  • bestop Windshield Channel install....?

    Yeah! I got my safari top in today as well as my bestop windsheild channel. So I took off the hardtop today.. I think I removed all the hardtop only pieces.. but now there is still a 'upper weatherstrip' on the top of my windsheild frame.. I am scared to remove that. I don't know if that is hardtop only piece (and needs to be removed).

    So, this is what I have:

    Do I need to remove the 'upper weathersheild to install my windsheild channel + safari top?


    thanks!

    No!!!

    Do not remove anything from the windshield...that is the rubber strip that the bar is supposed to press down on to prevent rain from coming in. Bestop has very detailed pictures of the bar install in their instructions...didn't you get them??

    What Jeep do you have (TJ...1997-2001??)....and what safari top did you get?? I take it you ordered the bar separately here as 4WD.com suggests??

      thanks!

        different version

        Sorry....I had bought a Supertop at the same time, so I have the non drill channel. Still looks like you have installed it correctly. Your safari top will have the bar on the front edge that will compress over the rubber gasket to prevent leaks.

        My bar is a permanent fixture over the gasket as my soft top as well as my safari top simply slide into the bar channel.
