Hey guys I was just cruising craigslist and someone is selling a strapless bikini top with a windshield channel for 35 bucks. I went on the bestop website and according to the part number from the picture it's made for a 97-02 Wrangler..and they don't make them for newer wranglers. Does anyone have any experience with, or know off hand if this would fit something newer? I have an '05 Unlimited...if I can put it on with little or no modification I think I'll pick it up..

If the windshield channel (also commonly called the header) is the type the requires you drill holes into the windshield frame for its mounting screws, which is actually the type I prefer, it won't fit your '05 without extra work. The plastic trim around the inside of the windhield frame is in the way for that type of header. I made that type of header work with my '04 but it took a while which involved removing the plastic trim from the top of the windshield frame. I was able to replace the plastic back over the top of the new channel with some extra work.

They have a no drill style that works pretty well.
