mesh safari bikini top for 2010 2DR ????
 
Need some help, I see Bestop has a safari bikini (covers rear seat also) for the 07 - 09 2 door wrangler in mesh, but not the 2010? Was there a change in the header or soft top between 09 and 10? Does anyone else make a mesh bikini?

thanks in advance.

Spiderweb makes a great mesh top. No header needed.

I have a Spiderweb, and it's worth every penny!

I have a SpiderWeb and a Dirty Dog. Both are GREAT! These don't require a Header, and will easily fit a 2010. Yes, they are Mesh!

Yes, there is a change. In 2010 the Jeep soft top is a "cable top" that uses a spring and cable system above the doors. Works great - you don't need to fit the little plastic "canards" on the door surrounds, it just snaps tight.

But it means that the all the other tops, like the Bikini, needed to be slightly redesigned.

Header is the same, it's just the bit above the doors.

If you haven't bought one yet I'd definitely go Spiderweb, my dirty dog top lasted about 3 months before it started to sag.
Total waste of $.
Just my .02.

Are there plans to redesign for the 2010+ model years?

Oh, we've already redesigned some of the Bikini's - you can get a 2010 Safari Bikini in black already. We just haven't come out with the mesh one yet.
