Look up Bestop jeep wrangler safari Bikini Top on YouTube. Plenty of videos to show how to install. Very helpful.

I called Bestop directly for the top mine came with. Gave them the part number on it and they emailed me the instructions

That sounds like a safari top. Pretty much serves the same purpose though

I have a 2DR and I also have the safari bikini. I"m having a hard time tightening it to be as flat as the images and videos show. Quite a bit of sag above the front seats and flap above the rear. How is yours?

Byrd,
I would suggest checking the YouTube video if you already haven't, my top isn't shown in the video and I just assumed about the rear section but I do get flap. Now that I've have the tops for a while I've come to realize it may be time to save for some new ones haha

Glad I found this thread. I have a safari top that came in a box when I bought my jeep. May have to throw it on one of these days just to see if I have everything

This was helpful. Thanks, all. I ended up wrapping the strap around the roll bar once around, as tight as I could, and then fastening to the holes in the body as indicated on youtube and the instructions. I'll just assume all soft top related products come with instructions that get you roughly 80% there and the rest is just trial and error.

Thanks again!
