How is it that a 3/4 length bikini top that shades the back seat isn't readily available? Anyone know where to get one or do they have to be made? Has anyone retrofitted one from one of the jk's or such that are longer?

Looks like the rear uses a bow like a Bimini top for a boat. Any boat canvas shop should be able to make one realitivly easy. Bonus is they can make it in almost any color.

There used to be one available. I think it was actually call the Safari Top. I guess they didn't sell many so they stopped making am I thought it was a good product

I made one out of awning material to cover the family style roll cage I built. Pretty easy to make if you have a sewing machine and know how to use it.

You might check with that guy in Idaho making tops. He posted here last week looking for a CJ8 to fit a soft top to.

I have a full length cage on my Scrambler and a yj Safari top extends back as far as the one on Bigwalton's. It is a Bestow brand.

I had one made at a local upholstery shop. Had to sacrifice the plastic insert that goes into the windshield channel from an older shade but the new one works great! The top set me back $50.

Excuse all the crap in this old photo!

What size tires are you running, Jeff?

Thanks. I liked the stance and thought it might be bigger. I'm going with 32" so it'll be just a bit shorter. The trailer looks a little shorter, no?
Yes, trailer is sitting on 31x10.50's on 15x7" rims, I did not want to get too large after I flipped the axles because I felt it would be top heavy. This set-up seems to work really well.
