The Traditional Bikini has classic old school styling using modern materials. Attaches to rear of vehicle via tie-down straps.Bestop invented the Bikini top and has been making them for over 50 years. They're still the favorite for good weather off road adventures. This bikini uses the stock windshield retainer, has long straps that attach at the back of the vehicle and has 2 snaps, one on each side of the windshield retainer. All mounting hardware is also included. This covers the drivers compartment only and connects to the footman loops in the rear of vehicle. Very retro, and it gets the job done
Be aware that the bikini top will not fit all CJ-5's. When I called about it not fitting I was told it was a difference in my CJ-5 and that the roll bars were not a standard size/position prior to 1980.
But this is my third bikini top from bestop, and the first that doesn't fit, and the last I will purchase since my return was refused.

Just don't forget to also buy the window channel the top slips into. It's not included with the bikini top. Luckily I had one from my full Bestop soft top so I didn't have to buy one. Fit's pretty good on a FJ40.

Bestop provided me with dimentions for this top #52505, they were 56 1/4" width at the front strip and 48" front to back. Specs on your website say different. Can you clarify ? My jeep is a 1964 CJ5.

If the Scout has never had a soft top or bikini top, will this top attach? I didn't know what it needed at the windshield.
