Trektop NX question

Like to get some of yall's thoughts on the trektop nx. My factory top is about done. Time for a new one. I like the look of the NX. Anyone have one? Any thoughts?

We run one on our JKU. Great top. The only down side is you can't really "take the top down". You can take the windows out and you can use the sunrider feature but that is about it without uninstalling the top. From the b-pillar back, it is designed to stay on like a bikini top.

We have them in stock though and ready to ship.

I think it's really a cool idea but don't care for the fastback shape, personally. I need every cubic inch of cargo space.

Love mine but you loose a lot of available storage on a four door.

Love mine. I agree with what was said above. If you like put the top all the way down, the Trektop isn't for you. You also lose some storage space back there, which I was quite worried about that at first. But after two years, I've yet to find that actually be an issue. One big upside is it really improves your rearward visibility by getting rid of the D pillar. I don't think I could go back to a stock style top now.

I have a 2dr. Storage is not an issue. I have none. I want to know if the fit is good and if it is as quiet as the factory soft top? I have seen a video where the whole top is folded on top the sound bar.

Mine has a wind noise at the header bar that I've never been able to cure, but I believe that's unique to mine, and not a widespread problem. You can fold the front part back much like the sunrider portion of the stock top, but you cannot fold it all the way down like the stocker. Honestly, with a two door, I wouldn't bother. I would just find the cheapest replacement top I could. On a four door, it really makes a difference in the look of the jeep. I don't find much difference on a two door.

Mines reasonably quiet until I get above 70 mph.

just wanted to chime in here.....

I have had a trek top nx almost since the jeep was new. I think it might have been the first or second mod.

Install was easy. I did it on a warm cali day.

Customer support has been great. A lot of parts have already been replaced. The top was creaking so they sent me a new top and header rail. The door frames busted. They replaced one or two. And then they busted again and bestop also changed the design and sent me the wrong part so they ended up replacing all 4 parts of the door frames (I have a 4 door). What happes is the little D rings that the cross rails pop into break off. The updated design uses thicker plastic there (maybe double) plus some molded-in gussets. Much stronger design.

The top is very quiet and I am a bit picky on that. When the top is off, I don't give a crap but when there is a top on it, it needs to be quiet. It is about as quiet as my hard top. Interestingly, when you just have the top on as a safari top (no side or rear windows), it is still pretty quiet.

While you do loose cargo space, this has not been an issue for me personally. I have an ARB fridge and I just run it horizontally when installed. If I have to carry some large cargo, I just unzip and or completely remove the rear window and deal with it. But I am in cali so don't have a lot of bad weather to deal with.

I like the tip so much that I am even considering ditching the hard top altogether and doing an upgrade to the twill material to get even more of a reduction in noise. If you do the material only upgrade, the rest of your hard parts get upgraded to the lifetime warranty too (versus the standard warranty on the regular material).

I love mine. I'm not worried about the sunrider only coming back to the b-pillar. I'm the only one that drives in it. I love the bikini top.

It goes back further than the b pillar on a 4 door if you pull the bar above the sound bar.

I just put one on my 2 door last weekend. It is quieter than the soft top I took off. If you wanted the whole top off, it would only take a couple minutes. Pull the two quick disconnects and four straps it would be off.
I installed mine at 50 degrees and had it done in about 40 minutes, once I had it mostly on, I cranked the heat and everything loosened up and it fit prefect.
