Depends which one you purchased as well. If it's Bestop and it only covers front and passenger, then you need the header mentioned above. If it's the safari bikini, which covers front and rear seats, you'll need a windshield channel that you must drill. Smittybilt has very inexpensive safari style bikini tops in which you DON'T need to drill, but need to purchase header identical to the one "wavebacktothetj" is talking about. Again, smittybilt bikini tops are way cheaper $$$ than Bestop. I've had both by the way.....currently have the smittybilt one....

This is not precisely correct. You can get a no-drill Safari style Bikini top. We sell both the no-drill and the drill-in windshield headers. You do need to make sure the Bikini top goes with the windshield channel it was designed for: they are not interchangeable.

I'm not sure I can answer this unless I see a picture of your Bikini top. There are a lot of different ones out there, and they all attach to the windshield in slightly different ways, depending on who made it (Mopar, Bestop, etc.).

Ahh! Good to know! I was always under the impression Bestop didn't offer the no-drill windshield header for safari bikini....thanks for clearing that up for me.....:D

no drill header for my '04 sport has 2 1/2 inch head screws that tighten clamps into where the latches for the soft top usually go. Have to remove and reinstall every time between soft top and bikini top. Once you have everything (assuming that yours attaches same as mine) have had the best luck LOOSELY attaching straps over speakers first, than tucking front into no drill header,than pulling just tight enough to give it shape, than tucking sides with velcro or door surrounds, pull back straps tight, and than last step is the center strap to the footman loop on windshield.
