I'm glad to hear it! Have you had any seepage issues?

Meshugga I believe they are all the same in the end. I have a bikini and soft top and they both fit into the single piece channel that was on my jeep when I bought it (used).

The second link looks like the best bet, but I'd rather have a single piece myself. This one looks good.

I had to silicone mine due to seepage at highway speeds. If you're counting on going back to a hardtop, though, that wouldn't be a good idea. Maybe a gasket of some sort if you run into the same issue?

Oz82 Without seeing what you're looking at, I'd be careful to say that it's the same. However, my bikini and regular soft top both use the same channel over the windshield.

Soft top header bow

Got my hard top off recently and am not able to out the soft top on as I am missing the header panel. Not sure what they call it on Jeeps, but the piece that the front part of the top tucks into. I see new ones available from quadratec, but they say they are all only for bikini tops. Are there any differences from the stock one or are they just described that way for bikini top conversions? My jeep has been getting really wet lately and needs the top up haha.

Thanks.
