Will it fit a 1953 CJ3B?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
For a CJ-3B it will be a bit baggy on the sides but people will hem it up to work.

Hi, I have a 68 Kaiser Jeep M715. The M715 has a C channel that goes across the width of the windshield for attachment.. and I have a roll bar just behind the cab. Will this Bikini top fit in the C channel... also, do you know how wide it is, and how long it is. Thank you

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Email mike@kaiserwillys.com some photos and we can try to help.

Hello My 1969 Cj5 is equipped with a top bow frame and not a roll bar. Is it possible to mount the bikini top on a top bow frame. Has loops inside to hold the top bow frame bar in place because it's flexible and not fixed like a roll bar Thank you for your recommendation. Roland

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
More than likely it will work but you may have to adjust a few things to get it to mount in the back.

I have 1948 cj2a with a 1/4inch c channel across the top of the windshield. can you tell me what the critical measurements are to see if this will fit?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Email mike@kaiserwillys.com and we can help you out with.

Hi, how far back on my CJ-5 will this go, does it reach the back of the vehicle? Thanks, Tim

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It will hang down over your roll bar and then the straps will secure it.

I have a 46, want put a bikini top on it, I think the windshield is a later one, (it has the 'flap' in the center but no handle like my 52), will your top work on this??

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, but on a 46 it will be a bit baggy but could be hemmed up.

I have a 1952 Willys Jeep. How wide is this bikini top?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This is more for a CJ-5. It will be baggy on the sides a few inches. Some people are ok with it and some have it hemmed up a bit.

Hi. What are the Dimensions of the Top.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Not sure exactly what kind of measurements your looking for. Email mike@kaiserwillys.com to help.

I have a 1952 CJ3A. will this bikini top fit?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It will be a bit baggy on the sides on the CJ-3A. But some people are ok with it and some just hem it up.

I have a 1960 Willy’s CJ5. No roll-bar or top on it. For this bikini top, which windshield channel do I need to buy? And what hardware do I need for behind the seats if there is no roll-bar to lay the bikini top over? Thanks.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Your windshield should already have a channel in it from the factory. Please email mike@kaiserwillys.com some pictures so we can see what all you have going on. Thanks!

Hi can I make this fit a Mitsubishi J53 (CJ-3B) by adding a windshield channel?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It would fit but on a CJ-3B be a bit baggy so I would have it hemmed up a bit.

My '63 cj5 has an arched channel that I believe to be original , as i have seen it on others. Will this work with top that channel or will I need something different?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, that is original and it is made for it. Thanks!

Will this fit 1952 cj3a? Does it also come in Olive Drab?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, I'm sorry but this style bikini top only comes in black. It will work for the 3A. However, it is not made for the 3A which means that you will have to modify it just a bit. The top is made for the CJ-5 so installing it on the 3A will leave you with extra material on the sides that you'll have to pin up. That's really it. Thanks

Do you sell the bow assembly for a 1959 cj5? I see the top but not the bow assembly.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, we can set you up with a complete kit. Give us a call toll free and we can work it up for you. 888.648.4923. Thanks

Is there a kit to mount this on a cj2a?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You would have to make a mounting bracket between your frame rails to secure.

FIT for CJ-2A - does this fit in existing channel on top of windshield frame?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You would have to put a channel on top the windshield frame for it to slide into. The CJ-2A originally used 10 studs across the top.

Will this fit a 1961 CJ3B?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These fit a CJ-5. It can work for a CJ-3B but will need to be hemmed.

I have a 64 CJ-5 with a after market roll bar. What do I need to install Channels? If so what is the product number? Thanks Brett

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, we have a channel that goes into the top part of the windshield frame. Give us a call toll free and we can order one up for you. 888.648.4923 --Thanks

will it fit a 52 cj3a with a roll bar

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
It will work for the 3A however, it's originally made for the CJ-5 which is wider than the 3A. Basically, it will have extra material on the sides which you would need to pin or clamp up. As long as you're okay with this extra material, it will work just fine for you. Thanks

If I buy item #51595, will this bikini top fit over the same bow assembly?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
No, not typically. They are not designed together.

do you have the top in tan

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I'm sorry but as of right now the tan is on manufacturer back order. Give us a call toll free in a couple of weeks for an update. Thanks!

I have a 1960 CJ3B, will this fit?

Willys Tech:
This really is for the vehicles listed above only. It could be modified to fit the CJ-3B though. It will just be a bit baggy on the sides.

Does this top include the windshield channel?

Willys Tech:
The channel is a separate item. We do carry it. Please call us toll free.

I have a 1965 Tuxedo Park Mark IV - CJ5A and it has a removable hard shell and doors, but when removed, has no roll bar. Do you have a roll bar that can be installed that still allows for shell to be put back on in winter? Also, is there a bikini top os shade for it with metal bracing that I can put on it without a roll bar to stabilize?

Willys Tech:
A roll bar is something that can be made easliy locally. A local fab shop can make you one. That is the way to go.

I have a 52 m38 flat fender, will this work with my jeep and is there anything else I would need to install it?

Willys Tech:
This is for CJ-5 and M38A1. It will work but for the earlier jeeps but it will be baggy over the sides and a bit long for the M38. Its can be hemmed Im sure to fit.
