im starting to get used to it...not as bad as I thought.
I realized a crapload of the flapping noise is coming from the rear seatbelts.

|Joel||I ran mine for a summer before getting tired of it. The thing I hated was the dew blowing back onto the windshield on the way in to work at 80mph in the morning. Now I just run the soft top and remove the windows. Just as good as the safari top and no dew blow-back in the mornings.|

post a picture. I'm wondering if you have the rear straps sinched correctly. I tighten mine down and there is no flapping. After a day or so of freeway driving it may loosen some and flap but not bad like your describing and I can retighten and its fine again.
The rearmost straps loop under the seatbelt retractor bracket bar.
If youve done that then you should only get some minor flapping at most.

|KBR97||no theres no rollbar padding.|
|06-02-2008 07:34 PM|
Do you still have your rear roll bar padding on? I've never been able to get mine tight either, until I took that junk off and used some heavy duty zip ties thru the material loop on the top itself. Then just wrapped the strap around it and tied it. That thing will not slide for nothin now.
Only problem with mine is the damn rocks keep gettin in the fawkin way and ripping it.

I cut a piece long enough so that each end will wrap a quarter way around the roll bar. I flattened the ends and bent them to fit the roll bar. I cut three holes in the back edge of the top and secure it to the tubing with velcro straps. The straps at the back corners of the top hold the bar in place.|

thats good then, thats what im mainly worried about,
|06-02-2008 04:38 PM|
yeah its pretty much as tight as it will be. i think I can get used to it thought so, we'll see. Im gonna try that thing with a piece of wood or plastic if I find a nice one.
Now its time to order the deck cover and windjammer...ooh baby.

|crafty||Did you retighten it after the sun had warmed it up?|
|06-02-2008 08:44 AM|
|dj_chizzle||had mine for 2 years and no complaints. yeah the material flaps and makes noise but not a deal breaker for me. as far as durability, i can see areas near the buckles where the stress points are when you tighten it down have a little bit of wear and i see myself replacing mine in another year or 2. still, i love it because i run it all spring/summer long and is extending the life of my soft top which is MUCH more expensive to replace.|

I had a buddy of mine sketch me sitting at my computer desk
while on WF, then we animated it. That was 2 weeks ago,
and my head still hurts.
|06-02-2008 12:05 AM|
hmm...ill have to see what I can come up with.
btw.. that cartoon is the coolest thing Ive seen.

You can use thin strips of wood, say...1 inch wide, 1/4" thick, and the length of distance between the top of the roll cage. Wedge them under the rear of the safari top until it's tight, and it wont flap anymore.
Its the same principle as using strips of wood or metal under a boat cover so that watter doesn't pool in when it rains and so it won't flap whilst driving.

Anyone hate their safari top?
I got my new bestop safari top in yesterday. Struggled with it this afternoon to get it on, Removed the complete soft top assembly, Jeep looks great.
Go out for a ride, and notice that any speeds over 30mph and the back of it flaps and is real abnoxious. The straps and everything is snug. I cant see the material lasting very long either taking all that abuse from flapping.
The only reason I bought the damn safari and not the regular bikini top is so that my soundbar is covered.
I might return it.....IDK
