Are you using the door surrounds with it?

ndrugby They probably don't make them like that anymore because of the roll cage. The old Jeeps had the angles in the back so the straps were parallel. I think they may be odd looking and harder to create that way with the squared off roll cage.

My TJ bikini top didn't have those either. And it was a nightmare to get on and off, and needed that drilled in header bar.

I wised up and got a Spiderweb Shade this time. That thing is great if you don't mind mesh/don't want rain protection. Easy to put on, can pretty much leave it on with the top. The only thing I don't like is that it sits down further than other tops: in between the bars, not on top of them. That's a couple of inches of headroom given up.

Good luck in your search.

You can always add the cargo area part later. I don't think the price difference is too much if you buy them separately.

lolpetewtf I talked to Bestop. They only make the strap version for the CJ. No JK! Might have to fab something up. Any other brands to look into?

3TimeOwner had 1 on my YJ, while they may look cool, they are not too functional. You can't get the straps in back tight enough to keep the top from sagging during a downpour. Happened several times, where the middle looked like a swimming pool after the rain stopped. also - very very very floppy at highway speeds.

GonzoBobH Since my JKU is in transit, it's time I started looking for a bikini top. The one you linked to would be prefect. I wonder if there are other brands offering equivalent tops?

Nothing about a JK though.

Looking for a bikini like this:

Amazon.com: Bestop 52508-01 Traditional Bikini Black Top: Automotive

With rear straps. Does not look like Bestop makes one for the JK. Thanks.
