Product seems good, installation is a pain
September 8, 2018
The product is good and I am sure I will enjoy it through the summer.Installation is not fun and took about an hour. I understand that a tight fit is important but it was so tight that the holes did not line up correctly and it was very hard to line up the bolts. I would suggest putting the screen in the hot sun for an hour to make it easy to work with.The You Tube video needs to be updated. The straps that I received were different from the video and there were less buckles than were shown. Maybe I have missing parts? I have a 4 door so he did not show where to screw the back straps. The instruction book is lame and should have real pictures, not primitive drawings.Also, it would be good to make the straps that are attached to the back of the screen about 2 inches longer to make it easier to loop through the buckles.I would give the product a 10, but the installation, instruction book and You Tube video a 3.
ProsTight fit so it will not flap in the wind. Blocks sun well, and I can keep the screen on with my soft or hard top.
ConsInstallation, instruction book, and Bestop You Tube video.
Not a perfect fit, but still makes for an enjoyable open-air ride

I really wanted to be able to ride with the top open, but still have some protection from the sun, as well as falling tree buds and leaves during the spring and autumn, and the bikini top certainly has provided that. Installation was a challenge, as the holes on the top don't quite perfectly align with the corresponding positions on the top of the Wrangler. Although the directions provided with the kit state that install should take approximately 15 minutes, I spent well over an hour and actually had one of the straps snap off on my initial attempt. Fortunately, both the J4J and Bestop customer service staff were very helpful in replacing my order. The second installation was much more successful, and I have being enjoying the ride ever since!
ProsEnjoyable open-air driving experience; decent sun/debris protection
ConsInstallation is not as simple or time-efficient as the kit's directions indicate; not a perfect fit to the top of the Wrangler, but manageable.
