I've also run a drill-style header with bikini top and safari top, a no-drill style header with bikini top, and a Mopar bikini top that had a factory header bar (rare but awesome!).

This TJ is an 02. I previously had a 99 and never noticed a difference between soft top headers.
Thanks for the help on the drill in header though. I kinda had a felling thats what it was

|ClearH2O||This may be a stupid question but with a soft top do you need a header? When I installed a new soft top from bestop there was no header that attached to the window frame.|

|coletrickle||I am not sure, but it kinda looks as if someone put that screw on type lower header on to accomadate the newer roofs upper header bar. I have an 03 and my header looks like yours on the upper part. The lower part is different. I have a guy I know who has a 99 and he saw my header and said his was different. I have not acctually looked at his. I just suspect that this is the case.|

|Iceman||Forgive my ignorance here I've never used that type of header. Can you leave it on the windshield with the soft top up or a hard top on? Or do you have to take it on and off?|

Definitely a "drill-style" header for a bikini or safari top. It looks like it is one piece. If it is, it is the one from Mopar. Bestop sells the same thing, but theirs comes in two pieces (I'm sure to save on shipping).
Look to Bestop or Mopar for a bikini top or safari top made for the drill-style header.
I personally have run this style on all of my TJs. I like having the header bar always installed and ready to go. It's one less thing to store. You also have the benefit of stashing the bikini top in the Jeep and being able to install it in a pinch.

|Iceman||Looks like the standard screw-in type header that uses the rib type bikini tops to me.|

|IROCthe4.0L||Thats what im talking about, the screwed in metal header below the soft top header|

|arcountryboy||If your referring the the screwed on metal channel, it looks identical to the one that is for my bestop safari top.|

It appears that is the header that is part of your soft top. It does not come off the top, it is attached.
There are two kinds of headers, one you drill in and one that is no drill and uses those same clamp holes. You can use either header, you just have to buy the type top that works with the same type header.
FWIW, I have the same kind of soft top. I removed it, bought the header that clamps on, and bought a HEADER safari top. If it doesn't say header, it works with the drill in type.

What kind of windshield header is this?
Just notices my jeep already has a header for a safari top. Any ideas which it is or more importantly will it work with a best top?
