1.0Probably wouldn’t buy again...
Out of the 7+ bikini tops I’ve had over the years, this one is BY FAR the worst fitting. Would return it but I had to install it to figure that out, and it got scuffed up. That, and it was like pulling teeth trying to get this thing in stock at my Overland Park 4WP store.

2.0Don't do it!
Don't purchase one of these unless you're one of those people who loves being frustrated by something that doesn't attach like it should. I've had one for three years and I have no idea why I'm still using it. The problem is in Step 1 of the instructions when it says to insert the tab on the front of the Top into the channel. Sounds easy, right? The thing it doesn't tell you is that the channel bends down and back on the ends and the tab can only be bent down - and not back.
I somewhat solved this by cutting a v-notch in the tab on each end of the Top to allow it to bend toward the back but even now it doesn't fit right.
In addition, there are two velcro flaps on each side that wraps around the roll bar to hold the sides of the Top in place. Those flaps would probably work fine if there were no padding on the roll bar butas it is there's a lot of stretching (and swearing) involved to get the two pieces of the flaps to meet so the velcro can attach to itself, and even then only about half the velcro meets the other flap.
I had a YJ prior to my TJ and I could install the top on the YJ in 5 minutes in a rainstorm. This one takes 15-20 minutes.
