Tough to install

Did not like the difficulty of installing it. Great if you plan on leaving it on for long periods of time, but bad if you justbuse it for a day at a time.

Not what i thought it would be.

I bought this windshield channel after purchasing the Best top Bikini top for my 2001 TJ. While reading about the bikini top, the instructions weren't clear and didn't mention needing this windshield channel. After the bikini top arrived, we quickly realized that the channel was required. (Poor design and not properly mentioned in the description of their products). So we ordered the windshield channel and it arrived shortly there after. Installation was simple but the bikini top didn't fit like described. To my disappointment the soft top doesn't fasten to the windshield channel. So if you're ever caught in a rain, one would have to unbolt the windshield channel from the vehicle in order to put the soft top back on. I'm dissatisfied so everything is being returned.
