Features
BESTOP® NO-DRILL HEADER BIKINI™ TOPS, TARGA STYLE
  • Cover front seat area only, easy to install, and to remove
  • Solid-color versions in factory-matching colors
  • Illustrated instructions included
Bestop invented the Bikini™ Top and has been making them for over 50 years. Available for 97-up Wranglers. Still the favorite for good weather off road adventures. Made with premium fabric and industrial grade thread and fasteners. Our solid-color Bikini™ Tops last longer and maintain shape and fit because they use factory-spec fabric, the same used in our factory soft tops. Our Mesh Bikini Tops feature non-factory type open-weave vinyl fabric that allows for airflow and increased light penetration through the fabric for a brighter ride. Mesh material does allow water to pass through. Bikini™ Tops come with industrial-grade buckles and webbing. Require Header-style Windshield Channels (sold separately) to install:

97-06 Wrangler TJ require Bestop # 51238-01 to install

07-10 Wrangler JK require Windshield Channel #51243-01 to install

" The product is well made and the quality is fine. But the design of the groove and the plastic piece at the leading edge of the top is bad. It would be so much better and easier to install if the groove was composed of a tubular section with a slot and the plastic leading edge of the top had a cylindrical shape (like the connection on the door bar of the toneau cover or the bolt rope on a sail). This would make installation a breeze and also offer a convenient way to make the top easy to take off /on. "

" I have an 08 Wrangler soft top. my summer top for years was the Bestop Safari bikini but now living in coast area, bikini tops, along with the duster (and the jammer when it rains) are my primary top. When I bought the Jeep new, I bought a Safari Bikini top and fought with it for years. The back straps that go under the seatbelt mounts and onto bar, loosen easily and the wind plays havoc with the fabric over the back two seats even when tight. I tried every way imaginable to make the straps stay and finally found that strong tarp clips would keep them from loosening. The top finally wore out and the back straps snapped so I decided to go with the standard Bikini. PERFECT! No more fighting the straps or the wind noise created by the extra fabric on the Safari. If you are trying to decide between the two, trust me, go with the standard bikini. The safari is good in design but not that great in real world everyday driving. Love the open air bikini. bestop cant be beat. "

" The plastic insert that fits into the window channel is difficult to get to stay in, if you follow the instructions. I had to connect the long center strap so that I could tighten the top to get the insert to stay in the channel. Once I got it in the entire channel, the rest was easy! "
Pros: Great looking, sturdy, easy to adjust
Cons: Difficult for 1 person to install by themselves

" The top seems to wide for my 2004 TJ so there is a little extra hanging over each side of the windsheild which might interfere with the door opening/closing. The passenger side front corner wont wrap around the bend of the windsheild channel well and is therefore not held securely in the channel. Only time will tell if the wind will get under that corner and peel the whole thing off driving down the road. The top itself seems to be well constructed even if not sized just right. Very hard to install alone but once its on it looks good, except in the front corners around the double fold where its a little wrinkled and lumpy. The straps for the rear corner anchors are just long enough and take a little extra effort to get tight because there is no extra to spare. Hopefully this isnt something I have to take on and off alot but once its on it does its job. "
Pros: quality seems good, looks good (minus the "double fold" areas in the front
Cons: difficult to install alone, not the best fit
