years ago for his with the same setup except its a safari top instead of a bikini top. It has the bolt on Windshield channel (J bracket) and I haven't had a problem with it except the front of the bikini top is a little wider than the jeep. Other than that, it's been good to me so far. Go with Bestop!

sonofabeach that spidertop looks cool but I'm not so sure it would do good if caught in a light rain.
I still might get one though.

Jerry Bransford Personally I'd stick with Bestop as Smittybilt's stuff is now all made in China and their fabric is much thinner. If you want an extended bikini which I take it to mean you want it to extend over the back seat, that is commonly called a Safari top. Between the no-drill and drill-style header, I have both and MUCH (!!!!) prefer the simplicity of the drill header. Not to mention the drill-style header makes it much (!) easier and faster to install the bikini.

Extended Bikini Top

Hey everyone, I currantly only have a hard top for my TJ. I would like to get an Extended Bikini top for my jeep. I understand that I would need a Windshield Channel to do this. I was lookin at a Smittybilt Windshield Channel Part #90104, and the Smittybilt Extended Brief Top Part #936. For those of you who have used, or are using these products now please let me know what you think of them. I am looking at these products at Or if any of you know of a better product or brand please let me know.
Your help and opinions are greatly appreciated.
