The 52593 is the cable style bikini you can only use it conjunction with the door surrounds that come with the soft top. It basically has a cable that pulls back over the surrounds and creates a tighter fit if you have your doors on and less flapping all the time than the regular non cable style bikini-
Here's a link to another thread where there are pictures of the cable style bikini

|NoCal12||Well...I am confused as hell on which bikini I should have for my '12 JK 2dr. I have ordered the 51243 which comes with a channel that you snap the bikini on to. The 52593 somes with a channel that has the bikini material already connected to the channel. They are both for '10's. Morris 4 X 4 said they would contact Bestop Monday and see which one is for my jeep and why. My jeep came with a soft top.|

How do you like the bestop bikini? I am looking at getting one for the summer rather than having my softop in the jeep for extra room and the fact that it looks cleaner with the dustop cover. I have heard mixed reviews on them from flapping ect. but mostly for 2 door owners... Thanks bro..

|pozer||I just bought Bestop bikini and door surrounds for my '12 Unlimited. The bikini doesn't attach to the surrounds, but they overhang it enough to channel water into the surround's gutter, and has worked great in the rain. From your pix it seems your bikini is not overhanging enough, so must be a different one than I have. Or maybe a 2-door/4-door product difference ?|

Looks like you have the wrong door surrounds... The surrounds you need are the ones with the lip that that plastic piece kind "Snaps" into. kinda like these (but this is a TJ)

I ran the Bikini/Windjammer/Duster combo for a while and to me it looks like you have the Bestop Door Surrounds when you actually need the Mopar ones. The Bestop ones do not have the channel that you need to fold the black plastic strip from the Bikini in to.
I had to buy this to make my set up work correctly.

I know it says for 07-09 but I drive an '10 and it worked just fine.

|Vin||exactly, but the bikini for the '10s and newer don't connect to the door surround. The '07-'09s wrap around like the soft top side windows do to attach to the door surround.|

|rics1997||Need pics of the bikini top were it meets the door surround and the door surround channel to get a better idea. There are just too many door surrounds and two tops to make a reasonable guess without some good pics of each|

|Zarkstrife||I bought it from a fellow forum member, his JK is a 10. The door surrounds I got stated that they are ment for cable style soft tops which is the new system updated in 10 as well.|

|Vin||What year is your Bikini top meant for? The '07-'09s are different from the'10-present.|

Bestop Bikini and Bestop Door Surround problem
So I finally got all the parts together for my summer combo. Bestop duster (love it), Wraparound windjammer and bikini. I have been running it for a few weeks until I had money to buy door surrounds. I only have a hard top so I need this combo to be as waterproof as possible. I ordered the bestop JK door surrounds for my 12 2door. I double checked with q-tec to make sure they would work with the bikini and I was informed they would.
I installed the door surrounds but I can not get the bikini to attach to the top part of the door surround. Is there something I am missing? Does the bestop surrounds even work with the bikini?
Thanks for the Help.
