Length of bikini top

Okay folks, I need a favor from anybody that can help me.
I have an '89 Toyota 4Runner (old body style), and am looking to retro a bikini top. These aren't made for these vehicles, but I know a lot of folks that have fit YJ bikinis to them. This just barely fits to the rollbar, which is great, except leave back end open.
Can anybody out there tell me thge length (as close as possible, exact not necessary right now) the length of a BesTop Safari bikini? This is the one that covers the back as well as front.
I have spoken w/ a number od distributors, and even BesTop themselves, nobody can tell me...
...so, anybody have one they could measure real quick??

Thanks guys!

Re: Length of bikini top

Okay, so I got a buddy to measure the length of his TJ - says its 5'6" (66", right?) from inside of windsheild to outside of rear rollbar.. I assume a Safari top would be close to this, maybe a few inches shorter...

Question - is there a diff in this length btwn the TJ and YJ?
The 'yota guys suggest the bikin for the YJ if going the shorter route...
I'm hoping the YJ is a tad longer, as it looks like I'm gonna need something that is at least 70" long...

Alos, is there a "quality" diff btwn BestTop and Steelhorsse, or any other products, when it comes to bikini/safari tops?

Steal horse is crap. Go Besttop.
