Bestop Halftop??
 
Question... The bestop halftop has a sealed cockpit and is good thru 2002 models. I have a 2005. What would be the same thing with the sealed cockpit for my jeep? I love the duster, bikini, windjammer combo, but don't want to worry about stuff getting in the cockpit area.

Thanks in advance.

There was a recent post about this.The deal is 2003-2006 TJs have different roll bar foam that is different,and not designed to be constantly exposed,as well as different thickness.I was eyeing this myself for my 2003,and even had a guy on here who was going to sell me his for $350.00,but I got scared because of all the issues.I have the bikini/windjammer/trailduster,but it isn't water-tight.I f I had the cabbage,I would do the AEV Brute permanent half cab in a heartbeat,but it is VERY expensive!

I used to run a safari, wrap-around windjammer, and duster from Bestop. Really good combo as the safari top helps to seal things up near the center bar. If you went that route I would make sure you get a safari top that uses the no-drill header.

I had to modify the wrap-around windjammer with how I used to have the mountaineer rack mounted, so it would leak right there where holes were cut, but it was a good set up.

Thank you both for the info... I want that setup so bad... I will have to look into the AEV brute.

Keebler... Nice jeep. Thanks for the advice.
